Special Needs Homeschooling
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!
