Firstly, for those of you who were having problems subscribing to the blog, I have rectified the problem. Please visit the page at the top of the blog that is called: ‘To subscribe to this blog…’ and follow the directions.
Secondly, do visit the old entries of the blog for work that we have done when R was 2.5 years+. (See the side panel for the monthly archive).
Like I stated in a recent post, we have become a little lapbook crazy! Last week, we completed 2 lapbooks and this week we are working on another one.
As you know, we are working on telling the time. R had a wristwatch that I bought her, but has lost it. She is absolutely devastated. But I am adamant that I will not buy her another one as she has to learn to look after her things! Anyway, we made this lapbook – which in my opinion has everything you need to teach your child how to tell the time. Here are some pics:
R making a paper clock to go into the lapbook.
The digital card packs have different times on them. R pulls out a card and then has to show the time on the clock.
This fan mini book teaches the 5 minute ‘slots’ of time. She had to draw the clock hand to represent 10 minutes past, 20 mins past. She uses this mini book a lot to help her put the time on the analogue clock as per the digital card.
Here, R had to colour in the triangle to represent the 15 min ‘slots’. This has taught her quarter past, half past, quarter to and o’clock.
I took this from this wonderful blog. R really enjoyed making this. A lot of copywork went into this blog which was an option I took.
I measured and weighed R to put into this heart-shaped mini book. And she uses the tape measure to measure her doll’s hijabs etc.
This was her favourite part of her lapbook and she at least takes her Muslim doll out weekly. Here, we cut out the doll, laminated it and put it together. Then, we printed and cut out all her clothes. R coloured them in and the doll sometimes wears a skirt and blouse if she is at home, and puts on her abaya and handbag if going out! R loves it.
To finish off this long post, we also made this; it was to reinforce the ‘sh’, ‘ch’, and ‘th’ sounds. In case you think it is a lollipop – lol. It isn’t. It is a traffic light. R copied the sh, ch, th on the outside and wrote words with that sound in them on the inside of the traffic lights.
