  1. For those who lapbook, what do you make sure you always have on hand? And how do you keep organized?
  2. I toyed with the idea of lapbooks last year but decided against it as I figured it would be a form of busywork and would require a lot of cutting and fiddling on my part. Fast forward a year -- we put together a few foldables in a notebook for an Olympics unit study and ds LOVED it. We were already doing FIAR and I decided to try adding a lapbook for one of the weeks -- huge success!! In fact, it has made FIAR into something completely different. We have now "rowed" four books with lapbooks added and I can't believe how much more we are getting out of our studies. We tape the lapbook foldables into a notebook, and Ds reads and rereads it for fun. He remembers *everything* we have done this month because he keeps reviewing it on his own. He went from reluctantly printing a short sentence in WWE (with a huge fuss about how printing is no fun) to wanting to print captions everywhere in the notebook. He is excited to work on our lapbooks each day. Ds has asked if we can do lapbooks for science. He is also wanting to start a nature journal (which I wanted to do last year and he had no interest -- I'm now so excited!). What resources have helped you with lapbooks/notebooks? I found homeschoolshare (excellent!). I search for blogs on the topic we are covering and have found a few that use lapbooks. It would be great to have a list of blogs where you can see really good example lapbooks. Can you overdo it by creating books for too many subjects? If you have lots of lapbook projects, do you work on them all each day or do you organize your work to only have one topic a week/day? Is there anything else you can tell me about how lapbooks/notebooks work in your homeschool? Tips on getting started?
  3. Do you buy kits? Do you print free kits from websites? Do you make your own from scratch? Do you put them together or do your kids put them together? Do you do this alone as a study or do you do other things at the same time? What have been your favorite lap books that you have done?
  4. FYI! There are some great LAPBOOKS for sale here if you enjoy doing them. We have used the Apologia books several times and they are great.

  5. So...I got the Explorers to WWII project stuff. I have *never* done lapbooks before. I know I'm not going to do this right. I mean, how in the world do I know where things go? I realize it's color, cut, paste/tape type of stuff...but I want it to look NICE, too. I'm in over my head, here. I just know it. Those of you who lapbook, please hold my hand. I'm not a lap-booker, but I know my middle kids (especially) will LOVE this. I'm using it in conjunction with VP Self-paced on-line (Explorers to 1815), to enrich that. If we don't have $$$ for next year, I will be forced to use it for 1815 to modern ages. HEELLLPP! Thank you.
  6. I came across the "Lapbooking Through .." e-books by Elemental Science and I'm wondering if they are stand-alone or do you have to have the curriculum to go with them (are they just supplements)? Has anyone ever used any of these? If so, did you like them?
  7. This is a work-in-progress for me as well as for my kids, but so far, I've created free PDF lapbook components for the first 4 chapters of this wonderful book, and I plan to create at least one more for each of the remaining chapters. I think a lapbook is exactly what ACG needs! Here’s what I’ve done so far (thumbnails and download links at my blog): 00 - Geographical Reading List / Sticker Chart 01 - The Earth, My Home 01b - Papier-Mache Globe project photo 02/03 - The Atmosphere 02b - Good Ozone / Bad Ozone 03b - The Atmosphere is a Blanket 04 - Fitting Together the Puzzle Enjoy!! :001_smile:
  8. I put the pictures on my blog of the Iliad lapbook my son and I did as a pre-reading activity for the book. I've been trying to mix up how he studies each unit in his lit/history study. They are all research in one form or another but I want his mind to be able to gather and organize material in whatever way he is asked. I'm having a lot of trouble trying to get the pictures and the text to look nice so I'm giving up and just going with what I've got. :confused:
  9. I was wondering if anyone does/has done lapbooks in highschool for history and the sciences? I am going to incorporate lapbooks in with US/American history and Chemistry this year. I have always used lapbooks with my boys in elementary and middle school. I had not planned on doing lapbooks this year but my son wanted to know if we could do lapbooks with history and science. He told me that he remembered things better when we did lapbooks. So now I guess I will be spending the weekend coming up with lapbook ideas. Just wondering if anyone else has done this for HS. Gloria
  10. How many of you purchase your lapbooks, how many only use free ones, and how many just make up your own from scratch? What do you look for in lapbooks? Do you just want the minibooks that your students can cut out, fill in, and glue into place? Or are you looking for more of a study guide to go along with it? If you do want a study guide, how much information do you use? Would you rather have an in-depth study guide complete with lesson plans, or more of just a general guideline to follow to get the book made? Do you plan your lapbooks along with whatever you're studying at the time? Or are you more likely to plan a unit around your lapbook?
  11. i have never done a lapbook before, but would like to try and give it a go with DS. THere is a civil war lap book and I thought that this might be a good plaxce to start. Unfortunately, *I*, do not know where to start. Do I print out everything from the site that interests me and have it on hand and spend one day making our lap book? Or do we do the lap book at the end of our studies on the civil war. What have you founf that works best for your family? (sorry, my brain is working faster than my fingers tonight :D)
  12. I need a suggestion, please?!?! I am trying to put together my own lapbook for studying Spanish. I've found lots of printables on www.ziggityzoom.com and www.HomeEducationResources.com. One thing I found on ziggity was a set of matching cards for numbers in Spanish. They are about 1 inch square and there are 3 per number. One has the number, one has the word in English, and the other is the word in Spanish. Does anyone have an idea how I could put these in a mini-book? There are numbers 1 through 10, so 30 little cards. I'm still new to this whole thing. I can't think what would be the best format. Thanks for any help! Amy
  13. What resources would you recommend for mini-book folding ideas? We have and use Dinah Zike's Big Book of Books. Any other recommendations? We're enjoying lapbooking with TOG2, but we really prefer to make our own mini-booklets, rather than using pre-printed kits. Actually, for TOG2, unit 1, we bought the kit and have used part of it and replaced some with topics that are more interesting for my ds. With my 6th grader, we went out on a limb and have created the whole thing from scratch! It's been a wonderful experience! So, any recommendations for more mini-book folding ideas?
  14. I have not decided which book/books I am using next year for my 2 kids. My younger one is a very good artist and very good reader. I would love to have her draw her own, maps, timelines, and maybe copy portraits or paintings.. We will be studying American history next year. I just know that something she could basically do on her home and draw with would make her happy... Has anyone done a history notebook thing with art for American history.. How did you organize it.. what did you use.. There used to be a company that sold history notebooks.. was it homeschool in the woods? to go with the time period.. thanks for any suggestions..
