Okay, so we have finished rowing our first week (and a half) of The Story About Ping. After first going through the suggestions made in Five in a Row I was ready to get off to a running start. Since I am planning on doing lapbooks with each of the stories that we row I knew that I would need a little guidance to get started. I found loads of information on HomeschoolShare.com. The folks at HSS have very generously put together tons of wonderful information based off of the same literature based model as FIAR, as well as some Unit studies. I spent quite a bit of time poking around here since they have a section dedicated to FIAR supplements – perfect for lapbooking. This was also where I learned about a couple of other wonderful websites.
Enchantedlearning.com requires a 20 dollar per year membership to access most of their resources, but I consider it money well-spent. They have a great selection of crafts, worksheets, graphics, facts, and coloring pages to supplement whatever you may be studying at the moment.
HandsofaChild.com is an excellent resource, especially for those new to lapbooking and unit studies. They offer downloadable Project Packs as well as those that are in a printed format. They have already done a lot of your work for you by gathering graphics and consolidating questions for you to review with your little one. I just love all of the movable graphics that were available to use in the Story About Ping Project Pack!
Tomorrow I will post about our first week of rowing the Story About Ping and hopefully some pictures too!
