We are new to home schooling and am constantly looking for ways to make learning fun for our kids, especially Conner. I found this wonderful method of learning called Lapbooks!
It's inexpensive and fun! Conner's fine motor skills suffer, due to his SID, so that art work helps him too.
We have done three lapbooks so far - China, Human Body and Soccer. Soccer was of course his favorite. Below are some photos of his work! He really had fun coming up with questions to research, finding the answers, and putting it all together - he is even proud of his mosaic picture! (Mrs. Smith, I hope you are proud of him - you know you are still his favorite Art teacher!)
Presently, he is working on a Lapbook about Sensory Integration Disorder. He is really enjoying this as he is also learning about himself! After researching activities that help a person with SID or SPD he asked if we could go to the park, because he felt like he needed to swing! This is a huge accomplish for Conner! So, we went after school and all the kids had fun! I think we all needed a little swing time! :)
Conner is using his Human Body lapbook as another material of reference for his SID book. It's great to see him make the connection!
We are doing a study on weather and when we are through the study we will make another lapbook as a review to the study! This is sooo much better for Conner then testing. :)
Jailyn loves her "home school" time too! Here are some photos of Jorja and Jailyn making their art work too! They loved cutting and gluing!
