Curious George Lapbook

My kindergartner did his first lapbook this week, on Curious George.  Obviously, he had a lot of help putting it together, but he did all the little activities inside.  He colored, cut, stapled, folded, glued, and used the paper trimmer.  It was right up his alley.  He, like my older son, is NOT a workbook kid!!  My girls used to take workbooks when they were little and color every page and trace every dotted letter; then they asked for more.  Not the boys!  They need hands-on projects.  When my husband got home, I showed him the lapbook and said, "Our son had fun today."  He said, "Looks like Mommy had fun, too!"  Well, yeah, it was a nice way to spend a morning!

I laminated the puzzle pieces and matching cards below, so he can play with them again and again.  This is a nice book to take in the car, to the doctor's office waiting room, etc.

You can get the templates used in this lapbook at  A lot of the letters are missing from the alphabet cards, so you may have to make some of your own.  You can also find an excellent "Curious George" unit study at Homeschool Share.
