We used some of the same books that we used last year when we learned about knights and castles. We added a couple of new Good Knight books, which are some of Jack's favorites.
Thanks to the workbox system we've been using the last month (and that I really am going to post about at some point), we are doing more felt board activities. I made this one to go over alliteration.
Another change we've made recently is to put all of our things in a notebook instead of using file folders for individual lapbooks. It is easier for Jack to look back through the things he's done this way and for some reason I seem to get the items glued in more quickly than I do with a regular lapbook. Jack decorated the pages we did this week with some of the leftover stickers from our unit last year.
We wrapped up our week with a trip to the Medieval Fair. He really enjoyed this last year and decided about a week ago that he was going to wear his knight costume.
As soon as we got there (which was after a really long walk from the parking area) he found someone to challenge to a fight. Yes, that's our stroller you see there. Thankfully I was smart enough to realize that at seven months pregnant I did not want to carry a tired four year old or even the belongings of a tired four year old. I did have to do some heavy lifting to help him get out, though, because his legs are much longer than the last time we used it--which was October of 2007 if the magazine I found in the basket is to be believed.
