I printed the fourth and fifth verse for the boys to trace and memorize this week.

On Monday, the boys read Psalm 103:1-5 twice then traced the fourth verse.
On Tuesday, the boys read Psalm 103:1-5 twice and traced the fifth verse. On Thursday, the boys recited the first five verses by heart.
As we studied chapter 2, we read the story of Peter walking on the water towards Jesus. All went well as long as Peter kept his eyes on Jesus. This was a wonderful springboard to just talk about our own experiences. We talked about focusing on Christ, especially when the devil whispers doubts and fears to disturb and distract us.
After our lesson, the boys added their stickers and sketched their pictures/notes Nu in the book.
6th Grade Grammar:
This week, Jordan wrote a “friendly letter” to grandma. Rather than hand it to Papa, he wanted it to be extra special by sending it in the mail.
Rather than handing it to her, he wanted to send it in the mail. He said it would make her feel special to receive a letter in the mail. Honestly, I agree!
4th Grade Grammar:
I created a Back to School themed Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this weeks language arts activities.

I set out our spelling cards, letters, and spelling mat. (in GGB).
We reviewed suffixes this week. I asked Parker to create a new word by using a root word and a different suffix.
Parker used his spelling cards to practice writing his spelling words.
The next day, Parker used his cards to complete his spelling sentences. On Wednesday, he took his pretest, passed it, and was able to skip the actual on Thursday!
I set out the apple tree suffix activity on our Learning Lane (in GGB).
Parker used the apple root word cards with the apple tree suffixes to see how many words he could form. As he formed the words, I wrote them on our white board.
Afterwards, Parker completed the Apple Tree Suffixes worksheet (in GGB).
We reviewed our lesson on how to make words plural. Normally, we add ‘s’, sometimes we add ‘es’, and other times we use another word (e.g. child and children).
Parker completed the plural worksheets by using his dot paints to select an ending to a singular word and write the plural form.
This week, we learned about verbs in our Grammar Ace program.
We watched the Schoolhouse Rock verbs clip.
Since we were still rowing Swashby and the Sea, I prepared under the sea theme lapbook inserts this week.
Parker matched the “in a nutshell” word to the proper definition.
This particular Usborne book is a little dry, so we used our magnets as we read through it.
JUST FOR FUN:
Apple Tasting Tree:
This week we started our apple tasting tree. It’s always fun to welcome the fall season with special classroom traditions like this one.
They used our printable apples to color each variety.
Haley put up the first apple of the season, the honey crisp.
