Monkey Lapbook - Totbook

I made a new lapbook for Brodie thanks to Carisa at 1+1+1=1! She is so generous to post her templates when ever she makes a lapbook or totbook for her children.

This is the first bigger size lap book I have made Brodie. The others have all been half the size. There is definitely some areas that are a little old for him still, which is great he has something already made to grow in to.

The abc cards I kept in sets of 3 instead of cutting them all individually. I think what I will do is cut out the letters of his name and have him practice with those letters. I didn't put the lower case letters in the book yet. I will save those for a few months. The upper left corner is a sequencing game. The bottom left ia a "how many?" book. The upper and lower case alphabet are on the top right, then there is 5 Little Monkey game at the bottom. This was his favorite by far. He sang the whole song while he bounced the monkeys on the bed. Not familiar with this song? Go here. Then next to that is a "colors" book.I added the coloring page on the front. If you are interested in printing this totbook for your little one you can go here to get the pdf. Thank you Carisa once again for this awesome book!

I am also in the process of making the Very Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear Brown Bear, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and Goodnight Moon totbooks. I will post them as soon as they are done!

I found your blog from the 1+1+1=1 Tot Book download page. I think having your son work with just the letters of his name to begin with is a great idea!
