Revealing our mini project

We were working on our very first lapbook – on frogs. Ern already knew about it’s life cycle but eversince the project, she knew much more than just the life cycle. Most importantly she enjoyed the whole process of it. I got her involved in some writing, pasting, crafting, painting etc…

We first went to the library to get more books on frogs, read them over and over again : ) then I surfed the Internet for some ready made resources and made other materials and got down to putting them altogether. I am very pleased that ern is very receptive of the idea and we are moving on to the next topic tomorrow.

Here it is! Our very first lapbook:

We sang song “five little speckled frogs” and she loved removing each frog when it’s time for them to “jump into the pond”.

There’s also a mini arts and craft session using a paper plate painted in green for it’s body, the feet are actually ern’s hand print, googly eyes and a smiley face. All done by ern. (I did the cutting of the feet)

Got this mini book online for free. She loves to read this repeatedly.

Differences between a frog and a toad.. She loves to point out the bull frog (third one from the top) because she remember having touched a life one before at a coffee shop near my mum’s place.

Here’s a short video of her doing sone rhyming words:

So that’s about it for our “frog lapbook”. Try it and you will know that it’s worth it ; )
