    This is interesting. I’ve been using File Folders with my younger ones, but this is a neat way to incorporate it with my 4th grader. Thank you!!! I’d love to see more samples and tutorials on this!!! <3

  2. Thank you! I’ve been wondering how to do this. I’d like to see an example of how to do a lap book using file folders too. My kids are 8 and 6 and 4 and I think that might be more their style for now.

  3. I love this version much better then the file folder one! Making the lapbook into a notebook is much easier to store and share for us.

  4. Wow – that looks like a lot of fun! Was there some sort of guide used to decide what components to add?

  5. I have a tutorial on my blog http://outsidetheboxhomeschooling.com/?p=26 to show you how to make them the easy way with file folders. Allot of the websites give instructions that can be confusing. We lapbook ALLOT, so I kind of have putting them together down to a science. Once you get the hang of it they are quick to put together.

  6. Thank you for sharing this. I have been wanting to try lapbooking. Every place we look seems everyone loves this. You have beautifully presented this in a simple and informative way! I can’t wait to get started!

  7. wow. we just started on the lapbooks…we’re enjoying it but this seems easier to store.thanks

  8. We are just starting some lapbooking with my 6 and 7 year old. May get my 4 year old in when I know what I’m doing better.

    But, I love this concept. This way, we can keep all of our lapbooks in a binder and keep them all together.

  9. Thank you sooo much. I found the idea of lapbooking on Pintrest and found the ideas to be amazing. I had been looking for the foldables and couldn’t find them anywhere. Thank you for sharing your expertise and knowledge; as well as your templates.
    Sincerly,
    Tina

  10. This is great! I like doing the file folders with my kids, but this is something to keep in mind as they grow older and I want them to record more information. Thanks!

  11. its give me an idea how to make my lapbook project thanks a lot. Godbless

  12. Thank you for the lapbook information using cardstock. What a great idea!

  13. we have been doing the ancient greece lapbooks but cant find the links that it gives. how do i go to the links?

  14. This is fabulous! I’ve looked all over, hoping to find the actual, “The Music Man” lapbook download pictured here. Is there such a thing. This was too good to be true!

    Thanks,
    Chrissy

  15. I love this! So much neater and tidier than some of the other ways I’ve seen lapbooks presented. I like the way you have it on cardstock and the way you explained each step that you go through in completing the book. Well done.
