Once in awhile a product comes along that you have wanted and needed in your homeschool, a product that makes your homeschooling easier and takes it to a new level of learning. In my opinion, the editable Notebooking Publisher from NotebookingPages.com is just such a product.

We are a notebooking family and use notebook pages as a way of recording our written narrations even in high school. I require my son to narrate every single book he reads in some way and notebook pages are usually his method of choice. Until now, he has had to put pencil to paper and hand write his thoughts on each notebook page. Not anymore!
What is the Notebooking Publisher?
The Notebooking Publisher is a versatile design and publishing tool for teachers and students.
Use the Notebooking Publisher to create your own notebooking pages, copywork pages, printables, and more!
The drag-and-drop editor makes it easy to add text, images, and clip art to your projects.
With the unique copywork tools, you can add appropriately sized lines to match your child’s current handwriting style. This tool creates both primary lines and regular lines (with and without a dashed center). Create customized copywork pages to compliment whatever you are studying . . . quickly and easily!
Using the Notebooking Publisher In Your Homeschool
Here is how we are going to be using Notebooking Publisher.
- My son will read any assigned pages in his scheduled materials.
- Decide on a topic to write about.
- Type the narration in a Word document (or other available word processing program). He will type, edit, and polish his written narration before placing it on the notebook page.
- Pull up Notebooking Publisher and go to the appropriate category of notebook page templates. There are over 6,200 templates available: Template Collections.
- Decide on a template to use and insert the text from the Word document. The notebook page can have boxes for sketches or images, lines for typing, and space for titles and captions.
- Clipart, images from the public domain, his own artwork, and photos he takes of his own projects can all be easily placed into the template.
- Print, hole punch, and insert in the appropriate notebook binder.
Using the Notebooking Publisher helps make my son more of an independent learner. I don’t always have his notebooking pages ready to go and using the Notebooking Publisher makes it easy for him to choose and complete his own pages.
As a homeschooling parent, I appreciate any product that saves me time. With the Notebooking Publisher, I have been able to make customized binder spines and covers in a snap.
I also always appreciate the value of a good homeschooling investment. The good news is that if you already own a Treasury Membership at NotebookingPages.com, you have full access to the Notebooking Publisher! This is going to add a whole new layer of flexibility to your notebooking experience and if you have creative children, they are going to love the ability to customize their own pages. The ideas are endless! If you haven’t purchased a membership yet, look at it as an investment for the rest of your school years. Once you buy your membership you have access to everything that is available when you sign up…forever.

We began a system of notebooking this year before I ever knew it was so popular. I love this style of teaching/learning and am so excited to learn more about it.
As my boys are in 1st and 2nd grade, we are just starting to use notebooking with our lessons.

This is a timely post. We really need to wrap up weeks 1-4 with our artist study. They have been writing notes in a spiral notebook or on 5×8 index papers. Today seems like a good idea to try the new software program. Thanks for breaking it down.

Can’t wait to start notebooking! This will give us a great beginning.

I have been having my boys notebook their quiet Bible time by having them draw a picture of what God is saying to them in the verses as well as writing what He speaks into them through the scriptures.

This is our first year to use notebooking with Mystery of History. So far I’ve been making my kids’ notebooking pages, but it would be AWESOME to have the Treasury Membership!
We use notebooks for science and creative writing, and *love* them so far! I’m still learning how to make the most of them and would LOVE to incorporate them into or use them for other subjects!
We love Notebooking Pages dot com! We don’t have the treasury or the publisher though. We’re getting ready to move overseas for missions and are trying to simplify the number of books we take. This would be perfect for that! Thanks for the giveaway!
We use simple biography and event pages with our Tapestry of Grace readings.
I would love to start adding more notebooking pages to our studies. We have done some notebooking, but not much.
We have only used it off and on for various projects. We have been researching it as an option for daily work. After seeing the Notebook Publisher Demo, I am convinced!
I like the idea of notebooking, but until recently my children had pencil allergies. The type-it-in feature is a dream come true. I am hoping my children enjoy notebooking as we add it in.
Not yet but excited to learn more about it!

We are doing kindergarten with my daughter this year, but we plan to incorporate more notebooking in the years to come! Thanks for the giveaway!
