Loving Lapbooking

I recently stumbled into "lapbooking" - I actually ran across it while researching Tapestry of Grace, but then rediscovered it after visiting a recommended website from another home schooling mom. To be honest I don't really know how to describe lapbooking except to say it's a way to turn a unit-study type lesson into a hands-on method of reporting and reviewing what you learned. Primarily people use a file folder and re-fold it into a tri-fold, pasting memorabilia, notes, and things you've made inside.

Treyton and I are starting with lapbooking with a study on the book "Are you my mother?" I got a few of my ideas off of www.homeschoolshare.com but I came up with several on my own. I won't go into it all here but if you are interested I recommend that you visit the above website.

I plan on taking pictures of our finished lapbook this week and posting it. But wanted to get you started with this.
