Anyways, Unit 4 of school focused on the story of Noah's Ark. I added a rainbow theme to bring home the concept of God's promise.
I found this verse activity from 1+1+1=1 and since that was our memory verse, it was perfect. She glued it together to create an accordion memory verse.
abcjesuslovesme.com. We made an obedience ark. I wrote down different ways she can show God love (she gave me half of the answers) and we built an ark with our popsicle sticks.
Lapbooklessons.com had this cute mini book that she colored one day. This particular school day took place on the floor because I had a terrible headache, but she really wanted to do school. No matter how bad I feel, I can't resist her when she asks to do school!
1+1+1=1's rainbow pack.
Confessions of a Homeschooler.
roll a rainbow! She always has fun rolling the die and then getting to use the markers is also fun! ;) I took the top right picture because she explained to me that it was okay that she colored outside of the lines with the blue, because it made indigo. So creative...
She found all of the letter R's in this activity from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
Our sight words for this unit were did and two. Depending on the day, coloring can be a bit of a challenge for her (or rather me). She sometimes loves it and moves right through it and other times, it's like pulling teeth to get her to color 6 letters! ;) But either way, I'm going to continue to use these color by numbers from 1+1+1=1.
3dinosaurs, not because they are necessarily difficult, but because she look too far ahead and skips over part of the path to get to the word she saw toward the end. When she does these sheets, I have to be sure to slow her down and help her focus on only the next word on the path and this seem to help tremendously.
One of the new things we did this week was use the USA powerpoint from 1+1+1=1. Since we aren't doing the powerpoints like we did last year, I think she has actually missed looking on the computer for school stuff. She loved seeing the different states and asked every time what the state bird and flower are. I can't help but get giddy that she LOVES this kind of stuff like me! yay! ;)
I also didn't feel like making copies, so she is going to have her own activity book on money. (I'll just buy another one for Meredith in a couple of years if this one goes well.) The book has about 6 activities each for pennies, nickles, dimes and quarters. We started with the first few pages which taught her about pennies.
Anyways, another "week" documented. (She's pictured in 5 different outfits, but we never do school 5 days in a row!) We are still trying to finish up our current unit, so most likely I'll blog about it next week. Until then, happy learning!
