I have my camera back so here are photos of the lapbooks my children finished last week. First up, Emma’s Meerkat lapbook (free on Homeschool Share, and we skipped some pieces, so there is more there). She is my bright rainbow coloring girl. I suspect her artistic side is much stronger than my other children’s so far, as she will sit and draw or color for hours and ask for more. You can see inside some of her favorite pieces here. If a piece involves writing I just have her narrate her answers and I write them for her. It makes lapbooking more enjoyable for a 4 year old. Joseph’s lapbook is one I got free as part of my lifetime super membership to Hands of a Child. It is called Exploring Nearby Space, and again, there were more pieces we could have done for the lapbook, but we choose a few and run with them instead. Joseph really enjoyed this lapbook and I need to make time to explore his love of space further very soon here. What I found neat to watch was his attempts to read the pieces he was gluing in, as several had cut and paste answers he could use. Makayla also did the Meerkat lapbook Emma made. She liked learning about meerkats. We do not have tv channels, so she the only meerkats she has ever seen are the ones in the Disney movie series The Lion King. She chose to use markers as well, and colored almost every available spot on the pieces.As you can see, Makayla writes her own narrations in. This minibook had flaps about several jobs in a meerkat colony. We had fun with all our lapbooking last week. As of right now the kids do not have lapbooking planned for this week, but we’re in the midst of lots of other fun things.
What was the last lapbook your child made? Do you have a favorite lapbook or lapbooking company?
