What’s Up Wednesday? Lapbooking!

Have you discovered Lapbooking?

Do you know what it is?

I didn’t until a few weeks ago. I’d never heard the term, but the more I was looking into premade home organization templates & forms to build my Homekeeper Notebook, the more I saw the term.

Being nosy – I checked into it more. And LOVE what I’ve found.

Lapbooking is essentially an easy way to introduce or implement teaching at home and keep a record of important learning – a portfolio of memories. Not just for homeschoolers, although that is where I’ve found the bulk of my information, it is a format which allows for teaching any child at home on just about any subject – whether scholarly or spiritual. Not only is it a way for parents to teach their children on any subject or topic, it is designed to become a keepsake and momento of your child’s learning. Continue reading “What’s Up Wednesday?

Woot! Woot! Wednesday

Still fighting the sickies, I’ve not had as much time on the computer for several days as I like. But I’ve just gotta tell you about some fun things going on this week.

Bakespace – a great food-recipe-community-networking site that also happens to be giving away one Kitchenaid appliance every day in February – Woot! Woot! My mom joined this morning and already connected with a mentor for some specific kinds of recipes she’d like. You can post recipes, search recipes, connect with a mentor who specializes in a certain type of recipe or cooking, create your own “kitchen” and more. They even have recipes for bath & body, home care, & pets. It’s all free – and when you upload a recipe or an invited friend joins, you’re entered in the drawing for the free appliance. Come for the food. Stay for the conversation… Continue reading “Woot! Woot! Wednesday”

Bible Coloring Pages at ABC Home Preschool

So I visited ABC Home Preschool this morning to check out their homeschool curriculum for PreK. I’m actually looking for something I can do at home with Curly to support what she’s learning at Mommy’s Day Out. I want to be more consistent in helping her REMEMBER what she learns, and the ABC cards we’ve used before have all been destroyed or lost in the black hole of our house. We review her Bible verses, but I want more tools so I can have some one-on-one time with her doing something fun, creative, and educational in addition to that!
