Sonlight Level D (Week 33)

BIBLE:

Memory Verse:

Since we were a little behind, I printed the tracers for verses 4-6.

The boys traced one verse each day and added them in their Bible notebook.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

Morse Code:

Since we were learning about Philip Morse, I printed the morse code alphabet.

All three kids were interested in this activity. Haley and Parker were passing messages in morse code.

Bub has always been interested in Morse code. He brought out his electrical circuit kit to try to make a connection that he could transmit morse code with. These are the moments I cherish, because I see a spark, the love of learning.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

5th Grade:

This week Jordan and I reviewed restrictive and non-restrictive clauses and phrases.

We reviewed them as well as interjections using his Grammar Ace notebook.

3rd Grade:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created a Garden Fun themed Grammar Grab Bag for this week’s language arts activities.

Spelling:

I printed his spelling cards, letter tiles and spelling mat (in GGB).

This week we reviewed synonyms. I said a word aloud and he built a matching synonym.

Next, Parker organized his words by syllable count.

Then we separated his words by the number of syllables and he wrote them in alphabetical order.

The following day, he completed his spelling word search (in GGB).

It’s vs. Its:

This week we reviewed that we use “its” to show possession and “it’s” when we can substitute the words “it is”.

After reviewing the concept, Parker completed his worksheet (in GGB).

Reading:

We added ocean themed books for a great summer reading shelf.

We read several beach themed books this week.

SCIENCE:

Plant & Animal Cell Cookies:

I remember the first cell cookie I made with my daughter, Haley. I always think it’s fun to explore science with hands-on activities.

I set out two cookies, a plant cell and an animal cell.

Parker made his edible cells and gobbled them up.

Nature Cafe:

We decided to order Thai food at the end of the week.

We read excerpts from Food of Thailand on our Epic app. The food was so pretty with a great variety of proteins and vegetables.

Such a colorful variety of dishes. It seemed fitting after learning about plant and animal cells all week long.
