President's Day is done....
...at least on paper in our house it's done! :) Yes, I know President's Day isn't until next Monday, but we finished the lapbook ahead of time and now we are spending time reviewing the things that we've talked about. Laurianna is already excited to move onto the next lapbook - and can't decide what to do (what a problem, huh?). Should it be Little House in the Big Woods or Flat Stanley. I think I'm leaning toward the latter....
For this lapbook we actually glued two file folders together and then added in our mini-books. In this one we covered quite the range of topics: the Presidential seal, our current President, what all happens on President's Day, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, vocabulary, made a log cabin...the list goes on. Definitely enough to fill two books up! Here are our pictures (which Laurianna was more than happy to model for you!).
In case you are wondering, I got several of the lapbook pieces through Homeschool Share and a few activities through Enchanted Learning, and some I just put together on my own, like the joke section (because the girls just love jokes!!), vocabulary, presidential seal info, etc... I just used some blank templates.
