Using Notebooking Pages In Every Area Of Your Homeschool

 

We have been notebooking in our homeschool for as long as I can remember.

Notebooking allows my children to have a scrapbook of their learning. It allows them to express themselves through writing, drawing, cutting and pasting, and more. 

Notebooking can also be done across ALL areas of your homeschool. We have notebooked our way through history, science, and music - with sprinklings of Bible copywork, math notebooking, and notebooking with literature.

My FAVORITE resource in this area is Notebooking Pages.

Don't you love the image above?

We have been notebooking all about birds for the past couple weeks. With my Notebooking Pages Lifetime Membership I have complete access to HUNDREDS of notebooking pages. This Birds Set  includes 55 notebooking pages with primary and regular lines in a variety of layouts.

 PERFECT.

About Notebooking Pages 

Notebooking Pages has many facets:

  • Notebooking Publisher Web App - This is an area of the site where you can create your OWN notebooing pages. In the photo below I created a notebooking page for the harpsichord while we were learning about Handel. I simply typed in "Harpsichord" and found a picture of one online and added it. It was EASY!  My daughter is enjoying creating notebooking pages, too. The possibilities here are endless. Members receive one free year access to this notebooking web-app.

 

  • The Notebooking Shop - Here you can purchase individual products and product bundles. For example, you can purchase a set of notebooking pages for mammals for $5.95. Or, you can purchase Latin & Greek Word Study Pages for $2.00.  There are SO MANY OPTIONS. These are just two of the sets we have enjoyed using. There are many, many more!   

 

  • LIFETIME Membership  - You receive all 150+ current notebooking products, as well as access to all FUTURE notebooking products. Y

 

 

Our Favorite Features of Notebooking Pages 

Ease of Use 

The website itself is very easy to use. When I log into my account, I simply go to "member download area" and can browse all of the notebooking pages. I then click on exactly what I want and the pages are downloaded in a .pdf file to my computer. Super simple. 

Customizable

Using the Publisher App I can create pages for anything I want - literally. In the picture below we were working in Story of the World. I wanted to created a page showing Peru. I could grab a premade page of South America from the site, and then add the text "Secret of the Andes" and the arrow to the map. We put this in our notebooks.

I also wanted to make a sheet about llamas. Using one of the many templates in the Publisher App I created one in just a few minutes. 

Added to the notebook was also a Middle Ages notebooking page (which is part of a set offered on the site). 

I created a completely customized notebooking set for one specific chapter in our history text

Variety

As I have mentioned, you can find just about anything on Notebooking Pages, from blank templates, to subject specific pages. My favorites include:

  • Bible
  • Geography
  • Famous Musicians
  • History
  • Holidays (arranged by month - very nice!)
  • Nature Study
  • Science 

Custom Copywork Pages

I love that one of the new features in the Web App is custom copywork pages. 

Notebooking Pages has put together a nice video about this feature. Watch how easy it is to make a beautiful page of copywork. 

 

Notebooking Pages is my one-stop shop for notebooking. It is a resource we use DAILY. No more hunting for notebooking pages all over the internet.  It is all in ONE PLACE.  I love that.

 

*I was given a membership to Notebooking Pages in exchange for this review. I have, however, been a LONG time user and fan of notebooking pages (as evidenced by so many of my blog posts!). The opinions in this review are mine and I was compensated for my time. This post also contains affiliate links.

we use notebooking/lapbooking for history. Looking to expand it to other subjects.

This is very timely. My son just started first grade this last week and we've decided to try a bit of notebooking. He's done exactly one page so far, but I'm already impressed about the amount of ownership he took of that page. This is definitely something that we're going to continue.

I would love to win access to these great pages!

I'll be starting my first official year homeschooling this fall, so I don't have any experience with note booking, but definitely want to incorporate it in our learning!

We tried a free page and my son loved it!

May 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSara

WE currently do not use notebooking pages in our homeschool, but I am interested. My daughter doesn't like writing much yet so we haven't gotten into the notebooking.

May 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJoscelyne Hilton

This looks like a great resource. I would love to win a lifetime membership. Thank you for posting a video. It definitely is easier to visualize the possibilities with a video.

We notebook history and science.

Great addition to any homeschool.

May 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterVanessa A

Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway! We don't notebook right now. I have always been interested in using notebooking, but have been kind of nervous about where to start and how to do it. This would be a great way to do it.
Thanks for the opportunity!

I am new to notebooking and would love to win this! It looks like a wonderful, creative way to enhance my kids' learning!

May 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKate

I have never used notebooking but it looks like it would be a great way to organize our themed units. This would be especially good for my 13 year old who sometimes has a hard time organizing his thoughts let alone his work : )

May 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLeiloni

I have been eyeing this for years! I have made some of my own notebooking pages, but would love to have access to "professional" pages.

May 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterRobin

Thanks for sharing! Excited to check this out!

May 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

We are going to start homeschooling this fall- i'm still trying to figure everything out!! I do LOVE the notebooking idea, such abeautiful way to record what your doing!! I'd love to have this- thanks so much for the opportunity!

I used to have my kids notebook most subjects. This last year or so, I got away from it. My daughter enjoyed it, and she showed such pride in her work and her learning. Since we left notebooking, I have noticed she isn't as focused or as engaged. I am returning to this next year.

May 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJeanette

The boys usually make their own pages, but you do make this membership look very tempting, especially with the customization feature.
