What is a Lapbook?
What is a lapbook? A Journey Through Learning Lapbooking can take education to a whole new level with color graphics and easy design and in-depth study.
So what exactly is a lapbook?
Think of lapbooking as educational scrapbooking for any subject you would like. Your child records information, through drawing, dictating or writing, into nifty little mini-booklets. These mini-booklets are then glued into file folders. We provide all the mini-booklet templates, topical information we call “study guides,” and all the instructions!
When complete, your child will have something to show Dad, grandparents, and friends. Every time your child shows and explains the contents in his lapbook, he will be continuing to learn the information within it and not even realize it! Lapbooks are motivating for the reluctant learner. Beats boring worksheets hands down!
You can’t get any easier with lapbooking than A Journey Through Learning! We don’t just say it’s easy-we really mean it! Ours are!
Yes, anyone can do lapbooking! But not all lapbooking kits are created the same. Some are harder than others to figure out.
Most lapbook kits are designed so that you have all the instructions together in one place, then all the booklet templates in one place, and then all the topic information together in one place. and so on. Users tell us they feel confused by this format and their children get frustrated trying to find what they need.
Our lapbooks put a STOP to all the shuffling through paper. Users literally go page by page to do our lapbooks.
Lapbook users agree that A Journey Through Learning’s lapbooks are by far the best designed on the market.
How are our lapbooks designed? You may click the image for bigger view.
Study Guide Page On the left, notice the FULL PAGE of information, not just a paragraph like you see in other lapbooks.
Template Page On the right is everything else you will need to do your lapbook. Here you will find the booklet template, assembly instructions for the booklet, and in the corner we show you where to place it in the file folder.
This is a unique format created by A Journey Through Learning. No one else creates lapbooks that are page by page, COLOR GRAPHICS, and a full page information pages!
So STOP buying lapbooks that are full of “busywork” shuffling through paper, have boring black & white graphics, and provide only a small paragraph of information.
Our design is an breath of relief for lapbook pros, and also gives nervous newbies the courage to jump right in.
