    Thanks Mom for sharing.
    I STILL remember copying notes from the chalkboard in Simcoe haha ๐Ÿ˜‰ I loved it and I still love to write and learn!

  2. I love this post! I agree with your wholeheartedly! I think that workbooks are convenient, but notebooks help students retain the information much longer! I homeschool my kids, but I make them write in notebooks – especially my oldest who is in 6th grade this year. I tell her what notes she needs to cover – and she writes her own in her notebook. I don’t want her to just highlight everything in the book, I want her to actively study it – and I believe that writing it down in a notebook helps tremendously! Also, I have her answer review questions and such in a notebook – in complete sentences! So yes, notebooks are awesome!

    • I’m glad this was an encouragement for you. Sometimes I’m so tempted to go the easy route with workbooks, but then I think a) I’ve already invested years and money in setting up a notebook system and b) my children’s character development would suffer – the most important reason really.

  3. We are notebook users too! I use one as my lesson plan book and record keeping for ourhomeschool. My children each have one for school work. It is so nice to have everything in one place.

    I also keep one for household management, and for my Lilla Rose business, and my blogging business, and for Christmas planning too ๐Ÿ™‚ They do help keep life orderly.
