Starting Strong:

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar:

I created a Apple Farm themed Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s language arts activities.

Spelling:

I printed our spelling cards, letter tiles, spelling mat, and coordinated worksheets (in GGB).

First, Parker and I reviewed the previous week’s spelling rules.

Afterwards, Parker practiced building a word that exemplified one of the spelling rules.

Using his cards, Parker practiced writing his spelling words.

Compound Words:

I set out our Sheep Compound Word match (in GGB).

Parker created compound words by placing the sheep card with its matching wheat card.

Then, he filled out the compound word equation worksheet (in GGB).

Afterwards, Parker used his dot paints to complete his Chicken & Feed Compound Words worksheets (in GGB).

Grammar Ace:

This week, Parker learned about adverbs in his Grammar Ace program.

This week, I created a fall themed lapbook layout. I set out the lapbook components.

Parker matched the “In a Nutshell” vocabulary terms with the correct definitions

We’ll add to it next week with the second adverb lesson.

Reading:

I updated our reading shelf with some fall selections.

Since we celebrated the first week of fall, we read some seasonal favorites!

Creative Writing:

After reading Leaf Man, I felt inspired to center our creative writing assignment around this whimsical story.

We really should’ve gone on a leaf hunt and used real leaves, but it was hot and there weren’t many fallen leaves yet. So, I brought out our paper leaves instead.

The boys created their own leaf creature and used it as inspiration for creating their fall poem.

Parker wrote a haiku while Jordan wrote a narrative piece.

SCIENCE:

TOPs #4:

We had some catching up to do. So the boys each took one experiment to conduct and the other to observe.

Parker and I set up the fourth experiment. The boys took turns winding the magnets and recording their observations.

TOPs #5:

Bub and I set up his experiment. He conducted it while both boys recorded their observations.

This was simple, but it was really cool. We took a couple of videos.

Here’s the paper not interfering with the magnetic field.

Here’s the paperclip disrupting the magnetic field.

JUST FOR FUN:

This week we welcomed the wonderful season of Autumn. I remember celebrating autumn with our homeschooling friends six years ago!

Autumn Party:

Haley wanted to throw an autumn party with a woodland theme. She pinned festive treats, activities, and invited her friends.

We laid out the dessert buffet, set the table and waited for our guests to arrive. Everyone pitched in to make the party a great celebration. It was so much fun!

The kids nibbled on snacks, created autumn art projects, and listened to fall-themed read-alouds. It was such fun!

Fall Party:

Though our party wasn’t as elaborate as the previous one, it was still such a treat! We bought some festive snacks and treats for our party.

Everyone munched on the snacks while chatting, laughing, and having a grand old time. Afterwards, they played charades.

I prepared an autumn sensory bin, because it is one of our many traditions during this season. I added some natural wood tools I bought online.

The kids had such a fun time playing and telling stories in the autumn sensory bin. It was nice to slow down, laugh, and enjoy each other’s company.
