Getting the Most out of Notebooking

Anyone can throw a notebooking page in front of the kids. But it takes deliberate attention to use those notebooking pages for maximum benefit. As powerful as notebooking is, it can become busy work that wastes time instead of reinforcing the learning if not implemented correctly.
Notebooking Success • a complete manual for implementing notebooking in your homeschool

Notebooking Success will answer these questions:

  • Am I using notebooking to its fullest potential?
  • How do I know if my children are really learning?
  • What is notebooking?
  • How do I use notebooking to help my children learn and to remember what they learn?
  • What should I expect from different ages?

What Notebooking Success is not

Notebooking Success is not a workbook or a set of lesson plans. It is not a curriculum at all but instead a digital how to manual that teaches a homeschool mom the ins and outs of notebooking.

Jimmie writes in such a straightforward way. Her book really made me think, “I can do this!” I ended up reading the whole thing twice, just because. In eight years of homeschooling, my kids have never asked to do their schoolwork after school and on weekends. The tips in Notebooking Success had a tremendous effect on our homeschool.

When I first heard about Jimmie’s new ebook, Notebooking Success, my first thought was, “I don’t need that because my kids don’t enjoy notebooking.” I was surprised to find that it’s not notebooking that my kids don’t enjoy – it’s lapbooking. While notebooking can employ some elements of lapbooking, it’s really similar to what we already do…but more purposeful and fun!

Notebooking Success showed me that our binders, with just a little more effort, can be much more than a place to store papers until I’m ready to shred them before beginning the next school year. Instead, they can become our own personalized reference tools, keepsakes of the things we’ve learned and the places we’ve visited, and a great learning tool.

I love that Notebooking Success is peppered with nuggets of wisdom and tips for success. My favorite tip was a simple, but brilliant idea for keeping track of all the notebook-related files you have stored on your computer. I’m forever finding things on my computer that I meant to use with a certain topic, but forgot that I had.

If you’re looking for a way to encourage organizational, problem-solving, and composition skills in a way that can encompass every subject and nearly any homeschooling method, I encourage you to read Notebooking Success.

When Jimmie asked me to review Notebooking Success, I was anxious to glean practical ideas for our family. This was a tall order since we are a notebooking family with a high school aged student. This book did not disappoint me in any area. It gave solid reasons for using notebooking techniques as a follow-up to any area of learning. It showed the value of notebooking, the steps to build a notebook, and the methods to include all types of learning into one valuable and memorable notebook project. I highly recommend Notebooking Success to any family looking to start on the road to a notebooking style of homeschooling or as a resource for families already using this method.

Clear. Concise. Full of practical ideas. Easy to implement. Very motivating! Those are phrases that perfectly describe Notebooking Success by my blogging friend, Jimmie.

I’m not new to notebooking. My children have used this method of narration and writing for years in our homeschool . But, after reading Jimmie’s e-book, I felt a renewed passion for this excellent method of teaching and learning – and this old dog even learned a few new tricks!

Jimmie’s writing style is so smooth and succinct that you’ll find yourself easily reading all the way through the book in less than 30 minutes. More importantly, at the end of the 30 minutes, you’ll have all the tools you need to get started (or refreshed) with notebooking right away.
