I knew I wasn’t giving my kids the 'best of the best'.
Mom of 10 ... ages young to adult
After 6 years of homeschooling, I knew I wasn’t giving my kids the 'best of the best'. I didn’t want them to turn out like me, a great student who 20 years later, with high school & college diplomas in hand, doesn’t remember much of anything taught.
When we notebook our studies, quite frankly, the knowledge STICKS. Lightbulbs click and eyes shine! We have a growing treasury of their homeschooling journey.
Discouraged or frustrated with your current homeschooling situation? Please check out the posts below.
These posts give you a glimpse of my path from doom & gloom to victory!
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.
I am new to notebooking and have loved the variety of pages here. The ones I have 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.
Thank you for your free spelling sheets. I will be teaching an SWR class this weekend and sharing your spelling sheets with the class and I'll also mention about all your other great products! Thanks again!
With 4 children in many different age ranges, I needed something that would be easy to access and put together without a lot of extra time spent creating something they could all use. Notebooking Pages has been just that! We read over the material and use the pages combined with some lapbook style ideas to create a wonderful learning experience that we will always remember. The Lifetime membership was well worth it!!
We just started using Notebooking Pages this year and it has added so much ease to our history lessons. No longer do I have to wonder what they are learning – they are showing me. They are proud of their pages and love looking back which works as a great way to review!!
Product: 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!
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.
I doubted this website the first time I knew it two years ago because I thought it just sold lined paper which I could make it by myself. I was wrong and it was a terrible mistake as I had wasted a lot of time. I should have realised that this website has saved a lot of my time. Therefore I subscribed as a Lifetime Treasury Member. Now we never leave this site in any subject. Kids love it and get more confident in notebooking with the growing collection available. Thank you Debra…
My husband had been out of work for the past 8 weeks. My budget for the school year was use to eat and pay bills. A couple weeks ago you sent a gift for subscribers and it was what I need it for my teaching this semester!!!!. The free notebooking products had been a huge bless in our lives. I had been buying in the past before this economic... a lot of you products and we used them all...God uses you to let me know that even in little things God is there. Like my milk last more that a month and drinking from it every day. The same miracle with My notebooking.... It is awesome!!!with your ideas, topics and more... THANK YOU FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS YOU SO MUCH.
P.S. I AM SORRY IF YOU SEE MISTAKES I AM LEARNING AS WELL WITH MY KIDS (I AM FROM MEXICO).
I really love notebookingpages.com. I’m new to notebooking and this site has made my life so much easier. There are so many different categories and subjects covered, I’ll never have to go anywhere else to find what I need.
