We have concluded our Civil War study. The kids will be assembling their lapbooks on Friday.  I’ll try to post pictures soon.  I have been looking at lots of other lapbooks on blogs and there are some really super ones out there.  It is very inspiring.  I have noticed that a lot of people who make lapbooks are using unit studies and we’re not.  The concept is intriguing.  I can’t quite wrap my brain around it completely though.  I do know that something has got to change, The kids just can’t learn all the material I’m trying to cram in. I never wanted to be a school-at-home sort of family and though we don’t have a school room with desks, etc. I think our school has turned very much into school-at-home. We have x number of subjects that we have to get through and they aren’t connected.  Not that there’s anything wrong with school at home, I just think that we’re missing so many opportunities to really enjoy learning and dig deeper into topics of interest.  Well, enough of my rambling for now.
