Hello, everyone! Here in South Carolina it is really warming up, so before I take a ride with my husband to the beautiful town of Charleston, I wanted to make sure I left you with something fun and free to bring in the new season.
I’m a lapbook fanatic! I love finding and making activities that fold and flap because they really engage students and give them practice with fine motor skills.
Here are some spring-related folding minibooks that I have used in the past in my classroom.
Practice vocabulary or record details about a topic with this folding flower. The main topic can be written in the middle. The petals fold inward, so they can write facts inside each petal that are revealed when the petals are lifted. Or they can review vocabulary by writing the word on the outside of a petal and writing the definition inside the petal. Click the flower to download this freebie.
I also have an accordion folding book on the seasons.
Students decorate each tree according to the correct season and match the right name with the right season tree. Then the book is folded like a fan or an accordion. This would be great for a science interactive notebook or a lapbook. Click the image for the download. I also have this available in Spanish, so click here for that freebie.
If you’d like more freebie templates like these for lapbooking or interactive notebooks, you can dowload them for free by clicking here.
It’s almost spring! Although it’s crunch-time in our classrooms, the warm weather makes everything so much more pleasant in my opinion. Hope your spring is spectacular!
