Notebooking is an excellent way to get your children writing.

I was really discouraged because my daughter who writes beautifully was in tears every time she realised we were going to write! We read lots of great literature and I know that my children are learning along the way and they were narrating beautifully- but I really felt that we needed something else to just "round off" our learning experiences and there is only so much one can do without writing!

At the time of both dilemmas, we were covering Australian History and Downunderlit made this fabulous Australian History Notebook available! I ordered the set and printed off a few pages ready for our next lesson.

I explained that instead of orally narrating, I had printed some special themed pages that we were going to use to record our journey through Australian history and that they could write anything that they found interesting or meaningful to them from the days reading.

We had no sooner finished that mornings reading selections when my daughter disappeared and returned with a brimming smile and two full pages of writing and wanted to know if we could do another lesson! Not only were we now all enjoying the process, but both my children are creating beautiful keepsakes and they are learning along the way!

If you are covering Australian History at all then this resource comes highly recommended! There are over 100 pages and there is such a great variety! Map outlines, pictures, crosswords, lots of different page layouts and I have to tell you that we have yet to cover something in our reading that I haven't found a page to use to record the event! Lots of thought, planning and research has gone into putting these pages together and its a real timesaver too- because all I have to do is print and go!
