Literature Unit Studies Notebooking Sets

Do you love to use literature as the basis of your homeschool curricula? Are you looking for cross curricula learning and activities to go along with a great kids' book?

Literature-based homeschool curricula


These Literature Unit Studies Notebooking Sets were created for your homeschool!

I love to use real literature in our homeschool. I personally love lapbooking, but my kids aren't always so thrilled with it. Because of this, I've begun to use notebooking more and more in our homeschool.  Notebooking allows the kids a hands on way of expressing what they're learning without the craft aspect of lapbooking- which is what my kids didn't like so much.

I found, however, that when I wanted to use notebooking with a great book we were using in our homeschool, that I often had to use generic notebooking pages or create my own. Out of this was born the idea to create notebooking pages that tied in with the specific books we were reading. You can find the notebooking sets I've created here. And more are coming!

Notebooking sets for kids' books

These Literature Unit Notebooking Sets Include:

  • Explanations for how to use the materials
  • Ideas for expanding the book with learning activities
  • Notebooking pages that correspond with specific activities
  • Blank notebooking pages that are book-themed, but are open for you to use however you like
  • Some sets- such as Charlotte's Web- include blank narration pages, questions for each chapter, and vocabulary words as well. (This is noted in the set description!)

Who are these notebooking sets for?


Each set has an age approximation noted. But homeschoolers are definitely flexible, so you could easily include older or younger kids in your study as well.

What do other homeschool moms have to say?


If you want to extend the learning beyond one of your favorite books, this "Charlotte's Web" study is an excellent place to start! It's a thorough unit study with a great literature connection. The lessons and schedule are well laid-out and make things easy on homeschool moms to enrich the reading experience. Sara @ EmbracingDestinyblog.com
