Yesterday we started working on this lapbook from A Journey Through Learning. I'm adjusting it a little so we can use it from K to 8th. Not hard to do at all! The kids loved the first day and we left with them asking for more!
Here is the Table of Contents to show you what we will be learning about. If you want to see a few more sample pages go to their website and feel free to browse.
Bugs finishes up his phonics before we start the lapbook.
First we found Ireland on a map. It took them awhile since it is so small.
We talked about Ireland's geography, it's capital, provinces & counties. Then it was to the table to record the information we had learned. They wrote down their info., cut & glued.
More to come as we work along!
Each category had different animals. His teacher told me they had classified them together & Bugs knew every one & how to classify them!
The inside of the flap, "Mama's Pocketbook is..."
The inside of the flap, "Bible Verse".
He practiced tracing the letter 'L'.
And his colors.........
Counting with different colored scoops of ice cream.
His preschool class is geared for kids his own age as well as younger children. Some of the skills here are things he has already mastered but that is okay. Review is never a bad thing and Bugs loved cutting, gluing & coloring. Cutting is definitely something he needs practice with. I'm so grateful to his teachers. The love they have for our preschoolers shines through & Bugs simply adores them.
