homeschool is going GREAT!

Much better than I'd anticipated. David is loving it and flourishing! We're working on second grade material and have been able to branch out and try new things. One of which I have now just fallen all kinds of in love with. Lapbooking. Such a cool idea! Whoever thought of it, I am so thankful for you! We are studying Easter after the holiday because we took some time off when my brother was in town. But David doesn't mind so I don't mind. Today we created his lapbook for his study on the book, "The Legend of The Easter Egg". He loves it! He cut and pasted all the pieces while I read him the instructions. This week we will go through the book and learn about it piece by piece so that by the end of the week he will have learned science, math, language arts, history, reading, spelling, and art from this one little book! So cool. Anyway, here are some pics from today.

OH! By the way, if you would like to get your hands on some free lapbook ideas and printouts click here and you will find everything you could imagine! This is where I got the templates and printables for the Easter lapbook.
