Having been born in Brazil, one of the most exciting parts of homeschooling to me is being able to teach both in English and Portuguese to my children! I love that my kiddos will be able to be fully exposed to both languages, and hopefully learn how to read and write competently in both languages. So for now, during this early stage of literacy, I try to consistently use both languages in most of our projects.
Bellow is the fun Spring Lapbook we worked on during Spring season:
The "Recipe for Vegetable Soup" pocket, has some cut outs of veggies, and a soup recipe that she could follow and put in the "bowl" to make some soup! She loved playing this game, and learned lots of veggies vocab doing it! I would read the recipe, and she would add the vegetable that I was reading her.
There were so many fun things to add to this lapbook, that I ended up making a double lapbook, which is basically gluing one lapbook to the other! If you don't know how to do it, here is a link to how you can make one.
I wasn't planning on having this blog when we did this, so I didn't keep a record of the places I got each printout, but here are a few that I was able to find:
Here is a link how to make a lapbook: Making a Simple Lapbook
Here is a link how to make a double lapbook: Making a Double Lapbook
For the carrots and seeds printouts: Carrot Seed Lapbook
For the vegetable printouts: Growing Vegetables Soup Unit
For the butterfly cycle mini book: Butterfly Cycle
Label the parts of the plant: Parts of the plant
This was a super fun lapbook that my daughter really enjoyed playing with and learning all about God's creation! We also did lots of fun activities to go along with the things we learned here, that I hope to post in the future. Lapbooks are a fun way for our kiddos to learn about different things, and for pre-K students, it's a great way to play and expand vocabulary!
Hope you enjoy :)
