We started our desert studies wth a one week study with Roxaboxen (from Five in a Row Volume IV). Last week we took some time to learn more about desert animals (North American).
Here is the cover page Elijah made.
I threw everything he might possibly want in one of his workboxes and let him go. Simon and I made the letters for Elijah with a die-cutting machine.
Here are the pages we added to our notebook:
Desert Birds and a few other simple folds
Hi. I’m getting ready to do this lapbook with my first grader. Could you share how you did this in the notebook? What type of notebook did you use? I’ve heard some people say they prefer to do them in notebooks to take up less space. We’ve only made one lapbook thus far, so I’m new to all of it. Thanks!
We used a bare book spiral notebook. The lay-out is easier in a notebook because you don’t have to worry about fitting things to the side flaps of the traditional lapbook. Happy lapbooking!
Oh! I found the answer here! You use bare book spirals! Than you! I’m so excited! Our lapbooks haven’t held up over the years, and I like the idea of a notebook so much more! GREAT idea!
