OK- the lapbook stuff is a big win with my daughter. For those who don’t know the term- a lapbook is simply a file folder filled with minibooks or inserts on a given topic. This format is really nice in that each subsection of a topic can be shown in a few simple statements and it is also a nice way to let out your inner artist. I think she likes that there are many moving parts and that she gets to draw, color, and sticker all over the folder.
This lapbook contains a wheel with different types of birds, a bird story, a description of the class Aves, a picture she colored, and lots of bird stickers we printed out on blank sheet labels.
