Sonlight Level E (Week 31)

BIBLE:

Memory Verse:

I decided to have the boys memorize a poem as we neared the end of the school year. Since Hebrews 12 was on the schedule, I created a Bible verse printable for Hebrews 12.

Poetry:

I decided to have the boys memorize a baseball poem, since we’re learning about this sport.

Casey at the Bat:

Casey at the Bat is one of my husband’s favorites. He memorized it and win first prize at his school’s speech meet. Jordan wanted to memorize this poem.

I created a Casey at the Bat poem book for Jordan.

Casey’s Revenge:

The boys wanted to memorize different poems, so I chose Casey’s Revenge, a happily-ever-after ending for Parker to memorize.

I created a Casey’s Revenge Poetry Book for Jordan.

The boys began tracing and memorizing their baseball poems.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created a Hoppy Easter Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s language arts activities.

Spelling:

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 Easter treat word cards and presented them with the sorting mat (in GGB).

I read through the stack of “mn” and “mb” words, and he sorted them accordingly.

Afterwards, he used his dot paints to color code the Easter Treats worksheet.

Alphabetical Order:

Parker practiced writing his spelling words in alphabetical order.

Capitalization:

First, Parker and I reviewed how to properly capitalize book titles during his grammar lesson.

I brought out several books from our shelf. We reviewed each book title together, emphasizing how each capitalization rule was used.

Afterwards, Parked completed his “Mr. Bunny’s Capitalization Catastrophe” worksheet.

Grammar Ace:

The page layout was inspired by Jordan’s Grammar Ace notebook layout from Make Way for Ducklings. Instead of a duckling, I made a cardinal to match Albert, the book we’re currently studying.

I set out the elements for our “Contractions” page layout.

First, Parker added the title with our alphabet stickers.

Then he wrote the two words that make each contraction and matched the colored car.

Next, he added the contraction cardinal and wrote the two words that create the contraction.

Lastly, Parker added the signal light terms to their matching “in a nutshell” definitions.

Our contraction page transformed into a bustling city street scene!

Reading:

We continued to read more spring-themed books this week.

MATH:

Lapbook:

I planned to update Parker’s math lapbook, as we covered new concepts in his chapter on area and perimeter.

After realizing I never finished his “shapes” page layout, he and I completed that page first.

Afterwards, we created an “Area & Perimeter” page with all the new concepts he was learning.
