Homeschooling is one of the most rewarding, yet challenging things I have ever done. It takes so much work but is one of those things that you know is for the best. However, when it comes to getting through the mundane lessons, I can feel discouraged, drained, and worn out! I've been wanting to try something different in what we are doing and while I've looked at this site many times I never took the plunge until this review. So the past few weeks we've been using the Lifetime Membership from NotebookingPages.com
Now you might be thinking like I was “my child hates writing so this is not a good fit for us” BUT notebooking is so much more than that. Notebooking pages.com can be used for writing prompts but I presented it as a way to make art and for the most part it was well received. I allowed Mini to create works of art based on what we were working on. She was indeed writing but she was also drawing and that really got her interested in the work.
The above is an example of some of the creation pages that are available. As you can see yoi are able to use the pages so many ways. You can have your child draw and describe what they are studying or you can use it for copy work. The freedom offered by the pages is one of the reasons I'm loving this new way of of doing things. One of the hardest parts of homeschooling is trying to find a fun way to be sure your child is learning. Notebookingpages.com allows freedom and fun and that makes homeschooling easier for us.

If you want to study it Notebookingpages has a pages for you
We do A LOT of unit studies because it's not only easier but it allows me to homeschool on a budget. I sat down and looked through the site and compared it to unit studies I'm wanting to work on and there was something on every unit study. This allows me to make a unit study meatier and once finished Mini has a notebook full of work that I can file away for record keeping.
Categories for pages includes:
Each page has several options like:
Pages with or without an image.
Pages with a picture box.
Pages with standard or primary lines.
These different options makes it easier to teach the same unit study to kids of different ages and different grades. This is great for those of us homeschooling on a budget.
