We started out the week with co-op learning about personification and onomatopoeia. As the week progressed we added lessons on the following topics: squares, different kinds of characters, steam (how it makes things go), how steam was used in the past, stewardship, vocabulary, construction vehicles, aerial/close-up views in art, and whatever else I may be forgetting.
The lessons are found in the FIAR Volume I manual. Many of the lapbook templates we used are available as free downloads at Homeschool Share (just look on the Mike Mulligan Resource Page– FIAR Resources Volume I).
Elijah is very active in creating his lapbooks. He dictates some answers to me (and I write them down); he helps with the writing, cutting, folding, gluing, etc.! He even spends some of his spare time making Jason and me little folded minit books that say, "I love you" 🙂
Awesome Lapbook! I just love looking at all the great lapbooks little ones are making! What a fun way to learn…And a lot cheaper than sending them back to school!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on The Cost of Back To School. It is good to know I am not the only one who was amazed!
I love it! It looks great!
