I will be the first to admit I am not that creative and I did not want to spend loads and loads of time with this. I searched and searched for one, either free or one to be bought, and to my dismay, could not find one that met my requirements. So, I took my uncreative side, searched around the 'net and found some resources. Thanks to some Word savvy friends that helped me tweak things, I came up with one.
I also included a simple five day lesson plan on how and when to use the lapbook, what projects you can to do coincide with the portion of the lapbook you are doing that day, and a list of other resources you can use to find out more about Halloween and the things that go with it that the lapbook doesn't address.
Click here to take you to the lapbook. It is in PDF format.
Then print out the lapbook. Have your child color the front and back pages. Place the cover facedown on the lapbook and put on of the folder flaps on it. Trace the edge of the folder. Cut the cover page along the line you traced.
Glue each piece to the front flaps of the lapbook.
Color and paste the back cover to the back of the lapbook.
I will not go into detail on how to put each component into the lapbook since I do this in the lapbook lesson plan, but this is what it will look like when you are done. (Ignore the writing on the folder - I had to use an old one for demonstration purposes for this blog post :)) But, this is what the inside will look like when you are done.
