Free Math Lapbook (PreK – K)

Here is the free math lapbook ED (and I) made together. It has all kinds of different activities she was working on from the days of the week and months of the year to the concept of odd-even, more-less, doubling, and other things!

Free Math Lapbook for PreK - Kindergarten

At the end of the year last year, I had ED cut out and put together a math lapbook. We didn’t go over much of the material in it, but I wanted the lapbook mostly done for the beginning of this year.

We had a few finishing touches. For example, we hadn’t attached the left and right hands — so ED glued those on the front of her lapbook. (We have yet to add a title as well!)

If you’ve never made a lapbook, you can see that you take the front and back of the file folder and fold them to meet in the center. You can add pages on the inside as needed. For this lapbook, I taped in one more page (another file folder cut in half).

She also glued in the doubles (1+1 through 9+9):

The lapbook includes a game for learning/reviewing the concept of odd-even numbers.  We pulled out her lapbook and we played the butterfly game.  We took out all the butterflies and each took a butterfly net. ED rolled the die and pulled out that number of butterflies to put in her net. Then I rolled the die and grabbed that number of butterflies.  ED then spun the spinner to see who would win the round.  If it landed on odd — then anyone who had an odd number of butterflies won.  If it landed on more — then the person with the most butterflies won the round. It was quite possible that we tied for that round.

In this post, I explained a little bit more about what we did with the calendar pieces of the math lapbook. Also, there is a free Daily Calendar Page at that post as well, which looks like this:

By the way, ED spent a lot of the fall working on doubling… and you’ll find all kinds of free math worksheets and games I’ve made for her the past 4 or 5 months by looking through the Kindergarten Math Category (in the sidebar). I made things like this kitty doubling race game, doubling game with Pete the Cat,

We made a lot of lapbooks together when my kids were 3-6 years old.  If you want to learn more about labpooks, you might want to explore the lapbook category to visit some of our past projects.

Lapbooks can be a lot of fun for the littlies:
