Christmas is over.....now what?
don't know about you, but this is the time of year (winter) when I
start to get bored and burned out with our curriculum and homeschooling in general. Of course we
can't go buy all new just because of this reason, but I have found a way
to 'spice' things up. Lapbooking & unit studies are a great way to
get rid of the 'winter homeschool blues'. Currclick.com is a great
website to get lapbooks. Most are very inexpensive...some as low as $1.00 or $0.50! You
download, print and you're ready. The basics things needed for lapbooking you'll need is a pencil, paper, manilla folders (colored or plain), glue,
crayons or markers, etc. - basic supplies.
