Lapbook Tips and Tricks
-When first starting a new learning method such as Lapbooking, allow the student to have a say in the topic. Allowing them to choose something of interest to them will ensure they give it their all.
-When working with younger kids, precut the activities.
-Let the child make it their own, do not insist things be done your own way.
-Relax and have fun with the process!
-Vocabulary Words and Timelines
- Vocabulary and Timeline activities do not have to be completed in one day. Vocabulary words can be learned throughout the entire study.
- We recommend that your student learn a few new vocabulary words each day or learn them as they are written in the Research Guide (all words in bold are vocabulary words).
- We also recommend Timeline activities be completed a little each day. Choose the vocabulary words and time periods you are going to add to your vocabulary books and timelines as you read them in the Research Guide.
- If you are working with young children or a group of children, cut out all of the graphics a day or two before beginning the lapbook and store them in a zip-top bag. It is also helpful to have all materials organized before beginning. All of our early childhood Project Packs include a full supplies list on one of the very first pages!
