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 cannot even begin to say how much Notebooking Pages has changed my life! Sound melodramatic? Perhaps, if anything, it is an understatement! After homeschooling our 2 older children through middle and high school and then starting from the beginning with the three younger ones (9, 6, 3) I was feeling overwhelmed and stagnant. I saw my children getting bored and frankly, so was I. How was I going to keep this up? I began praying for God to inspire me with a way to teach my children that would bring fun back into learning and would, at the same time, give me confidence that they were learning what they needed to. It was within a week that I stumbled upon (through God’s grace and love for his struggling children like me) Debra’s website. Of course, I did my own homework and looked into several other sites offering similar services, but NONE of them offered what Debra does; and to be honest, I don’t know HOW she manages to do it! If I tried to make my own templates I’d be so frustrated! (and I have tried in the past) NotebookingPages.com allows me to have access to everything I need for school and print it off quickly without feeling like I wasted my time at my computer…time that could be spent delving into books with my children and having fun. I LOVE the new publisher feature that will allow my children freedom to create their own unique pages as they get older. I have to be honest, when we first started Notebooking it was intimidating and scary for me…I wanted to DO it RIGHT…but that’s the magic in this kind of learning: there is no RIGHT way! I just think of it now like a journal of all the things we like to talk about. Pictures, drawing, writing, etc…my children LOVE looking through their notebooks frequently and I LOVE to see concrete evidence that they are learning. THANK YOU, THANK YOU Debra Reed for all your hard work (so we don’t have to!) and your excellent product!
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.
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 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.
The character training notebooking pages have been such a help to me as I have been trying to teach my children the character traits that we all need to grow in. With pages like “Sewing seeds of….” and pages with lines and spaces for pictures, I can adapt the pages to whichever character trait we are studying at the time. I can have my children write in “Obedience” or “Attentiveness” after the “Sewing seeds of…” and then we go from there. I also love the page that says “What God says about….” Then we can look up the Bible verses that talk about obedience an write them out. The versatility of these pages is wonderful. Thank you for such a great product at such a great price.
I purchased the Ancients and Basic at the beginning of the school year and just recently purchased the LIFETIME Membership. I wrote a review on my blog that you can read, but we LOVE notebooking pages. My highly kinesthetic learner loves to go back and look at his pages and it's a great way to "show what you know" without have to give a test!
I purchased my Lifetime Membership over a year and a half ago. I enjoyed the products that were offered and when the lifetime membership came to be, I hopped at the opportunity since I see the value of notebooking and my youngest is currently 8. I actually purchased the Notebooking Publisher and have really enjoyed creating pages for my children to use as well as ones for a class I taught at my local homeschool co-op. The publisher is invaluable to me because I don’t know how to create pages on my own. I love the versatility of these two products and am happy that I have covered in the whole area of notebooking for life. I hope to utilize this resource even more as my children continue with their studies. Thanks for such a great product Debra!
I was making my own notebooking pages for our homeschooling and since I purchased the LIFETIME Membership I have saved so much time. Thanks!
We loved using the bird/nature journaling pages this summer when we were studying 24 different birds!
Notebookingpages.com Lifetime Membership is worth so much more- the value you get is really priceless. For not so creative thinkers (like me) the notebooking options are amazing and the Publisher program is great for creative minds.
