Baloo and I have been working on his first kindergarten lapbook for about a week and a half now. He saw Dolphin Tale with Daddy a few weeks ago and was so interested in dolphins! Then his Gigi sent him a book about the movie Dolphin Tale and he was hooked. So I asked him if he wanted to learn more about dolphins and he was very excited!
I tried really hard to let him decide what was going to be in this book and to write down as much as he wanted. I wanted it to be something he could accomplish and be proud of.
I wrote ‘dolphin’ in yellow highlighter and had him trace it. And then we followed a tutorial on how to draw a dolphin (can be found here) for the other side.
How Long Are They?
Lobtailing, Bowriding, and Breaching
The ocean dolphin and river dolphin accordion books I made myself using pictures from this website.
The best part of this lapbook was all the 1-on-1 time. We would work on it every day that the younger boys would nap together. He hasn’t picked the topic for our next lapbook but I am really excited to get it started!
