Sunday night I attended a class on lapbooking. I LOVE this concept!! Basically, it's a collection of mini books placed inside a folder, folded poster board, etc. to creat a lapbook! You make all these nifty folded mini books and place info in them. It's sorta like doing a book report on a topic without the book report part. Children retain this knowledge SO well by creating these great lapbooks. And they LOVE toshow them off!
I will get the link to the pics from the class and add it on later.*****Here's the link!! http://peterspeapod.blogspot.com/2008/12/lapbooking-workshop.html

*Look for some of our very own lapbooks coming up soon! Right now we are planning on doing a Westward Ho! one and one on Old Florida History.
Clipart!!--great to add to your lapbooks...real photos are the best though!
