Want to Use Notebooking in Your Homeschool But Don't Know Where toStart?- A Review of Notebooking Success From The Notebooking Fairy

I love using notebooking in our homeschool. When I made the switch from being a very structured school at home homeschool teacher to being a more loose and flexible, Charlotte Masonish homeschool teacher, I learned to use notebooking early on. And I have to admit that at first the whole prospect seemed a bit overwhelming.

When I started out, notebooking seemed to be this popular thing that many homeschoolers did, but nobody could really explain to me exactly how to do it. Now- many years after becoming a notebooking convert- I see the look of overwhelm in the eyes of some newer homeschooling mamas who are considering notebooking. So I was really glad to review Notebooking Success by Jimmie, The Notebooking Fairy. It’s a great resource that I can now point moms to when they’re first beginning to use notebooking.

What is Notebooking Success?

Notebooking Success is an ebook written by Jimmie Quick who runs the site The Notebooking Fairy.  On the site she gives notebooking tips as well as occasional free notebooking pages. This ebook is designed to give homeschooling parents who are new to notebooking a guide to get them started. The book covers …

~ Why notebooking is a great tool
~ How to get set up and started with notebooking
~ What notebooking will look like for different age groups- from 1st grade all the way to 12th grade
~ Some common pitfalls of notebooking

The book is a great overview resource whether you’re a new homeschooler that’s looking at using notebooking in your homeschool or you’re a veteran homeschooler looking to implement notebooking as a part of your homeschooling method.

Notebooking can be a great way for kids to record information they’ve learned. We studied the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and my girls recorded things were learning about her.

Why is Notebooking Success an awesome resource?

This book is a valuable resource for any homeschool parent who wants to use notebooking or already uses notebooking and wants to know more. Even though I’ve been using notebooking in our homeschool for some time, I found some new ideas that I want to try. I’ve been primarily using notebooking pages that I print out and have the kids complete. But Jimmie talks about letting kids create their own pages and gives the ideas of things to add to the notebooks- besides lined notebooking pages. I’m inspired with some ideas now!

I’ve always stuck with the traditional “notebooking pages,” but now I’m inspired to branch out.

You’ll learn how to encourage kids in each level to set up their notebooks, as well as how to use them. One of the things about notebooking that I’ve loved is that I can use it with the whole family. All of the kids can use notebooks, and what they do with the notebooking can be adapted according to their age and ability.
