Preschool Corner ~ Firemen Lapbook

Both of the boys are very much into firemen and policemen at the moment, so we took advantage of that this week and I put together a fireman lapbook for Zachary {and also for Kaleb}.

Zachary was hilarious when I pulled out all of the printables and asked if he wanted to do some ‘schoolwork’. When he saw what it was, he ran and grabbed his marker box and plopped himself down to start working right away. I had to help put some of the lapbook / lapfolder together, but he had fun coloring and cutting some things out to put it all together.

This is a picture of the inside/outside of our fireman lapbook that we did. I used a file folder ~ no fancy folding, and just punched it with a 3 hole punch when we were done so we could put it into a binder to keep on a nearby shelf.

The front cover is a 16 piece puzzle that is part of the download. Zachary pieced it together and then we worked to glue it on the cover. The back cover is one of the other printables, a shadow matching game that features different things that firemen use.

Inside the lapbook we added our pattern strip to the top, a color word and ‘simple’ reader, words that firemen use, spelling his name, and counting/sequencing from 1-10 using the Dalmatian's spots.

You can download individual pieces for the fireman lapbook on my website or the full file {it’s around 2.5 MB}. I will be updating it soon with additional resources for games and other activities too!
