I grew up reading the book The Snowy Day, by Ezra Jack Keates.
I went on to read this book countless times to my daycare kids, and now I’m reading it to my own kids.
There is something extra-special about his books.
All of them!
When I introduced my son to The Snowy Day for the first time, he fell in love with Peter and it was the first book that he truly retained and was able to recount to me in detail.
You can use these Notebooking Pages together with my The Snowy Day Unit Study.
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.
