I printed the last verse (verse 11) of our Psalm 42 tracer pack.

On Monday, the boys traced, illustrated, and added their verse to their Bible notebook. They recited all eleven verses at the end of the day! Way to end the year, boys!
Grammar Grab Bag:
I created a Fun in the Sun Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s language arts activity.

After building on the spelling mat, Parker completed the scavenger hunt.
The following day, he completed his spelling word search.
Parker put his spelling words in alphabetical order.
We wrapped up our week with many wonderful books centered around the ocean.
I created a calendar pack for May, June, and July.

Oops! I forgot to have the kids do their May calendar work. This week, they completed both May and June!
This week, Parker started a new chapter on Area. Using our math tiles, we created shapes and calculated the area.
This week we celebrated World Ocean day and tried to tie it into our learning activities.
I thought it would be fun to make an ocean food chain since Parker was learning about food chains in biology.
First, we read Who Eats What? Ocean Food Chains on our Epic app.
Afterwards, I sketched some ocean plants and animals for Parker to paint. I cut them out after they dried.
Parks and I put together a paper chain then added his ocean food chain pictures. It look out really nice!
He also filled out a food chain lapbook insert from our Wish For a Fish printable.
JUST FOR FUN:
I set out several fun learning trays for the kids to do this week.
The kids had fun working on the ocean trays.
We also read The Ocean Story and How Deep in the Ocean? on our Epic app.
With a little borax, Haley and I fixed our watery ocean slime that we made last year.
Jordan tested and approved it! We had three beautiful shades of ocean slime to use all summer!
The kids had fun squishing, squelching, and pressing our ocean toob animals into the ocean slime.
We read about the deepest part of the ocean and the kids played with ocean slime.
With a few not-so-healthy ingredients, the kids could build trenchies, red tube worms (mini marshmallows on a toothpick with a Swedish Fish head on top) with on a murky sea bed.
They loved making AND eating their trenchies!
We finished our school week and school year with a delicious Sushi dinner.
That’s all for this year! We’ll see you next year as we make our way through Sonlight Level E!
