The Big Green Pocketbook

Before Five In a Row

The Big Green Pocketbook by, Candice Ransom

Bible Time:

“I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire.
He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”
Psalm 40:1-2

Afternoon School:

  • We completed one lesson each day from Teach Your Child to Read
  • We started working on Math U See lessons each day to see how we like the program


We had a lot of fun with our second week of BFIAR and reading this cute book. We didn’t end up doing a whole lot of projects because we had a busy week with the kiddos’ Aunti in town as well as Halloween but here is what we did accomplish:

Here’s a picture of our lapbook from Homeschol Share where we completed the crayon box, big green pocketbook filled with the pictures of each item the girl collects on her outing with mama and the ice cream cone scoops. For the scoops I had her color each one a different color and wrote in the lapbook the color names in Spanish.

We also got 2 pieces of felt from Wal-Mart for 23 cents each and some yarn and cut out the shape of the pocketbook and hole punched around the sides and she laced it together to make her very own big green pocketbook! This was from the Fold & Learn.
