I would like to thank you for your hard work and sharing it with us to save us time. My husband is a very visual person and loves to see the girls (7 and 5) work. However, it is not until he sees their completed notebooks that he understands how hard they work, how much they learn and how much fun they have. Again, thank you for sharing your "Treasures" with us.
I just purchased the Treasury Membership for my three children, in 1st, 2nd and 4th grades. My 2nd grader recently asked me what I knew about volcanoes (not as much as I'd like to admit) so we gathered several books and printed off many styles of notebooking pages from the Nature Study section. They had a great time, and already have a list of the next topics of study that they each want to do. Normally we would check out a book about volcanoes at the library and that would be that. This way, they practiced penmanship, learned vocabulary words, and have many illustrated pages that they have continued to add to. We all had fun and learned a lot. Thanks!
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 wanted more...
After the first 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 and college diplomas in hand, doesn't remember much of anything taught. When we notebook our studies, quite frankly, the knowledge sticks. Light bulbs click and eyes shine! We have a growing treasury of their homeschooling journey.
My mission is to help YOU break free from busywork, burnout, and overwhelm to find success and freedom for YOUR children.
