Lapbook Factory

 Ancient Egypt history lesson.
The kids wrote hieroglyph and cuneiform words in plasticine.

 Saturday morning Spanish Class in action.

My friend Amber told me about Lapbooks. My kids really like them. We work on them at the end of our school day if we have time left over.
 Charlie chose to do his first Lapbook on Peregrine Falcons.

On the inside he traced a map of where Peregrines live in the world. He filled an envelope with cards explaining what Peregrines look like, he wrote about Peregrine eggs and chicks, what they eat, etc. My favorite part is his drawing on the back of his folder. He drew the inside of Sam Gribley's Hemlock tree  and included his pet Falcon "Frightful"on the bed post. 

 Jacob wanted to study whales. He was very diligent about his work and was even the first one to finish his Lapbook. He poured over his books and re-read them over and over.

 Jane chose to study Horses and Ponies.

Jane worked hard on this collage on the back.

Why is Charlie's head removeable? And why is Jane's black horse making me so happy all the day?
