Our Homeschool Scrapbook
Our latest idea is to make a scapbook of our homeschool days.
Our plan is to make a two page spread on a monthly basis, recording that months activities, achievements, days out etc. Scrapbooking is an existing, if not neglected hobby for us, so we already have a lot of supplies to make our scapbooking fun & creative.
I plan to be organised (!) & order a set of photo's on a month by month basis from Snapfish. Then, at the end of the month, the girls can make up their pages for that month. I am hoping to see lots of benefits for this idea:
We can incorporate narration naturally as they discuss what they have been learning about that particular month.
They can narrate to me, I will type their words & use as copywork. This journaling can be added to the page in the form of mini books & journaling boxes.
A Record of Achievement
A simple way to view the learning & interests of our girls.
Putting this book together is an act of creativity in itself!
A Treasured Keepsake
What a blessing this book will be to look back on for B & I as parents & for the girls themselves as they grow! I intend to re-read The Gift of Family Writing as inspiration.
