How Does Notebooking Work?
Notebooking is one of the most desirable ways to help your student remember day-to-day learning. Notebooking has become very popular amongst homeschoolers as a way for home educated students to feed back about what they have learned. In general, notebooking pages require students to use what they have learned to fill out a page to be kept as a bundle and collected.
Notebooking can be fairly streamlined, or can even go so far as to be more like scrapbooking — paper art projects. Colorful pens or colored pencils and other basic art supplies can lead to almost infinite possibilities.
Many parents find that notebooking is a great idea, but feel out of their realm pulling it together. Many just don’t have the time. This is why WinterPromise provides a full line of notebooking supplies for our parents. We do the work for you!
There are three types of supplies for notebooking we provide:
- Our Premium Interactive Journals are the cornerstone of what we do and bring to life all that you learn.
- “Make-Your-Own” Notebook resources offer pages that coordinate with your themed study.
“Timelines in History” provides a blank timeline that serves as a “spine” for the other three supplies.
Timeline Figures can be cut and pasted onto the “Timelines in History” pages themselves
There are several types of notebooking things you provide!
Art projects your student produces that he’d like to keep can be filed in their “Timelines in History.”
Reports or other studies can also be added to the “Timelines in History.”
Photographs of special times you’ve shared as a family, or field trips you’ve planned can be added as well.
Any memorabilia about school or their studies can be included to add to the memory-making aspect of notebooking.
What Are the “Make-Your-Own” Notebooks & Premium Interactive Journals?
Our “Make-Your-Own” series are exclusive to WinterPromise and are informative, interactive, varied in their learning approach. Our pages aren’t like some resources where each page is the same — no! We’ve done the work to offer you many different pages that offer students chances to illustrate pages, write “newspaper” entries, create period placard signs, solve codes, create easy cut-out crafts, investigation pages, interviews and so much more!
It’s a great way to reinforce daily work and its a wonderful outlet for art-happy (and even not so art-happy) students. For students who might have to be pushed into writing, these creative pages offer a good option away from more traditional methods. For those who quake at the thought of being creative, the subject matter often lures them in before they know it! And of course, for those who love art, it’s a never-ending supply of great projects. As with all our learning avenues, you can use this resource a little or a lot to tailor it to your students’ needs and desires.
Our Premium Journals take the idea of the “Make-Your-Own” Notebooks and take it even further. Often at the center of the Themed Program they belong to, our premium journals bring to life all that you will learn about in your program. Filled with endless kinds of pages, bonus reading and learning content, projects, mini-crafts, creative reinforcement pages and more. These come in FULL COLOR and are often more than two hundred pages in length! These truly become a part of your family homeschooling experience and appeal to a every kind of learner.
The “Make-Your-Own” notebooks and the premium journals are consumable, so you’ll want to purchase one for each of your students completing a themed study.
