I enjoy looking at other people's blogs and seeing the massive amount of creativity and talent out there. I came across the idea of lapbooks last week. I think it's absolutely brilliant! So, the quest began. My husband's parents are from Ireland. His mom was one of six children, all girls. The only one to move to America. His parents came here in the 60's. I thought since St. Patrick's Day is the next holiday what a fun first book to make to share Meara's heritage with her!
Number matching on both inside flaps 1-10 with a pocket at the bottom of each to hold the numbers.
Flip ups for bagpipes, Cliffs of Moher, leprechaun, and unicorn
Six different Irish blessings
I made upper and lower case letters in Word. I taped a piece of file folder to the top to flip up for letter matching. There is a pocket at the right hand bottom corner that holds the lower case cards.
You can find some of the documents I created for this lapbook here.
