Homeschool High School Record Keeping- FREE Webinar Training

The HomeScholar

The HomeScholar

Homeschool High School Record Keeping – Free Webinar to teach parents more about creating a homeschool transcript that will go the distance.

Confused about how to keep high school records and create transcripts in your homeschool‬, for college admission? Investing now in your transcripts and comprehensive records could save your family BIG BUCKS later.

Lee Binz, The ‪Lee Binz – The‎HomeScholar‬ saved over $184,000 when her two boys earned their full-tuition scholarships. Learn how they did it and, more importantly, how YOUR family can do it, too!

Register for the free Homeschool Parent’s Guide to High School Grades, Credits and Transcripts webinar hosted by A Journey Through Learning – on Thursday, May 14th at 5pm (PST) now at http://ow.ly/LYWBj.

A note from Lee:

I’m Lee Binz, TLee Binz he HomeScholar. I wrote a few days ago about how there’s still a lot of resistance from the non-homeschooling world toward the idea of homeschooling high school.  I do get a bit riled up about that, but when I get notes like this one, my anger just turns to sadness:

Lee, I am so, so, so thankful to God for you. I spent the morning becoming confused and in despair over math and science next year. I was reading a homeschool forum trying to decide what to do for science next year. Some of the moms had the idea that you HAD to do certain things or your child’s college career, not to mention life, would be ruined if you didn’t do things a certain way. I finally remembered many of your encouraging, reassuring words regarding individuality and turned off that silly forum.
~Christy

While I was very grateful to receive such beautiful encouragement, I was also sad because I realized it isn’t just outsiders who discourage parents…we homeschoolers also do it to each other…

Not much has changed in the homeschooling world in the last few years. You see, a short time ago I was in Christy’s exact situation. I was fed up, frustrated, and confused about homeschooling my kids through high school.  It seemed that discouragement was around every corner, whether it was forums, blog comments, advertisements or even just casual remarks at dinner parties. The world, it seemed, did NOT want my husband and I to continue homeschooling through high school.

But I have a stubborn streak, and such talk made me more resolute to prove the naysayers wrong. My way of dealing with this sort of challenge is to do research. And that is exactly what I did! In 2006, we graduated both of our boys after homeschooling independently for 8 years.  Far from ruining their lives, both of our sons earned full-tuition scholarships from their first choice university, which saved our family over $184,000 in tuition expenses!

My mission now as The HomeScholar is to help parents homeschool high school.  The primary way I do this is through education, which is why I am delighted that A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks has asked me to present this information exclusively to their friends.  On Thursday, May 14th, I am holding a FREE one and one-half hour instructional webinar called “A Homeschool Parent’s Guide to High School Grades, Credits and Transcripts”

You will learn all you need to know about determining high school credits and assigning homeschool grades. You will also discover an ultra-EASY, super-QUICK way to perfectly document your homeschool with a transcript that will IMPRESS and AMAZE colleges.

Whether you currently have a high school student or you are just wondering about homeschooling high school, this webinar is a MUST-SEE event!

Creating Binder Builders from Lapbooks for Older Students

Creating Binder Builders

Creating Binder Builders

Do you have older children that feel cutting and pasting is NOT for them?  Do they cringe at the thought of doing anything creative? Well, AJTL has the answer! Creating Binder Builders from lapbooks for your older children may just be the solution you are looking for.

Being creative IS needed by EVERYONE! Children learn BY doing.  Somewhere we have given the message to older kids that learning can no longer be fun.  The simple truth is, as homeschooling moms of “older” kids, sometimes we just want to get it done.

We see items like paper, glue, scraps, brads, scissors and crayons as THINGS we used in elementary teaching. In reality, these are brilliant tools that open true thinking and imagination in our kids!Binder Builders for older students

Now, I will be the first to admit that my son (13) DID NOT LIKE file folders. So, I got creative. I started creating what we now call “Binder-Builders.” By taking a 3-ring binder and filling it with colored three hole punch paper and eight tabs (labeled Maps, Notebooking, Reading Books, Reports, Research, Timeline, Vocabulary, Writing), I turned an already packed lapbook into a MEGA binder of learning!

My son was given a sheet of card stock for each booklet. The instructions were simple- cut out and glue the booklet ANYWHERE on this page. You MUST provide (on this piece of cardstock) what is being asked on the booklet. You must also fill the REST of the page with the information you have learned in the study guide.

Binder builders

 

It always amazed me how he would come up with creative ways of remembering the study guides; army men with bubble words coming out of their mouths, snakes eating the answer, answer written down the side of a mountain – But, see, the learning and being creative part was STILL there!

Binder Builders for teens

 

The next day, he took the SAME study guide and had to looked up five NEW words from the study guide. Those were placed behind the “Vocabulary Tab.” Depending on the study guide, I would assign reports, writing, research, timelines, and/or require extra reading. All of these were then added behind the tabs. Now, I had taken a very informative lapbook and with a little imagination created a complete curriculum portfolio for my older child.

I pray that these simple changes will help you to see that kids are NEVER too old for paper and glue!

Benefit of Lapbooks: Great for Special Needs Homeschooling

Many Benefits of Lapbooking

Many Benefits of Lapbooking

 

 Special Needs Homeschooling

While the benefits of lapbooks are many – using them for special needs homeschooling is a major benefit that stands out. You don’t need to be crafty or artistic to enjoy lapbooking, and anyone can do it successfully!

For those who do special needs homeschooling – it can change the whole atmosphere and success level of the homeschool experience.

Lapbooking with A Journey Through Learning uses audio – as you read the material out loud, visual – with colorful graphics, and kinesthetic – hands on learning techniques.  This combination of learning techniques will ignite activity in both the left and right brain – resulting in more brain power and better homeschooling success for your special needs learners in particular.

The combination of these different learning styles plays a major role in the effectiveness of lapbooking!

Happy results with AJTL lapbooks

Enhance Homeschool

By adding a creative element to your family homeschool, you’ll be surprised at how much more fun and enjoyment the whole family will get out of it.  Assign different jobs according to the ability of each child. Have older children read aloud from the study guides or curriculum. Younger students and those who need to work on fine motor skills will benefit greatly from cutting out the mini-books for each section of the lapbook.

*Tip: On larger lapbooks – don’t get overwhelmed by trying to cut out the entire lapbook at once. Try doing one section at a time & label the backs of the mini-books with a light touch of a pencil as you go along to keep up with what goes where. Follow the simple instructions on each page and the diagram layout for the big picture.

Your students will be so proud of their finished product and will look forward to showing it off to parents and grandparents alike!

Improve Retention

As mentioned above, lapbooking with AJTL uses all three of the main learning techniques in the educational process. As children hear, see, and interact with the material – they are using both the left and right sides of their brain which results in more brain power and better success in homeschooling.

Ultimately, kids have better retention levels because they have heard it, seen it, and interacted with it. It works!

Moms Say AJTL Lapbooks are Easy to Use

What moms are saying . . .

What moms are saying . . .

 

We love hearing from our customers about how A Journey Through Learning products are enhancing their homeschool.

AJTL lapbooks are easy to use!

One of the key features of our lapbooks is the easy to use format. Each page is numbered so that – even if you were to drop the entire stack of pages . . . they could easily be put back in order. Additionally, there are pictures to show you how to lay out the mini-booklets, and each mini-book is explained in full within the study guides that accompany the stand alone lapbooks.

A first time homeschool mom and first time lapbooker said,

I just wanted you to know how much I love your lapbooks! This is my first year homeschooling my three children, and our first experience using lapbooks.

Of the lapbooks I have seen, these are by far superior.

Even when I can get some products for free, I would still prefer to purchase A Journey Through Learning.

They are easy to follow, have clear instructions and great curriculum matter.

~Lucinda Douglas – a homeschool mom

We LOVE to hear that Lucinda! Thank you for sharing!

Producing curriculum that holds valuable information, is relevant to students ages, and is easy to use – are just a few of our main goals at AJTL.

Lapbooking will add a layer of creativity to your studies (even if you are not a “crafty” or “artistic” person) and will help your students not only learn to pull out the most relevant information, but also will help them retain what they learn.

When they are finished with each lapbook or unit study project – they will have something to be proud of, and a terrific review tool!

We’ve been asking questions – because we want to know what moms say about AJTL lapbooking and how it helps their children learn. Martina Bump is a homeschool mom, like you, and she had these things to say about our lapbooks . . .

 

“My children and I love A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks and study guides!!!

We have done several of them and my girls retain more by being able to write,cut and glue and put together a lapbook that is fun and engaging to look at over and over again.

With your student wanting to go back and look at what they have created over and over they are reenforcing what you have taught them.In addition to it being fun it works on fine motor skills such as cutting ,writing and also on following step by step directions.

Happy results with AJTL lapbooks

Upon finishing one of the lapbooks my daughter took it to show her speech and OT therapist and they were very impressed by what she had accomplished and how much she had retained from schooling with the lapbook. The therapist agreed that this was the PERFECT fit for my struggling learners.

The strides they have made in school since doing

lapbooks from A Journey Through Learning have been amazing!!!

What a wonderful testimony of homeschooling it has been to their therapist. Some who were not for homeschooling have been in favor of my homeschooling as a result.

Thank you Paula for taking the time and helping out an overwhelmed mom, a few years ago . It has been a tremendous blessing.”
