You have landed on the monthly Notebooking Round-up here at The Notebooking Fairy. Welcome!
All month long I collect the best notebooking links and save them for the first Friday of the new month in a post I call a round-up. You can see all of the round-ups here. I search for posts with photos examples, free printable pages, and how to videos. If it deals with notebooking, it is likely to end up here in the Notebooking Round-up.
How to Use Notebooking at All Levels is my guest post at Carlie’s blog So You Call Yourself a Homeschooler.
Creative Writing for Reluctant Writers is from Jamie’s summer unschooling series. I love her ideas, many of which incorporate language arts notebooking.
Valerie shows off her new binding machine and explains how to use it. I have a couple of different machines, and my daughter loves using them to create her own notebooks.
This Traveling Family Journal is a personal adaptation of notebooking. It’s a great way for the kids to pass the time while riding. Later, the whole family can reminisce over the journal.
Barb wrote a tutorial for making a wax paper pouch for your nature journal. This is a great idea!
Tristan uses a lot of notebooking. In this post about how she uses it with her first and second grader, you get to see real life examples of notebooking in the younger years. She is obviously getting fantastic results from the notebooking method. The photos make it obvious.
Heather shares the Top Ten Reasons She Loves Notebooking.
- Subject area notebook covers from Crafty Classroom.

- Francis Scott Key printables, especially for younger children by Mama Learning.
My business partner, Amy is a sci fi buff like me! At her post Homeschooling with Star Trek , she shares free Star Trek printables and proves that anything can be the topic of a homeschool unit study
