Sonlight Level E (Week 11)

BIBLE:

Memory Verse:

I created a Proverbs 26:18-19 tracer worksheet for this week’s Bible verse.

You can download your FREE copy here at our TPT Store.

The boys traced their verse, practiced it all week, and recited it at the end of the week.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar:

I created a Fall is in the Air Grammar Grab Bag for this week’s language arts activities.

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.

Spelling:

I set out his spelling cards, letter tiles, and spelling mat (in GGB).

First, Parker read this week’s spelling rule.

Next, he thought of a word that used this week’s spelling rule and built it on his mat.

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

Root Words:

I presented Parker with his Harvest Festival word cards and scissors. I instructed him to cut them apart, separating the root word from the suffix (ending).

This week’s spelling list were root words with an -ed suffix. It was easy to identify both the root word and suffix. As a result, he snipped his way through the stack of cards with ease.

Grammar Ace:

Since we just celebrated our annual Harvest festival at church, I made a circus themed lapbook page.

I prepped everything ahead of time. First, Parker added the stickers to create the “verb Tense” title.

Next, he matched the “in a nutshell” terms to the correct definition.

It was colorful and was a fitting tribute to our Harvest Festival week.

Reading:

We continued to read books about pumpkins and harvest time!

SCIENCE:

Tops:

We were slightly behind on our Tops experiments, so this week we caught up.

Parker’s favorite was the solenoid we made to create the electromagnet. This made our science time TRULY exciting!

JUST FOR FUN:

Candy Sink/Float Experiment:

Every year, we clean out our candy jars to make room for the massive amount of candy they get from our church harvest festival.

They chose samples of their old candy to use in this experiment.

The kids wrote predictions for each candy sample, tested each item, and wrote the results.

Chocolate Apples:

Since all the kids have braces, caramel apples were out of the question. We decided to make chocolate apples instead.

Everyone enjoyed dipping and decorating their apples. Who doesn’t enjoy a sweet treat?
