Here are my picks for the top 10 notebooking websites (or webpages) in no particular order.

1. Homeschool Share

Ami, the owner of Homeschool Share, has such a generous heart. The teaching resources at HSS are totally free — the unit studies, the lapbooks, and the notebooking pages.

Lots of the printables are for lapbook foldables. They are easily adaptable to a notebooking approach.

If you have younger children starting out with notebooking, I recommend the literature based approach that HSS takes. With a trip to your local library and your home printer, you can use HSS to create weeks and weeks of homeschool lesson plans.

2. Clipart ETC

Although I do love color, I’ve always been enamored by the black and white clip art at ETC. Taken from public domain books, the clip art is free to use in educational projects. Each image comes in three convenient sizes and has been optimized for best output.

The clip art at ETC is great for children who like to add their own color to an image.

3. Notebooking Pages

This site is pretty much the grand-pappy of notebooking sites. Debra offers a membership program that is a great bargain considering you keep your access to the files forever. (Read my complete review of her membership here.)

There are plenty of freebies there as well, and you can always buy small sets of pages for a few dollars if that suits your budget better.

4. Notebooking Nook

Betsy is another notebooking queen who very generously shares printables. Lately she has also been offering tutorials for making your own pages, sharing her insider secrets. If you use notebooking, you need to check out Notebooking Nook.

5. That Resource Site

Odd name, but a treasure trove of printable pages — all free.

If you are a Catholic homeschooler, you will especially love this site since many of the resources are Catholic in nature. But Protestants (and others) will still find helpful homeschool materials.

6. Homeschool Commons

Aadel is the brains behind Homeschool Commons, one of my favorite sites. She hunts down fabulous public domain books that are perfect for homeschoolers. Not only does she link to the books and give summaries of them, she also shows us photos of them and often creates free printable notebooking pages from the graphics.

7. Jimmie’s Collage

Forgive me for adding my own homeschool blog here, but I do have plenty of notebooking tips and free printables over at Jimmie’s Collage. My daughter has been using lapbooks and notebooks for many years, so I’ve accumulated quite a collection of pages.

8. Pinterest 

I linked my own Notebooking for Homeschool board, but a search for the term “notebooking” will result in hundreds of pins.

9. Practical Pages

Nadene is a homeschool mom who uses the Charlotte Mason method to teach her daughters. She is very creative and generously shares many of the printable notebooking pages an lapbooking templates that she creates for her children. I love her work.

10. The Notebooking Fairy

Of course, I consider The Notebooking Fairy to be one of the best resources online for homeschool notebooking!

Jimmie Quick

Jimmie is now a veteran homeschool mom. Her daughter Emma is a student of the sciences at a large university in Illinois. Her guide to notebooking—Notebooking Success—guides you through notebooking: what it is; how to use it; how it fits a Charlotte Mason, classical, and textbook curriculum; tips for getting the most educational value from it; and much more. It comes bundled with several bonuses, including a small set of generic notebooking pages that can be used with any topic.

I would have been disappointed if your site was not included. Thanks for the insight on the other sites!
