Cycle 2 Memory Work Lapbooks Review and Giveaway
UPDATE: Congrats to Ina Daniels Patton, winner of the lapbook giveaway! Ina has been contacted via email. Thanks to everyone who visited & entered!
Karen from Wisdom and Righteousness contacted me with a chance to review the My Memory Work Lapbooks she created to complement Classical Conversations Cycle 2. I was excited to take a look and share about them with all of you! There are 4 lapbooks full of cycle 2 memory work, each 6 week sections. Karen provides clear, detailed instructions on how to print and assemble the lapbooks, including an option to make a "binder-book" instead of a lapbook. I decided to pursue the "binder-book" option for our family using a 3-ring binder and pocket dividers as Karen suggested. The pocket dividers are helpful for holding all the bits waiting for assembly.
I've printed and assembled the first 6 weeks. My printer does not like cardstock, so I printed on copy paper and glued them to cardstock for sturdiness. This is our family's first serious try with lapbooks, so I'd like to test the waters for a while once our CC year starts before I print the remaining weeks.
Here's what I already know I like:
1. The lapbooks are visually appealing, using full color relevant images and a variety of paper folds.
2. The lapbooks stick strictly to the memory work and employ classical methods of tracing and copy work to aid in memorization.
I suspect my oldest will enjoy mixing up his daily memory work review by using these lapbooks. I'll update you on how we're using it throughout the year. In the meantime, enter here to win your own copy of all 4 lapbooks for a complete set of My Memory Work Lapbooks for Cycle 2.
Also, if you have a moment, check out Karen's thoughts on having a "one-piece life." I found it so uplifting.
