I just wanted to share our secondary activity during the main hours of Inauguration-watching today. Last night I downloaded a free lapbook file from Curr-Click which was created for today’s ceremony. The packet contained pages of history and trivia to read together and then a series of pages with very simple flaps to glue on.
It was the first lapbook-style project we’d done, since JediBoy is generally a reluctant writer. He enjoyed making it, but didn’t want to write more than three or four answers at a time. He did like gluing the pieces down (I cut them out) and decorating them with colored pencils. We glued each page onto a piece of construction paper, punched holes and tied the book together with yarn. He was quite pleased with it in the end.
The very first thing JediBoy did when we got home from karate was to show PisecoDad the book, and read through it with him. He was so proud of his work and said to me, “Do you think one day that your grandkids, my kids, will read this too?” I told him that of course they will! This one’s a keeper.
