I have pretty much decided to have Tom do lap/notebooking. (So far our homeschool year feels like a bust). He will do the booklets but we will put them on notebook pages. He's getting older and I think he is bored with the folders. This is ok. He is excited to do this. He's going to decorate the pages and maybe write more info on them.
He has done alot of chemistry booklets. Some from homeschoolshare.com and some I have been making. He has also started the Iroquois booklets from homeschoolshare.com . This is getting him ready for The French and Indian Wars. I will have to make some Algonquian indian booklets and French and British booklets.
I'm excited for this because I myself just love history. I actually learned about 'The Beaver Wars' last night while reading. We were never taught about this. We still have alot to learn.
We were also thinking about taking his Henry VIII lapbook (which is quite large and not even finished being put together), cut the booklets off the file folders and make the lap/notebooking pages.
