Lapbooking July Lesson


Whew! I don’t know about you, but I have had a very busy month! My two youngest graduated homeschool this month (very proud mama here) and I have had a plate full of hustle and bustle.  So, for the sake of my sanity, I have brought you a short, sweet, and simple lapbook study this time. It’s geared for your 1st – 3rd graders and can be completed in just a few days.

Centered around the well-loved fable, The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse, this lapbook brings with it the opportunity to slip in some critical thinking skills in a fun way. In fact, your kids may not even realize they’re learning!

Kimm BellottoKimm Bellotto and Niki McNeil met through an online homeschool group. While chatting, they discovered they both loved lapbooks and were looking for an easier way for homeschooling moms to pull together the necessary items for a lapbook. Those chats soon became a business plan, and the two ladies quietly “set-up shop” on the web, becoming the first company to sell ready-to-use lapbook kits. With Niki’s innovative ideas and Kimm’s creative graphics abilities, the two moms published their first unit, titled “Plants,” in November 2002. Two years later, talented writer/researcher Katie Kubesh joined the team and the company came into full bloom.  In the Hands of a Child wants to make hands-on learning easy and readily attainable for every child and for every mom!  With over 400 lapbook titles to choose from and a growing line of notebooking units, they offer something for everyone regardless of age or ability.
