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!

Take a peek into my homeschool story.

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 ...

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!

I have 2 very intelligent young grandchildren ages 7 and 10. I help my daughter with their homeschooling on Saturdays when they come to our home for work in lapbooks and notebooks of special subjects.

They have asked that we work on notebooks because of all the great pages I give them to take home and work on during the week.

I have the dubious (according to my daughter) title of teaching the fun stuff while their mom has to teach them the boring stuff.

I have started giving my daughter pages for the children so that they can say Mom gives them fun stuff also.

I am so thankful for my membership. I have found so many great items to download and print out for the kids. My older children are a bit jealous. I taught in the dark ages of homeschooling (according to them). We did not have computers, the internet, homeschool groups, curriculum fairs or all the curriculum that is out there now.

Thank you so much for all you do for the homeschooling community.

The Lifetime Membership has been one of the best purchases we have made for our homeschool. The Notebooking Publisher has been especially helpful in igniting a new desire in my children to thoughtfully record what they have learned. It gives them such a feeling of accomplishment to be able to turn out a polished and engaging notebook page in just a few easy steps. As I have been preparing items to print for next year, I have been so pleased by all of the pre-made notebooking pages available in the Member Download section. I highly recommend investing in the Lifetime Membership!

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 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!!

My son LOVED having the ability to put the pictures of his choosing into his reports! We’re excited to build a timeline with these pages starting next school year. What a treasure it will be when it is complete!

Thank you Debra for putting together the papers I’ve always wanted! And for continuing to add more great pages every year! It’s so comforting knowing that I have a lifetime membership and I don’t have to worry about the computer crashing, misplacing the floppy or disk drive, and losing the original, because It has happened more than once!! Years ago when I was only homeschooling two, it was no problem staying creative and organized. After the fifth child, who happens to have major medical issues, and becoming primary caregiver to my parents who suddenly acquired major medical problems within a 6 week period, I just don’t have time for creative and organized. With NotebookingPages.com, I don’t have to choose! I can be creative and organized because you do it for me! <3 <3 <3

I love all of the notebook pages that are available through the LIFETIME Membership. This saves a lot of time in preparing notebook pages!

I recently bought "Ancient Central Americas." It is wonderful! I had looked and looked for notebooking pages or lapbooks that included The Olmec Civilization, and couldn't find anything until I looked here. So we used the notebooking pages as the center of our lapbooks, and they turned out beautiful! Thank you,

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.

We use your USA State Geography notebooking pages and we love them! I have used notebook pages from other sites for previous State studies, but yours far surpass any others I have used. These notebooking pages are wonderful because they include so much beyond the usual flag, motto and map pages. I love the inclusion of inventors and travel pages. We also love the various page layouts included for each activity, since each of my children are different learners. Thank you so much for this wonderful resource! It is great to have everything we need for our State studies available in one package!
