I really have to stop looking at other people's blogs and in the homeschooling forums. The more I look the more work I create for myself. lol I'm going to share with you a fun new project I've found called lapbooking. We have been working on a couple of them the last couple weeks. One of them is for the letter Aa, and the other goes along with the book We're Going on a Bear Hunt, and it enforces the letter Bb. Annabelle and I both love these. They are easy and fun to put together, and you can add something new each day. Plus it reinforces the phonic sounds that she is learning, and makes a great keepsake for her to go back and look at (which already happened this morning). It is also a great discussion tool and makes her think about things which I love. She has been more open to wondering and asking questions about things while we have been working on these. Things like I wonder who so and so's favorite color apple is...or what would you like to hunt for mommy? These questions of wondering never happened much before this, and I think it is opening up a whole new world to her. Exciting.
Another shot of stuff out of the pockets....we had fun with this.
The Story Sequencing Cards are fun items for her to be able to retell the story with. The Bible verse is under this flap, then there are the pattern bears that she had fun coloring. The lift and see flap is asking a question about what type of bear lives where, she had to glue the correct bear under each flap. Next is the over, under, through cave, we still have yet to do this but basically she will listen to the story and place the correct marker where is goes every time she hears it read. And the little flap with the girl and net was a fun little question she got to answer: What else would you like to hunt for? She said a poodle. lol :) So we did just that we hunted for one of her stuffed poodles.
Lastly, if you would like to try your hand at some lapbooking of your own here are the links that I love and have used for these ones (and for others that I'm planning)
And I thought that there was another one, but I can't seem to find it. Anyway, looking forward to introducing another new idea in the next couple of posts. Still working on it and getting it ready. Until then happy blogging!
