Lapbooking v1-Officer Buckle & Gloria

We were introduced to lapbooking through our homeschool group.  I was so excited about it that we did one right away.  I need to get more of these specific books listed on the website so we can do more!  The kids loved putting it together and they love looking at it again and again along with reading the book.

Check out this lapbook website to make your own!

I used 2 file folders.  The first one I refolded so the flap folded in the middle.  I printed everything out the night before and pre-cut some of the things so it wouldn't take as long when it came time to put it together.

The first open flap.

I had Monkey practice writing the phone number, then I had him cut the numbers out and put them in order.

One more flap to open up.
If you can see on the bottom left of the middle section, I added biblical laws...The 10 Commandments.  This is something I created on my own.

Here's the link to download this for yourself.
Ten Commandments Flip File

The top flap is the address.  Monkey had lines to practice writing our address.

It also had the story of Humpty Dumpty, which I learned my children have never heard before and they thought it was hilarious.  Then Monkey practiced copying the rhyme.  He did pretty good.  I think he skipped a line. But still did a good job.

I printed everything out for us to lapbook the book, "If you give a mouse a cookie" But I then realized we have if you take a mouse to school, not if you give a mouse a cookie.  So I'll have to remember to get that book from the library so we can do that one soon.  Stay tuned.  I'll share this all with you once we've completed them.
