Kaden's First Lapbook

You know I had planned on formally starting Kaden with Before Five In A Row in the fall of this year. Kaden always participates in school with us. He usually colors or does stickers while I am reading. What has really surprised me was when Kaden sat down with the book from a unit we were doing about a month ago and pretty much narrated the story back to Larry. I was shocked that he had remembered most of the story and also many details!

When we were doing our President study last month he cried because he didn't have his own lapbook. I promised him I would let him help make one when we started our next unit. Let me tell you Kaden does not forget. So here is Kaden's very first lapbook! I just cut down a regular size file folder since we only put a few tings in this book. I guess we'll be starting a little soooner than I had planned!

This is such a great idea! I'm having visions of making one to keep my little one quiet during church.

I loved this idea.
I think I will make these mini lap books (your brillant idea) for my daughter for compact learning purposes to take with us to dr. offices and what not or on errands and they are small enough to fit in her tote bag and not mom's.

Thanks brillant!!
Hugs,
Sheila

How cute! I love the idea of cutting the folder down. It makes it easier to handle...

In Sunday school class I took a large poster board and cut it into 4ths.... it made a nice small one too... but not small enough. It was just a little project so it looked a little sparse... We did ours on a few parables Jesus told.

Great tip! I’m exited to try that on our next lap book...
