The Boxcar Children (Ch 4):

BIBLE:

We’re loving the FIAR Bible and Character supplement. I assign those lessons first then create my own Bible lessons to fill in the rest of the days we row each chapter.

Memory Verse:

Jordan memorized two verses since he rowed this chapter for two weeks.

The first week, Jordan memorized Psalm 61:4.

The second week, he memorized Psalm 139:5-6.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

Geography – Evergreen Tree Regions:

Jordan and I read Crinkleroot’s Guide to Knowing the Trees.

Jordan marked the top evergreen tree producing states on his the U.S. map I printed for him.

Career – Veterinarian:

Jordan read The Day of a Country Veterinarian to get a better idea of what the life of a country vet looks like.

This week, I assigned James Herriot’s Treasury for Children. I asked him to read a different story each day.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Vocabulary:

I created vocabulary worksheets for Jordan to complete.

You can download the FREEbie here at our TPT Store.

SCIENCE:

First Aid:

Jordan and I reviewed important first aid tips in Improve Your Survival Skills.

Dog Breeds:

I asked Jordan to look through our Little Book of Dogs and Puppies to find a breed he could see as his future dog.

He used his future dog as the character for his creative writing assignment this week.

FINE ARTS:

Cooking:

After tossing seasonal berries with sour cream and brown sugar, Jordan whipped up a batch of drop biscuits to pair them with.

Watercolors:

Jordan sorted the berries and set it aside to use for our natural watercolor project.

I cooked each of the berries separately, strained them, and set them in a glass dish with a paintbrush.

I set them on a tray with a piece of paper for Bub to create berry swatches.

Jordan painted the swatches and used the rest to paint a picture.

Maps & Models:

Jordan started creating his boxcar map on Minecraft. First, he cleared a forest area.

Next, he built tracks and figured out the position of the boxcar near a water source.
