Bible ABC Pocket Games Lapbook–Free

ABC Pocket Games Lapbook

Currclick and A Journey Through Learning have joined up to offer this fantastic download free of charge for this week only! This $13.00 value ends Friday November 25th, so hurry and grab this one right now!

You will need a coupon code to get the lapbook for free. I am not allowed to post the code, so go to this page to get the code.

Here is what A Journey Through Learning says about their book:

Now your preschooler doesn’t have to feel left out of school! Here is a really fun and creative way for your child to practice matching upper case and lower case letters, tracing the letters, and practicing beginning sounds-all in a hands on way! This lapbook is 4 folders big!

Here is a review by Meg, a member of Heart of the Matter:

A terrific alphabet/phonics based lapbook from A Journey Through Learning is the ABC Pocket Games Lapbook. It’s a printable lapbook that requires the simple assembly of pocket-shaped envelopes, one for each letter of the alphabet. The letters on top of each pocket are traceable, making the entire lapbook interactive and practice enhancing.

For each alphabet letter, there are two high-color, detailed picture cards. To play the game, all you child must do is sound out each picture word and place it in in the pocket envelope of the letter with which that word begins. 

Convenient storage pockets are also included for easy storage and ease of preparation for the next lapbook session. Another bonus attachment is printable uppercase and lowercase letter cards, so that your child can practice matching these, as well. These have faces and arms and legs, making them fun and silly to play with, too. Clearly, there is an activity for every child, regardless of their developmental skill level and current knowledge of the alphabet. This lapbook would be just perfect for side-by-side sibling play.

I love that the lapbook also includes other activities on a separate, listed page which help to further teach alphabet letters and letter sounds!

Can You Spell F*U*N?

I bet if you have a little one, they really enjoy playing games, hearing stories, and singing songs. You might get tired of The Wheels on the Bus or The Three Little Pigs, but they sure don’t. Preschooler’s enjoy learning and playing games. Try a healthy mix of inside games, outside games, online games… Games help build important learning skills and you get to spend quality time with your precious little one. Some preschoolers are even ready to tackle beginning spelling lists. Just remember to take the hard-core learning a little slow and enjoy the ride. They are truly only young once. They have a lifetime to explore the world of learning, besides, they learn even when you are cooking in the kitchen, driving the car, or cleaning house.  They are always watching and learning from your example–Be Careful Little Eyes!
