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

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, they remember more. Light bulbs click.  Eyes shine! We have a growing collection of their homeschool journey lining our bookshelves.

This is not how homeschooling was supposed to be!

Our curriculum just isn’t working. My child hates writing. How do I homeschool multiple children and not lose my mind? I’m tired of all this busywork. My child’s not motivated (honestly, I’m not motivated). I need to simplify our day. Would love to add delight-directed learning to our day. My kids aren’t retaining anything. Want something to cement what we are learning. Need more variety in our day. Tired of wasting money on resources we don’t use. Want a more personalized education. Want an easier way to keep track of what we are learning. Kids can’t wait for the school day to FINALLY be over. Want something tangible to help lessons "stick". Want my children to learn, not just pass a test. Want my kids to enjoy learning without having to prod. Feel like we are not getting enough done. We are so bored!

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 ...

I recently just signed up for the lifetime membership after seeing so many wonderful templates to use for notebooking. I had planned on beginning homeschooling my oldest daughter next school term; however, my husband and I decided to pull her out earlier. I was ready for next school year as far as planning goes, but I really had to scramble to prepare the remaining of this year. Notebooking, interactive notebooks, and hand-made products are things I had planned on doing… I was going to make up most of these on my own, but then I found Notebooking Pages! It just made sense to me to use what was already out there and just create my own where needed. Anyway, we have already used the templates and the publisher (which is awesome) for a report on Jupiter. My daughter was so excited to do this project on her own!

We have been using the [LIFETIME Membership] this year in conjunction with Sonlight history, and it has added a WONDERFUL dimension to our history time. The variety of page styles allows my 6 year old to choose a page with blocks for drawing, my 9 year old to have one with blocks and lines for a little note-taking, and my 12 year old to have mostly or all lines, ALL with coordinating artwork that matches the day's reading! We also use the copy work pages for handwriting- each has their favorite style they are using to create their "book of quotes."

Thanks for such a great resource, at a great price- that I can use through the years with each of my kids!

We have been using your notebook pages for several years and I love them. I have six children ages 4-12 and there is always an appropriate for each of them.

A HUGE thank you for offering so many free notebooking pages. I have worked hard to make a few geography pages on my own and it turned out horrible. Thank you for offering you states outlines (geography section)for free, it has made our "notebooking the states" so much easier. You are saving me lots of time and effort. The pages are well done.

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.

The [LIFETIME Membership] is such a great idea. I am enjoying having the flexibility to use any page available. My 9yo son usually avoids all writing/drawing, but has no problem with these notebooking pages. Thanks so much.

Sandy in Ohio

At first I did not fully see what was available and I thought, “this is pretty good, but….” Until now, I have explored the website and I am amazed at the pages available and the quality and depth. Now there is the Notebooking Publisher which is awesome! Well worth the membership!

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!

Nature Study - The Old Schoolhouse Review

My children do not really like to write, but they are a little less reluctant with the beautifully decorated pages. I also really appreciate the selection of pages for history. It seems every topic we need is included.

I also appreciate the selection of design styles. As I have one child who likes to illustrate her writings I can choose a page or two which have an area for her to draw on along with her writing. Then for my son I can chose a different design as he doesn’t care to draw.

The state pages are great as well. They cover just about every important fact about each state.

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!!
