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 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.
I was thrilled to find Notebooking Pages. I had been searching for different ideas to use with my daughter that are more creative. This site has given me so many options. It has also enabled me to have more fun time with her and her brothers and not be so stressed over planning. As a lifetime member I love the fact that future updates are included with no additional charge. I am getting ready to start the Colonial times with her and focus on the Revolutionary War so that she can understand why we have the freedoms we do today and why it is important to ensure that her children have them as well.
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!
The LIFETIME Membership 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)
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 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.
I love all the different pages that Debra has been providing for homeschool moms over the years. It’s really helped our History notebooks to be more of my kids creations and that we can keep as treasured keepsakes.
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.
I am a lifetime member who is seriously in love with the notebooking pages and the NEW Notebooking Publisher web-app feature. You can create cursive AND/OR print copywork pages – NICE! There is nothing on the market that even compares or gets close to this product. I am still trying to wrap my mind around it all. It has been an absolute lifesaver and has become an invaluable resource to our homeschool. My daughter and I BOTH love the customization features of the web-app. The notebooking pages cover a variety of subjects and age ranges. They can be integrated into your homeschool day with very little if any prep. The pages are done beautifully and are quite impressive. Check out the samples and you’ll see what I mean. I would often check Debra’s website for notebooking pages I needed and ALWAYS found something that fit our needs. I truly appreciate her dedication to making this project number one. If you aren’t a lifetime member and you enjoy notebooking with your children – what are you waiting for? It IS worth the money. You won’t regret it. I know I don’t. The product allows your family (any family) to retain information from their studies in a more engaging, fun, and creative way. I found Notebooking Pages years ago through Currclick. I noticed that every topic I searched for led me to her website – she is very thorough. I wanted everything I saw! My daughter was very young at the time, but I wanted to make sure I had high quality materials to use with her as she progressed through her schooling years. I hope that I can create enough copywork pages this summer for our fall curriculum before my web-app expires. The price to extend the use of the web app is extremely reasonable, but we just finished building our house and the budget is tight right now. I know that if I have the funds, then I will most likely renew the web app. I wish I had purchased it when it was offered as a lifetime product last year. Dummy – I should have known better. Oops – did I say that out loud. I didn’t get to use the web-app as often as I hoped this year because we moved several times and life was just all out of whack. Make sure that you use the web-app free months that are included with the purchase of your lifetime membership especially if you enjoy copywork activities. My daughter is definitely learning better and retaining the concepts now that we use notebooking pages. It works well with any curriculum. We were using an online science curriculum the other day. My daughter asked me if she could create a notebooking page for the life cycle of the jumping spider. Umm . . . YES! She asked me. She also created a copywork page for the term life cycle. She is learning cursive this summer and I look forward to providing her with meaningful copywork pages that complement her studies and the books she reads. Okay, so I just read over my comment. I sound like a gush – oh well, it is what it is. When I love a product, I tend to sound a little giddy or over the top. The new feature amazes me. I am not an affiliate but I may have to consider it in the near future. LOL.
Notebooking Pages is our go to site for all our Notebooking needs. My daughter especially loves Notebooking Publisher. This site motivates her to want to create and learn. She is retaining more information than ever, and is even working above grade level. We discovered Notebooking within months of beginning our homeschool journey, I couldn’t imagine educating any other way. My daughter wouldn’t want to learn in any other way.
Though my daughter has always been a good student, she wasn’t an independent thinker when it came to learning, unlike her older siblings. She just read what she was told, answered questions at the end of a chapter, and took a test. Then we began homeschooling in 6th grade, now approaching the end of 7th grade, my daughter actually makes out her own schedule of what she wants to read and Notebook on, she has taken initiative in her own education. She now has an interest in History, Classical Music, Art, Literature, and chooses topics most kids wouldn’t.
Like you, I had preconceived notions of the “perfect” homeschool education. I spent a great deal of money our first year on material she never even used. Then when I discovered notebooking, we invested in paper, art supplies, a comb binder, laminator and a library card. She is a happier student, I am a happier mom.
I think Notebooking should be an educational law. I apologize for my lengthy reply, but I have become not only passionate about Notebooking, but a huge advocate. Your site is easy to navigate, and offers a wide variety of subjects and topics. Though we follow a Charlotte Mason style curriculum, Notebooking truly will work with any style or methods of teaching.
