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.

...has inspired my children to learn, to explore, to be creative and to write!
What a blessing you are to so many homeschooling families! Notebooking is the answer to my prayers!
It seemed like our homeschool was lacking something. The workbooks were dry & boring or repetitive. I discovered your site a year ago, purchased a year membership & we started our notebooking adventure! We have slowly integrated it into our homeschool day & now we are ready to start using it with all of our subjects. It was hard to tell myself to put those workbooks & other materials we purchased out of site & stick with the notebooking. I can see the difference in my kids, they like school, they want to do more!
My children really enjoy being creative with their notebook pages. Notebooking is helping me to teach language arts to my children the natural way with out all the boring workbooks that sometimes bring tears. This method of homeschooling has inspired my children to learn, to explore, to be creative and to write!
My year membership just expired & I knew I had to purchase a lifetime membership this time around! I am looking forward to all of the awesome notebooks they will create in the future! The 3-D pages & the publisher look great! Purchasing a lifetime membership is one of the best investments we have made in our homeschool journey. Debra, thank you for all the love & time you put into this site to help the rest of us enjoy our homeschool journey!
...it can be used for so many different subjects and presentation formats.
I am a former public school teacher of 13 years. When I began homeschooling my children 2 years ago, I desperately wanted to find something that could help me create the kind of notebooks and folder books that I used with my public school children. I didn’t have to look far. When I found your site, I knew that it would be a perfect fit for our family! My children and I have absolutely loved using all aspects of the program. Their notebooks and folder books are filled with interesting and detailed information that they are proud to show to others and want to keep for future reference. I highly recommend it for all homeschoolers because it can be used for so many different subjects and presentation formats. I am very excited about being able to save information in the new teacher and student accounts! This takes Notebooking Pages to a whole new level!!
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.
These pages make our school day fun exciting and different every day!!!
I am a new homeschooling mom and I wanted to make our homeschool different than anything my kids had ever seen. In school they had busy work and nonsense questions that didn’t challenge them at all. Now, after a year of creating wonderful, engaging notebooks on many subjects, they now create their own pages and ask me to notebook everything from a recent family vacation (complete with pictures and drawings) to a great recipe we created (they are writing their own cookbook). These pages make our school day fun exciting and different every day!!! 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!
We benefit in so many ways from these pages and I appreciate NOT having to do the work!
We started out using the ABC books and have moved up as my children get older. We now use the history pages with our Story of the World studies. We use the science sheets to keep up with experiments with Apologia. One of the things I like most about the pages is that you can use them in so many ways and with so many programs! I love too that I can hop on and print out EXACTLY what I need…like the president pages that we used to study through all the presidents! Recently Debra added a program to write your own copywork sheets in CURSIVE!!! No more buying copybooks that “aren’t quite right!” Now I can make my own and have exactly what we need (with pictures too!!) I cannot wait to get started. We benefit in so many ways from these pages and I appreciate NOT having to do the work! 🙂
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.
