We practiced Psalm 103 all week and the boys recited by memory on Thursday. They were both happy and relieved to pass this large memory assignment.
This week, we completed our third chapter on multiples and factors.
We added one more term in our math lapbook.
It turned out colorful and fun. This will come in handy as he reviews past lessons before taking a comprehensive math test.
Grammar Grab Bag:
I created a Fall on the Farm themed Grammar Grab Bag for this week’s language arts activities.
You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.
I set out the spelling cards, letter tiles, spelling rule and spelling mat (in GGB).
Parker read this week’s spelling rule.
Parker used his letter tiles to build word based on this week’s spelling rule.
Parker ended his spelling lesson by practicing writing his spelling words.
The next day, Parker used his spelling cards to complete his spelling sentences.
I placed the pumpkin syllable words in a dry-erase pocket (in GGB).
Parker sliced the pumpkin words at the correct syllable break.
Afterwards, Parker used his dot paints to mark each pumpkin word as short or long vowel.
I gave Parker his grammar lesson on linking verbs.
Afterwards, he completed the Scarecrow’s Linking Verb worksheet (in GGB).
This week, we learned about direct objects. I chose another forest theme, since we’re still studying The Raft by Jim Lamarch.
I prepared the forest cut-outs for Parker to match to the “in a nutshell” definitions.
Parker added the “Direct Objects” title stickers and matched each term correctly.
We also added a sample sentence that Parker matched with our owl (subject) and mouse (direct object).
We continued to read books from our thematic shelf. Parker also read Technology and Inventions, special mini book we got from Arby’s. It paired perfectly with his creative writing assignment.
Big brother was working on a separate science assignment, so Parker and I made the compass together.
