Little House in the Big Woods Lapbook

February 8, 2010 at 8:28 am (Uncategorized)

Well, we finished reading The Little House in the Big Woods and completed our lapbooks!  This was SO much fun!  I was thrilled when we read the last page of the book and my 6 year old little man said "When can we start the next one?"  YAY!  This is the first chapter book he has really, really listened to every word of.  He LOVED it! 

So here are our lapbooks!

The covers…I bought these checkered file folders a couple years ago and this is the first time we have used them.  They were perfect for this lapbook!

Folder number one.  The heart booklet is the poems that were on the candies the girls were given when they visited the store in town for the first time.  There are also booklets about Pa’s gun, churning butter, what food is stored in the attic, and a smokehouse, complete with a dot of liquid smoke to make it smell authentic.

This side has….Our origami pigs bladder, sewn pocket from when Mary rips her pocket in the story, Pa’s fiddle, animals in the Big Woods,cheese wheel, soap whittling booklet and our fires we marble painted.

Here you can see a second pic of what’s in the attic and the smokehouse.  On the other flap we have our booklet on their nightly prayer, a booklet on lying and a booklet on what things were done in each season.
Lastly we have the kids drawings they did about Pa and the Bear in the Way.

We all loved, loved, loved doing this lapbook and all the great activities that go along with it!  You can find the free lapbook HERE.

Happy Homeschooling,

    This is so great! I'm bookmarking it to use next year as I'm planning on going through all the books throughout the year.

    Thanks for your great blog! I look forward to each day's post.

    I am taking my co-op class through this book right now, we are lapbooking it too, with some of the same resources you are using and some from other sources. I think its a big hit so far.
