The notebooking journey has awakened something fresh and exciting in our school time. I was struggling to "organize" what the kids were learning in history and science and truthfully, just wanted to inject some FUN into those two subjects with minimal prep time. I have found the templates from the Treasury Membership collection to be outstanding help for each my 7 students--from my really creative children to my reluctant writers--and well worth the money we invested in it. My children are pleased to see their history and science notebooks taking shape. With Notebooking Pages by their sides, they have created something to be really proud of!

I purchased the \"explorers\" notebooking pages and we\'ve been studying explorers since november. My 4th grader loves to fill the pages out with a picture and about 5 sentences of importants facts. My 1st grader, is not a very good writer so the notebooking page with 3-4 pictures and 3 big sqaures next to the pictures work great for her! We\'re all able to enjoy history together and actively participate in learning thanks to your notebooking pages that are made appropriately for different levels!
— Terry Kim, Chantilly, VA
Our children are enjoying using the Basic Notebooking Pages set this year. We use them especially in history this year, and they are making a history notebook that brings all their history narrations into one place. The youngest children use pages with just a few lines and place for illustrations, while the oldest uses pages with more space for writing for her written narrations. We're also using this set for vocabulary words, reading, verb conjugations... I love how versatile this set is. It really is sufficient for all our notebooking needs!
— Natasha, Quebec
We used the notebook pages on China. There were so many pages to choose from, we couldn't begin to use them all. It made a really nice notebook with all the different styles.Thank you
— Nancy Lewis, NC
We have really enjoyed using the freebie scientist notebooking pages this year. We are using Simply Charlotte Mason's 106 Days of Creation study, and have found that many of the scientists in that study are included in the freebie pages here. I love that the notebooking pages are so nicely done - simple, professional, and classic. We've also enjoyed using a variety of the freebie science experiment pages to document our science activities. Great pages!!
— Jennifer, New Jersey
Debra, I think your comments about "doing it all" were very well said. I have nine children, and know what it's like to homeschool with a large family and new baby-- now I'm only teaching the youngest two, who are 11 and 14, and my life is very different; easier in some ways, but I still struggle with time management because there are so many things I would like to do. The two points you made, about working with a "to-do" list and doing what God is calling you to do, are what I have been learning to base my plans and daily activities on, and I think these really help.
— Diane Hurst, Vancouver, WA
I love Notebooking! It is such a great way for the children to \"show what they know\" right at the level they are at. Some of my kids have trouble writing--they are so glad to have space to draw pictures and the layouts are inspiring, becuase there are many pages with fewer lines--not so intimidating. The selection is amazing--and always growing! I am also LOVING the Treasury Membeship idea, because I have always \"wanted it all\" and now I can have it!!!
— Kriste Solomon
Basic Notebooking Pages are my standard goto! I have other downloads but these are great for our CM homeschool. After reading a book, doing a science experiment or what ever, the Basic Pages have so many different layouts that suite any sort of review. They are quick to print (usually I decide to use after we finish a book) I am not a planner, and that is what is great about them, different styles to suite any need. And they look great when the children are done. Great for samples for our portifolio, they look like alot of time was invested in them. We have 10 dc so for simplicity- go with the Basic Notebooking Pages LOVE 'em Kristi
— Kristi A, PA
I use the floral copywork pages and the animal copywork pages for my children's handwriting assignments. Ther are well laid out and attractive and give the finished handwriting pages a nice look rather than just plain paper. Thank you for providing pretty and useful pages for others to use! You have saved me a great deal of time. I had tried to make pages similar to these before I found yours. I found it to be difficult to get a nice finished page that was symetrical, so I really appreciate all your hard work.
— Christine Hebert, Chicopee, MA
I just had to stop by and say that I recently purchased the Ancient Egypt notebooking pages and we love them! We use My Father's World curriculum and we are studying "creation to the Greeks" and these pages have been a wonderful asset to MFW. My kids range in ages: 10, 8, 6, and 4 and there is a page that fits each child's age. Thank you so much for making quality pages at affordable prices. Sincerely, Kelly in ABQ
— Kelly, albuquerque, NM
Your notebooking pages are super! We have enjoyed using them! It is nice to have well put together pages ready to print when we need them. Your NC pages are a great asset to studying our state. Thank you for simplifying my life while adding fun and learning to my children's lives!
— Lois Graham, NC
Debra, Thank you so much for the Christmas Freebie! Merry Christmas my sweet internet friend. Teri :~)
— Teri, Spokane WA
We have been using the basic notebooking package to have the kids write recipes that they have enjoyed. These pages will eventually become a cookbook for them when they get married. It is also an adorable way of preserving their writing.
— Kelly, Texas
The kids and I have been using and greatly enjoying the entire set of notebooking pages for the last few months. We love them because it is so easy to find themed pages to go along with the books that we read. When my children were studying the different habitats, they were able to find appropriate pages to go along with each biome. The borders were another fun way to add beauty to their written narrations and pictures. We look forward to using many more themed pages from NotebookingPages!
— Cynthia Casanova, California
We just love using the "Basic Primary-Lined Pages Freebie booklet". It is great to have all the different sizes of lined pages avaliable. We have used them in serveral different ways such as in lapbooks, writing reports and my daughter uses them to do a journal with her Grandma every Monday afternoon! Thank you for the great freebies!
— Becky, Ontario
Product Review: (FREE) Bible Pages
We are enjoying using the Bible pages. The kids enjoy drawing and coloring pictures relating to the different characters. This has really helped their comprehension of the Bible.
— Patricia Gneiding, WA
We bought the notebooking pages pack a couple of years ago and love the convenience of them. It seems no matter what we're studying, there is a notebooking page all ready to go and several to choose from. Love the ease of it all. Thanks for all your hard work, I'll be using these for years to come.
— Kim, Florida
I enjoyed the notebooking pages very much. They are very adaptable whether you do notebooking style or do special projects that we do for other curriculums that we use.
— Esther peters, Manitoba, / Canada
Over the years, we've used many of the notebooking pages. We've used the Famous People notebooking pages to help with our history and science studies. My boys especially like them because then they know they have a 'finite' space in which to write their reports. It's not just an open-ended "Write a report about George Washington Carver." They know it has to fit on that one page, with space for 1 or more pictures they can either draw or cut-n-paste.
— Karleen Mauldin, Conroe, TX
Product Review: History Notebooking Pages
I love the history pages. It makes the kids sit down and show what they have learned and they can put it in their own words - they don't have use other people's words.
— Staci, Missouri
As a family with a limited income I want to thank you for the freebies you offer. We started with the Basic Lined Paper, then moved to some other pages such as George Washington. Your designs and illustrations are beautiful and they encourage our children to write and explore their education in a fun and creative manner.
— Donna Henkel, LA
We study history chronologically in our homeschool. As we come to each president in our American History, we stop and spend a day or two learning about him. When we do this, we also do a notebook page on his wife. For this, we love using the Presidential First Ladies Notebooking Pages. My 15 year old daughter picks out which page she likes best and writes her summary on it. My younger children request the coloring picture page to color and add to their notebook. This set has made it very easy to quickly add in the First Lady to our president study, and the variety of pages allows me to use it with different ages of children. We love it!
— Aimee, WI
I purchased the Ancients and Basic at the beginning of the school year and just recently purchased the Treasury. I wrote a review on my blog that you can read, but we LOVE notebooking pages. My highly kinestethic learner loves to go back and look at his pages and it's a great way to "show what you know" without have to give a test!
— Chantelle Grubbs, Alabama
I just purchased the Treasury Membership for my three children, in 1st, 2nd and 4th grades. My 2nd grader recently asked me what I knew about volcanoes (not as much as I'd like to admit) so we gathered several books and printed off many styles of notebooking pages from the Nature Study section. They had a great time, and already have a list of the next topics of study that they each want to do. Normally we would check out a book about volcanoes at the library and that would be that. This way, they practiced penmanship, learned vocabulary words, and have many illustrated pages that they have continued to add to. We all had fun and learned a lot. Thanks!
— Amy, Maryland
I have used, States, presidents, USA , 13 colonies, Mesopotamia, and so many freebies, I love these pages, because they add so much to my children's notebooks that they make each quarter. It also encourages many questions about the graphic or picture that is on the page... for example, "hey that's the aqueduct we read about" and they are encouraged to write about it. I love Notebooking pages.
— Kim Boyenger, Kansas
We have fallen in love with notebooking and all the creativity that comes with it. After using all the freebies on your website, I finally went ahead and bought the CD with all of your notebooking pages on it. I love printing exactly what we need to add the most to our notebooks. I also love knowing I'm investing in a timeless product I can use with all my children. Thanks for doing such a great job.
— Rebecca Bagwell, Alexandria, AL
Product Review: All Products (now the Notebooking Pages Treasury Membership)
I purchased a CD with the complete pages on it prior to the start of the last school year. We have used several of the notebooking pages in our homeschool since then including the Nature study: Birds, Nature Study: General, a few odds and ends here and there and the complete 50 United States notebooking pages. I used the United States Notebooking pages to teach a co-op class last year to a total of 11 children. We study 2 states a week, filled in our forms, etc. and filed them in our Unites States Unit Study Notebook. I HIGHLY recommend all of the above notebooking pages!
— Laura Williams, TN
We have been using the Ancient History notebooking pages with Story of the World Vol. 1 this year, and I was able to match one or more pages to each chapter to go along with our studies. My son Aidan loves it!
— Melissa, IL
A HUGE thank you for offering so many free notebooking pages. I have worked hard to make a few geography pages on my own and it turned out horrible. Thank you for offering you states outlines (geography section)for free, it has made our "notebooking the states" so much easier. You are saving me lots of time and effort. The pages are well done.
— Niki Smith, NC
Product Review: Nature Study Pages
Wow! Notebookers and Charlotte Mason fans pay attention! Here is a great resource for you. And for those who don't fit the above descriptions, you may very well like this, too. I think everyone from unschoolers to the classically minded could make good use of this nature-journal facilitating software. The first part of this computer CD contains a slew of nature notebooking pages. At the beginning there is a Nature Study Notebook Cover and suggestions for using the pages themselves, which are categorized in eight sections.
First comes the "7 Days of Creation," with several templates for journaling and illustrating. All of the pages that have writing space include pages with primary-style lines (with a dotted line between two solid lines) and pages with standard lines for older students.
Next is "All about Animals," which has six sub-sections: Amphibians, Birds, Fish, Invertebrates, Mammals, and Reptiles. Among the myriad options, there is a page for drawing animal tracks, an "observation jar" page for drawing little captive creatures, and lifecycle pages. The spider page has a place for sketching the web, and there is an arthropod page with a sectioned template for drawing the head, thorax, and abdomen. A nice feature found here and in the plant section is a "word bank" where specific terms are printed at the bottom of the page for student reference--good for building vocabulary and spelling skills.
The "Habitat" chapter is most comprehensive: arctic, beach, creek and pond, desert, forest, jungle, mountains, plains, prairie, rain forest, streams and rivers, rotting logs, savannah, sea and ocean, under a rock, underground, and yard. I especially like the last one, as that is a familiar and convenient habitat for children to explore! Rotting logs and under a rock sound like fun too.
The "Nature Log and Journaling Pages" are lined with "date," location," and "notes" column headings. There is a generic page and one for each season as well as various template pages with space for writing and drawing.
"Plants, Flowers, and Trees" come next. The flower pages have places for leaf and flower/petal detail. The tree pages have spaces to illustrate the bark, leaves/needles, and the flowers/fruit/nuts/cones. There is also a place for bark rubbings.
The last three sections are "Rocks and Minerals," which includes igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks as well as minerals; "Seasons"; and "Weather," with all kinds of daily, weekly, and monthly weather logs among other things. There is even a page for the water cycle.
Each section contains a cover page for separating each category and organizing your nature notebook. The template pages are most attractive, with beautiful illustrations and pleasing layout.
At the end of this Nature Notebooking half of the CD is a bonus section. It is an amazing assortment of nature-themed fun frames and borders. These could be used as additions to your children's nature journal or would be perfect for letter-writing or stories. The author also suggests using them for copywork and dictation. There are rainbows, birds, flowers, leaves, seashells, snowflakes, frogs, and butterflies to name a few. Some are black and white, most are in color and range from quaint to "cartoon-y" in style. In general, they lean toward "girly" in their appeal.
Whew! Okay, so now comes the second half of the CD, which is North American Birds Notebooking Pages. There are 680 notebook pages for 97 types of birds, and there are blank templates for adding other birds. Again, you will find both primary and regular-style line options for all the pages that have journaling space. Seven different page templates are available for each bird. Some are full-page illustrations for coloring. Where it applies, male and female species are shown. Many of the pages have a space for the common and scientific name. One template has a range map printed on it.
We usually school year-round, trying to plug in some fun stuff in the summer months along with the usual catch-up. I've added "Nature Notebooking" to my summer to-do list, and the kids are 100% behind me. I will also make sure we take pertinent pages (animals, habitats, birds, frames, and borders) with us on our family vacations from now on!

Product Review: Character Study Notebooking Pages
I love these note booking pages! I have long desired to incorporate character studies into our school day. These pages are just what I have been looking for. They are beautiful and I love that I can use one set for daughter and one for son. I plan on having these bound and laminated as a treasured keepsake for years to come! Thank you Debra for creating this awesome product!
— Stephanie Glidden, Maine
The Free time line pages were a great help to my boys. It helps them put things in perspective. Thanks for this wonderful tool. I have also started to use the Free Samuel Bible pages. The boys really like the idea of these instead of plan note book paper
— Brooke Bakhuyzen, Michigan
I just love the Moms home journal! I finally know where everything is. I'm getting my life back in order. I've had planners before but nothing compares to this. I've never even heard of anything that you could adjust and adapt to all areas of a persons life.
— Kimberlee Gann, NE
Thank you for providing such wonderful Bible oriented Notebooking Pages. I have used several of them with our Mystery of History Study. They are a blessing as I don't have to sit and scour the internet for photos then try to make my own notebooking pages. No need to do that when you have many available right here on NotebookingPages.com! Thank you and God Bless!
— Laura Williams, TN
The Treasury is such a great idea. I am enjoying having the flexibility to use any page available. My 9yo son usually avoids all writing/drawing, but has no problem with these notebooking pages. Thanks so much.
— Sandy, Northeast Ohio

Thank you so much for such great notebook pages! I haven't found any other notebook pages that compare to yours and my kids love them!
Product Review: (FREE) History Notebooking Pages
We have used some of your freebie notebooking pages for ancient history. I am impressed with the quality and variety of pages. My boys enjoyed being able to choose their own page on a given person or topic, and have it be unique to their notebooks. The notebook pages game me some good ideas for organizing our thoughts and lesson reports. Thank you! We will be purchasing some further products in the future!
— Lois, Michigan
I love the TOG History pages. We make a notebook every year and it has really helped us stay on track. Thank you for offering this for free.

Product Review: Notebooking Pages Treasury Membership
I have just recently purchased my membership and already my children are enjoying the wonderful notebook pages. My 1o year old daughter is studying birds and have used the bird study kits and I also printed some alphabet pages for my 4 year old, she was so excited to write a card for grandma. Thank you.
— Christelle, Alberta
We just started with the notebooking pages from the basic lined page and already. it changes the way the girls looked at their days of work. they already like to draw, but now, they can do it most of the time. Wow!!! I wish I\'ve taken the time to visit the site before....;-)))
— Isabelle, Lévis, Québec
Product Review: Famous Composers Notebooking Pages
I purchased the Famous Composers Notebooking pages and they are worth every penny! For each composer it includes multiples style pages for different ages/abilities of children. So far we've used Vivaldi, and will soon use Bach and Handel. Thank you for such great pages.

Product Review: Basic Lined Notebooking Pages
Product Review: State Study Complete Set
I just love these tools! I started out by only collecting Debra’s products which I had gotten free from the weekly downloads at homeschoolestore and also on the NotebookingPages website. They were so cool! I recently purchased the complete State Study set and it is just really, really cool. I know, I am gushing. I cannot recommend these products enough. I am certain I will be buying more. Within the State Set, each state has dozens of pages including map pages, state bird, state flower, state map, state nickname and mottto pages, several coordinating notebooking layout pages, and a teacher guide section! Alabama for instance has 40 pages, and only 2 are teacher instructions. So my brief list does not really do it justice! The drawings are beautiful. Also, this set has many, many bonuses. I can’t wait to start using this set next week, and neither can my children…
This summer, I introduced the kids to the concept of notebooking with the Basic Plus set. I wanted them to write about their favorite part of each book for summer reading contests we were involved in. I told them they had to write at least one sentence for the book to count toward the contest. They had to read 15 books for the Library contest, and 8 different books for the Barnes and Noble contest. I printed out one of each of the Basic Plus Lined Pages, and let them choose their favorites. They were thrilled! As you can see from the pictures, my son (age 6) wrote more then one sentence! My daughter’s pages (age tended to be one or two sentences at most because she preferred to concentrate on the drawing and coloring parts. Since this is her first experience with notebooking; I intend to let her build up to a more acceptable level! The variety included in the Basic set is such that the pages can be used by boys or girls. The set includes 100 different layouts in both Primary and Regular lined formats. Some pages have room to draw and some do not.
— Amy, Bow of Bronze Reviews
My kids and I absolutely LOVE your notebooking pages! They look incredible and are so easy to use! I love that you can use them for older or younger ones also! All the options for each product page is wonderful!!! Thank you so much for such a helpful and affordable creation!
— Julie, Tennessee
Last year in January I was able to download the calendar pages, as well as the previous meal schedules, and home blessing schedules. Our lives are better organized now, and we are saving money on groceries, because I have my meals planned out for the month. The kids chores are scheduled for the month as well, so there is no question whose turn it is to do what chore. :) Thank you so very much for those freebies.
— Rebecca Luke, Orlando, Florida
I LOVE the State Study birds, flags and flowers pages. Using these along with other pages for our US geography made things much less frustrating for my son when he was studying the states. He liked to glue the colored flags, seals and birds into place on his study sheets. Thank you for putting easy to use tools like this a click away!
— Christine Hebert, Chicopee, MA
My daughter has used the Copywork Winter and Christmas paper for writing thank you notes from her Christmas gifts. She really enjoys coloring the pictures after writing her note.
— Teressa Foote, Michigan
This is the first year I have tried notebooking, so I was in need of some pages. I subscribed to notebooking news, learned a lot about notebooking, and downloaded the free pages offered. I enjoyed them so much, I bought the cd of all of the notebooking pages. With the 25% off I received from the subscription, it was a great value. I use the pages almost everyday now.
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your products!!! I stumbled upon your website a couple of years back, and ended up ordering the complete set of notebooking pages. It has become a staple item in our homeschooling! What a valuable resource! Whenever I need a page for something, be it math, spelling, etc., all I have to do is go to my cd of notebooking pages, browse, and print what I need!!! No more frustration of searching the internet for hours on end only to find something that isn't what I was looking for. Your products are JUST what we need - EVERY TIME!!!! I cannot recommend your website enough!!!! Thank you so much for what you do - you are a Godsend! :-)
— Nicole Hale, Jacksonville, FL
Great products! Great pages, versatile for most any subject you need to study! We are a homeschooling family of 6, ages 17- 6 yrs. of age. I mostly use the notebooking pages for the three younger boys, 10,8, and 6. But use the biography and copywork pages for book reports and/or history narration for the older ones as well. I use the basic notebooking set for anything and everything, but also the nature pages with borders, and birds. For history, science, copywork, and nature study, the possibilities are endless. Anytime an opportunity arises for a study project, we just grab the "pack" and give each child the choice of his own liking and away we go! The finished notebooks so far for this year gives them incentive to keep adding more. We have all subjects combined into one three ring binder with dividers for this year since it was our first experience with notebooking. I am really enjoying it with the boys and can't wait to see more pages as they are added to your ever growing list! Keep up the good work!!
— Joyce Strite, cochise az
This website was recommended on a forum I frequent. I checked it out because I had just started using Tapestery of Grace and wanted some ideas. It was great to find out several of pages were free! I especially like the Basic pages - they are so versatile. I can't wait to use more of the history pages as we proceed through future years in Tapestry of Grace! Thanks for such a helpful tool in making learning more fun!

Alphabet Copywork Pages
Floral Copywork Pages
(FREE) Bible Pages
I love your notebooking pages! I stumbled across your website a couple years ago when looking for some letter pages for my son to learn his letters with. I ended up ordering your ABC pages, as well as floral design notebooking pages for my daughter and have been very happy with the way their notebooks have turned out. I was excited this year to make use of your free Bible pages as we are using the Veritas Press timeline cards and the Bible notebooking pages have been working PERFECTLY for our narrations! THANK YOU!!
— Katie, Michigan
I purchased the 2 CD package with the basic lined pages and alphabet copy work pages for my two boys, ages 5 & 8. I printed out the alphabet pages and placed them in order to follow the letter of the week curriculum from our charter school. My 5 year old uses them every week to practice the letter of the week and writing words from the letter of the week or his sight words. He picked out his cover, pictures of our twin Border Collies and our older dog who passed away over the summer. My oldest son likes the 3 column sheets for his spelling tests, when he gets 100% he\'ll put stickers in each of the boxes at the top. And for me - I printed out the Mom\'s Control Journal freebies and set up my control journal that goes with me everywhere! Thank you for all the products you offer. They\'ve made learning fun for my boys and staying organized pretty and fun for me!
— Natalie Tschacher, California Hot Springs, California
I purchased the State notebooking package for my 9-year-old. Not only did she have fun learning about Texas, but I also adapted it for my 16-year-old. Now both are using it for U.S. State History at different levels. They are scrapbooking through the U.S. The best part of all of this is as a new homeschooler (1st year) it is a tremendous help to me, but also they are working TOGETHER. Its great. I am now a member of notebooking. Thanks for everything.
— Cindy, Texas
I LOVE your freebie calendar printables. I have used them for years in our small moonwalk business and in my milk goat barn to track medications, heats, due dates, etc!! Thank you so much for that resource.
— Karen, TN
I just love your notebooking pages. This has become my "go to" site when I need a notebooking page. We use My Father's World and there are a ton of compatible pages that would coordinate with any program you use or you could even use them on their own. Thanks for a great product!

Product Review: State Study Complete Set
Product Review: Famous Composers Notebooking Pages
Product Review: North American Birds Notebooking Pages
I’ve recently discovered something……..there are notebooking pages; and there are NOTEBOOKING PAGES! "What’s the difference?" you ask. Well, let me see if I can explain…….
We are not a strictly notebooking family, though we have used notebooking in various ways in our homeschooling. I love it, and think it’s a fantastic approach; but, let’s face it, it takes some work. I’ve seen, and tried, LOTS of different notebooking products- some have been helpful, others have been less-than-impressive.
The other week, I was introduced to something new in the world of notebooking (new to me, at least). Debra from NotebookingPages.com has created notebooking pages that are, in my personal opinion, beyond compare! You can go to her website and check out these pages for yourself- she even offers FREE notebooking pages (click on the "Free Pages" tab at the top of the website). This is an awesome way for you to sample her pages; but, trust me, it will only leave you longing for more!
I am sampling the State Study Pages for my home state of Pennsylvania- this particular packet contains 37 notebooking pages including many different notebooking layouts, pages of cut-outs to add dimension to your notebooking (and/or lapbooking projects), along with 2 pages of suggested topics of study, directions, and some basic state facts. I am planning to use these pages with my daughter when we study PA history in the years to come. There are packets for all 50 states which can be purchased individually, as a set of 50, or as a set containing the original 13 colonies.
My 13-year old got excited when I showed her the Famous Composers Notebooking Pages. I’ll admit, despite good intentions, we just have trouble sticking with a music appreciation program. We’ve got this great book called Themes to Remember and the girls just love it. Many of the composers discussed in that book are included in this packet of notebooking pages. There are 24 composers included and a total of 96 notebooking pages. My girls are going to love adding these pages to our music notebooks!
The packet I am most excited about (so far) is the North American Birds Notebooking Pages. This set includes 172 pages for 42 of North America’s most popular bird species! I have a little girl at my house who is a huge bird watcher and she is going to go crazy over these pages! Debra has designed four fabulous layouts for each bird, including a full-page coloring sheet, a large coloring sheet with a few lines for writing below it, a page with a medium-sized coloring picture and space to document the bird’s name and other details along with a ½ sheet of space for writing other things, and a page similar to the last one with a 1/4 sheet for writing and a map to detail the bird’s migration habits. Wow! This packet is outstanding! It’s like nothing I have ever seen before! I am so excited to use these next year as we begin our study of the Flying Creatures.
If you are a notebooking family and you have not seen Debra’s site, please take the time to check it out- I know you’ll be impressed. If you are NOT a notebooking family, I urge you to check out these products- you’ll quickly become a notebooking family, trust me! The Notebooking Pages website is very user-friendly. You will find all the great notebooking products that I mentioned above, as well as sets on the presidents, history topics, other nature studies, copywork pages, and much more! While you’re there, take the time to read Debra’s Notebooking Information- she has an explanation of notebooking, as well as tips and tricks to make your notebooks look fantastic, and links to samples. Also, she’s included free printables and charts for your home and your school; and lots and lots of homeschooling helps (including links).
Oh, there’s one more thing……the price. Let’s just say, YOU’LL BE IMPRESSED! I’ve added Notebooking Pages to my list of favorites, and will be visiting (and buying often!)
— Heidi, Reviews by Heidi
I no longer have to make any decisions about what to purchase and download, I have access to EVERYTHING! Being a member brings a real treasure. I want to say how happy I was to see the Elvis notebooking page. This was a golden oppportunity to talk about many who celebrated or would have celebrated their birthdays this months. Although not a president, his music and mannerisms brought about a drastic change to our country. My son loves his music especially his gospel music and I used this notebooking sheet to discuss the pros and cons of that. Love our \\\'pages\\\'...
— Theresa Grimes, Texas
I just love the treasure trove of pages that I've found so far in the notebooking pages treasury. More importantly, my seven year old daughter gets excited about writing when she sees the newest cute animal, idea or story inspiring page. I'm so very thankful for this sight, it saves me a lot of work and money.
— Joy, WA
I have Debra's complete collection, a member of Notebooking Pages Treasury, and own Mom's Home Journal. I have to say as a homeschool mom of five these products have helped me tremendously. There is something for everyone. It takes such a burden off me to have this wonderful resource. I have struggled with organization and creativity for years. These products have been a lifesaver from time to time. They have freed up time for me to focus on so many things that demand my attention. Truly a blessing in my life.
— Tonya Henrichs, Kentucky
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Debra and her family for all her hard work. We use SWR (Spell to Write and Read) for phonics. I have found her notebooking pages as a wonderful, accessible resource while using SWR. The spelling log, challenge word, grammar pages, and blank pages have all been used here in our home! Thanks so much, Kelly

Product Review: All Products (now the Notebooking Treasury)
I am a homeschooling mommy of four children, ages 4-14. I am also a missionary in a remote African village. I have been teaching my children for 10 years, and haven't yet found my fit in the curriculum world. I have my kids creating binders for Bible history and geography with pages I create & they fill in & decorate. I had no idea that what I was doing was called notebooking or that anyone else did it. I stumbled upon your site a few days ago and can't get enough! We only have internet access three times a year when we're in the capital city, so I've ordered your CD with ALL your pages. I am really excited about incorporating your pages into my kids' binders that they started last year. You have blessed our family tremendously. I plan to tell all the other missionary-homeschool moms here about your site. Most here use Sonlight, and these pages would be fabulous for the kids to use to keep a record of what they've learned from the books they've read.

Product Review: Basic Lined Notebooking Pages
Does your family like to notebook? Do you encourage your children to write what they've learned during a lesson? Do you assign copywork? Do your children write stories or letters? Do you encourage your children to keep a nature journal, or maybe a prayer journal? You've probably answered "yes" to at least one of the questions. If you have, I don't think you will regret owning your very own copy of Basic Primary and Regular-Lined Notebooking Pages.
Basic Primary and Regular-Lined Notebooking Pages is a computer disk full of 225 "generic" notebooking pages. Though I used the word "generic," I certainly don't mean that the pages aren't wonderful! What I do mean is that the pages can be used for a variety of purposes in a variety of subjects.
The CD contains three sets of Adobe files. The first set includes 100 black and white notebooking pages with primary writing lines (large writing spaces with a dashed line going through the middle.) The second set contains the same 100 notebooking pages, but with plain lines for older children. And, finally, the third set includes 25 full-color borders with no lines.
The possibilities for using these pages really are endless. Whether you choose a flower-bordered page with lots of writing lines or an insect-inspired one with just a few writing lines, the choice is yours. If you are studying an important historical person, maybe you'll want to use the biography notebooking page. You might choose to copy the one with the capitol on it for your study of Washington D.C. One-hundred different pages that can each be used in many different ways equals notebooking bliss!
The black and white pages come in various styles and designs. Some have pictures, some have borders and some have both. There are very pretty designs and, yet, the pages should appeal to both girls and boys. Most pages are vertical, but a few are horizontal. They look nice in black and white, but coloring could add even more interest if your child desires. Since the 25 color borders are unlined, they would be perfect for drawings, invitations, title pages, notebook covers, and more. Again, they come in a variety of themes, some of which include borders for baseball, music, birthdays, and sewing.
The author has given permission for the purchaser of a CD to make enough copies for his or her own family or a single classroom. Co-op teachers, are your wheels spinning?
Obviously, with so many options for using these pages, they would work with any curriculum style (Charlotte Mason, Classical, Unit Study, etc.) and with most learning styles. I found that using the pages even inspired my reluctant writer! Not to mention, our notebooks look so much nicer with these pages rather than regular notebook paper.
I also like that I can just pop my CD in to the computer, find what I need, and print it. I do enjoy having a book in my hand to browse through, but the printed product is so much nicer from a CD than a book. It takes up a lot less space, too. In fact, if you'd like to take up even less space, the author has a downloadable version of the program that you store in your computer.
I believe this product is well worth the money. If you enjoy notebooking, you can't go wrong with these pages.

I am new to notebooking and have loved the variety of pages here. the ones I have was and am most interested in were the character studies and the Bible pages. I got those free and just had to get the membership. I am excited to use the 3-D Notebooking system as we love lapbooking too. We have gotten the Ancient Egypt pages and are getting ready to finish up our study. WE have done several books and I have the pages all printed out. the boys love the fact that they aren't boring notebook paper.
— Vickie, Boise, ID
Love all the products despite my daughter having dysgraphia making writing anything a challenge. I have been able to pick and choose from many of the freebies that do work for her and have used them in several subjects. I especially like the science experiment freebie pages with boxes to draw in. Thanks for making them available.
— Sharon, Goodyear, AZ
We use your USA State Geography notebooking pages and we love them! I have used notebook pages from other sites for previous State studies, but yours far surpass any others I have used. These notebooking pages are wonderful because they include so much beyond the usual flag, motto and map pages. I love the inclusion of inventors and travel pages. We also love the various page layouts included for each activity, since each of my children are different learners. Thank you so much for this wonderful resource! It is great to have everything we need for our State studies available in one package!
— Jennifer, Tennessee
I've been using the free 2011 calendar pages from the link in the January 5th e-mail to make a customized exercise calendar/journal. I can keep track of days I exercise & what exercised I do; what I've eaten; ideas for healthy snacks, etc. I like the variety of page styles offered, so I can make my own customized calendars!
— Karleen Mauldin, Conroe, TX
I just happened upon your site. We are in our first year of homeschooling our (now) 7-yr-old son, and I've used notebook-type studies with him throughout. What a delight to find ready-made notebook pages for all his studies! This save me SOOOO much time that I previously spent with clip-art and drawing electronic lines... And your pages are beautiful, too. Thank you! Kim
— Kim Bennett, Connecticut
We have been using the Treasury this year in conjunction with Sonlight history, and it has added a WONDERFUL dimension to our history time. The variety of page styles allows my 6 year old to choose a page with blocks for drawing, my 9 year old to have one with blocks and lines for a little note-taking, and my 12 year old to have mostly or all lines, ALL with coordinating artwork that matches the day's reading! We also use the copy work pages for handwriting- each has their favorite style they are using to create their "book of quotes." Thanks for such a great resource, at a great price- that I can use through the years with each of my kids!

Product Review: All Products (now the Notebooking Treasury)
Thank you so much for such a wonderful product. This is our first year doing notebooking and your site has been invaluable. We have the *whole package* and love it. Hope to see more products coming soon. You make it, we'll buy it! Thank you also for the newsletter subscriber bonuses. I am loving the Mom planning pages. I appreciate the seasonal theme.
— C. Beaumont, California
I want to share how liberated I felt when I discovered Notebookingpages. I had spent countless attempts at trying to make my own *creative* pages, with lines and pictures etc not knowing that there was the best website in the world for all the *creative* pages I needed. Realising now that there was such a thing as *Notebooking* I bought a couple of products from Debra and then decided to take the plunge and buy a Treasury subscription. It's the best homeschool decision I have ever made. My boring lessons have been made exciting by all the wonderful pages that our thoughts, ideas and lessons can be printed and written on. Do I have any particular favourites? I must confess that I really cannot decide. They are all so great and worthy of top place. Thank you Debra..... with all my heart~ hugs Sandra in New Zealand
— Sandra Reade, New Zealand
The Mom's Home Journal is a fantastic resource! I just love mine. The cover is personalized or seasonal if I want it to be, and it contains only the pages that are helpful to me. Some content is changeable before printing, and others I just print out. I've sectioned my large 3-ring binder, but it would be very nice to have smaller books as well. We have many of the notebooking resources and I love having topical pages for the children's writing that they can color if they wish. I love that the older children have tighter spacing, and younger ones have space to draw with only a few lines to fill with words. Pages or segments can easily fit into notebooking or lapbooking with the children. I also love the freebies from time to time! I have used notebooking pages for stationary, recipe cards for to-do lists or pretty shopping lists for my sweetheart, and have used many of the cards for thank-yous. The first thing I backed up after recovering from a computer crash on the external hard-drive was my extensive collection of NotebookingPages.com! I'm a busy mom and after 10 years of homeschooling this is my all-time-favorite homeschooling website.
— Kaari, Alaska
I would like to thank you for your hard work and sharing it with us to save us time. My husband is a very visual person and loves to see the girls (7 and 5) work. However, it is not until he sees their completed notebooks that he understands how hard they work, how much they learn and how much fun they have. Again, thank you for sharing your "Treasures" with us.
— Stephanie Ibsen, Doraville, GA
I love your pages ad have used them for the last 3 years for practically every subject except math... :-) I have a suggestion... Have you ever thought of designing notebooking pages for Ann Voskamp\'s Geography books, and for Trail Guide to World Geography Books? Thanks!
— Karen Schultz, Burlington, ON, Canada
I bought the treasury membership and have LOVED every page. My kids enjoy then too. From my 10 year old, down to my 2 year old. I love the freedom to 'shop' for whatever notebooking pages I need and not worry about how much it's going to cost. The membership was money VERY well spent!
— Shannon simmons, Ca
I recently joined the treasury and am absolutely stunned by what it includes! Here in Australia our school year runs from Feb to Dec with 3 term breaks...often resources available for homeschoolers are Northern Hemisphere "centric"...this means snowmen at Christmas (its summer for us) or very heavy on things like Halloween or Thanksgiving (we dont celebrate either). I have found that I can use all these great pages right when I need them....Snowmen in July and beachy summer pages at Christmas!! I think the treasury is the best value resource available and cant wait for the 2011 school year to start so I can start using the beautifully designed pages. Thanks also for aligning some of your history pages with Tapestry of Grace...you have just made my year so much easier and my kids learning a lot more fun!
— Rene Merritt, Australia
I ordered a full-site CD and now have treasury membership. Your pages are very worth while as they are comprehensive, and make it easy to find what I need. If you don't have something for a specific topic, no problem. Your basic pages pack has something that will fit right in. I think just your collection of basic pages have been used enough times to make it worth what I paid. We have really enjoyed notebooking in our homeschool and truly appreciate all the information that you have about it. We've now managed to work it smoothly into our days. Often times when teaching it is (obviously) not just enough to spout off facts and expect the kids to remember it. With the notebooking pages I don't have to spend lots of time looking for comprehension actities...just print out a notebooking page and set the kids to work! I only wish I could have done notebooks as a kid.
— Annie, Wisconsin
I LOVE the Famous Composers notebooking pages! I especially appreciate the photograph or drawing of each composer and the listed dates of their birth and death. Having six children, I also really appreciate that each of the notebooking pages sets include primary-lined and regular-lined formats to choose from to find one that is best suited for each child. Famous Composers notebooking pages works well with Zeezok Publishing's Composers biography book series. Excellent Product! Thank you!
— Cari Dierking, Simpsonville, SC
We have been using your notebook pages for several years and I love them. I have six children ages 4-12 and there is always an appropriate for each of them.
— Amy, Ca
My Husband got me the Notebooking pages Treasury for Christmas. I love it. I was spending hours looking for pages on the internet or trying to make my own. Now I can just click on the page that the children like press print and it is ready to go. I have been trying to do a time-line for the last couple of years. The Time line sheets are so easy to use, customize, and make the kids time-lines look great and Daddy can see what they are studying. And the new pages that are released at least once a month are an added and wonderful bonus. This month the vehicles were perfect for what we were studying with my preschooler. Thank you so much for such a great site at such an affordable price.
— LaZann, Utah
I have used the "to do planner", "weekly planner" and monthly calendar print outs for over a year now. I love the space provided on all these print outs that give me sufficient space for writing all that I need to. It keeps my schedule in one place thus giving me more order and organization in my life. The to do planner gives me a place to jot all the things that randomly come to mind and the weekly planner keeps them in order so I can get to the items on the to do list. I also like the space provided on the calendar, it is enough to joy important appointments and birthdays, and the weekly planner gives more space to elaborate and include more items. I have also used the winter themed cover and spine printouts for a organizational notebook. The images were attractive and colorful. I appreciated the different sizes for the spine. And it made my notebook that much more appealing to use. Thank you notebook pages for all that you provide.
— Deborah Bradley, Pittsford, New York
I found a link to Notebooking Pages on another site. That link was an answered prayer. Not only has the notebooking pages offer given our homeschool a much needed "breath of fresh air", I have also been able to use some of the ideas at church with our Keepers of the Faith program. Thank you for the inspiration!
— EMK, LIVE OAK, FL
I recently bought a membership to NotebookingPages.com, and the way I homeschool has changed for the BEST! I am a four year homeschool mom who struggled trying to find a way to make learning come alive for my children (ages 4, 14, 17, 18). They are enjoying putting together notebooks. It allows for their creativity to flow and they can write down what they find interesting about a subject instead of someone forcing an interest on them. They also get to draw if they want or find pictures to place in the notebook. A lot of kids love to doodle! NotebookingPages.com saves me time by providing such nice pages. Notebooking has been such a success for our homeschool!
— Susan, Ohio

Product Review: (FREE) History Timeline Notebooking Pages
I have been blessed to be able to use some of Notebooking Pages' freebies both in my home and in my classroom. I just love their time-lines and organizers! I'm able to keep over 29 students on task and on time with their assignments by using the Mom's Home Journal. I'm also able to keep them a little more clued in with all of the different time-line pages. I have a different one for almost every student since they all learn differently. The journal pages are great also for getting my students and my self thinking on the topic of the day. Notebooking Pages has been a blessing in my class and I look forward to using them in the future.
— Sara Cart, Lorain, Ohio
Once again, as I look at the new month's pages, I am so pleased to have a membership. I print what we'll use right now, save what we'll need in the future, and enjoy looking at the creative and clever pages. Love Mom's Tool Belt pages too! Thanks for all you do to help our school days (and life) be more productive!
— Leesa Chesnut, Ridge Farm, IL
I have 2 very intelligent young grandchildren ages 7 and 10. I help my daughter with their homeschooling on Saturdays when they come to our home for work in lapbooks and notebooks of special subjects. They have asked that we work on notebooks because of all the great pages I give them to take home and work on during the week. I have the dubious (according to my daughter) title of teaching the fun stuff while their mom has to teach them the boring stuff. I have started giving my daughter pages for the children so that they can say Mom gives them fund stuff also. I am so thankful for my membership. I have found so many great items to download and print out for the kids. My older children are a bit jealous. I taught in the dark ages of homeschooling (according to them). We did not have computers, the internet, homeschool groups, curriculum fairs or all the curriculum that is out there now. Thank you so much for all you do for the homeschooling community.
— Jackie Schlageter, New Mexico
Debra, Thank you so much for all the work you do for us. I love your products. Jordan is soooo cute. He really looks like he's a good baby. He is beautiful. Congratulations.

Our family really enjoys your notebooking pages. Lately, our favorite has to be the Latin pages. This has made understanding Latin and their derivatives much easier for all of my girls, but especially so for my 10 year old. Thank you so much for your creating such helpful products.
Thank you so much for these wonderful colored 3D sets! I LOVE them, I can already think of so many uses! I am pleased to be a member of the Treasury! Thanks again for the great products!
— Michelle, Kansas
I purchased the complete set of notebooks on cd when we first started homeschooling a few years ago. I have enjoyed them. They are very helpful in the fact that they give my children's work some color and give them even more to be creative with. I have tried other free items since and really enjoyed them. Thank you.
— Gina, Illinois
I have loved using the alphabet notebooking pages with my 3 and 5 year old as they both learn how to identify letters and sounds as well as write them. We have done a variety of activities with them -- coloring them, making the cute mini books, cutting out magazine pictures that start with that particular letter and one of our favorites (which is borrowed) is placing them in a plastic sheet protector and rolling out playdough to make the shape of the letter. All in all, they have been a huge help to this Mommy!! THANKS!
— Angie, Minnesota
I am new to notebooking and have absolutely LOVED the new Treasury Pages Package that I bought for a 25% SAVINGS! This is the tool that I have been looking for in homeschooling my two boys! You will NOT be disappointed...I did try the FREE pages first, to confirm the quality of the product...WOW!
— Shelly, Northwoods, WI
Thanks for the work put into creating these pages....it\'s been a great addition to our homeschooling! It\'s also a relief to know that I just have to print out pages that go along with the subject we are learning at that time----so easy, fun, and attractive!! Thanks again
— Cori Randolph, Idaho
I use the Basic Notebooking Pages as a review. The children tell me everything they remember about a subject we have studied. I write it down on the notebooking page. Then they draw a picture in the space provided, which gives me an even better idea of how much they retained. It gives me a very kid friendly guage of how much they learned.
— Heidi Cooper, Michigan

We have been studying ancient history along with the Old Testament the last year and found out about www.notebookingpages.com. We were new to notebooking, but now all we do is print the history/Bible pages that correspond to what we are studying and complete them. The kids are writing WAY more than I ever imagined, especially since they are NOT writers, and their notebooks look so nice and neat! And, the Notebook Treasury is fantastic! We get access to everything and the NEW stuff keeps coming! We've also used several of the nature pages, as well as picture study pages and composer pages. I am thoroughly enjoying all the variety and it's fun to allow the kids a choice in their pages as well.
— Dena Johns, Higginsville, MO
I just started homeschooling my 5-year old son for kindergarten this year. I'm new to homeschooling, and we are going through a charter school - so we are given a curriculum and assignments. But I have been frustrated with the curriculum and textbooks, and my son has been less than enthusiastic with the number of worksheets and "busy-work," and I was beginning to feel like I was killing his natural love for learning. Here I had this incredible child who is already reading on a 5th grade level, doing end-of-1st grade math, and yet he was starting to hate "school." I felt like I was failing. I started researching online for other homeschooling ideas, and came across the whole notion of notebooking, and it immediately appealed to me. It seemed so much more flexible than the curriculum we were assigned now, and it seemed like my son would be actually learning more than when he's just filling in blanks or drawing lines from pictures to words on worksheets. My first trial was with one of the freebie science notebooking pages. I printed the one with space for 3 pictures and then primary-lined writing area. We did a science experiment, and rather than just DO it, like we normally would have, after the experiment, I had my son draw pictures of the stages of the experiment and asked him to write a sentence about what he learned - and he LOVED doing it!!! It made the whole experience SO MUCH more of a learning experience, and even though it's been a couple weeks, he's STILL talking about it! Even though he generally dislikes writing, he truly enjoyed that experience, and I hope to have many more like it!! Thank you for opening a whole new world to us!!

Product Review: Notebooking Pages Treasury Membership
I recently became a Notebooking News subscriber. My boys love to do notebook pages and use their creativity. I love that there are soooo many pages on every imaginable subject to choose from. It is easy to find just what you are looking for, and the kids learn with the hands-on approach. This site is a real gem to our family.
— Shannon S., Washington
I wish I could remember how I was initially introduced to notebooking. I believe I Providentially stumbled upon this website for it has been the springboard for major changes in our home. After almost a decade of homeschooling, I knew what I wanted our schooling to look like, but at the same time I knew it was looking less and less like my vision. When I discovered these notebooking pages, I decided to use the freebies offered to try it out with my children. They didn't really notice a difference at first, so I began substituting some of our "independent" work with more notebooking pages. I was so pleased with the outcome. My children were becoming masters of the material we studied! I was sold! I purchased the Notebooking Pages Treasury during the Fall Sale and took advantage of the other bonuses offered. I asked for the Epi Kardia curriculum for Christmas and was again very pleased. My children were not as optimistic as I was about starting "another new curriculum." I was so pleased yesterday to hear my oldest son comment, "Is this what we're going to do more of? This is really fun!" I am now spending time reading all those wonderful books with my children, exploring the volumes of creative notebooking pages for ways to express what we've learned, and sharing it all with excitement to Daddy when he comes home. What a blessing this has been for our family. The key to our successful transition to notebooking was the wonderfully helpful emails that I received the first couple weeks after my registration on the website. Each email walked me through the process of incorporating these into our schooling. Without that I would have been too overwhelmed to know where to start. Instead it was an exciting process and a gradual (more permanent) transition. Thank you again for blessing our family!
— Deanna Hatfield, North Carolina
I recently bought "Ancient Central Americas." It is wonderful! I had looked and looked for notebooking pages or lapbooks that included The Olmec Civilization, and couldn't find anything until I looked here. So we used the notebooking pages as the center of our lapbooks, and they turned out beautiful! Thank you, Sandi Hauge
— Sandra Hauge, Great Falls, MT
I have loved having access to all of your notebooking pages as a Treasury Member. Paying for access to that was really a no-brainer for me. What a blessing it is to have all of these resources at my fingertips to print whenever I need....versus spending hours attempting to either create what I need or search for it on the internet. Your hard work has paid off to serve at least one family (although I know there are many more than just us!). THANK YOU doesn't seem like an adequate way to express our gratitude!
— Angie, Minnesota
I have loved the pages that we've bought. We have 4 children and they love being able to color the pages along with writing on them. It's added incentive to get the work done. I can't wait to get a ProClick so we can make nice notebooks out of them. I'm looking so forward to joining the Treasury this year, I think these pages are the best!
— Carol Beuth, Canada
I really love using the notebooking pages. Right now we are using the state pages and both my 2nd grader and 5th grader love them. It really helps that there are so many printable choices. It makes it so easy to use with different grade levels. Thank you.
— Heather Hanks
The Treasury Program is such a blessing to our homeschool. I know that no matter what rabbit trail our studies lead us down, I can find the perfect notebooking page to enrich our learning. Just click and print! It's that easy! :O)
We use your basic lined pages to primary lined pages for our writing journals. I like that I can print them as I need them. The kids love the ones with the framed box for drawing a picture to go with their writing. They are getting a little old for that now, but I still print them one now and then for fun.
— Barbie Benton, Saint Louis, MO
I purchased the pages for "Wildflowers, Weeds, and Garden Flowers" and I have one regret--that I didn't order the complete Nature Study set!! (a mistake I intend to remedy soon!) For each plant featured, the pages include a small color picture, which is nice to help the children identify it in the wild and know how to color it. Then there is such a delightful selection of pages for each species. Older children can draw the plant on one nice big sheet or have lines to write about the plant as well as draw the plant on another sheet. Younger children can just color a large picture of the plant, or color a picture on a page that has just a few lines for journaling. The set is appropriate for all ages, preschool through high school, and we will be using it with all our children for many years to come.

Product Review: (FREE) History Pages & (FREE) Missionary Pages
We have used many of your products, for a few yrs. we have used your free TOG printables and they are great as well as the Missionary sheets. They are a great way to review what you have been reading and then review the information when the sheets are filled in. We also have purchased a number of different items and find that this is one of the best ways to help our children retain information, by printing a photo. from the net of a person you are completing a sheet from, then adding key facts, and a timeline it just seems to help them get a more clear picture of the person or event being studied. Thanks for the great products
— Laureen, PA
So far I've onlt been able to download some of the free pages. I enjoy the Bible, Holiday, & History pages. I look forward to many more, & Hope that I can soon get a Treasury disc, as my dial-up is too slow to download files quickly. Thank you for so many great resources to aid us in our Teaching & Learning Journeys.
— Carricarriescreativekitchen, WA
Just want to say thank you for all that you offer. At the moment we can't afford to become members, but your freebies have added a lot to our lessons...Notebooking is new to us, and we are starting out small, but I feel once our son gets more into writing he will have me printing out a lot more paper. He did his thank you notes, and Christmas notes on your notebooking pages...I feel what we have done so far has been nicer looking then throwing it together. He did a time line of Harriet Tubman and with one of the pages he drew details of her life in the boxes and added his own words..This will be fun and I think these pages will encourage him to write...I feel this is a ministry and hope your family knows it is a blessing...
— Kolleen Heck, Flrorida
I have used your notebooking pages for several years now. I started with just the freebies for quite some time and then about a year ago or so, when the complete package went on sale I took the plunge and bought it. The Treasury is just icing on the cake. I use these pages for everything and cannot say enough about them.

Product Review: Copywork Notebooking Pages (Floral Designs)
These pages are absolutely beautiful, and I purchased them for my own use! As I am teaching my daughters with copywork, I want to create my own Scripture journal, and these pages are beautiful and feminine and perfect for my own personal use. I even plan to use a few of the pages as stationery - they are gorgeous. The different formats are so great for using with Scripture, poems, favorite inspirational quotes and more. Beautiful - JUST beautiful!!!
— Deb Taylor
I love using the History of Ancient Times Complete Set of Notebooking Pages. It is a complete volume with nearly every topic one might need to produce beautiful notebooks of their studies of Ancient Egypt, Ancient Asia, Ancient Greeks, Ancient Americas and Ancient Rome. The pictures are well-chosen and there is a variety of page styles for each topic so you can choose how much or little room you need for writing or if you want to illustrate something yourself in an empty box. I also like that it can be used with multiple children through the years as it provides lines for beginning writers as well as for older writers. We are finishing up our Rome study and I don't know how we could have made as nice a notebook without this resource!
— Shonya Klein, Missouri
I purchased the complete set of Notebooking pages last spring. It was my first purchase from NotebookingPages and I never buy things on impulse like this. I knew as soon as I saw the samples that I wanted this. We have used many of the Alphabet pages, and we also use the Nature Study pages. This month we are starting a study on ancient civilizations and I am just LOVING the notebooking pages. The pictures are great, very detailed and realistic and they are perfect for my little ones. I was worried that we would not be able to use a lot of these pages until they got older (they are in first grade and kindergarten) but we have already used a lot of them! The Ancient Egypt pages we are using now are just beautiful, and my children actually enjoy writing when they use them. I even use the copywork pages for handwriting and spelling practice. It is much more fun to do their work on pretty pages! It is even neater now that you have made this a treasury, and I always look forward to the updates. I can't wait to use the A-Z Animals pages, I know my kiddos will go crazy for them! Thank you SO much for all of your hard work. I recommend your pages to everyone I know who is homeschooling.

Thank you for Treasury Membership offer it is very affordable. Our son had a stroke, causing long and short term memory. Notebooking is great for him ,they aid with recall, memory and he really enjoys them. They are easy to adapted to his level yet are still challenging enough for him.

I just wanted to congratulate you on your beautiful new little boy and to tell you not to push yourself too hard, give your body time to heal, over here in the UK you can't drive for 6weeks after a c-section because it takes that long to heal, I had one with my youngest son and found it hard with three others to take care of so I must say I am in awe of you with your wonderful brood! I am new to Home schooling and we are still finding our feet and waiting to find they way that is going to work for our family, we have removed one of our sons from school and chose not to let another start this year which has caused a fair few raised eyebrows I must admit - Home School is fairly unusual over here but on the increase. If you'd told me a year ago if this would be what we would be doing I wouldn't have believed you but The Lord made it very clear, very suddenly that this was his plan for us and here we are! I have found sites like yours a real blessing and encouragement as we begin this journey of ours, thank you. Blessings Helen

I so enjoy the Planning/Calendar pages. As a busy homeschooling Mom of three, I find it necessary to keep a daily plan and these are wonderful. Thank you.

The 50 States Complete Set is the set that launched our first notebooking adventure! We started studying each individual state in the summer of 09' and to date it is my kids favorite subject, hands down! There have been many tweaks and adjustments to our geography studies but this set remains the corner stone!

I came across notebooking shortly after I discovered lapbooking for my homeschooled children about 2 years ago. I came across your site and had been using your freebies until this past fall when I purchased the Notebooking Treasury collection...what a steal. This has saved me countless hours at the computer trying to either make my own or scouring the net to find appropriate notebooking pages for my kids...now that we are fully into copywork as part of our school routine these pages have been a blessing. The kids enjoy picking out their pages to their liking and it makes their copywork enjoyable, mind you I have a couple of kids who do not like to write, but love copywork! We have many loose pages of work in folders, some stapled, but not great in appearance. For the past 6-8 months I have looked at the ProClick binding machine and just can't get myself to purchase this at the cost they have become(very tight budget)...when I saw you were having this as your drawing this month, you could not believe my excitement. So here I am giving my testimony and wishing you, your family and this site many blessings. You truly have been an inspiration to me.

What an amazing resource Notebookingpages have been to us! We began with the free Bible pages to supplement our FIAR book studies. Now we use them along with Tapestry and our the timeline work. The History packages exceeded all my expectations! The Explorers pages were such a fun addition to our World History study and now the American Presidents have really brought all our work together in an impressive and fun notebook that we can show to friends and family to highlight what our students are discovering on our learning journey. The designs and quality are so impressive and effortless for me, the crazy busy mom, whether just using copywork pages or ongoing projects like our Nature Notebook and timeline. These products have saved me so much time and allowed us to really showcase all our homeschooling accomplishments in a fun, meaningful way for our family to tell a story about our adventures in learning. Thank you Notebooking.com!

I just had to share how wonderful and what a godsend this site has been for us.I used to come out here and print off your free products.They worked so well for our studies that I had to buy a treasury membership(we are currently studying ancient Egypt). Imagine my surprise when I opened my e-mail to find out that I had won the 2011 expo from TOS.Thank You so much for the exceptional products you produce at such a reasonable price.HS mom of 7.

NotebookingPages.com states, "When children are notebooking, they use their studied material or anything of interest to them to create a 'memory page' that combines their own writing and artistic work as well as any other element they wish to add. Their notebooking pages might include a piece of written narration, a selection of copywork, a sketch or drawing, some clipart or borders, photographs, fancy lettering, a variety of papers or sample of some sort like a leaf for nature study. The sky is the limit!"
This year I'm teaching my elementary-age daughters about ancient history. I've chosen a variety of sources to round out the study, and this notebooking set quickly became our favorite! There are many options to choose from within each category, ranging from the basic to the richly and colorfully illustrated, from simple layouts with a few lines to "scrapbook style" layouts. In the section on Egyptians, for instance, there are several well-drawn black-and -white illustrations that depict many facets of Egyptian life, such as farming, hieroglyphics, mummification, and basket weaving. My girls have simply loved recording what they've learned in their history study on these notebooking pages. When daddy gets home in the evening, they can't wait to show him their creations! They go back to their notebooks often, browsing through them and excitedly discussing what they remember of each page!
Notebooking is fun and easy to implement, whether done daily or just occasionally. This Ancient Times Complete Notebooking Set has greatly enriched our study of this fascinating time period, and I highly recommend it for any school-age child!

We have been using the State Notebooking pages since the summer of 2008...and we LOVE THEM. There are several different pages that just are not included in any other state packages we have looked at. You will not find a better resource anywhere else!

I just purchased the Mom's Tool Belt organization system. I am a paper girl. I have tried to use the computer calendar and it just doesn't work for me. Debra has several options to choose from in each organization catagory, I love choices. The graphics are fantastic and again several styles to chose from. Debra also keeps things updated and even adds new pages from time to time. I love the covers and spine that go with a binder. And...each season has it's own design. There are so many way's to keep this system currant and useful. Debra is so kind and helpful too. She really want's this to be a blessing to us. Thank you Debra! :~)
