Inside of the Lapbook

Children will be led through different activities to help them learn ways of communicating. Lapbooks are incredibly popular and a brilliant way of working one to one with a child. Children just love those little pockets. Let the child help you make the lapbook. They will love all the cutting and sticking. The huge benefit of these lapbooks is that once they are made they can be sent home (after you have taken photos for evidence of course). This will help parents to see what their child has been working on and maybe continue the work at home.


You need…

Access to a printer to print off the pockets and cards, a laminator, glue stick, scissors and a die (for one of the games). You will need an A3 piece of card in any colour. The pockets are included in black and white too so the child can colour them in or if you want to save on ink.
