I finally got the pirate lapbook finished last night. I am so excited, and so was my son! I wanted to give him more practice using a dictionary and writing---at least a little bit---so there are a lot of parts requiring those skills.
My son woke up and went straight into the dining room where the lapbook was waiting for him. I managed to get him to stop for breakfast, but he's hard at it again. it's amazing how excited he is to do some "schoolwork" when it is about something he's terrifically interested in!
The only problem is that both his brother and sister are now eagerly anticipating their own lapbooks! S-man's face fell when he thought I was making the same one for his siblings. I quickly reassured him that J-Dawg's lapbook will be about Siberian tigers and his sister's about Dogs(their requests).
I'll be posting pictures of the pirate lapbook tonight. My husband took pictures of it but didn't download them to my computer. In the meantime, I'm thrilled with his excitement!
