I am often asked – “How do you do it all?”
This question generally puzzles me because I don’t do it all…and I share (pretty openly) that I don’t do it all.
I do not clean all of my house or do all of the laundry (my children have chores that they have to do daily like cleaning the kitchen and washing/folding all of our clothes), I don’t cook all of the time (I am blessed that my husband loves cooking and he generally cooks on the weekends) and while I am in love with notebooking/lapbooking, I don’t always have time to do a lot of searching (or time for creating) the resources we enjoy.
That’s where I depend upon companies who help me at home. Recently, I fell in love with A Journey Through Learning. I have seen their products in the past, but admittedly, never used them.
However, as we move forward with our Paths of Settlement (curriculum from GeoMatters), we have had the opportunity to utilize the lapbook created for Volume 1 by A Journey Through Learning that can be used (but is not required) to enhance our children’s learning.
My children go through various phases where they enjoy lapbooking one day and notebooking another.
Utilizing products like the lapbook available from A Journey Through Learning, I am able to help keep them interested, while guiding them through what we are learning!
Using The Lapbook for a Paths of Settlement
This lapbook is very well made, is simple and the directions are very easy to use.
I don’t know about you, but I find it frustrating when I spend money on a product and it is difficult and directions are not clear (this frustration is usually accompanied by furniture I have to put together, but that’s another story)
If I am going to invest my time, money and children’s efforts into something….it needs to fit all of those requirements for our home!
