My family had the privilege of trying the Notebooking Pages Lifetime Membership from NotebookingPages.com for this review to use in conjunction with our own homeschool curriculum. This is a Schoolhouse Review Crew Review. All opinions expressed are my own or those of my family.
Notebooking is a fancy educational term for keeping a journal, but it is also a lot more than that. For centuries people have been keeping journals and diaries. These fascinating pieces of history are keepsakes of their generations. They are just as priceless as a scrapbook or photo album. They capture a part of a personal journey and give clues to the past, how these people lived, and what their lives were like. Notebooking captures and records all sorts of things about the person who writes the pages: learning experiences, new knowledge, reflections, insights, memories, personality, writing voice, creativity, talents, etc. Notebooking also can include many parts like: brainstorms, mindmaps, sketches, illustrations, creative writing, written narrations, copywork, timelines, reports, lists, observations, drawings, maps, and photographs. Much like these treasured notebooks, journals, or scrolls of the ages it is very important to keep a journal of your own and have your children do the same.
NotebookingPages.com is is a online membership website that was put together by Debra L. Reed, a homeschooling mother of ten who wanted her kids to retain knowledge better and learn more than she did growing up. Debra has developed a number of notebooking e-books that you can access and use as a member, for your student on the NotebookingPages.com website. The notebooking e-books come in printable PDF format and also can be purchased individually. Once purchased these can be downloaded and printed how ever you like, meaning you may want to print all or just pick and choose which pages to print. Once purchased these files are yours to use as often as you like. You may use these within your family and with any classes you personally teach. These are great for grades K-12. Their subjects for the notebooking e-books have a variety of topics including: Art Study, Copywork, Character Study, Famous Men & Women, Geography (state/country studies, continental maps), History of the Ancient World (Medieval, Renaissance, Reformation, and Modern Times), Music Study, Nature Study, Science, Timelines, and more! Their library is ever expanding and if you have a lifetime membership you can partake of all that is offered plus all that will be offered in the future.
How We Used This and Our Thoughts:
We received the Notebooking Pages Lifetime Membership which gives us access to every notebooking e-book that NotebookingPages.com produces instantly when it is ready and access to all the material that was produced, downloadable from their paid membership area, plus any and all pages for as long as the NotebookingPages.com website exists. This is great option that only costs $97 total.

I am so glad we received the Notebooking Pages Lifetime Membership for our homeschool. This summer we have been still learning, but we have been also relaxing. The kids have been a bit board, especially the younger ones. I have been giving them these homeschool notebook pages to do as a boredom buster. It has been wonderful to just sit them down and have them do a few pages here and there of their choice.

We love the Notebooking Pages Lifetime Membership so far. We've printed pages from the Black Walnut (we have a lot of these trees in our yard to study) from the Trees of North America under science and nature, llama and goat (we have these animals on our farm) from the mammals under science and nature, Independence Day USA (because the 4th of July is so close) from the holiday under July, American Goldfinch, American Robin, and Bald Eagle from the North American Birds under science and nature, a Dandelion page from Wildflowers under science and nature, and a Sacajawea (we have Lake Sacajawea across the river from us, so I thought this to be fitting) coloring page from History Modern Times.

There is some things about this site that I thought was nice and some that I didn't like. I wish there were more pictures under the products the website so you know what you are downloading out before you download it. The product search button is easy to find (it is a black button with white lettering in the left hand top corner under the words "Welcome to your LIFETIME Member Center" on every page). But it does redirect to the search bar page every time you would like to search. There are tutorials, tips, tools, and videos to help with the notebooking process which is very helpful.

I see myself using NotebookingPages.com a lot in our homeschooling. When we do start back up with our full homeschooling I expect to be using these pages a bunch to get rid of busywork, boredom, and burnout. I recommend this for all who homeschool and need a change of pace from book work.
