Need a last minute gift idea???
Do you like to bake cookies? How about a coupon booklet that gives the bearer a dozen cookies each month?
Do you (or the kids) draw? How about a coupon booklet that gives the bearer a drawing each month?
My dear friend Ami, from HomeSchoolShare.com, has such a knack for putting together cool lapbook and notebook components has come up with a couple of great gift ideas to get those hard to buy for folks on your list. All you need to do is print them off and collate them and wrap 'em up. What a fun idea!!!
You will Adobe Reader to access the PDF files, but you can download it for free on the Adobe site.

Enjoy! And if you like or have thought about doing unit studies, be sure to check out Home School Share! There are over 200 literature-based unit studies, many of them with lapbooks or notebooking pages, and the best part is that they are all free! There are also many FIAR (Five in a Row) resources and lapbook templates available (also free!).
Recently, Ami started a new section on the website....Animal Studies. In this section, Ami has created lapbooks for a particular animal. They can be used alone to learn about a new animal, or be added to any existing science program you are using. Again, they are free.
If you've been thinking about doing unit studies or lapbooking, what are you waiting for? Give HSS a try! You have nothing to lose and you just might find a whole new way of doing school that's fun for everyone!
And if you've never heard of Five a Row, you gotta try it! It's inexpensive and you get a whole lot of curriculum, fun, and priceless moments with your kids!
