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 specially-folded 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!
Why choose A Journey Through Learning?
What sets us apart from the others is our sensible, user-friendly layout. All the instructions for cut-out, assembly and placement of the mini-booklet are all on one sheet together WITH the mini-booklet itself. Other lapbooking companies put instructions, assembly, and placement in different areas of the lapbook kit, which causes a lot of confusion and having to flip back and forth between pages to do the lapbook. It's the #1 source of frustration among lapbooking families, however we have conquered that problem!
What is a Curriculum Lapbook?
Have you chosen a home school program for your child and want a supplement to enhance learning or make it fun and hands-on? We have created various supplements for some of the leading home school programs that homeschooling moms choose! Our supplements range from lapbooks to binder-builders and even a bit of notebooking. We have supplements for Jay Wile's Science books, Jeannie Fulbright/Apologia, Classical Conversations, TruthQuest, Geography Matters, A History of Us, Diana Waring History Revealed, Maestro Classics and others!
What is a Stand-Alone Lapbook?
Unlike our Curriculum Lapbooks, Stand-Alone Topical Lapbooks need NO special curriculum to use. They are topical unit studies done in file folders. They have their own multi-page study guide that provides all the information about the topic so that you, the busy mom, do not have to seek out the information from the library, internet, or other sources.
What is a Binder-Builder?
A Binder-Builder is created with 3-ring binder and sheets of cardstock. The lapbook mini-booklets are glued onto the cardstock and the cardstock is then hole-punched and put into a 3-ring binder. This is useful for those who do not like to work with file folders. Many times, our Binder-Builders also contain notebooking and copywork pages, maps, book lists, etc. to also hole-punch and put into the binder.
What do I do if I lose my downloads? If you have an account with us, login to that and all of your purchases can be found there. Also, your downloads will have been emailed to you at the time of purchase, so check your email, too. If you still need help, then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long does it take to complete a lapbook? It depends on the lapbook size and the student. Express lapbooks are 1 folder and can be done in 1 or 2 days. Our 2 folder lapbooks take about 2-3 weeks. Our 3 folder lapbooks take about 3-4 weeks. These times are a loose guideline and greatly depend on age and ability of the student, how much of the lapbook is done at each sitting and how many days a week lapbook is worked on.
What is the difference between an Instant Download, a CD, and Printed.
An Instant Download is a PDF that you will get instantly once payment is received. You print it yourself. You will need Adobe Reader installed on your computer to open up the files. Acrobat Reader is free.
A CD is a PDF burned to a CD and mailed to you. You print it yourself.
Printed means we print the lapbook for you and mail it to you for your child to work through, cut out, and assemble.
Can I use your products in a group setting? Yes, but we do have copyright restrictions. We believe our licensing is very reasonable. Click HERE to see our pricing.
