I started tonight to get ready for our first lap book.  We selected Oregon since we've just moved here.  I have had so much fun getting all the papers ready and we haven't even done anything yet!

Oh yes!  I had a subscription - when my child was younger he really liked the lap books. 

I recc. them.   
Also, the way they make their materials is fairly secular, but they do add Christian material in here and there, but it is the kind of Christian material I don't think anyone could or would argue over, I would describe it more as the wisdom of the religion and not the dogma.

So for us, these materials were very welcome and very helpful.  :

We especially liked the BEE lapbook.

This was just the ticket for us - I'm so glad I saw this posting.  :-)  I just ordered the Thomas Edison package today - actually it was FREE.  Went to the store picked up some colorful paper and file folders and voila - we're set for a project this week.

We haven't been doing much crafting or documenting on our homeschool journey.  I believe these lap books will serve both purposes well in addition to having the knowledge from the unit studies themselves. 

Thanks!
