I’ve been fiddling with the set up here. The biggest change is that I’ve taken off my “box” where I kept things for download. I didn’t like how you couldn’t see the names of the files. Anyway, there are some files you can download right off the site and you can find them by clicking on the Free Stuff! page. I will always put new lapbooks there for a while so anyone who wants can get them without joining the group.
The full list of the files that can be download at the Simply Lapbooks Yahoo Group can be found by clicking on the Simply Lapbooks page button along the top of this page. I don’t have detailed descriptions up of those files yet. You can search the blog to see pictures of the ones we’ve done so far. (We haven’t done the country ones yet.)
And I also managed to add a “fan” button for my facebook fan page for the novel I have written. If you are on facebook, please be my fan 🙂 I have gotten some test readers and have gotten in some reviews and am waiting on a bunch more. And waiting…
I realized I don’t have any college students reading the novel yet. If you know a Christian college student who enjoys reading, maybe you can put us in touch. I can email a pdf version of the book to them if they are willing to write me a “blurb” to use in advertising the book. I’m trying to get male and female reviewers from teens up through retirees.
You can read more about the book (and even the first chapter) at the book’s blog http://thekingwillmakeaway.wordpress.com. You can also read about how the book came about. Do you guys use Homeschool Freebie of the Day? Do you remember the one “How to teach your 7 to 9 year olds to write a novel?” The book actually developed from me doing those lessons with my kids, not out of any aspiration or plan on my part.
There are two new posts below so keep on reading…
