NotebookingPages.com ~ A Schoolhouse Crew Review

Are you frustrated with your current curriculum? Are you looking for something fun that will help your kids learn at the same time? Instead of being frustrated and tied down, why not use some fun journaling, and why not make it pretty, or handsome, with the notebboking pages that are designed for them. The Notebooking Pages LIFETIME Membership at NotebookingPages.com has everything you need for just this!

Notebooking Pages LIFETIME Membership

What Is It

NotebookingPages.com is a website that has a notebooking page for almost everything, with new ones being added. The different topics are A-Z, Bible/Character, Famous People, Fine Arts, Geography, History, Holidays, Language Arts and Science/Nature. Oh, and there is even a section call Any Study. This is where you can pick and choose what you need for your homeschool if it isn't already listed in any of the other sections!

Debra, the owner of NotebookingPages.com, is a homeschool mom herself who wanted something better for her kids. When she wasn't able to find, she made it. And I am thankful that she did! This is our go to page for all things notebooking!

 

How We Used It

There is no right or wrong way to use this site, just so you know right now. You will decide how you want to use it, and that is what you will do. We have used this site for YEARS, and each time I find something new to use in a new and different way. Each one of my kids use the resources here in different ways and each one loves what they do.

Little Miss

Little Miss is busy learning her letters. I am able to hop on in and find the letter we are learning about in the A-Z section and we can use the pages to go with that letter. We love coloring the big letters and making the fun little books. We are able to draw a picture(s) of things that start with letter and practice writing words that start with that letter. She loves just having her own books to read to Baby Girl.

Ray Ray

Ray Ray is busy learning about birds and clouds this summer. We are finding out that the Charlotte Mason style homeschooing is best for him, and these notebooking pages help us to learn in a different way. I simply printed up some pages on the different birds in our area and let him find the information he wanted to learn about them. He is busy making his own bird book, and loves watching the birds with his book. We have also had fun simply staring at the clouds. The nature study section has a great collection of pages on clouds and we are able to write about what we see and find the difference in the clouds to the weather and how they both seem to change at the same time.

Moe Man

Moe Man is even busy with these pages. He has found a style he liked in the Any Study section and used this as a way to take notes for his government course. He takes one page per lesson and fills it full of what he is learning. There are some really neat little squares on some pages, and he is able to use those to draw what he has read about. This is a fun way of notetaking that you would not get from simple lined paper. I love seeing what he comes up with each day!

What We Thought

I love these pages. I love having that one site that has what I need to make a boring subject fun. That one site where I can replace the worksheets with fun sheets. I love that there are two different styles of lines with each unit and that I can pick and choose which one will work for us each day. The Lifetime Membership has been worth it to our family and we will continue to use these pages long into the future of our homeschooling days. If you have to pick one thing for your homeschool, pick this. This is essential in our homeschool and I think you will feel the same way about it in yours.

5 Favorite Before Five In A Row Blog Posts

I love reading other blogs to help me find new ideas when I run out of ideas. This week I spent some time reading blogs on Five in a Row and Before Five in a Row learning. I really love this style, did some with Ray Ray, but Little Miss LOVES this, so I am learning more about it. Today I want to share with you the top 5 blogs that I turn to when it comes to Five in a Row.

Before Five in a row

1. Jolanthe over at Homeschool Creations

This site has a bunch of super awesome book units. This means you can find a printable pack for almost anything! These units include a little bit of everything and make it easy to have fun learning with each of these books. Jolanthe makes the learning fun, and Little Miss never thought she was learning, always asking when she could stop playing and start doing school.

Before Five in a Row

2. The Unplugged Family

Cassandra has some great resources over here at The Unplugged Family. I fell in love with this site when I found this video on how to schedule your Five in a Row books and learning. While this planning guide works for everyone, a lot of the posts listed on the right side of the page will help those with older learners. I love the ideas that are shown with these books and can't wait until we are up to those and can do these same things.

Five in a Row

3. Delightful Learning

I love the ideas that are listed on Michelle's page! She has so many good ones and ways to truly enjoy your week with Before Five in a Row! She also has a blog post on almost all the books and how they enjoyed the books together!

Before Five in a Row

4. Forever, For Always … No Matter What

Jen has a great post on just how to plan your lessons with FIAR. She breaks it down so nice, it is easy to see why this is a fun way to learn with the kids! Now if only every grade was this easy, say like, high school!!

PlanningFIAR

5. Royal Baloo and Logi Bear too

The printables here!! There are SSOOO many, don't get sidetracked!! Remember, you came for the FIAR this trip, come back and plan the others next trip! I love coming to visit Erin's site and see what more she has added. There is always something there that I need for our homeschool!

Before Five in a Row

So, what are some of your favorite blogs or posts about Five in a Row and Before Five in a Row? I would love to find some more to read!!

Rowing the Summer Away

The summer has started. All the public school neighbors are out and about. My kids, have been out and about in the afternoons since the first nice day! Yet, we will be homeschooling through the summer. Why? Because we are going to get up at the same time Monday-Friday, 8:15 not too early if you ask me! And nothing fun happens until after noon, so why not keep the minds working and learning?

Rowing Through the Summer

Little Miss is ready for school. As in, she wants to do school. So I have decided to get back into our Five In A Row learning for her. There are books, there are worksheets, there are activities, and there is fun. Everything a Kindergarten child needs. And this will be quick and easy to do each day!

For the summer months I want to take it a little easier on the kids, all of them, so Little Miss is going to start with Before Five In A Row, moving up to Five In A Row by September or October. This will give me some time to get used to this schedule again, and will give her time to get used to having assigned work each morning.

Blueberries for Sal

So, what do I plan to do? The first book I want to work on with her is going to be Blueberries for Sal. This is a book I have wanted to read for a while, so this is my excuse to read it! I can't wait to see all the fun we can have with blueberries!! I also want to work on We're Going on a Bear Hunt and Caps for Sale this month.

Goodnight Moon

July I want to take a week off. So I will just be planning 3 books to work on. We are going to read a family favorite, Goodnight Moon! We have this book memorized and will be using it for school now. We are also going to read Jesse Bear. This is such a cute book and I am already reciting the words in my head! Finally, I have heard Katy No Pocket is a good read, so that will finish up our month.

The Carrot Seed

August. That time right as kids are bored with summer, we will be finishing up our Before Five In A Row before moving on to our Five In A Row books. To finish it up, we are going to be reading and rowing, The Runaway Bunny, The Carrot Seed, Corduroy and Prayer for a Child. We have read The Runaway Bunny before and love it. I can't wait for Little Miss to enjoy it like Ray Ray did! Corduroy is the classic that I grew up on and really want my kids to love as much as I do.

When it comes to actually planning these rows out, I use multiple different pages. I feel in love with the Month by Month pages over here at The Unplugged Family, check out the video when you stop by, and these weekly planning pages at Homegrown Learners. It is so nice to be able to print as I need them and start over if I screw up!

Do you use Five In A Row in your homeschool? What was your favorite row?

Spring is in the air. We have had some gorgeous days that have melted the snow here in Minnesota. With that comes the thoughts of all the spring animals and insects. What does this mean?

Our Weekly Plans for November 16-20, 2015

What are we doing this week? Well a lot, and not much all at the same time! Here are my plans, but they can change quite quickly!

RayRay

This week we are readjusting our schedule, finding the things that work for us. Ray Ray is making the switch over to a more Charlotte Mason focused learning. I have found that this is the best way he learns. Last year we didn’t “do” much, yet he taught himself to read, and does all his addition and subtraction in his head. I feel that if we keep his lessons short and sweet and have fun, we will excel beyond our wildest dreams. I am already being yelled at because the Pinocchio is too different from the original book we are reading out loud.

To make this happen, I have him working from www.allinonehomeschool.com and www.amblesideonline.com With these two programs, I am not spending much of anything (they are both free resources), and we are having fun again! That is all that matters, my kids having fun while learning!

LittleMiss

Little Miss is going to be working with www.allinonehomeschool.com for her letter learning. I am also going to be adding in some sight words from Sightwords.com and let her feel happy knowing that she is starting to read. Being in preschool should be fun and games, so I am going to make that fun and games for her.

MoeMan

Moe Man…my high schooler. He has been trying to go back to the “fun” years instead of these serious years. This week I am going to be working on letting him be more independent. He likes to have me “help” him, but I don’t want him relying on me. To help him along I will be writing all his assignments down for the week. He will have the option to ask me for help during a certain amount of time each day, otherwise, he needs to get it done, with a passing grade if he wants to go out and do his own thing later. I will let you know how that goes!

Adding to all of this, we are bringing back our morning time. We have had so much time away from this, I feel icky. I am happy to have it all back and running. I got our circle/morning time printables from www.onlypassionatecuriosity.com Heather has something for everyone over there!

WeeklyPlans

What are your plans for the week? Have any field trips or fun adventures in store? I would love to hear from you!

Fun-Time Phonics from The Critical Thinking Company ~ A Schoolhouse Crew Review

The Critical Thinking Co

Finding just the right phonics program can be hard. Almost harder than it is to use it! Little Miss had the chance to try out Fun-Time Phonics! from The Critical Thinking Co. and boy did we have fun! Yes, I said fun!!

The Critical Thinking Co

What It Is

Fun-Time Phonics! is a fun, easy to use and learn from phonics program. There are 100 activities in the 300+ pages. Each page is full of gorgeous colorful pictures that make the learning seem like a game instead of learning. And when you have a four year old who doesn’t want to sit still, fun is good!

Fun-Time Phonics! works with teaching the phonemes and by working on a mastery style of learning. The first 14 lessons work on teaching about the sounds of the words. Each different part, not just the beginning, but each part. After your child has mastered those first 14 lessons, you move on to alphabet, first the vowels, followed by the consonants. Finishing up the lessons, your child will be able to fluently read 3 letter words.

The Critical Thinking Co

There are many different teaching suggestions on how to add the critical thinking into your phonics lessons. When using these techniques, you are able to add new vocabulary, learn multiple meanings, the action of modeling and the physical act of writing. Not to mention the motivation that we all share. There is also a very simple tip to help your child maintain their focus while working on their lessons.

Other than these tips, there is really no schedule on how to use the program, you will listen to your child and see when they are ready to move forward of if they need to stay for a while longer on the lesson.

How We Used This

Little Miss has been wanting her own “workbook”. When we got our Fun-Time Phonics! book, she was ready to start right away! I had to simply read the quick introduction and we were able to start the first lesson within minutes! This was great. I was able to use this program when she was ready without a ton of prep work.

The Critical Thinking Co

Each day, when Little Miss was willing and ready to learn, or play, we would sit down and work on the lesson for that day. We made sure to stick with the lesson, sometimes repeating it until I knew for sure that Little Miss had mastered that lesson and skill. Most of the time she would catch on right away, but every once in a while she would need an extra day.

It didn’t take long before Little Miss was looking at words and sounds in a whole new way. She loved to pick out the rhymes she was hearing, and sound out the words she was hearing me say. I could see her mind working in a whole new way!

All in all, we would sit for about 10-20 minutes a day, 4-5 days a week. Each day would depend on if Little Miss was willing to be active in the learning (she is only 4 here). But each day was fun. She never got bored, which is a good thing when it comes to something like this!

 

What We Thought

We both loved this program. It was what we needed to work on introducing the concept of reading to Little Miss. She loved the pictures and would actually ask if she could “read” her book before bed while big brothers were doing their reading.

The Critical Thinking Co

This was the perfect program for a 4 year old and it was the perfect with the length of lessons and style of pages. I honestly found nothing to change when we started using this!

Have you ever used a product from The Critical Thinking Company? Which one was it? What is your favorite if you have used more than one? I want to try some others, so I think I am going to head over and read the reviews of some of the other Crew families, will you join me?

Reading Kingdom ~ A Schoolhouse Crew Review

Reading Kingdom Review

“Mom, can I do my Reading Kingdom?” “Honey it is 8 in the morning you still haven’t had breakfast!” “I know mom, but it is fun and I want to start the day off with fun!”

Reading Kingdom Review

This is how my mornings have been starting…taking a kid who fights me to do his school and making it so that he asks me if he can do it before he even eats or gets dressed in the morning! Reading Kingdom Online is the perfect way to help my son with his reading skills and he thinks it is just a game!

What Is It?

Reading Kingdom is an online reading program that progresses at your child’s pace. In fact, you are told from the get go, that no matter how much they struggle, you need to let them do this on their own so that the program knows what the child does and does not know.

Reading Kingdom is a program for kids ages 4-10 (up to a third grade reading level) that helps them with their reading and even some writing skills. This program requires minimal adult supervision, I found it easier to walk out of the room. This program works with your child and customizes to your child’s learning to help them on an individual level.

Reading Kingdom Review

As they learn new skills, your child will progress forward in the program, or stay and focus on a needed skill. They work on earning points and opening new pages in their passports.

As the parent/teacher, you get progress report emails that let you know how your child is doing, and you have easy access to see where they are excelling and where they are struggling. While you see this, there really isn’t much for you to do…besides watch the program adapt for each child until they get it and move on.

How We Used This

Upon starting this review, I spent some time reading up on my role in this program. I was quite shocked to see that I didn’t really have a role. I was told that I could view their progress and that the best thing for me to do was to step aside and let them learn!

Reading Kingdom Review

What does that mean? Mom makes sure they do 4 or more lessons a week, and that is it! The program works with their skills and adapts to them, so if I were to help them, they would get false readings and I would be messing up their learning.

Ray Ray took to the program right away and loved it. He had no problem working on 1-2 lessons each day. He wanted to start the lessons right away because they were “easy” and fun. (I think they were easy because they were fun!)

Reading Kingdom Review

Little Miss struggled with using the keyboard, and I struggled with not being able to help her. It has taken her some time to get moving forward, but I like that we were able to allow her to use an onscreen keyboard instead of the physical one. The reason for this, the physical keyboard doesn’t have both upper and lower case letters listed, and it was hard for her at 4 to know the match for some.

What We Thought

Ray Ray and Little Miss were super excited to get the chance to try this program and I was excited to see what all the hype was that I was seeing. Man, was I impressed with what I saw…after I got over my need to constantly help the kids that is!

Reading Kingdom is just what we needed in this house! It took the reading and writing skills of the children to a whole new level! I had to get used to not helping them all the time, but once I did, it was perfect. I realized that they were still learning, and they were learning at their pace. Not too fast, and not too slow!

We love this reading program and plan to use it in the years to come. I love seeing the kids learning and being challenged in a good way on a daily basis. It makes it so much more fun for the whole homeschool thing!

Don’t take our words for it…check out these other reviews!

What is something about Reading Kingdom you did not know before today?

Super Teacher Worksheets ~ A Schoolhouse Crew Review

What do you do when your child does not understand something? What if you need something fun to practice what you are learning? Where do you go for that? I have fallen in love with the Individual Membership over at Super Teacher Worksheets for just these types of problems!

Super Teacher Worksheets

What It Is

This is a wonderful website that has worksheets and games for preschoolers and beyond. Most of the “grades” are up to the 5th grade, but I loved the practice that these were able to give to Moe Man in the 9th grade when it comes to some subjects!

This is not a full curriculum in any way, but can be used to supplement any curriculum that you may have. All major subjects are covered and within those subjects, all major categories are there. You are even able to make your own extra practice sheets when needed.

How We Used This

I love supplementing when I want my kids to practice something a little more. I don’t like looking all over and wasting my time trying to find just the right thing. That is where Super Teacher Worksheets came into play. I would look at our lesson plan, and look on the menu, find the matching worksheets, pick the one, or two, that I wanted and away we went.

Ray Ray has been asking me for some time to have a color by number like Little Miss had, when I found the scarecrow addition color by number, I was thrilled! Not only did he get what he wanted, mommy got what she wanted by having him practice his addition skills.

Super Teacher Worksheets

When Moe Man forgot about algebraic expressions (really who remembers that stuff anyway!), I was able to find some simple worksheets that refreshed his memory in a fun, non-threatening way. When his double digit multiplication was missing a step, I was able to find fun, colorful worksheets to help him practice. (These simple things are a MUST for him and his learning).

Super Teacher Worksheets

And when Little Miss wanted to be like her brothers, I was able to add some letter worksheets into her daily work! There is truly something for everyone here!

With all the supplementing, I was able to find something for everyone to do in different subjects, so we are using this website daily. Each worksheet is at least two pages, with the answers included. When printing, I would only print the student pages to help save on paper and ink. I could always go back and check the answers on the computer. The only time this did not work was when it was a build your own worksheet. That is where the File Cabinet comes in, just remember to save your worksheet to the file cabinet before you generate it…I forgot this step the first time!

What Did We Think

I love this website! While I was given an individual membership for this review, I have my own account that I set up and purchased before this review. I plan to continue my membership after this review as well. This is a site that I have found very useful in our homeschooling. It is a site that I do use on a daily basis. I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

If you need more opinions, check out these other reviews from The Crew! If you do, or have had this membership, what is your favorite feature of it?

8 Must Try Tips for Homeschooling with Little Ones

We all know that homeschooling involves the whole family. The whole family includes those little ones you have also! While we all know how our children will behave in different situations, it is great to have a list of ideas to try!

 photo 8 Must Try Ideas for Homeschooling with Littles_zpsbrv7afdj.jpg

8. Homeschool during nap time

 This is one of the easiest ideas if you have the option. That means, if you are able to:

                1. Get your little one to sleep at a regular time every day.

                2. Get your little one to sleep for a decent amount of time each day.

                3. And finally, if you only have a little bit of school that would be able to fit into that time period.

This gets difficult once you have more and older students. You are not always able to get school done in the time that your little one is sleeping. But take advantage of this time while you can!

7. Baby wearing!

8 Must Try Ideas for Homeschooling with Littles

 I love this one. If you are wearing baby, you are able to get more things done while still keeping baby happy. However, once baby gets older, you won’t always be able to do this and will have to find another idea.

6. Sensory Table/Bin

 This is one of those double edged swords in my house. We love sensory bins, but they get messy if mommy isn’t watching. A toddler or preschoolers can stay busy for any amount of time from 1 minute to 1 hour. If this is something you want to check out, I have a Pinterest Board with sensory ideas on there.

5. Netfilx

I know…the TV is not a baby sitter, but have you seen some of the shows out there? Leap Frog has some great educational episodes and our all-time favorites are Veggie Tales! Little Miss LOVES the Veggie Tales and I love knowing that she can be busy with something that I love as well for ½ an hour while I help her brothers with something.

4. Books

8 Must Try Ideas for Homeschooling with Littles

If your children are anything like Little Miss, a stack of books will give you a good chunk of time to spend with the older children. This girl of mine loves to read books, and I love to be able to spend time reading with her!

3. Coloring Books/Sheets

8 Must Try Ideas for Homeschooling with Littles

This is a great way to allow the younger children to sit down with you and keep busy at the same time. I have a Pinterest Board of fun coloring pages, and we love to find Dollar Store coloring books as prizes for good behavior. It is especially fun when mommy has some time and is able to sit down and color with them!

2. Computer Games

8 Must Try Ideas for Homeschooling with Littles

Another one of those, the computer is not the babysitter ones! I know I shouldn’t leave Little Miss alone in front of a computer for hours, but when I need to help one of the boys for a little bit and she is itching to do something, turning on a fun game really helps! We love using Stafall.com, Essential Skills Advantage, and LaLaLogic for helping her learn while still having fun!

1. Include them in your lessons!

8 Must Try Ideas for Homeschooling with Littles

 Little Miss loves being a part of school. She has since day one. We do as many lessons together as we can. These are simple, Bible, History and Read-A louds are able to be done together with each group doing work that relates to their age/grade.

I loved reading Preschoolers and Peace, which helped me learn to handle our age range within our homeschool classroom as well. If my 8 ideas are not enough, head over and check out what Kendra Fletcher has to say about homeschooling with little ones underfoot!

Do you have young ones hanging around while you homeschool? What are some ideas you use that are different from mine? I love trying new things with my little ones!

S is for Smiling Sunrise ~ A Schoolhouse Crew Review

S is for SmilingSunrise Review

A is for apple, B is for ball, C is for cat…and you know how that goes. What if we took those letters we are trying to teach our children and use them in rhymes that talk about goodness, beauty and wonder?


Smiling Sunrise Review

That is exactly what WordsBright did with their ABC-book, S is for Smiling Sunrise!


Smiling Sunrise Review

This hardcover children’s picture book is full of beautiful colored pictures with short rhymes for each letter of the alphabet.

This is not a “homeschool” item, but could be used for your homeschooling of any age child! This is a perfect book for any child who is learning their alphabet and great way to introduce rhyming to your children. Not only will your children learn their ABCs, but S is for Smiling Sunrise strives to teach your children character development, values and virtues with each letter they learn.

S is for SmilingSunrise Review

Little Miss got to sit down with daddy for some reading time before bed with this book. She loves books, and this is no exception. After they were able to read it, we used it as part of her school, reading each letter as we learned about them.

WordsBright offers a downloadable teacher’s guide which offers you many different ideas of things to talk about with each letter. This guide gives you the concept they are trying to teach. There are also questions that go over the pictures, rhymes, comprehension and concepts. There is also vocabulary, and an activity or two to do for each letter.

Also included with this is a FREE MP3 of ABC song and sing along rhymes. This was Little Miss’s favorite part. Yes, she loved the book. Yes, she loved learning about the letters and doing the activities. But my Little Miss is all about singing and songs. This is what got her attention.

This is a very well put together book. I love it for Little Miss and feel that she can learn her alphabet and some good values and virtues from it. The pictures are beautiful. The pages are not dull in the least. Each page is full of color from the picture all the way to the border. There is nothing boring about the pages!

S is for SmilingSunrise Review

The rhymes for each page vary. I liked most of them. However, I am a poetry lover and noticed a few that could use some work. Daddy loved them all as he was reading and didn’t notice anything that I had. Little Miss could care less, as long as someone was reading to her!

The values and virtues that are taught throughout this book are wonderful! It talks about family time, the beauty of the world around us and everything in between.

Overall I really enjoyed using this book as part of our alphabet learning. I loved the pictures, I loved the concepts and activities and even though I thought the rhymes could use some work, I loved them and thought they were very cute. It was nothing that would make me like this book any less. And Little Miss loved the book, and song, so that is a plus here!

S is for SmilingSunrise Review

We are just one family that had the chance to review this book. If you want more ideas about the book, co and check these other sites out!
