The boys traced their verses and practiced them every day. They recited them at the end of the week.
Our Starting Strong studies resumed. The boys continued to work through the next chapter.
Parker and I read Sadako’s Cranes on our Epic app. It’s such a sad story, because you see how war affects the innocent ones.
Grammar Grab Bag:
I created a Lucky Leprechauns themed Grammar Grab Bag (GGB).

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, Parker used his spelling cards to complete his spelling sentences.
Sorting by Sound:
I cut apart our shamrock word cards and presented them with the sorting mat (in GGB).
He read through the stack, sorting by the short “oo”and long “oo” sound.
Afterwards, he used his dot paints to color code the short and long “oo” words.
Parker and I reviewed commas and the many ways we use them (e.g. in a series, between city and state names, etc.).
After his lesson, Parker completed the “St. Patrick’s Day Special Commas” worksheet.
The page layout was “spring weather” themed to match our FIAR book, Albert.
I set out the elements for our “Analogy” page layout.
First, Parker added the title with our alphabet stickers.
Next, he glued the pieces of the umbrella, including the “in a nutshell” definition.
Then, he matched the umbrella and raindrops with the correct “in a nutshell” definitions.
It turned out really cute when we finished it.
We read several books about spring, leprechauns (yep, holiday books linger around our house), and baseball!
We continued to work through our math lessons on measurement.
As we worked through our lessons, we updated our math notebook.
We caught up on our TOPs experiments this week.
Parker worked on mapping, drawing, and building circuits.
