Review- A Journey Through Learning (TOS Review)
We had the opportunity to take a look at a few of A Journey Through Learning’s lapbooks. We decided to complete the Knights and Castles lapbook since my son has been interested in castles recently.
Each lapbook packet comes with easy to understand instructions. There are also video tutorials on How To Lapbook on their website.
The entire lapbook can be completed in about a month, if you do one piece a day. It is designed for 2nd-7th grades, though technically my son is in 1st. Older children could quite easily complete this lapbook on their own. My son and I did it together, I would read to him the study guide, while he cut out the pieces and placed them on the folders. We took turns with writing in the booklets.
There is religious reference in this unit, so it may not fit a secular homeschooling curriculum.
My son is on the fence about lapbooks, but he really enjoyed doing this one!
Lapbooks are available as instant downloads, CD format or preprinted. An instant download of the Knights and Castles costs for $13.00. A Journey Through Learning has a wide variety of lapbooks to choose from, many correspond with curriculums such as Classical Conversations, Apologia and more. Their prices range from $1+.
Other lapbooks we looked at and are looking forward to completing in the future are The Earth, Astronomy and Space and for my 4 year old Letters, Numbers and Shapes.
