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!
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....;-)))
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!
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.
Last year I hit the wall in my homeschool journey. My children were frustrated and so was I. We were not having the educational experience any of us wanted. I shelved everything for a month and went back to the drawing board. I am incredibly grateful to have found NotebookingPages.com while slogging through the difficult ordeal of revamping our homeschool. I looked through the entire site. I watched the intro video. (I suggest everyone else do the same!) I signed up for the Freebies account, because while it all looked very promising, I didn’t want to spend the money until I’d tried this “notebooking thing.” Boy was I glad I did! I started a study of Chopin and Elephants with my children. They loved it! They loved the “neat pages” to write and draw on. My son who I couldn’t get to write three consecutive sentences, suddenly wanted to write everything he’d learned about elephants. They love using the notebooks I learned to make from the terrific “how to” articles that Debra has written. Suddenly, learning was enjoyable again. I have only one regret when it comes to notebooking, I wish I had known about NotebookingPages.com sooner. I didn’t try notebooking earlier because it always sounded confusing and difficult. Debra and her wonderful site eliminated that concern. I’m thrilled to have access to pages on every subject I could possibly imagine. Thank you for this wonderful site. It is more than worth the price of membership!
Since 2011 I’ve been using the notebooking pages for most of our kids’ work in history, science, handwriting, Artist and composer studies, health, and even language arts. Once a month or so when we have new topics lined, I just go to the site and download what I need. I love that the pages are so versatile – I can use them for narration, lapbooking, color or draw and then just compile all their work in a folder. The kids love that they can have options (instead not notetaking/narration all the time which can be taxing for a younger child). And they get inspired by the pictures they see – which makes thinking of what to write easier.
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.
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 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!!!
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.
I signed up for a free trial and I’m so glad I did. The publisher is wonderful – easy to use and limitless in scope. If you can imagine a page, you can create it. And, if creativity isn’t your thing, there are 100s of pre-made pages from which to choose.
