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!
As a mother of a special needs student, I have found the Treasury Membership to be an invaluable resource in our home school. I love all of the options available and can usually find a page that works with whatever topic we may be studying on any given day. If not, I have the ability to create what I need. How great is that?!?!? Any curriculum can be enhanced with this incredible package! Our next project is to have my son create some of his own pages using the Notebooking Publisher app.
I just love the treasure trove of pages that I've found so far in the notebooking pages [membership]. 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.
I had heard about notebooking for years, but I just KNEW my kids weren’t that into taking notes. As we read history, for instance, I would mention things they needed to write down, and the response was moaning, groaning, and slow motion, then messy, if any notes. Last week, for science, I needed a skeleton page to label, and we had been studying the Explorers. I prayed, talked to my husband, and took the plunge. We purchased the notebooking treasury to save my time. I immediately printed off an Explorers page, a map, and 2 explorers pages each. The pages were met with colored pencils, immediate attention, and almost excitement. Even my 15 yo, who isn’t required with the younger few, sat down and did notes!! Lots of notes. They were engaged, asked spelling, dates, and listened. The 6yo kept up with the others, and had the cutest notes ever!! I’m surprised, and SOLD on notebooking ;)
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,
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!
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!
I’m so thankful that Debra has made this resource available. It’s easy to use, saves time and my kids love the pages. I’m also getting a lot of mileage out of Mom’s Toolbelt. No more miscellaneous drawer!
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.
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, because there are many pages with fewer lines--not so intimidating. The selection is amazing--and always growing! I am also LOVING the [LIFETIME Membership] idea, because I have always "wanted it all" and now I can have it!!!
After many times of wanting to take the plunge, today I did just that. I bought the lifetime membership, and I’m so glad I did. I’m truly blown away by the pages and topics offered. It has got me revved up again and ready to dig in with my kids. I’ve already printed off pages and the kids have ran, dug out books and began researching so they can do their fun pages. Thank you for saving me time and helping my kids learn in fun ways. I believe learning that’s enjoyed is learning that stays. Keep up the good work and may God bless you for all your hard work. My kids ages are 15, 13, 9, and 8. They are all as excited as I am. The best part is I can print off the pages we need and take them with us everywhere we go.
