A New Curriculum for K-2nd from Homeschool in the Woods!

I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review.  I have also been compensated for my time.  You can read my entire disclosure page here.

Alright, you all know how much I adore Homeschool in the Woods!  Their curricula are hands-on, which we love around here, and they are BEAUTIFUL!!  I have tried using some of their studies with my kiddos over the last couple of years and while we enjoyed them immensely we did have to tailor them a bit to fit my children’s ages and I always secretly hoped that the good people at Homeschool in the Woods would turn out something for the younger set.

Homeschool in the Woods Lap-Paks

Well, imagine my excitement when Homeschool in the Woods contacted me to let me know that not only were they coming out with something entirely new but they were also gearing it towards the K-2nd grade range!!  Woohoo!  Better yet the two, brand new Lap-Paks that they were releasing were on Benjamin Franklin and Knights!  Roman (my 8 year old who just wrapped up 2nd grade) has been begging to learn about knights for… well, for years now, but it just never fit into our plan.  Well, this kid (who normally loathes anything school-related) didn’t bat an eyelash when I told him that he was going to be doing some school over the summer but it would be all about Knights!  In fact, he jumped up and down exclaiming, “YES!!!”

More Reasons I am so Excited about Lap-Paks!

The things that most excite me about this new series, besides the target-age group, are:

  • They have full accompanying Audio of the included learning booklet (we are using audios more and more these days around the Bold house)
  • The topics covered are interesting and, though simplified, still very informative
  • The lapbooking components are exquisite (as always) so even the youngest student can turn out a beautiful finished product
  • The lessons require little to no prep on my part (just print and go!  Perfect for summer!)
  • They come in both CD and download format (perfect for new Mac users who no longer have CD-drives)

We can’t wait to dive into this study this coming week!  You can be sure that you will be seeing lots of updates on my social media channels, so keep your eyes open!  And when we’ve finished up this unit I will be posting a full review with video and a giveaway, so make sure you are subscribed to the blog so you don’t miss a thing!!

In the mean time you can hop over to their Lap-Paks page to get even more details and purchase the Paks.  They even have a spiffy new website design that I’m sure you will want to take a peek at too!

Thank you Homeschool in the Woods!  We can’t wait to get started!
