Interactive Thanksgiving Lap Book

Happy Sunday everyone.  I recently completed my Fire Safety Lap Book.  My little ones absolutely loved it.  They had so much fun learning about fire safety then putting their entire book together themselves.  They were so proud of it, they couldn't wait to take it home to show their parents and practice what they learned.

So I had to create another one, just in time for Thanksgiving.  My new Thankgiving Lap Book is just like my last one.  It's full of fun writing prompts, activities and interactive ways for your little ones to learn about what Thanksgiving is really about and why it is they are thankful.

I know my little ones originally believe that Thanksgiving is about having a big meal and spending time with family and maybe some relatives they don't see all the time.  With this lap book, your little ones will be able to express what Thanksgiving is about, who and why they are thankful and even learn how to catch a turkey or two.  It's full of different ways to get your students interest and get them involved and excited for the holidays. 

Here's some pics of what is included in the interactive lapbook.  

This cute book has black and white as well as color versions for your class.  The activities are interactive, exciting and so much fun to complete.  This lapbook has a lot of tasks that can be used for centers, buddy work or even at home with family.  It can take a bit to complete, so starting one day at a time will be exciting and something your little ones look forward to completing.

The cute turkey craft is something your class will enjoy doing.  Have them do it towards the end as a last minute treat to complete the book.  

There are reading prompts, writing prompts and everything in between.  I am so excited for my little ones to really think about who they are thankful for and why.

This book is sure to get your kids excited to learn the meaning of Thanksgiving and wanting to complete this activity with their siblings and family.  Grab this now and have your month set with this activity that can be done a little bit each day.

Fire Safety Lap Book

Happy Monday all!  It's October.  My favorite month for work and my personal life.  There's so much to do and enjoy.  I like to make sure my little ones have a great month.  There's a few important topics to review in October.  One being Fire Safety.  


Fire Safety is introduced/reviewed the first week of October.  However I really like to make it a month type of thing.  It's definitely an important lesson to review and I like to take my time with it.   I also feel like my little ones enjoy learning about fire safety because it has them interact with their parents about it and they like coming up with a meeting place or plan when trying to prepare.  

I have created this cute Fire Safety Flap Book and hope to start the conversation with my little ones and see how much they know. I can't wait to get started on it this week.  It's a different and very hands on approach to an important lesson that should really be talked about regularly.  Here's a snipped of whats included and in this set.

The front part is a useful list of the top tips for being fire safe.  You can discuss it as a class, write in on the board or have them come up with it after learning more about fire safety.  Inside is an array of self assessments, vocabulary words, writing prompts, keywords and important information.

I think when learning about fire safety, your little ones know what the important words are such as hydrant, match, smoke detector and fire extinguisher.  These are words they should be remembering as they are discussed more and more.  

The important information includes cards such as where to meet, important names and family numbers, any pets, etc, fire departments, etc. Having these cards are good for your little ones to practice the information so they are prepared in case of an emergency.

The backside to the flap book is an extra few more tips and lessons to secure your kiddos have understood the lesson.  These cute writing prompts can be done in the classroom, during center time or even at home with their parents.  It's an interactive way to put what they learned onto paper.

This flap book includes:
instructions and pictures for the flap book
writing prompts
can have are
self assessments
picture words
importan information
first next last
fireman picture words

You can grab the prompts for the Fire Safety Flap Book here.  Fire Safety should be fun and interactive in order to ensure memory and understanding of the lesson and concept.

Happy Fire Safety Week!
