Recently I was given a Lifetime Membership from NotebookingPages.com to review. I was pretty interested in this opportunity when I heard about it because we already do a lot of our homeschooling with journal pages and these note booking pages are so similar in theory and application. Using note booking, or journal like pages, in your homeschool is a great way to make learning more meaningful to your learners!
What is NotebookingPages.com?
|Python pages were a big hit!|
Through using NotebookingPages.com's pages, kids are able to receive or pick a subject matter, do their learning and then have some where to record their learning in a fun and stress-free way. They take ownership of their work and enjoy the freedom of being able to express themselves at their own level. These pages make copy work and note taking easier too because it's simplified and based on their interest (unless you assign a subject matter of course). One thing we have loved with this type of schooling is that we can make the application (printable) have more writing pages for those that like to write and more drawing pages for little ones and/or dylesxic spectrum kids.
NoteBookingPages.com has pages on EVERY SUBJECT! Seriously, it would take forever to just sit and look at everything! Good thing their site is searchable! Anyways, they have early learners - highschool pages. Pages on learning the alphabet and hand-writing, pages on composers and music, pages on art, science, and history. They have pages on famous people, nature, blank pages, Bible, character study, etc, etc, etc! They even have lapbooking pages and "3D" pages. For reals, there are just sooooooo many pages!
How we used it:
I looked over the site and found some things I thought my 10-15 year old kids may like and asked them to pick. We then downloaded and printed the following:
- Johann Sebastian Back (Jo14b, C12b)
- Reptiles: Pythons (A10b, J9b, K12b)
- Emily Dickenson (H15g, M13g, CH11g)
- Nature study: Birds (H15g, M13g, CH11g)
- Bible pages: 7 days of creation (J9b, A10b, K12b)
- Memorial Day (all)
|M13 doing research and writing|
Because this is a familiar system for my kids, they were able to complete these pages without me and in their entirety. This is SO NICE!!!! It was fun watching them do their studying and seeing their end results! My husband was pretty impressed that the older boys chose to spend part of a Saturday doing extra research on Bach! But that is something I LOVE about this kind of learning! It's education and it just becomes a part of everyday life!
The kids all had great things to say. They liked the pages and thought it was pretty neat that there were so many different subjects and things to choose from. Some things they wouldn't have thought about on their own but they saw the title and their curiosity was peeked!
How do you get in on the goodness?
NotebookingPages.com offers a FREE sample of over 600 pages so you can try out their site before you buy. I highly recommend trying them out!
If you DO like it, then you can choose between two payment plans for the lifetime membership program. You could make a one-time payment $97 or you could spread it out over four months (Month 1 $10 and then Month 2-4 is $29).
This makes it highly affordable since you can use the pages with allllllllll of your kids for allllllll of your years- sweet!
