Bringing Life to the Bible with a Book –  Imagine. . .The Great Flood by Matt Koceich Review

Looking Closer at the Great Inventors with the A Journey Through Learning – Review

Looking Closer at the Great Inventors with the A Journey Through Learning – Review

We’ve been taking learning a step further with lapbooks lately. It’s been a good way for my older two kiddos (8 and 7) to learn to do research and find the facts. While lapbooking is not a normal thing for our Charlotte Mason environment, I don’t mind adding in a bit of research when they are having fun doing it as well.

We’ve listened to many of their audiobooks so the kids and I were excited to listen to their newest addition In the Reign of Terror.
