The boys continued to memorize a segment from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

Jordan read The Story of Martin Luther King Jr., a wonderful introduction to a great man.
Grammar Grab Bag:
I created a Rainy Days themed Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s language arts activities.
You can download it here at our TPT Store.
I printed Parker’s spelling cards, letter tiles, spelling mat, and spelling worksheets.
First, Parker read this week’s spelling rule.
He thought of a word using this week’s rule and built it on his spelling mat.
Afterwards, he used his spelling cards to practice writing his spelling words.
On Tuesday, he used his spelling cards to complete his spelling sentences.
I set out his Rainy Days antonym match on Learning Lane.
Parker matched each rainbow word card with the correct rainy cloud word card.
Afterwards, he used his dot paints to complete his antonym matching worksheet.
Types of Sentences:
First we reviewed simple sentences and what they must have.
Afterwards, we worked through our grammar lesson using four simple sentences that I wrote down. We reviewed coordinating conjunctions then he joined the simple sentences using a coordinating conjunction of his choice.
I followed up the lesson with his coordinating conjunction worksheet (in GGB).
I set out the last snowflake to add to our “Snow Many Paragraphs” page.
Parker matched the Narrative paragraph term to its “In a Nutshell” definition.
We were really late completing this month’s calendar worksheets.
Parker helped me update our calendar and the kids completed their worksheets at the table.
I read the February poem from A Child’s Calendar.
The boys added their dates, holidays, and birthday celebrations.
This week we caught up with our TOPs experiments.
We started with last week’s experiment, building a circuit .
Afterwards, we did this week’s experiment, bypassing our circuit.
JUST FOR FUN:
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss:
We love Dr. Seuss and all his whimsical stories! We had a Seuss-themed breakfast and read several favorites.
We each chose a story to read at the table.
You can download your FREE copy here at our TPT Store.
The boys sketched faces while I read aloud.
Later in the day, They enjoyed a SEUSStastic sweet snack accompanied by some “pink ink”. Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss! We never tire reading your stories!
