One of the most detrimental things modern society has done to our children is downplay the role of the father in the family.
While in recent years there has been an attempt to repair the damage that has been done, we still see heavy traces of that in society and media.
The dad or male figure in sitcoms is still often portrayed negatively.
Along with this effort to downplay the role of the father in the family has been an attempt to emasculate men.
This Father’s Day, I challenge you to take a positive look at fathers and men.
In this Multi-Level Father’s Day Unit Study, we look at the irreplaceable role of the father in the family structure.
We need our dads.
We examine the effects of fatherlessness in history, and how that has an impact in our world today.
To go along with this unit study, or your own homeschool study, I am providing these colorful and masculine notebooking pages for free!
Father’s Day Notebooking Pages
I’ll admit, when we began homeschooling at the beginning of this school year, I felt like I was all thumbs and left feet.
I still feel like I’m all thumbs and left feet a lot of days.
But, that’s slowly changing.
In December we made a move to bring our oldest son home with us for homeschool, and that was the start to our massive homeschool overhaul that I can’t wait to blog about later.

It felt so different, embarking on homeschooling a child who already had 2 1/2 years of school behind him.
I felt intimidated and lost.
But through prayer and listening to the advice of friends, I decided that two things had to be central to learning in our home:
- Reading – we would read. A lot
- Writing – we would write. A lot
One of the greatest tools I’m finding helpful to helping my MERLD children build reading and listening comprehension is notebooking.
What I’ve Learned About Notebooking
At first, it seemed like Greek to me – but then I began to see how my children retained information better when they wrote it.
Also, I found that notebooking is much easier when you understand the steps and building blocks for notebooking.
A great resource for me has been Danika Cooley from Thinking Kids
In her articles about notebooking, she encourages moms to read short paragraphs and dictate short sentences to beginner notebookers.
From there you help stretch them in notebooking, by keeping notebooking just slightly above their ability.
Also, she encourages a lot of drawing, as a healthy and creative notebooking process.
