Parts of the Body - Lapbook

Masha Allaah we finished our lapbook today. Here are the details.

She really loved making this book, she liked cutting, pasting, colouring and finding things, masha Allaah good method to develop motor skills too while having some fun at the same time.

These are pics of we working on the Lapbook. Colouring the organs, while doing that we were discussing the marvelous creation of organs and I indicated to her how Allaah has covered the body with the skin to protect the organs. Then she sequenced the steps of brushing her teeth.


We had to cut things from magazine to find what else would be her eye colour brown. So here she goes..


We had to mueasure some of the parts of the body and record it.


We traced her hands and decorated the cover.


We wrote the actions that could be done with her arms and decorated the stars with gel pens.


Pasting the answers to the Parts of the body riddle...


Then we organized all the contents to lay it out



So here is how the Lapbook looks inside...



Close up..






We had real fun doing the A-Z Exercises, and then we acted out how each creatures move pondered over how Allaah has created each one with a unique difference.



We decided to use sis Umm An Nu'man's hard work to decorate our front cover. How can I forget you my dear sis : ). So this will enable us to keep in mind the Arabic Terms too. Also I added two Aaayahs from the Quraan which talks about How beautifully Allaah has created man and how the parts of the body will bear witness on the Day of Judgment. We spoke a bit about that too, am not sure how much she understood but for sure she knew her legs and hands are going to talk on that Day. Also we added the dua to be said while looking at the mirror to the cover page. So the cover looks like this...


Masha Allaah it was a great learning experience and I enjoyed it more than Maimoonah I guess. I intend to ask her to do this Lapbook on her own when she grows up Insha Allaah. and here she she is exploring ....


One more activity left to finish the Lapbook, but I need a butcher paper or something similar to it which I do not know from where I can get over here lol. So when I do get or come up with some other alternative am hoping to that Insha Allaah : ).

We got the guide and the templates for this Lapbook from here

Ma shaa Allah you have been busy :) I love the extras you added to the freebie. How you do protect your lapbooks?

Umm Maimoonah said...

Jazzakillaah Khayr sis. Well Maimoonah is pretty ok with looking after her books. I use to fear this too. But Masha Allaah she seems to do well. This I think is may be due to introducing books method of Montessori was introduced to her at the beginning, Allaahu a'lam

Umm An-Nu'man said...

Umm An-Nu'man said...

Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

When I said I am not surprised I meant that masha'Allah, there are some people who seek out the khayr and Allah - Ar-Rahman - makes their path easy. May Allah make us from them and may He reward you for seeking the khayr for your family's education. Barak Allahu feki dear sis *smile*
