Farm Animals Lapbook !

Posted on Updated on

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…

    Hi Sathya :) Thanks :) and He didn’t draw Eash ‘cos the minibooklet is about “animals and their Babies ” and the empty sheet said ” My Mother and me ” so its Me n HIm :)
