Completed Columbus Lap Book

by | Oct 25, 2007 | History, Lap Books | 3 comments

Here are the photos I promised of one of the boys’ Lap Books on Columbus. I was really happy with how it turned out, especially being their first one!

Flap with Acrostic Poem folds up to show even more info:

These are the Land & Water Form Cards that we made to insert into the pockets on the left side of their Lap Books.
I didn’t realize there were so many different names for land and water bodies! I was learning right alongside the kids!

Sean was impressed… He’s been checking on me lately, by asking the boys what I taught them in school… Today they were able to show him 🙂

Update: You can find links to what we used here.

    That is awesome! We have been trying them this year too. I will have the kids check these out!
    Great job!

    This is great. I have the Dinah Zike “Big Book of Books” and what have I done with it?…absolutely zero. Hopefully seeing these displayed so beautifully will motivate me to do something like it too. By the way, HOW oh HOW do you get all this stuff done and keep your house clean and your sanity too????

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
