What are notebooking pages?

When I first heard the term, I was like…soooo, these are blank lined pages like in a notebook? What is so special about that? And why would someone pay for these?? As it turns out, it’s something pretty cool. These ARE blank pages for your student to fill out. And they may have lines on them. But they are more than that! They might: be tailored to a certain activity, subject, or topic have decorations, pictures, or words provide space to write and also to draw (great for younger kids) Notebooking pages serve as a way to reinforce information your

Resurrection Day Resources

In our home, we don’t do “Easter” as it were, with eggs and bunnies and those types of things. We focus on Jesus and his sacrifice and what it means for us, giving thanks to the Father!

It was still great fun! In our dairy unit, we learned about how milk comes from cows, the process of bottling it, how cows live, and the many products that can be made from milk. We also learned about bacteria, culturing and fermentation, chemical changes and states of

Unit Study Planning

I’ll be the first to admit that I can get super overwhelmed when planning our homeschool year. Am I cramming in too much? At the right pace? A balance of challenge and ease?

I love the topical approach to subjects that are non-linear, like science and social studies at the elementary level. Unit studies are the perfect solution for us. I’m going to share with you the system I’ve developed that helps me get my ducks in a
