We Did It!

I'm excited to tell you that on Thursday we completed the first folder of our lapbook! The kids have been working hard. We all have been learning a lot. The kids are proud to answer Daddy's questions & share their new knowledge.

First we learned about shamrocks & their importance to Ireland.

We discussed The Great Potato Famine and how devastating it was to so many. It lasted for many years.

Princess was such a good girl. When she got bored we had her join us at the table & gave her a little snack.

The kids worked in 2 teams. Sweet Pea & Elvis were one team. It was not only time for them to review what we had discussed as a group but a time for them to practice cooperation & teamwork.

Stapling a mini book together.

Boo Bear & Bugsy were a team. Boo is very good with Bugs. So patient. He in turn adores her.
Here they are gluing pieces on their folder.

All their hard work has paid off & they have an amazing first folder to show off! As you can see Bugs was in a goofy mood. =) This folder displays information on Ireland's geography, the national instrument - the harp, the flag, the tradition of the shamrock, The Great Potato Famine, The Celtics & St. Patrick.
Sweet Pea & Elvis proudly display their finished work.
What a wealth of information we have learned & we are only 1/3 of the way through!
