  11. This has so much I have been looking for. I am doing my own lapbook on Early American History next week and this has given me much of what I wanted and needed. Thank you for having this available. It will make homeschooling my 3rd and 5th grader so much easier.

  14. Many thanks! I printed out your blank general history page for recording our findings! We enjoy seeing your drawings on Sketch Tuesday too!


    • Thank You so much I work for a homeless shelter school is all year round and I have to find my own resources. Thank You so much I love everything on your website. My students love it as well 🙂 Thank You!


  15. Hi Nadene,
    I am very new to the world of homeschooling – trying to get organised for next year. My daughter will be entering Gr 1 and this will be our first year of homeschooling. We are both very excited and I am even more excited to have come across your blog. You have inspired me so much and given such practical ideas to follow. Love it! Which of the free pages are relevant to Grade 1? I know the focus is on English and Maths, but I’m so eager to get onto all the other ideas in your blog too. I’m not using Sonlight. I’ve bought Jolly Phonics for English and we’re using Singapore Maths. For Life Skills I’m putting together whatever I can find through free curriculums over the internet, or making it up as I go along. Also a fan of Charlotte Mason and trying to include her school of thought into our curriculum. Thanks for all you are doing!!!


    • @Home School Reminders, Welcome! I’m sure that you and your daughter are going to enjoy the most wonderful journey of life and learning together! I’m sorry that I can’t give you exact specifics of what pages are for grade 1 because they have been used and re-used by all my kids across the ages.
      I can suggest that you download the print handwriting charts and read through some practical posts for handwriting. You could pop over to the Maths pages and see what is there that will suit her.
      But all you really need for most your early schooling is some good children’s treasuries with classical children’s stories. Try find one or two with beautiful illustrations and read aloud to her. Simply ask her to “tell back” the story. Hope this helps. Blessings 🙂


      • Thanks Nadene! I have downloaded the handwriting pages and will definitely have those laminated (great idea)!!. Will have a look at the maths pages too and try get my hands on some beautifully illustrated classics. I will be visiting your blog often! Thanks once again. Lv Janis.


  16. Love the WW2 Timeline, thank you.

    Just wanted to mention that we live in Australia and noticed you didn’t list Australia in the Allies and also Singapore was not listed as occupied.
    Other than that we really love the pages you produce.


  17. Thank you so much for all of your history notebooking pages! We are using Sonlight American History this upcoming year and I think my 12 year old will enjoy combining a lapbook approach with the notebooking pages. You do beautiful work and I’m grateful! You have blessed me greatly! THANKS!!!

  24. I can’t download any of the Sonlight World History pages. It says to click the title for downloads, but it isn’t clickable. Any thoughts? 🙂


    • @Julie, click the main titles above each theme/topic and the downloads do open. The coloured highlighted words in the description are not links. (Email me if you still can’t download and I send you the files you need. 🙂 )


  25. Hi I am new to lapbooking and printed stone age but cant find the answers the website that was on the paper I went to can you help thanks Gina


    • Welcome to lapbooking Gina! I’m sure you and your kids will enjoy these activities.
      I provided some websites in the download for extra information, over and above the excellent Sonlight books which should give you all the “answers”.
      I checked the recommended sites and suggest you go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stone_Age.
      Blessings, Nadene
