In 1st, your child develops his own Bible notebook. In the materials is a book for this. It is blank at the top with an increasing number of lines for writing a title then short summary of he Bible story. Both my boys have loved this. After you read the Bible section to them, they read it from their Bible reader and then draw a key point in their notebook. I also keep my child's phonics papers and Proverbs sheets in a separate notebook...although some of the Proverb sheets we send off in letters.mommyintraining wrote:Can you tell me how MFW utilizes notebooking? Thank you!
In ECC, there are specific directions for making a geography notebook and a separate notebook for the other subjects. Each continent has a section with papers/projects for the countries studied. In the other notebook, I have sections for Bible (character traits and some pictures my children have done on the missionaries,) math, science and nature journal.
I think the notebook is what you decide to make it to some extent. My children love adding a page about topics they are interested in. My dd11 has done some beautiful pages on a country's traditional clothing because she loves this! My son enjoys doing a bit more with the animals found in a country. Someone here talked about doing more with the character traits. My children typically work on the pages while I read to them.
I will add that I did make a notebook from K with the phonics sheets and pages we did there too. I don't remember if there were specific instructions to do so.
Hope this helps! Molly
