I looked at a blog of someone on here who I thought might have samples, but she did not. A convention is good, but may be a long way off for you. So I will try and describe the notebook pages!Mamto2PeasinaPod wrote:I wish there were more examples on this site of the notebook sheets. I was looking over a nice state curriculum. I am wondering if I can actually have both and still make it all work together!
The ones for History have a top part that has a picture to do with the subject being studied, for example a picture of a Viking Ship. This picture can be colored by the student, but does not have to be. I bought the sheets for my ds8, doing ADV, and my ds6 & dd4 to join in some. They color the top part of the sheet while I read the story that goes with the picture. The bottom part has student lines for the written summary my ds8 uses this part. There are other sheets that have to do with the Nutcracker and various Historical figures.
Then next is the state sheets. Each one has the state bird for coloring, and stickers to put on for each flag for each state (I think a flag to color too?). The stickers are the state flags. Then on the back are various facts about the state being studied. There are 50 state sheets, one for each state.
I am really glad that I bought the student sheets. My children enjoy coloring them, and then they provide a place for the summaries. I like things organized, and the sheets are organized. I also have only so many hours in a day with 4 young children, so I am very grateful for the time and effort Marie put into these sheets and that I can benefit. It would take me hours & hours & hours to reproduce them and all of the information they contain on the back of the state sheets.
I hope this helps, and that I didn't cross any copyright laws in my descriptions.
