1. We listened to about two chapters each day. Chapters 1 and 2 are here, to find the rest go to the main page of Under the Grapevine.
2. I found some free Lapbook stuff here:
3. There's a fancier lapbook you can buy here with more writing pages for older kids:
It turns out, I'm not really into lapbooks. Maybe its the age of my kids, but it seems like too much cutting for me, and not enough stuff for them. Plus, I don't like all the clip art people use, and I ended up printing some of the original illustrations from the book and pasting them over the clip art - which was just more unnecessary work (for me, not the kids!). Still we like a lot of the ideas and activities other people come up with, so we use them as starting points. We ended up assembling most of our work into a folder instead.
4. Cool map of narnia to print: http://folk.uio.no/solveii/NarniaMap.jpg
5. Really excellent traditional turkish delight recipe (not too many ingredients) with a video: http://titlisbusykitchen.com/archives/turkish-delight
I just felt like we HAD to make turkish delight. To talk about foods from other times and places, to get our hands dirty, to try this thing I'd never had. I was prepared for it to be not awesome, so I think I was pleasantly satisfied.
I bought rose water online because it seems to be the most traditional form, and probably what Edmund had, but I'd like to try it again with a cinnamon version because my kids are more likely to eat that. I really did like the turkish delight, and we all loved making it. It was a really cool process. It got dry and gooey (do those go together) after a few days, and so we ended up throwing most of it out. So maybe make a half recipe next time? Or share with friends?
On to Prince Caspian!
...well, maybe in a few months. :)
