I knew I wasn’t giving my kids the 'best of the best'.

Debra Reed Owner, Publisher
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.

My mission is to help YOU break free from busywork, burnout, and overwhelm
to find success and freedom for YOUR children.

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!

The Doom & Gloom of Homeschooling (part 1)
We all have days (maybe weeks, months, even years), where we are plain worn out, discouraged, or frustrated with homeschooling. Homeschooling just isn’t working out like we thought it would (or should).
3 Homeschooling Myths that Trapped Me (part 2)
I have found that the things I am most passionate about are often the things that bring me the most overwhelm. Why? I tend to do everything I can to make my most passionate dreams a success and end up lost ...
Victory over Busywork, Boredom, & Burnout (part 3)
With these two tools, she said I could completely change the dynamics of how we homeschool. After six years of overwhelm, I was ready to try anything!

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.

Debra has notebooking pages for just about any subject, and they are beautiful! And with the Notebooking Publisher, children can type their pages, learn desktop publishing skills, or design their own templates. This was an absolutely innovative idea that has unlimited potential.

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 gauge of how much they learned.

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!

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!!

The possibilities are endless. When I purchased my membership last year I was at the end of my rope. I was burnt out with homeschool. The kids were burnt out with the daily hassle of worksheets. Then I found Notebooking Pages and I was hooked. We are using them with our current studies with classical conversations. We love this product. This saved my sanity in homeschooling my children. And now with the notebooking publisher, my girls and I are going to have a blast creating pages to go in our notebooks. And after watching the videos on the Book of Centuries and trying the template, I am super excited for this school year.

I wish I had found this site earlier! I signed up in the spring of 2012 and have used lots of pages since then! My five boys enjoy having ready made pages that are nice looking for their copy work! Makes copy work more bearable. My 5th grader is working through Intermediate Language Lessons and when he writes a story I type it into the Publisher and create a lovely page for him to add to his notebook. We use My Father’s World curriculum and this year as we studied Creation to the Greeks we found many beautiful and helpful pages to write summaries of Bible characters on in the free Bible pages. The animal copy work pages are just right for writing the morals from Aesop’s Fables. Anytime we need pages to copy memory verses or things from Language Lessons, it’s there. Or we can make it using the Publisher.


I am a lifetime member and recently purchased Notebooking Pages. I look forward to incorporating more notebooking into our daily lessons. Her notebooking pages will save me hours of searching online or preparation time. I have plans to use the nature study, history, character study, composer, and states pages so far. The list is never-ending. Notebooking possibilities are endless now with Notebooking Publisher. I can’t wait to find the time to try it soon! Her pages are beautiful and professional looking. It is a wonderful tool to make learning come alive.

I love the treasury membership to Notebooking Pages. It is easy to create notebooks for each of my children. They can pick what they want their individual notebooks to look like even when we are doing the same subject. It saves me lots of time and energy!


I am a new homeschooling mom and I wanted to make our homeschool different than anything my kids had ever seen. In school they had busy work and nonsense questions that didn’t challenge them at all. Now, after a year of creating wonderful, engaging notebooks on many subjects, they now create their own pages and ask me to notebook everything from a recent family vacation (complete with pictures and drawings) to a great recipe we created (they are writing their own cookbook). These pages make our school day fun exciting and different every day!!! Thank you Debra!!!
