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 is not until he sees their completed notebooks that he understands how hard they work, how much they learn and how much fun they have.
I would like to thank you for your hard work and sharing it with us to save us time. My husband is a very visual person and loves to see the girls (7 and 5) work. However, it is not until he sees their completed notebooks that he understands how hard they work, how much they learn and how much fun they have. Again, thank you for sharing your "treasures" with us.
...I am just LOVING the notebooking pages.
I purchased the complete set of notebooking pages last spring. It was my first purchase from your site and I never buy things on impulse like this. I knew as soon as I saw the samples that I wanted this.
We have used many of the Alphabet pages, and we also use the Nature Study pages. This month we are starting a study on ancient civilizations and I am just LOVING the notebooking pages. The pictures are great, very detailed and realistic and they are perfect for my little ones. I was worried that we would not be able to use a lot of these pages until they got older (they are in first grade and kindergarten) but we have already used a lot of them!
The Ancient Egypt pages we are using now are just beautiful, and my children actually enjoy writing when they use them. I even use the copywork pages for handwriting and spelling practice. It is much more fun to do their work on pretty pages!
It is even neater now that you have made this a membership, and I always look forward to the updates. I can't wait to use the A-Z Animals pages, I know my kiddos will go crazy for them!
Thank you SO much for all of your hard work. I recommend your pages to everyone I know who is homeschooling.
...it has completely changed our school for the better.
We are loving notebooking! Let me just say it has completely changed our school for the better. Now the girls are really excited to "do school". I was about to give up even though I knew it was what God wanted us to do. School was just drudgery. This has breathed new life into our home and days. How could something so simple provide such relief? If you can't enjoy what you are doing, then, what is the point? We are so happy to be notebooking.
My only regret is waiting so long to become a lifetime member.
I have been using the “freebies” for some time. I have gotten a whole lot of mileage out of the lined papers and the science experiment papers. I have used several others as well. This is my 3rd year homeschooling, and although I use a curriculum, I use the pages to supplement what we are doing. In science, we use the experiment pages to take notes and create easy study pages. I use the history pages for the same purpose. However, I keep coming back to the site to find more pages as we advance in our studies. I am seeing so many exciting pages, for geography, anatomy, history that I kept longing for that weren’t freebies. I just jumped in today and purchased the lifetime membership, and my creative ideas are flowing. I can’t wait to use the pages in conjunction with our curriculum to enhance what we are learning, instead of just flying over the materials. My child gets excited about history, so now we can create a notebook of her favorite topics. The possibilities are endless! My only regret is waiting so long to become a lifetime member.
Busywork was destroying our homeschool.
Notebooking has been a true Godsend for our family. Busywork was destroying our homeschool. My daughter is so excited. She woke up and did all her chores and completed her notebooking all by herself. She was hovering around the family table as we were preparing the notebooks asking,"When do we get to start this?" She could hardly wait. They have eleven notebooks a piece so far. They are all nearly crammed full. Listen to this please, when we went to Wal-Mart last for supplies, she got herself a new notebook and things to go in it and came right home and made herself a new notebook, not candy, not Barbie, but a beautiful notebook that she designed on her own. Thank you, thank you, thank you...
...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!!
