who doesn't like lapbooks? I just can't get seem to get into them. I like unit studies, I just don't like the lapbook process.

    My 7 year old hates them. I am hoping teaming up on it will help. But she is really an unschooler at heart.

    I've always like the idea of lapbooks and had always planned on trying one.  Never happened.  I can't get into them either.  I am not the creative type at all.  I still like looking at other people's though.

    We never did lapbooks. It's not for everyone.

    Nothing says you HAVE to do a lapbook with unit studies.  I have boys.. We were much more inclined to do "projects" in relation to our studies because they weren't into books.  It's like the suspension bridge we built in this project: http://www.cafemom.com/group/114079/forums/read/19259834/Show_Us_How_YOU_Homeschool_WIN_a_25_Gift_Card?next=44 (Scroll down to see our bridge ;-)  We love our unit studies, but lapbooks.. Nahhhh.  Free yourself and do what comes naturally and what your kids like!  Don't feel like you HAVE to do the lapbooks.

    I love them but make them simple nothing too complicated. I prefer them all laid out. I would not want to use them all the time. I do a lapbook journal combination. They are not for everyone.

    Nope, you aren't.

    I don't do lapbooks... or unit studies. They irritate me.

    We made one about the papacy and the new pope. It almost sent me over the edge. The cutting... the coloring... the pasting... the research...

    No. Just no. Lol.

    I don't like them, but my kids do.

    I think they could be fun to do once in a while, but more often than one or two a year would be stretching it for me.

    Not a fan. They seem incredibly labor-intensive for very little learning.
