Lap Books are everywhere! If you like hands-on projects, interactive notebooks, or creative ways to engage your students in learning, then you may want to give lap books a try. That’s why today’s post is all about how to make a lap book (or perhaps you say lapbook).
When I first heard of lapbooks and saw some samples that other teachers had made, I was afraid it would be too time-consuming and project-heavy without a focus on real learning. I was wrong. (Don’t tell my husband I said that…he may write it down for future reference!) 😉
Lap books do not have to be huge, multi-paged contraptions, but can be very simple to make. Here is how to create a basic lap book, using ONE file folder. 😀 I’m a simple gal at heart!
- 1 file folder
- 1 sheet colored construction paper (or cardstock)
- glue stick
- colored pencils, crayons, extra paper
Now that you know how to make a lap book, what projects do you have in mind? I’d love to hear your ideas and how you use lap books in the classroom and in your homeschooling!
