Welcome to the Notebooking Round-up, a list of the latest and greatest notebooking links on the web. It’s back to school time, and there are lots of great notebooking posts out there! I hope you have a few minutes to click, download, and bookmark these fantastic links.
All of you frugal homeschool notebookers are going to love this idea. I am already thinking ahead to late January and February when the wall calendars are super cheap. I want to remember to use this fantastic idea of repurposing a calendar as a notebook base.
Barb has graduated three homeschool students and is finishing up her last child’s high school education, so her insights are always valuable.
I hope you stocked up on those back to school composition notebooks because these two tutorials by Amy Bayliss are going to make you wish you had! After I read her posts, I stopped by Target to buy six more 40¢ composition notebooks. You can never have enough notebooks, anyway.
A very cool tutorial at The Pioneer Woman.
Daisy shares a free printable page to go along with a study of War of the Roses, Cosimo de’Medici, and Ferdinand, Isabella, & The Spanish Inquisition.
This printable freebie from Maureen at Spell Outloud is for the younger crowd. Practice writing and dialing (actually now we press, don’t we?) the number. This would make an attractive way to post emergency numbers on the refrigerator or memo board, too.

Julie at Butterflies & Barefoot Lasses shares how she rescued a printing problem and proves again that you don’t need fancy notebooking pages to do notebooking.
The Crafty Classroom is just overflowing with freebies! It seems that Valerie is working on a large series of free writing resources. Her informational (expository) writing pages are already up with many more in the works.
If you want to teach your children about the tragedy of September 11, look no farther than Cynce’s post. She generously shares dozens of free printables.
That Resource Site has free printables for vocabulary studies in four color options. These pages use a “draw it, write it” approach to learning.
Lastly, I’d like to share an important link for those of you who make your own notebooking pages. Daisy received an email from Bright Ideas Press about possible copyright violations of their Mystery of History curriculum. The publisher made it clear that they do not like her use of their chapter titles or even the Mystery of History name on her free printables. In the comments section of that post, you can see some tips for making sure your free printables do not violate the copyrights of curriculum publishers. This is such an important issue that I’ll probably devote a future post to it.
