Bible Verse Printables Letter U

Raising Lil Rock Stars Letter U Printables

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter U are available to download for free! U is for UP! This set is based on Matthew 17:8, “When they looked up they saw no one but Jesus.

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

Coloring ~  I love coloring time because it gives such a great opportunity for discussion. 

RLRS Letter U -8559

 

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying 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 U -8523

 

NOTE ~ there was a typo in my original file and I missed it prior to teaching this to her {it has been updated and fixed in all bundle files and free files now}!  A kind reader found it and shared, but she had already sung the tune with the mistake!  So, ignore when she says “Matthew 17:18” it’s supposed to be verse 8. Winking smile

The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear her singing along in the video. The tune is “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.”

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.

Owl Unit Study and Lapbook

Owl Unit Study and Lapbook

After our bat lapbook she told me she didn’t like lapbooks.  As you will see in this post, she changed her mind.  She requested to make a lapbook and loved the process! I was all ready to make something new, or just study and not make a lapbook but thankfully she warmed up to the idea!

 

We got our printables from:

Here is a peek at her completed lapbook, for those of you new – she is in 1st grade.  She put together the front and back all on her own, taping her creations onto the folder.

Owl Lapbook -8823  Owl Lapbook -8826

We worked on lining up the inside together to be sure it all fit.

Owl Lapbook -8828

Owl Lapbook -8834

 

She has a few stuffed owls, so of course they came to visit.  We hit the library for owl books, these 3 were our favorites.

Owls -8422

 

I printed the owl coloring pages at half size and put them together like this…

Owl Coloring -8484  Owl Coloring -8490

She loved these!

Owls -8499

Some of the owls got turned into bigger creations!

Owls -8504

 

We worked on the lapbook components one at a time, reading one of our books to find the information.

Painting owls was a favorite!

Her First Week of 1st Grade Homeschool

1st graders are old.  I used to teach Kindergarten and I would always glance across the hall and think the 1st grades seemed so old to me.  I cannot believe we are here with our baby.  Our first week of 1st grade with our daughter is complete. She is such a big girl now, and I am loving this stage of her life while also missing the younger stages too. 

First Week of 1st Grade Homeschool

{disclaimer ~ affiliate links are used in this post}

As a reminder, here is our post sharing our 1st Grade Curriculum Choices.  You can see direct links and more info on what I chose for her and why there.

1st Grade Homeschool Curriculum Choices

 

I got asked for a photo of her lesson plan from the first week, so I took one at the end of the week. If you click on it, you can see it larger. We ended up having friends over at the last minute on Friday, so we moved that day to the following week.  Love the flexibility of homeschooling! I use Lessontrek to plan our week.  I then add info to the printed plan as we go through the week.  The plan then gets filed in her lesson plan notebook.

1st Grade -8814

 

Below is a photo of her daily plan.  I will be sharing more about this in a separate post soon.  This gives her a visual “to-do” list for the day so she can see what is left to be finished. It worked really well for her.

Daily Grid -8735

 

 

She was MOST excited to begin Life of Fred math with her Daddy.  She overheard the books last year when he did them with Krash.  She couldn’t wait for it to be her turn.

1st Grade -8857

 

We are also using Spielgaben for math. I am not following any plan, just choosing lessons and worksheets from the abundant Spielgaben manuals.  I decided to begin working with 3D shapes, which she loved! 

Spielgaben -8726

 

We are doing 3 days of All About Reading and 2 days of All About Spelling.  We might not complete a full lesson in one day, and that’s fine.  We are moving at her pace.  Sometimes fast, sometimes slow.  She enjoys both of these programs.

1st Grade -8707

 

We did lots of review with sounds, the free app was a great tool as we did this!

1st Grade -8709

 

Write Shop Primary A has been fun, since it is mostly Guided Writing at this stage!  She liked illustrating our stories!

1st Grade -8736

 

She has a big girl grammar workbook which she’s not too thrilled about, but can totally handle.  This is Growing with Grammar Level 1.

1st Grade -8742

 

We are using Logic of English Cursive this year since it worked so well for Krash.  She loved the salt tray coming back and remembered it from her preschool days! She isn’t a huge fan of handwriting, so we are taking it slowly and trying to make it fun.

1st Grade -8744

 

She put together her Owl Lapbook and reviewed what she learned by sharing it with her Daddy.  I will share a full post about this soon!

1st Grade -8879

Owls -8748

 

She loved We Choose Virtues! I chose to start with the word KIND, because sadly this is something she struggles with.  We are using the coloring pages, the songs {on my iPad} and the parenting cards.

1st Grade -8787

 

She loves her science book!  We completed the K level over the summer and started the 1st grade level!  The first unit was all about sound which she really enjoyed.  She loved her experiment with hard and soft sounds!

1st Grade -8791  1st Grade -8797

 

That was all I had pictures of, we did everything marked off on the lesson plan shown at the beginning of the post. Her first week was before our official first week of school so I could get her acclimated to her new routine. Our first official week as an entire group was the following week, you can see real-time action in our homeschool here on our Instagram! We have a new hashtag #1stGradeWithLadybug, so you can see all of her posts easily!

I am very pleased with my choices for her, and with her attitude about learning!  It is such a joy to teach her, even better so far than I expected.  The boys weren’t {aren’t} always enthusiastic learners and she usually is. I am really looking forward to a fun 1st grade year with her, soaking in every moment!

One of the amazing deals featured at Educents is Life of Fred Math. Up until about 2 years ago I had never even looked at Life of Fred, and had no clue what all the fuss was about.  I bought 4 of the elementary math books to use with Krash last year as a supplemental review and we fell in love! 

We are now using the same books with Ladybug this year, as more of a main math program for 1st grade. Educents kindly sent us the remaining books in the series for this review, since we only owned the first 4 books of the series. The photo below shows all 10 of the elementary math books.

Dr. Schmidt recommends that all students up to 4th grade start with Apples and work their way through the entire elementary series.  Krash is in 4th grade this year and finishing up the series this year {we hope}.  Ladybug is in 1st grade and just started!

Life of Fred

 

These books looked strange to me at first. Take a peek. Does this look like a math book to you?

Life of Fred

 

Not really, huh?  But it is math. presented in a engaging, purposeful and silly way.  Our entire family now really enjoys Life of Fred math! The strangeness is what has really drawn us in.  The characters are quirky, the stories are funny, and the math is practical.

Want a deeper peek?  Scroll down to the product description section on this page and there’s a link to see inside of each book!  There’s also a great overview video!

We just started with Ladybug and I captured a bit of learning with her Dad during her first week. They sit together like this most days and will use a dry erase board to complete the problems at the end of each chapter.

Life of Fred

 

Here’s a video I made showing them in action.  It’s about 6 minutes long, giving you a peek into chapters 1 & 2 from Apples.

 

For more added fun, invite your dog!
