Blogger Product Swap- Back to School Lapbook & Giveaway

Today I am linking up with Cara from Creative Playground for a Back to School Product Swap.  I was paired with Jennifer from Cupcakes and Curriculum.  I have to admit, I was blown away with her products!  If you haven't had a chance to check out her TPT store, you are missing out!  Her products are amazing!  Not only are her products cute, but they are well-made and rigorous.  It is really hard to believe she is a 2nd year teacher!  A-MAZ-ING!
I was able to pick one item from Jennifer's TPT store, and I ended up choosing her I Am a Fourth Grader! {Back to School Interactive Lapbook Project}.  This resource is also available in a 2nd and 3rd grade version!
I have been looking for a new back to school activity for my 4th graders.  As soon as I saw this resource, I knew I didn't need to look any further!  This lapbook contains so many activities- I absolutely love it!  First of all, I was really excited that I only needed to copy 3 pages per student.  (Our copies and paper are limited, so saving paper is a HUGE concern of mine!)  These 3 pages are jam-packed with so many tasks!

The lapbook was easy to put together.  We started off with coloring all three pages and then cutting and gluing everything.  I love how it all fits together in one file folder.  Here is a picture of the cover:

Once the cover was put together, I was able to move to the inside of the folder.  Here are some pictures of the foldables that are included for the inside of the lapbook:

One of my favorite things is that this resource first asks the students to tell about themselves, such as what they are most looking forward to learning in 4th grade, little-known facts about themselves, and all of their favorite things.  Then, students have the opportunity to get to know their classmates by finding other students who share their same interests/likes.
This activity is An All About Me/Find Someone Who all wrapped in one!!  I am so excited to start off the school year with this project! 

Jennifer also reviewed a set of my Math Posters, so head on over to Cupcakes and Curriculum to read her blog post!

Want to win a copy of both of our resources?  Enter the rafflecopter below to win a Back to School Interactive Lapbook from Jennifer and a set of Math Posters from my TPT store.  The winner will be able to choose the grade level for each of these resources.
