Preschool Lapbooking Tips
Tips on how to go about preschool lapbooking and the benefits of using lapbooks.
They say that good books touch our lives like good friends.
Since so much of our learning is literature-based, I have realized that I also need to use creative, fun, hands on activities, so that my children would enjoy having something tangible to show for their efforts ... so from time to time, we create a file folder project or 'lapbook' about a topic we have been studying together.
Preschool lapbooking may either focus on a theme or they may be based on a children's story book. A lapbook is a portfolio or collection of mini-booklets of different shapes and sizes, which are arranged and attached to a coloured cardboard folder (or two or more folders joined together). Unlike a poster project, a lapbook can easily be folded up and stored and it can fit on your lap when you review it.

Lapbooks or mini-book projects enable children to work with small bits of information at a time. Even so, depending on the age and maturity of your child/ren, you will need to help and supervise the project considerably if you want it to look presentable on completion.
