Sonlight Level E (Week 32)

We had a busy week, but we weren’t able to catch up on everything since we were still recovering from COVID. Hopefully we’ll catch up next week.

BIBLE:

Easter Lesson:

Jordan’s Sunday school teacher sent him a cross to decorate during his Easter class, but he was sick and unable to attend class.

I thought it would be fun to create a cross art project using The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross.

Parker colored while I finished reading aloud Miracles on Maple Hill. It was a beautiful story and probably my favorite book this year.

Memory Verse:

Since Hebrews 12 was on the schedule, I created a Bible verse printable for Hebrews 12.

Poetry:

Since I decided to have the boys memorize a baseball poem, we put our Bible memorization on hold.

Casey at the Bat:

Jordan continued to memorize Casey at the Bat.

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

Casey’s Revenge:

Parker continued to memorize Casey’s Revenge.

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

The boys continued tracing and memorizing their baseball poems.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created a honey bear themed 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 (in GGB).

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.

Antonyms & Synonyms:

I cut apart our Be My Honey word cards and presented them with the sorting mat (in GGB).

I read through the stack of words cards, sorting them accordingly.

Afterwards, he used his dot paints to match the Honey Bee antonyms on his worksheet.

Plurals & Suffixes:

Parker colored the suffix garden pages before we started our lesson. He also cut out the tulip word cards.

We did this activity together since it was a working grammar lesson. Parker read each root word card and placed it in the appropriate suffix garden. When we finished, we reviewed all the plural rules from this lesson.

Grammar Ace:

The page layout was inspired by our new FIAR book unit, Higgins Bend Song and Dance.

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

First, Parker added the title with our alphabet stickers.

Next, he added the page elements, fishing pole terms and river water.

Next, he matched the catfish definitions with the correct “in a nutshell” fishing pole terms. He also added some birds in the sky! We also wrote some examples on our river water.

The fish were really biting on this week’s page layout!

Reading:

I updated our reading shelf with books that tie into spring and our new Higgins Bend Song and Dance unit.

We read about rivers, communities, and being a good neighbor.
