I have been homeschooling for a long time.  But the past two weeks is the first time that I have tried lapbooks.  My girls and I are loving them.  We have been focusing on Thanksgiving lapbooks that we purchased from here.  We are planning on doing some Christmas-y ones too.  We decided that we needed something fresh so we have continued with our Math lessons but other than that this month has been all about lapbooks.  It has been loads of fun!  If you need to freshen up your curriculum a bit, I highly recommend them!
