This was Noah’s 8th grade one:
I will turn it and my Letter’s of Intent for the 08-09 school year in on the 28th when our school system is back from spring break!
Sample of the dividers.. This is Math and I always write a brief summary or what we used, what worked, what didn’t , if we finished the book etc for each subject on it’s divider.:

His Switched on Schoolhouse “report card” for Science and Language arts:
some samples of the actual written work he did for Language arts that wasn’t part of a Lapbook:

I also make certain to add in a few of his lapbooks and such:
