I have been getting so many messages asking me for more information about Notebooking. I do plan to follow up with more posts about how we implement Notebooking into our homeschool, but I also wanted to share some links that I have found very helpful. The majority of these links are from Productive Homeschooling because I honestly find the site to be one of the BEST sites for starting with Notebooking, especially if you don’t know anything about Notebooking and are interested in learning what it is all about and why you should even consider using it as a tool in your homeschool.
This is the site that truly inspired me and motivated me to really jump into Notebooking as a daily habit over the past year. Debra is full of wisdom and inspiration!
Here are some of my own Notebooking Posts:
And here are some of my favorite links for getting motivated, starting, and continuing with Notebooking from Productive Homeschooling.com…
Debra shares very candidly about her homeschool journey and how she came upon Notebooking through a video right here. She talks about why the combination of Narration and Notebooking unleashes such a wonderful relational, memorable learning experience. This is such a beautiful way to share what children/teens are learning in their studies. Notebooking is not new. This is a timeless habit of recording narrations. Love how Debra encourages us in this video…
If you are feeling tired, burned out, exhausted of the grind of homeschool curriculums and methods that aren’t really working – this is for you. These are some super inspiring words from a Mama of 10 who has tried everything.
The WHY of Narration and Notebooking:
Here Debra talks about the traps that held her – “I just need to find the right homeschool method”, “I just need to find the right homeschool curriculum”, and “My homeschool just needs better time management.”
Can any of you relate to believing these lies? (I can…)
I love the QUICK-START guide, which lays out the whys and hows of Notebooking
What are narrations and how do they benefit the homeschool? This is a super detailed post covering all things narrations. (This site is seriously so amazing…!)
This covers the basics of moving into the actual Notebooking aspect – and also shows a typical day with reading, narration, and notebooking.
