My oldest son is 12 and going into 7th grade this year. Up until now, we have used Calvert as our base curriculum, you can read here why we chose to change.  Below are the 7th grade homeschool curriculum choices we have made!  He had input on these choices and we are both excited about our final decisions.

Personal Word Wall Printables

Personal Word Wall Printables



In the past I have used a few different kinds of word walls.  Most recently I used a large portable word wall with Krash when he did You Can Read.  For Ladybug, I wanted simple and small and opted for a personal word wall in a file folder. I created some simple printables, trimmed the edges, glued them in and DONE!

As we go through You Can Read, we will add words to her word wall once she can read them independently. You can see in the photo below the words she knows in the letter A section.  I am writing in pencil in case we make any mistakes.

Personal Word Wall -9616

I added a handwriting chart to the back side of the word wall, for easy reference in case needed.  I had some extra space so it seemed like a logical addition.

Bible Verse Printables ~ Letter C

RLRS Letter C Genesis 1 1 Bible Verse Printables



Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter C are available to download for free!  C is for CREATED! This set is based on Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  This is one of the easier verse to explain to young children, and a shorter verse so easier to memorize!

We used the group version in my children’s church class of 4 & 5 year olds and really enjoyed it.

I am using the home bundle with Ladybug as a review, working on the verses again later on.  For example, in my class we are on the letter H right now, but at home we just worked on our review of letter C. She is in my children’s church class so she is getting the group teaching and then getting it again at home with me.

Here’s a peek at the work she did at home.

Here she was coloring the coloring page, she LOVES to color.  Again, she wanted to copy the poster graphic so you can see it sitting in front of her.

Color ~ Trace ~ Write the letter Bb…

She dislikes this page so I changed it up for her and we used glue and string for the first set of letters, she loved this!

RLRS Letter C -9599

Then, we used Wikki stix for the second set of letters, and she happily wrote the last set!

RLRS Letter C -9604

 

 

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying individual words and sounds she knows as well as the Bible verse as a whole. She uses the printable that has the light gray matching words on it.

RLRS Letter C -9571

I have been asked how we do this activity so I took a video to share what it looks like for her.  By the time we do this activity, she has the verse memorized which makes it easier.  If she didn’t I would read her each word and have her find the match.  You can easily adjust the difficulty level of this to meet the needs of your child. I shared a clip of this video on Instagram here!

 

We have a banner at church, which you can see a glimpse of here on Instagram. Here is  our home banner!

RLRS Letter C -9606

 

Here’s the work Ladybug did at home…

RLRS Letter C -9613

 

And, here’s Ladybug singing the verse for you!  The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear the tune for Letter C in this video!  In case you don’t catch it, the tune is Jingle Bells.

 

The free version is ONLY for home use.  If you will be using these printables in a church setting, private group, co-op, preschool or other group you will need to purchase the group bundle here.
