This weekend I listened to a talk by Jimmie Lanley, aka, The Notebooking Fairy. I have to say, I really enjoyed her tips and ideas for notebooking. This is not a method we have used a lot in our homeschooling, though we have on occasion. It is a method that I have wanted to utilize more. Listening to Jimmie has caused me to reconsider how I might use notebooking and I am thinking we will get started with it once we are settled in Virginia.
We own a large variety of books….science, history, children’s books, excellent literature, as well as some textbooks. I am sure that we could put together some terrific notebooks with the materials we have. Pinterest has a wealth of information that I can glean from, too! It will allow all of us to get in some creative time each day. I believe I will even have a notebook, not sure of the topic yet. I will probably also spend some time compiling the kids’ old papers into scrapbooks/notebooks. We have tons of traditional school papers and crafts from when they were attending school, not to mention all of the various work and drawings and craft projects they have done over our years of homeschooling. I do think it will be BIG fun!
I’ll have to do some more pondering, but wanted to share my thoughts right now. Be sure to check out the link above. Jimmie has great information and resources on her website!
