Update: This lapbook is currently not avaible. God willing, The Crafty Contemplative will begin selling electronic resources soon. Check back here on the blog, or visit the shop, for news.
The Holy Week Lapbook
If you’re not familiar with lapbooks, they are a visual information organizer for kids. Using a standard file folder or any type of paper, your children can create a portable, easily displayable project based on information they’ve learned.
With the Holy Week Lapbook, you’ll travel day by day through the week leading to Pascha. For each day, there is a Scripture reading and child-level commentary explaining the significance of the day. Read and learn about the day with your child, then make a piece of the lapbook. At the end, you’ll have a “lift the flaps” style book. The front of each component gives a clue to each day, and the inside tells which day is which. You’ll have your own Holy Week memory game to stimulate conversation with your child and help him or her make connections between what is happening at church services and the story of the death and Resurrection of Christ.
Don’t have the time or desire for big craft projects? Lapbooks are the perfect thing. Make them as fancy or simple as you want. All you need is paper and a printer. The extras aren’t necessary.
Note: If you purchased the Holy Week Learning Box from me through Orthodox Christian Craft Supply, know that the Study Guide for the Lapbook is the same as the Learning Box. The difference is the added templates for lapbooking.
I have other lapbooks in the works. Feast Days, Lives of the Saints, etc. Much more coming soon!
