I LOVE this resource a thousand times over! Homeschool Share is a wonderful site for those of you who love unit studies. This year we’ll be doing a whole lot more of those with my 4 1/2 year old. My 10 year old daughter is also really into lapbooking so I think Homeschool Share will be much-visited by our family.
Resources are organized by level, subjects/themes, and type (lapbooks are also an option). If you use Five In A Row, you’re in for a treat: there is a whole section dedicated to FIAR resources.
If you’re planning to use the unit study approach this year, and your kids are just begging to study one particular topic (butterflies or presidents, for example), then check out Homeschool Share for free lapbooking and unit study resources. Sometimes these themes are literature-based, such as the “Story Studies and Book Bites” section. We’ve used that section a bit when my oldest daughter studied the American Girls series a few years back. Mini books, lapbooking templates, as well as book purchase links are all available in this section. Have fun!
