We are beginning our summer lapbooking project, which P is enjoying since he chose the theme! This summer he chose the ocean, with a specific focus on dolphins, whales, and sharks. We are going to Sea World in September which will be a wonderful finale!
Here he is reading the book, Dolphin’s Big Leap, which we got for about a dollar at a consignment sale…it’s a great book! And he wrote his own “easy reader” about a dolphin. He began writing books awhile back, and is still doing this periodically. He writes longer stories (usually having one illustration and lots of writing), or easy readers (several illustrations with a simple sentence on each). He came up with this on his own, I let the writing be guided by him. Today he felt like making an easy reader!
I am still not entirely sure how I will put the lapbook(s) together. I am trying to be very laid back this summer and not push school type things much. I really want it to be fun and a break for all of us. So far it is going well! I think with this break, we will all be ready to get back to school when it is time (I haven’t exactly decided when that is!).
I got our webpage started for this lapbook theme, although there isn’t much up there yet besides our books!
