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!
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.
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.
I have just recently stumbled upon this treasure of a site and am so looking forward to next year when I can put notebooking to work in our schooling. I am combing the website nightly and amazed by everything there is to offer. I am excited about working with the notebooking app to create our own sheets;)
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!
I purchased a Lifetime Membership and my daughter is only four! I want this program to be a staple in our homeschooling experience. I am so excited about the variety and quantity of material to support whatever interests we follow. I also look forward to the day when she will be able to use the site to her own design and interest! Thank you Debra for sharing all of your hard work with us, and making this so fun and easy!
I am brand new to Notebooking. I came across your site while looking for something else and have been completely hooked! Why didn’t I know about this before?!!! I signed up for the free pages, got a quick look at what you offer and immediately purchased a Notebooking Pages LIFETIME Membership! I am homeschooling 8 children. We have already started choosing what we will work on first…so many choices, so little time! Each child is choosing what they would like to start with and we will go from there. I just can’t believe I didn’t know about this sooner!!!
We are loving notebooking! Let me just say it has completely changed our school for the better. Now the girls are really excited to "do school". I was about to give up even though I knew it was what God wanted us to do. School was just drudgery. This has breathed new life into our home and days. How could something so simple provide such relief? If you can't enjoy what you are doing, then, what is the point? We are so happy to be notebooking.
I have loved having access to all of your notebooking pages as a LIFETIME Member. Paying for access to that was really a no-brainer for me. What a blessing it is to have all of these resources at my fingertips to print whenever I need....versus spending hours attempting to either create what I need or search for it on the internet. Your hard work has paid off to serve at least one family (although I know there are many more than just us!). THANK YOU doesn't seem like an adequate way to express our gratitude!
I’ve used resources from NotebookingPages.com since our first year of homeschooling. The basic lined pages have always been a staple in our days! With our lifetime membership I’m really looking forward to using the publisher in the coming school year. With 5 children at different levels of schooling I’m excited to be able to customize pages to their skill level withOUT having to re-invent the wheel, or page as it may be. ;) With this coming year being the first that we are foregoing a ‘boxed’ curriculum, I have faith that with the wealth of subject pages available here that I will not be starting from scratch on my own and I’m easily finding what I need to construct our units.
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.
