How To Homeschool My Child

Cut Out the Busywork . . . try Notebooking

From guest blogger, Debra Reed

Before notebooking, our school days were chocked full of a variety of learning activities and curricula, but the learning was so dry and dull. By the end of the day, and I mean the-END-of-the-day, the kids were wiped out and so was I.

Do you have days like these?

How to Refresh & Rejuvinate Your Homeschool ... from

Notebooking will refresh and rejuvenate your homeschooling.

It opens the door for meaningful learning while saving you time, money, and those precious hours you currently spend (if you’re like most homeschooling moms) trying to tweak everything that you currently do to make your day better.

Today, I want to help you get started. Notebooking is a very simple tool. Basically, we just want to help our children get what’s in their brain onto paper using both what they can “see” and what they can verbalize.

I have been amazed out how effective this has worked with my children. Over the past few years, we have been able to completely eliminate the worksheet/test method from our schooling. We now use notebooking for just about e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!

We’ve SAVED time, money, and SO much frustration by using this tool. Now, instead of a trashcan (or tote that gets tucked away in the back of the closet) full of oodles of paperwork that we’ll never look at again, we have beautifully crafted and individualized notebooks full of their best work–their OWN work–their very OWN homemade books!

You’ll pull these notebooks out time and time again throughout the years, just like your old photo albums, to treasure over and over again.

To give you some getting started pointers, I have prepared a detailed description of how to start your first pages and how to gently add notebooking to your day. We still follow these basic principles outlined in this article with our children today. Before you read that article, be sure to see this NOTE.
