Sonlight Level E (Week 10)

BIBLE:

Memory Verse:

I created Bible verse packs for Proverbs 18:10 and Proverbs 16:32.

The boys traced both verses on Monday, practiced them all week, and recited them at the end of the week.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created a Fall on the Farm themed grammar grab bag for this week’s language arts activities.

Spelling:

On Monday, I set out Parker’s spelling cards, letter tiles, and spelling mat (in GGB).

First, Parker read the spelling rule.

He thought of a word with a digraph and built it on his spelling mat.

Afterwards, he used his spelling cards to practice writing his words.

On Tuesday, Parker used his spelling cards to complete his spelling sentences (in GGB).

Vowel Digraphs:

I cut out the sorting cards and set out the vowel digraph sorting barns (in GGB) on our learning lane.

Parker read each word card and sorted it in the appropriate digraph barn.

Verb Tenses:

First, I reviewed verb tenses and irregular verbs during our grammar lesson.

Then, Parker completed his past, Present, & Future Verb Tenses worksheets (in GGB).

Grammar Ace:

Since we were still studying The Pumpkin Runner, I decided to make our notebook page farm-themed.

I laid out all the pieces for our “Person” notebook entry.

Parker added the “person” title with stickers and matched the “in a nutshell” terms to their definitions.

It turned out really cute! Keeping a grammar notebook is a really great idea. We’ve used Jordan’s lapbook many times to review various grammar concepts.

Reading:

We continued to read many fun books about pumpkins and harvest time!

SCIENCE:

Pumpkins:

I set out trays with pumpkins, exploration worksheets, and colored pencils .

Everyone marked, measured, and recorded their data.

We filled up the kitchen sink with water and took turns placing our pumpkins in. We talked about “why” pumpkins, even the heaviest ones, float.

Everyone responded with a resounding, “they’re filled with air”. After so many sink/float experiments, they got it!

I cut the pumpkins open and the exploration continued.

I cut them into sizable chunks and baked them in the oven.

After letting them cool down, I pureed them, packaged and labeled them, and popped them in the freezer.

JUST FOR FUN:

Pumpkin Painting:

Haley set out acrylic paints, brushes, and glitter.

The kids painted the top of their pumpkins and we set them aside to dry.

They turned out so pretty!
