In the Hands of a Child

This is a company that publishes lapbook materials on a wide variety of subjects. They are also available in printed and ebook format (including a "type it in" option, which my son loved since he didn't have to write!) You can even purchase a kit w/ the foldables already printed on colored paper.

A note about religious content: The writers/publishers are Christian, and they have a line of Bible study lapbooks. But I was never bothered by any religious content in the history/science units I purchased from them.

These are also available through the CurrClick website.

Michael Clay Thompson Language Arts

These were my favorite of all the Language Arts materials I ever used. There are component books for grammar, vocabulary, writing, poetry and literature which can be used alone or in combination. The writing is excellent and the whole program fosters a love of language in students. It even makes grammar study fun!

They are recommended to begin at grade 3, but some students may be ready to start them earlier.
