I was truly excited about Jeannie Fulbright’s notebooking class! We have dipped into it a little bit, but now I’m ready to take it to a whole new level! Here are some things I learned out of the class that you may enjoy as well.

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination-Albert Einstein

There are many historical figures that used notebooking as a way of learning.
-DaVinci
-Lewis & Clark
-Alexander Graham Bell
-John Quincy Adams
-Charlotte Mason
And many others…

The benefits of notebooking:
-Fully engages the child’s attention
-Increases learning & retention
-Builds confidence
-Grows love for learning
-Provides a record of knowledge
-Encourages review
-Encourages family learning

What you need to get started:
-colored pencils-GOOD ONES
-Paper or Journal
-Binders
-Page protectors

When your child is done notebooking through a particular subject, you are left with a wonderful scrapbook of your child’s education.

Apologia makes notebooking journals to go with their science curriculum.

This was a great class and I’m looking forward to implementing some ideas from her in my homeschool. Do you use notebooking in your homeschool? Please share how it works for you.
