In the folder for week 1 is the following
# A copy of the weekly spelling list
#Weekly spelling cards
#Sonlight Activity Cards
#An activity for activity #7 (see below)
#copywork sheet – one is laminated which I write on for her to copy and a blank one for her to write on.
Here are my downloads and notes for week 1 – you NEED the Sonlight Instructors Guide to use these downloads. I am not affiliated with Sonlight in anyway I just love their books and use their program as my base to homeschool my 5 kids.
You do not need to add extra to the Sonlight Program but we do because it works better this way for our family. Please note that I am using HWOT (Handwriting With Out Tears) paper for all my downloads.

Phonics Activities -
#1 – we used a ‘th’ page made to go with the THRASS chart, then discovered that THRASS had produced a PHONICS WORD BANK book. So I won’t be making any more THRASS worksheets (unless I really, really need to ).
#2 we used the magnetic letters I made. You can download them here from Homeschool Launch
#4 we are using the THRASS Phonics Word bank book instead of making a chart.
#7 If your child does not like writing use the sheet I made and either get them to cut out the letters and paste on to the chart. (WORKBOX HINT: Think about what you want to accomplish with this activity and if cutting is not part of it do the cutting yourself before hand ) or laminate the chart and use a cookie tray and magnetic letters to “write” the answers. Download at Homeschool Launch here.
