St. Therese Lap Book

by | Sep 21, 2011 | Lap Books, St. Therese | 8 comments

Last year I posted pictures from my oldest daughters St. Therese Lap Book.   With the feast of St. Therese coming up soon, I thought I would share pictures from Chiquita’s St. Therese Lap Book, which she recently completed.  These Lap Books were made using the excellent St. Therese the Little Flower Faith Folder created by Holy Learning (previously Faith Folders for Catholics)!

Note: Unfortunately Holy Learning no longer seems to be active now either and I removed the link… It currently seems to be available here.

Chiquita opted to use this lovely Rose Coloring Page (link removed since it was no longer active), printed onto Card Stock, for her lap book cover.   She also created her lap book using a 1 folder layout with an additional page/flap added inside.

Left Flap:
  • “The Little Flower Timeline”

Left Flap:

  • “The Little Flower Timeline”

Center:

  • “The Martin Family” Open-Up Book Set
  • “The Road to Carmel” Pick-a-Tab Book
  • “The Martin Sisters” Square Fold-Out Book
Back of Inserted Page:
  • “The Process of Sainthood” Multiple Flaps Book
  • “Unlikely Patron of Missions” Rectangle Book
  • “Doctors of the Church” Square Fold-Up Book
  • “Sacrifices and the Little Way” Heart Shape Book
  • “Discalced Carmelites” Pentagon Book
~ Back Cover ~ 

My children love all of the paper dolls at Paper Dali, and Chiqita decided to create a pocket on the back cover of her lap book for her St. Therese paper doll
She used a lovely St. Therese Coloring Page from Waltzing Matilda for the outside of the Paper Doll pocket. 
Before I go, here is a list from last year (which I will probably update and re-post next week if I have the time) with other Ideas for Celebrating the Feast of St. Therese, or you can browse through all our past St. Therese posts here!

    These lap books are so neat. I've never made one, but I think I'm going to give this a try for my coop class- the only problem is that they might not be so keen on pink and flowers since they are all boys!

    The Lap Book comes with some great cover options… My girls just decided to go with lots of extra roses for St. Therese. 🙂

    My boys are still working on this particular Lap Book, and one of them choose a Red File Folder, and the other Green (i think).

    This turned out beautifully! I'd like to give lap books a try this year. With this being our first year of homeschooling, I probably could find many to fit in here and there … Is this part of your actual subjects (i.e., religion), or are they extra? I am trying to look for things that I can do with ALL of my children. You know, group subjects together. Trying to do things separately is a bit exhausting! The three oldest are in first, second and third grades …

    P.S. Besides Faith Folders for Catholics, are there any other resources that you like?

    Sarah ~ It depends on the subject. Sometimes I plan them as part of our actual subjects, and sometimes they are extra. Usually it is the Catholic Lap Books that are supplemental, when we have the extra time.

    This year my daughter is making a Science Lap Book for Zoology (my boys wanted to try out the Journal this year for the first time) and they are all making Lap Books to go along with our American History plans (the boys are using Lap Book Printables from Homeschool in the Woods, and I think the girls will be mainly using the Free Historical American Girl printables from Homeschool Share). I also have my oldest daughter working on a First Confession Lap Book (Faith Folders for Catholics).

    Hello! I can't find working links… does this lapbook still exist somewhere? I'd love to use it for my Little Flowers Club. Thank you!

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.
