Notebooking is a hands-on way to teach children about ANY topic! We have recently added many notebooks to our personal homeschool, and have found the methods to work wonderfully for multiple ages and topics. The simplest way to notebook is to start with a three ring binder and premade notebooking pages. Encourage your children to add drawings or photos to the supplied areas, and facts or thoughts onto the blank lines. As children understand the idea of notebooking provide them with blank pages for them to decide where their images and text will go. Add in minibooks and lapbooking elements as well physical items that can be taped added to the notebooking journal.
Our blank notebooking pages are great for adding some extra pages on any topic. Children can customize each sheet by adding their own artwork or clippings. This includes a set of Horizontal notebooking worksheets as well.
This is a set of free printable Notebooking cover sheets. I created these for my children to use as binder covers to help organize all of our notebooking resources. There are printables to insert in the side of the binder as well.
