First grade lapbooks

We have been using the Five In A Row (FIAR) curriculum this year with our first grader. The curriculum is a little simple, and needs something extra to fill the time each day. Lapbooks are the perfect time-filler and curriculum enchancer!  I have found a bunch of FIAR lapbooks on the website They have lots of FIAR resources for each manual (there are four), and for each title that is discussed each week. I like the notebook titles, which I have printed, laminated and use on our calendar in the "Book of the Week" section. I also like the copywork which has one sentence to trace from each book. Each book also has a related lap book, which I have been printing each Friday, doing some prep work of cutting, and then working on a few mini-books each day to complete one lapbook each week!

I also like the Draw-Write-Now go-alongs, showing in the Draw-Write-Now books how to draw different people, animals and things from the books. I have ordered a few of the manuals and hope to use them more this fall!

I love how each of them turned out, they are great! I love all of the learning that took place too!

1 Kings 3:3Solomon showed his love for the LORD by walking according to the instructions given him by his father David, except that he offered sacrifices and burned incense on the high places.

Psalm 17:7
Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes.

1 John 4:9
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
