I WANTED THEM TO ENJOY LEARNING.
I was the worn-out, stressed and busy homeschooler.
Homeschooling wasn't working out like I envisioned. I felt like a slave to the curriculum. Each day I pushed myself and the kids through the lessons, but ended up feeling like a failure whether we finished or not.
After 6 years of suffering schooling this way, I found new tools that helped me shift my mindset, cut the busywork from our day, and confidently take the reigns of our homeschool. Learning became more engaging, more effective, more enjoyable and easier.
At ProductiveHomeschooling.com, I come alongside you, not as an expert, but as an experienced friend and homeschooler of 20 years, to share what I've learned and the tools I've created to help you become a more confident, relaxed and productive homeschooler.

It has allowed me to have another area of rest!
Thank you for your program. It has allowed me to have another area of rest! My kiddos are self directed in their written narration but are still so very proud to show me their work!
...we started using Mystery of History and Apologia Science and found that notebooking worked great with both of them.
We started out with just doing notebooking for small projects and for the occasional handwriting exercise. I used to think it was one of those areas that our family didn't have time for or could afford. Then we started using Mystery of History and Apologia Science and found that notebooking worked great with both of them. I truly believe that my children have enjoyed both of those subjects more and have learned more than they ever would have if we had only followed the "traditional" textbook approach. Thank you for making the learning experience fun!
...they can’t wait until the end of the day to share with daddy what they have been learning!
I initially signed up for the freebies to “test the waters” of notebooking. Wow! It has transformed our days!! My kiddos are excited to write (what?!) and seem to really be retaining what they are learning. They are so enthusiastic about their work and to top it off they can’t wait until the end of the day to share with daddy what they have been learning! I’m sold! We are now Lifetime Members! Thank You Debra!!
These pages have saved me so much time over the years...
I’m a homeschooling mom of 4 children who are various ages. One child has moderate/severe ADHD. We’ve tried various ways of learning and found that notebooking and lapbooking was the most successful and the best received. We’ve been using these wonderful notebooking pages for years! Each time we begin a new unit, I simply log in to print the needed pages and we are on our way to another great learning adventure. These pages have saved me so much time over the years and I am truly grateful for all of your efforts. I always recommend these pages to friends and family!
Thank you for saving me time and helping my kids learn in fun ways.
After many times of wanting to take the plunge, today I did just that. I bought the lifetime membership, and I’m so glad I did. I’m truly blown away by the pages and topics offered. It has got me revved up again and ready to dig in with my kids. I’ve already printed off pages and the kids have ran, dug out books and began researching so they can do their fun pages. Thank you for saving me time and helping my kids learn in fun ways. I believe learning that’s enjoyed is learning that stays. Keep up the good work and may God bless you for all your hard work. My kids ages are 15, 13, 9, and 8. They are all as excited as I am. The best part is I can print off the pages we need and take them with us everywhere we go.
My children were becoming masters of the material we studied!
I wish I could remember how I was initially introduced to notebooking. I believe I Providentially stumbled upon this website for it has been the springboard for major changes in our home.
After almost a decade of homeschooling, I knew what I wanted our schooling to look like, but at the same time I knew it was looking less and less like my vision. When I discovered these notebooking pages, I decided to use the freebies offered to try it out with my children. They didn't really notice a difference at first, so I began substituting some of our "independent" work with more notebooking pages. I was so pleased with the outcome. My children were becoming masters of the material we studied!
I was sold! I purchased the Notebooking Pages Membership during the Fall Sale and took advantage of the other bonuses offered. I asked for the Epi Kardia curriculum for Christmas and was again very pleased.
My children were not as optimistic as I was about starting "another new curriculum." I was so pleased yesterday to hear my oldest son comment, "Is this what we're going to do more of? This is really fun!" I am now spending time reading all those wonderful books with my children, exploring the volumes of creative notebooking pages for ways to express what we've learned, and sharing it all with excitement to Daddy when he comes home. What a blessing this has been for our family.
The key to our successful transition to notebooking was the wonderfully helpful emails that I received the first couple weeks after my registration on the website. Each email walked me through the process of incorporating these into our schooling. Without that I would have been too overwhelmed to know where to start. Instead it was an exciting process and a gradual (more permanent) transition.
Thank you again for blessing our family!
This site has given me so many options. It has also enabled me to have more fun time with her and her brothers and not be so stressed over planning.
I was thrilled to find your site. I had been searching for different ideas to use with my daughter that are more creative. This site has given me so many options. It has also enabled me to have more fun time with her and her brothers and not be so stressed over planning. As a lifetime member I love the fact that future updates are included with no additional charge. I am getting ready to start the Colonial times with her and focus on the Revolutionary War so that she can understand why we have the freedoms we do today and why it is important to ensure that her children have them as well.
