Bible: This week’s memory verse is Leviticus 22:31 “You are to keep My commands and do them. I am the Lord.” The Bible stories are Saul Meets His Master (Acts 8:1-4; 9:1-25) and God Gives Saul a Friend (Acts 9:26-30; 11:22-30; 12:24-25; 13:1-3; Gal. 1:13-20).
Phonics/Spelling: Practice Charts 6 – 13; practice words with special sounds in Handbook for Reading; dictate words to your child and have him/her sound them out and write them or write the special sounds in them; practice Spelling words every day (have child write words as you dictate them or spell them to you orally). We made flashcards for each chart with special sounds on one side and clue words on the other. If you no longer have those, they are easy to make and great tools for practice. Also, you can copy words from the Handbook and have your child circle the special sounds and mark the vowels. SEND THEM IN AND I WILL CHECK THEM! I will also give kids a coupon for each page of extra work they do at home for practice. 10 coupons = prizebox
