How to Get Started with Your A Christmas Carol Lapbook

Follow these simple instructions to get started with the lapbook.

  1. Get a copy of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Read it together (younger student) or let your student read it independently.
  2. Buy the A Christmas Carol Lapbook from the Tip-Top Printables Shop.
  3. Choose which version to print: the full color mini-books or the black and white mini-books. If you want to use black ink, but your student doesn’t enjoy coloring, consider printing on brightly colored paper (red, yellow, and green might be best for this lapbook).
  4. Print the mini-books.
  5. Let your student complete them as you read the book together. Have fun! As a fun bonus activity, watch the movie version.
