All of these resources can be found in the 2015 iHomeschool Network Omnibus

Notebooking Pages

Have you fallen in love with notebooking pages like I have?  If you are not already familiar with the concept, notebooking pages are a simple, attractive way for your child to show what they know!

Here  are some great options:

  1. 100+ Notebooking Page Templates - These are generic and ready to use with whatever topic you are covering!
  2. Science Notebooking Pages - Ready to go for whatever science topic you are studying!
  3. Geography Notebooking Pages - Includes blank maps for each continent.  Lots of room for your child to write everything they have learned!
  4. 50+ Language Arts Notebooking Pages - Everything you need to help your child understand the elements of a story (plus lots more).
  5. Tornadoes Lapbook - OK, so this isn't a set of notebooking pages, but it's too good to not mention.  Lapbooks are another great way for students to gather information and show what they have learned.
  6. Wildflower Notebooking Pages - These gorgeous pages are almost too pretty to take along on your nature walk!  They are also too pretty not to use.  Just print out more if you get too much dirt on them ;)
Not sure how to use notebooking pages to their fullest extent?  The eBook, Notebooking Success, will teach you how to use notebooking for every subject, no matter what age your child is!
