It’s that time of year…Back to School-we are stocking up on supplies, finishing our lesson plans, finding a few gaps, and trying to keep up with it all.

A Journey Through Learning is busy starting this new blog.  Here we will be discussing great lapbooking tips, our favorite lapbook supplies, sales and promotions, and so much more.

So what exactly is a lapbook? Glad you asked! A lapbook is a FUN, HANDS-ON and CREATIVE way for your child to record information that he/she has learned about a certain subject. First, you create the folder part of your lapbook. This part is made from colored folders that are folded in a special way and glued together. Mini-booklets are then cut out, constructed and glued inside of the folders. Children write their information inside the fun mini-booklets. Beats boring worksheets hands down!

We have lapbooks for Apologia/Jeannie Fulbright science, TruthQuest history, Maestro Classics, and more!

A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks goes the extra mile to make your lapbooking experience better than ever for you AND your student. Why?
*First and foremost-MOST of A Journey Through Learning’s lapbooks come with a study guide. No need to search out the answers yourself!
*A Journey Through Learning’s lapbooks are colorful.
*A Journey Through Learning’s lapbook prices beat out many competitors!
*A Journey Through Learning gives you step by step instructions on how to fold and glue your folders to make the “spine” of your lapbook.
*A Journey Through Learning gives you step by step directions AND a shape-coded chart on where to place your mini-booklets within each folder.
*A Journey Through Learning’s 3-folder lapbook takes about one month to complete. However, you can expand the study portion and make it last as long as you want. That’s the beauty of homeschooling. Do it YOUR way!

Why use lapbooks? Because learning doesn’t have to be boring! Why do lapbooks work? Because kids don’t realize they’re educational. Lapbooks work well for reluctant writers and learners, too!

    Already a subscriber to your newsletter, but joined your new blog. We’ve used some lapbooking in the Christian school where I work, and hope to see more in the future. I think the Galloping the Globe book looks like it would be so much fun. Lots of neat choices and great previews with your sample pages. Keep up the great work!
