Pumpkins ~ Lapbook

Our first Little Laplinks post! I visit Little Blots of Faith often and this has inspired me to get busy sharing some of our stuff. I used to teach Kindergarten and I LOVED swapping ideas with other teachers. I have been getting great ideas online for over a year now since we began homeschooling, now it’s my turn to give back! I have back dated all of our past Lapbooks made so far and plan to keep on adding, so check back! I hope this site can be helpful for someone looking for ideas for Lapbooks! My son is in Kindergarten, a little over half way through his K curriculum, although the activities I use can easily be altered for PreK-1st grade.

Here is our Pumpkin Lapbook…
