But....All My Friends Are Doing It????!!!!!

Well, I have succumb to peer pressure. All my blog buddies started getting these super nifty blog backgrounds and I can't be left behind! Where would this world be without progress, you know?
As promised, here are pictures of the elements we added to complete our Native American Lapbook!

This is the cover .

Inside is a flap with the Native American legend "The Invisible Warrior" which is a whole lot like "Cinderella" It was neat to see how oral traditions of stories differ from culture to culture.If you lift the flap up, you get a section devoted to the Three Sisters (corn, bean, and squash) that were so important to the Native Americans. The top of the section has a quote about the Three Sisters and this Flap book template you can get at the Homeschool Share site (just click it in my sidebar). The bottom section is the Legend of the Three Sisters.
Open the cover and you get this nifty little book that explains the purpose of each plant in a three sister's garden.
I also promised I would share Lillie's new Phonics lapbook. I used some templates from Homeschool Share's Phonics lapbook, but also pulled from ABC Teach's site to get the Word Wheels and Word Strips.
The yellow pieces velcro on and off! Where would I be without Velcro?

These word strips are totally neat! You must succumb to peer pressure as well and go print some of these. Now that I have a new look, I have gotten my fix. Now I won't feel the need to rearrange my furniture ...


  1. love the new look and can I borrow your indian ideas? we are still on the mend here I feel like I was ran over by a semi! where did you find the invisible indian story?

  2. I'll shoot you an email with the links I used, okay? Glad you're on the road to recovery!

  3. Ooooohhhhhh How pretty!!! I just love the new look. Doesn't it make you feel so much better when you rearrange something! It does me, or it could just be that I ain't quite right in the head ya know. Love the indian lapbook too how neat my kids and I are working on this really big leaf collection, and I can't wait to finish it. I'll post pics as soon as I get it done. Brandie
