How to Start Using Lapbooks

When I first tried lapbooks, I purchased a kit from another company, it is still setting on the shelf unused.


Because it was overwhelming as soon as I opened it up.  There was page after page after page of extensive directions, that really didn’t explain anything.  They were confusing and had very few pictures to show you what to do.

It was several years before I tried lapbooking again.

And then I found A Journey Through Learning, the rest is really history.  Well, not really, but seriously, to get started, you do seem to need a few step by step instructions to get going.

Making sure you have the basic supplies on hand to lapbook will help a lot.

  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Pens
  • Crayons
  • Tape
  • File folders

I also purchased a couple of books to help me get started.  However, for me the biggest help was just pushing through that first project.  It was pretty, I am not sure my children learned a lot, but I learned the basics well enough to want to try again.
