Easter Pictures and Lapbook
Happy Easter! These are pictures of the kids this morning. They were fighting, hence the lack of pictures together (ahhh sibling love)! They woke up to hidden Easter eggs and had a ball filling their bucket/basket! We had a wonderful day attending church in our new building. Our small church saw over 1000 people walk through the door today throughout the 4 services! After church Auntie Jess and Uncle Casey came over for lunch and after naps we went over to their place for dinner and another egg hunt.
For the last few weeks we have been working on an Easter lapbook! A lapbook is just a file folder(s) cut and folded. You can then attach pockets, mini books, pictures... that relate to whatever theme you are learning about. Here is the cover (colored and 1/2 cut out by Keanan):Here is the inside! We have 3 pockets to hold the games we made: a shape/color sorting game, an ABC's matching game, and a number/shape/word matching game. We also added an empty tomb coloring page (which Kyla helped color), and an Easter story accordion book.Here is the Easter story book opened up. Keanan can tell this story mostly by himself!And here is the back. A handprint butterfly with our memory verse, which Keanan can say mostly by himself! We are going to continue working on this verse as we start learning about Spring (and working on a new lapbook)!
