We have had a lot of fun doing our Stone Soup Unit with our first (of what I hope to be many) lap book!
Mr. T has learned all sorts of new things! We made Stone Soup for supper one night and acted out the story with his ImagiNext Eagle Talon Castle. I even let him play with a sword we made from toilet paper rolls and a construction paper pad backing. We have to go flimsy on anything that could be used against Mr. F. The awesome *free* lap book pieces came from Lapbook Lessons. We just printed and colored and glued. Here are some pictures of our unit fun!

Allowing toddlers and pre-readers to have hands-on experience with the story is a great way to increase comprehension. Years after the original post (Mr. T is nearly 6!), we now have many wonderful puppets, cardboard box imagination stations, and activities we use to make our literature very hands on.

I can’t wait to do more fun lap books, and now that we have done one, I think the next unit will have a lot more fun things in the lap book itself. Do you have a great resource you’d like to share? We’d love to have a few more.
