I’ve heard of lapbooks for homeschooling before and they looked interesting. I hesitated before to try to make one because they just seemed like tons of work and I worried that they might be too advanced for my 4 & 6 year olds. I decided this week to give it a try and we loved it!
This week we were studying Horses. The lapbook I found online was perfect PLUS it was FREE! I found it on Homeschooling in Heels(I’m not sure if Jessica still blogs there but the links to her homeschool freebies are still available).The kids help to cut out some of the pieces and glue things together. I did most of the writing but in the future I will use this as a great opportunity for Claire to practice her handwriting. We did the whole lapbook in one day but in the future we would spread this out over a few days and spend more time learning about each topic. I would say that this lapbook was a success! Here’s how it turned out:
You know our next chapter is horses………
