Lapbooking! Its the current rage! Many children learn subject matter best using their hands. A Journey Through Learning has lapbooks for all subjects, including Bible, history, science, and preschool. They also have lapbooks that supplement many popular homeschooling programs, such as Jeannie Fulbright/Apologia Science, TruthQuest History, Geography Matters, Maestro Classics, A History of Us, and more. Nancy Fileccia, co-owner of A Journey Through Learning, shows you not only how to make a lapbook, but also how lapbooking can spark laughter and a hunger for learning in your schooling. She will also show how to use lapbooks with an assortment of top homeschooling programs. (This was originally presented as a vendor workshop, but the principles and ideas are helpful no matter how you get your lapbooks!)
Lets face itmost people dont like science. Why is that? Its likely because of how science was taught to them as children. In this talk, which is based on years of research, data, and experience, Jeannie Fulbright shares her understanding of how science should be taught to elementary students. You will learn the keys to successfully building a solid foundation of science education with tips, ideas, and examples for making science come to life for both parents and students.
“Tell me, and I will forget; show me, and I may remember; involve me, and I will understand.” When children create something from their learning, they will remember what they learned far longer than if they completed a worksheet page about it. This workshop explains why and how to give kids an easy, effective approach that replaces workbooks, enhances learning and retention of the subject, and develops a true love for learning. Jeannie Fulbright shares tips and actual demonstrations for replacing workbook assignments with creative ideas for science, history, geography, literature, and more. Examples and visual aids make the information easy to understand and implement in your homeschool.
