In the Works ~ Thansgiving Lapbook

We are going to need about 3 folders to fit all of our Thanksgiving stuff in by the time we are done! Today P worked on his “Draw, Write, Now” lesson, beginning the copywork for the Mayflower. He drew the picture yesterday. This is the first time I have actually had him complete the copywork and he did really well. I LOVE these books!

We are really enjoying our Thanksgiving unit! P made this Thankful Turkey today and LOVED it! I love it when he loves things we do!

In the Works ~ Volcano Lapbook

We finally began our volcano unit today and my son was beyond thrilled, as you can see from his face in these photos! The first things we did was make a mini model volcano which was a part of a unit I purchased from here, but the direct link is no longer available.We also began our first read-aloud chapter book!

In the Works ~ Volcano Lapbook

We are starting P’s volcano lapbook next week, he is THRILLED, I am OK with it. This is entirely his idea…he’s been asking to learn about volcanoes for months now! Here are the resources I have printed out for his lapbook…
Volcano Poetry Form
Volcano Fact Cards
Volcano Shape Book
Label the Volcano (Enchanted Learning)
Stages of a Volcano (Hands of a Child Sample)
Color By Number
and I broke down and purchased this, from A to Z Teacher Stuff. I really needed it and am glad I bought it. My son is really into this whole volcano thing and I am really trying to be! I need to learn and almost everything I found was not for his age (5 1/2). This download has many activities that are appropriate for him and it is also teaching me what I need to know to teach him! Photos will be posted as we begin!!!

In the Works ~ Fruits of the Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace)

We are REALLY enjoying our Fruits of the Spirit lessons, I am so thankful for what I found on the internet! Here is a photo of the items we are using each day…On the top row, cards from our memory game, the middle are Bible verse cards and the bottom are song book pages. All will eventually be in his lapbook! (I got them all off of Danielle’s Place)
