I’m looking for ways to help M gather and process some of the information we’re learning particularly in our science studies. I like the idea of making a science notebook and I’ve read a lot about lapbooking and notebooking but I’m not sure what would work best for us.
M hasn’t been interested in any of the lapbooking activities I’ve tried. She doesn’t like having to cut or color things just for the sake of doing it to put in a book. I think that feels too much like busy work for her. And I don’t want to put myself in the position of commanding her to color a picture just so we can put it in a notebook. I want to compile our work but I want it to feel reasonably natural.
I’m hoping that some of you will be willing to share how you process the things you’ve read or learned. Do you make notebooks? If so, any suggestions for keeping it fun and not like a chore?
