Me and Yuvan started last week , with simple categorising and learning and revision of what he knows about animals through lapbooking .
The first phase was done last week, with Farm animals , and we kicked off writing what and how to differentiate between Wild animals and Farm animals.
This time around I ventured into making different types of booklets used in lapbooking – courtesy :- JUST GOOGLE
So to write about the simple facts on the Farm and Wild animals, we used a 3/4 th open page which gives him enough space to write in and also a nice way to
use it in the front cover of the Lapbook
and Yuvan did a general Barn picture - coloring and labeling the many animals on them …
The 3/4 th open Information page
And then we did 3 mini booklets of different designs -
The first one covering ”who lives on the barn ? “
The second Booklet covering the ”What do they say ? ” like a Pig says Oink
The third covering Animals and their Babies
And we did two maths related simple worksheets –
dot to dot to draw a pig but by counting in 2′s
And reverse counting from 10 to 1
And a simple one covering the Male/Female and the baby of the most common far animals….
And the most memorable stuff was ,in the animals and babies booklet, there was an empty page which just stated ”My mother and me ” And he instantly drew us.. And a worthy fact to record, Yuvan is off late so interested in drawing objects ,people and trying to explain about things he understood by process drawing… like a simple “how rain comes ?”using his drawing skills…
