One of my favorite resources is the “Let’s Find Out” magazine by Scholastic.
The magazine comes at the beginning of each month of the school year. There are 4 magazines per month with posters. My son has really enjoyed creating lap books. I decided to create one or two lap books a month that go along with the Scholastic magazine theme. Below you will find links to the printables I used and photo’s of how I assembled this book.
- Making Friends
- School Rules
- Healthy School Day
These books fit well with apple and making friends themes.
I did not create the printables below, I found these great resources on Pinterest and used them to create this lapbook. Thank you to those that created these printables!

Each month I receive the Let’s Find Out science workbooks by Scholastic. I use these as a starting theme.
