Yesterday was our creative day and we made an All About Me lapbook. If you're not familiar with lapbooking, it's a great way to focus on a subject! You take a file folder, and add in worksheets, games, and other activities as you go. When you're done, you've got a great learning tool for quiet time, or any time. This particular lapbook was so fun to make! I got to interview Ava, we learned about the town we live in, she got to do some searching on the internet, we talked about our family, and also about the things that make Ava unique. If you've never interviewed your child, I highly recommend it!
I was able to find some great templates online for our lapbook and we can't wait to do another one soon! Picture overload:
As you can see, the inside is full of mini books and flaps:
We did some online research about the town of Tigard and printed off a Google map for the book on the bottom:
The right side has a triangle book about how Ava likes to spend her time, an interview, and a graduated book all about her body:
The interview was so fun! I wrote down what she said word for word and some of the answers are hilarious!
The triangle fold:
The center flap has a birthday cake that Ava decorated, a flap for her signature, tickets that list her favorite places to go, and a portrait of her family (that she drew):
Under it is a book of her favorite books, a pocket with cards that list her favorite things, and her family and friends' phone numbers. There's also a sample of her weekly schedule:
