Meet Flat Mary

Before Flat Mary headed out to meet Amanda and take a little trip from Oregon to Canada with Amanda, Laurianna pulled her out of the envelope one last time to say goodbye and take a moment for a photo-op.

Everyone...Flat Mary. Flat Mary...Everyone.

Flat Stanley wins!

Flat Stanley will be making the rounds to some of our friends and will be mailed out on Monday to start off our new lapbook unit. We will post pictures of the places that he visits to share along with the lapbook unit that we make. Where will he visit first? He is taking a little trip to Canada and visiting one of our friends there, Amanda!

President's Day is done.... 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.

Look who's homeschooling now...

I'm going to post some pictures of our completed President's Day Lapbooks this week - but for now, here is a picture of Kaleb trying to join in the homeschooling fun. :)
