Our Lapbook on Stellaluna

We had a great time reading and doing a mini-unit study on Stellaluna.  For math the little ones learned about pairs, counted by two's, and practiced counting past 50.  They also tested their senses by smelling fruit with their eyes closed to see if they could figure out what it was.  Also, for science they learned about carnivores, omnivores, and herbivores as well as the anatomy of bats.  They learned more about continents as they traced fruit bats around the world.  The kids really liked working on their second lapbook for copy work.  I love the way lapbooks reinforce what the kids have learned and give them a permanent record in a nice book that they can look back at.  Here is a look at our latest lapbook.

We are doing The Grouchy Ladybug next week.  I can't wait to see that lapbook!

  1. That looks like such fun!

  2. That's cute & looks like fun. My kids would love that; wish I had time... maybe someday.

  3. I had no idea you had an 18 year old son! Wow! He's a man!

    The bats lapbook is great!

    And I'm so thrilled that you're going to use WP AS1! Woo hoo! :-) How fun! Will you start this fall?

    Be sure to check used books listings for bargains. I added a section about used books on my WP vs. SL page. Check that out. I got my WP LA books used. Great bargain!

  4. Thanks for sharing your lap book. Did you make all the little books yourself? We love to lapbook too. I have a couple posted on my blog as well.

    We will have to do Stelluna this next year. I love the story.
