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!
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!
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!
We have many products to go along with your favorite curriculum and plenty of stand-alone choices as well!
