ABC’s of Notebooking and Lapbooking

Whether you’re new to notebooking and lapbooking or have been using them for years, it’s nice to see others ideas and perspectives on how they approach these great learning tools.

With that said, I’m putting together a list of MY ABC’s of Notebooking and Lapbooking and will, over time, add posts to go along with my list. We all do things differently and there is no right or wrong way to approach these methods. Below are things we’ve added to or additional methods we’ve used to go along with our notebooks and lapbooks over the years. I hope some of the things listed below will be helpful to you as well as the posts I’m working to add to my blog.

My kids are older now (4 graduated and 2 I still homeschool who are 13 and 16) and we mostly use electronic notebooking (which is on the list) but we’ve been notebooking for about 7 years now. Sadly, all of their early work was destroyed in a house fire, but I do have some from the last couple years that I’ll be sharing. I’ve been terrible about adding what we do in our homeschool and I’d like to change that – hence this list to give me some direction :)


I don’t have a word for each letter yet, but at some point I hope to have more added. Be that as it may, other letters will have several words and I’ll be adding more as they come to mind.
