Hello dear ones! I hope you’re week has started well :). We celebrated Pentecost this week by doing a study on the Holy Spirit and mainly the fruit of the Spirit. Also I’ve got a bug study link at the end of this post.
Fruit of the Spirit Lapbook
Resources here: http://www.lapbooklessons.com/FruitoftheSpiritLapbook.html
Inside I had Michael trace Galatians 5:22-23 in cursive.
“22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”
Each flap has a fruit of the spirit on it. On the inside of the flaps, Michael wrote out a verse dealing with each fruit and I wrote the definition.
Game cards were put in the middle pocket for the Fruit of the Spirit game. The board is on the back. The cards each have a scenario on them in which a certain fruit should be used.
We watched “The Fruit of the Spirit” song on Psalty’s Praise Party Two video. Yep, it’s on VHS. We still have one of those.
We also did a study on Honesty found here:
We then talked about the gifts of the Spirit since at Pentecost we celebrate when Jesus sent the Holy Spirit.
This dove craft went nicely. http://catholicicing.com/holy-spirit-craft-make-a-dove-from-a-paper-plate/
Later, we talked about the parable of the ten virgins and how their lamps were not ready with oil when the Bridegroom came. So they missed out on the wedding. This story represents people that are not ready when Jesus comes back. We talked about how we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit by having a relationship with Jesus.
Then we did this lamp craft: http://www.jennysmith.net/lds-clipart/paper-plate-lamp
May’s Lego Club was all about Optical Illusions. The teacher gave a short lesson on optical illusions. Then they got to building a couple. We were not prepared as you can tell from the Legos dumped everywhere. We managed to pull enough of what we needed. By the way, if you are new to this blog; Currclick.com has great online classes and clubs for homeschoolers.
Pipe Cleaner experiment~ cut up several pipe cleaners and put them in a glass jar. Use a magnet to manipulate them.
Michael should finish “The Hobbit” this week. We didn’t do any Hobbit crafts last week but maybe we will this time. We made a “pond” for our tadpoles in the back yard and set them free so to speak. We also let our earthworm go and planted his dirt near the “pond”. I never saw him/her but the soil looked like he/she had been working in it.
Our homeschool group made airplanes last week and we learned what makes them fly. It was good fellowship and fun.
Last May, we did a bug study unit by Danielle’s Place and also a couple that I made myself (spider & butterfly). We had lots of fun as you can see below. Check out the first bug study. Each post has links at the bottom to the next post. I just did that with a lot of my crafty posts.
