The lapbook is separated into sections, one section for each Sunday of Great Lent. The student can work on the lapbook gradually, aiming to have it completed by Palm Sunday evening.

On the second Great Lent lapbooking week, we are preparing three mini-books, which are placed next to the ones we already made on Sunday of Orthodoxy.



Your lapbook from last week.
If you haven’t started it, please go back to…

You will also need scissors, glue, a hole puncher, and a paper fastener (brad), preferably a mini brad.

Envelope with accordion

This envelope holds an accordion book to work on the different types of prayer.

Learning activity

On each part of the accordion, the child writes (or draws a picture of) their own example of a type of prayer.


This mini-book focuses on the Jesus prayer. There is one version for older and one for younger children.

Learning activities

On the left-hand flap, the child writes the Jesus prayer. On each smaller flap, and while the flaps are folded, the child glues one of the story titles. Then the child lifts the small flaps and, underneath each flap, writes the Gospel verse where the prayer is mentioned in each story. Reading and discussing the whole story while searching for the specific verse is a good idea.

* For younger children, there is a simple fold book instead.

Fan book

This mini-book helps explore the life of St. Gregory Palamas. Mini brads are helpful – if you don’t have one, you can always use a regular brad and cut off the extending prongs.

Learning activitiy

On each piece, the child writes (or draws a picture of) a characteristic of St. Gregory Palamas or a fact from his life. Examples: St. Gregory Palamas… lived in the 14th century / was a monk / became Archbishop of Thessaloniki / defended the Orthodox Faith / taught us how to pray… etc.

A blessed Sunday of St. Gregory Palamas to all!
