What would you say the most versatile homeschool tool is? One of the most adaptable, use-it-anywhere tools has to be the notebooking page. This set of 10 FREE blank notebooking page templates is a great way to get started.
Not sure how to use notebooking pages? Here are ten fun ways you can try in your homeschool!
1.) Have your child write a final draft of a paper on them. Let them illustrate the boxes with drawings, magazine cut-outs, etc. on the notebooking pages.
2.) Attach samples from nature walks to the pages, write about the walk, and cover the page with a protective sleeve.
3.) Attach a swatch from a sewing project and write about the project or draw a picture of the finished piece.
4.) Turn them into a newspaper-style project and have students write and illustrate articles on any number of topics.
5.) Write a research question on the top of each notebooking page and have the child record what they discover.
6.) Write a vocabulary word on the top of the page. Have the student write the definition beneath it and then write several sentences using the word.
7.) Have your child record the steps of a science experiment and attach a photo of each step.
8.) Use the notebooking pages as a tool to help your child record key information about characters in a book or play.
9.) Ask your student to record something they learn each day on a page, creating a keepsake of your homeschooling year.
10.) Use the pages to create a detailed timeline of an event or period your student is studying in history. By recording a single date and fact per page, they can create a timeline notebook that takes them through the topic one fact at a time.
