I have JK Rowling to thank for my daughter's love of reading. No matter your thoughts about the Harry Potter series, JK Rowling has inspired a GENERATION of children to read.
When we made the decision to ditch the ideal of public school, the very first thing my then 8 year daughter did was READ. She read the entire Harry Potter series within the first two weeks of homeschool. It was a glorious time of deschooling and wonder in our home.
I decided to take her love of Harry Potter and turn it into a little more... read on to see what we did and to download free notebooking pages at the end of the post.
JK Rowling Biographies
We decided to learn a little more about the author:
We also found a wonderful Harry Potter vocabulary book! You can learn over 3,000 words from all seven of the Harry Potter books.

Harry and Friends Notebooking Pages
Whenever we approach a new study in our homeschool, I like to see if there are notebooking pages available. I had a hard time finding specific Harry Potter pages that fit our needs, so we created our own.
Harry & Friends Notebooking Pages were created specifically for my children. I never wanted to immerse myself in the world of Harry Potter. I had tried to read the first book when it first came out, and I have to admit I DID NOT LIKE IT.
I am so very glad, however, that my daughter picked them up. The sense of imagination, suspense, drama, and overall fantasy captivated me as I saw them through her eyes. I'm so happy to share in this world with my children now.
Please enjoy these in your homeschool. They include copywork, alphabetizing, grammar exercises, drawing, and more.
