March CTR Lapbook

Living Prophets Teach Me to Choose the Right

This month’s lapbook is BIG!  If you want to use all of the mini books I have prepared, you will need to set it up as a double folder lapbook.  Check out this video that shows you how.


Download, print, and glue the Title Page to the front of the folder.

Also prepare the back cover by printing the Dot to Dot, cover it with contact paper and hot glue it to the back.  This dot to dot can be used over and over again with a dry erase marker or crayon.  This Dot to dot is a JPG file.  You can right click to “save image as” and open and resize it in a Word Doc or open it in a picture viewer such as Picasa.com and print it as a full sheet.

  1. Help!!!
    Is there any way to do a more simple version of these lapbooks. May be a black and white that the kids could color. I would like to use these is our branch but could not afford all the ink it would take to do color. I don’t think they would look as nice if I just photo copy them?

    • Dear Friend, You have a very valid concern about printing costs. The lapbooks I have created have more color than the traditional ones I’ve seen online, but I think this aspect is one of the things that makes them unique. I’ve tried to have less than 1/4 of the page in color, and I’ve also tried to be a paper saver by combining as many elements that I can on a page. Most of the colored portions are parts that are visible such as the pockets, front cover, and title pages of the mini books. One option would be to print out blank pocket templates and hand write the info on a master copy. If you know your way around Photoshop, you can edit the text that way (which is how I created the minibooks and pockets). Another easy way to add color but save on ink, would be to used colored paper for your pockets or even cut a sealed envelop in half to form a pocket. You could have the children draw their own cover picture or write the title with markers. You could also type the words to the song in a fun font and call it good. Instead of adding the colored clip art to jazz things up, you could use a rubber stamp with colored ink, crayons, and markers. No matter how you do it, I know the kids will love having a lapbook all about primary. Here are some links that have blank templates available: http://homeschoolshare.com/lapbooking_resources.php http://lapbooklessons.com/LapbookTemplates.html Hope some of my ideas help. CTR LeeAnn
