So my friends and fellow reviewers from the Schoolhouse Review Crew are revealing their FAVORITE Homeschooling product.
I'm about to drop some magic on you.
Your homeschool life will be revolutionized. You will spend sleepless nights tossing and turning thinking, "why in the world did I not think of this before?"
Of course, I am exaggerating just a bit. If you do find that magic homeschool pill, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
That being said, I do think my favorite homeschooling product is pretty, stinkin' great. You find it in the most humblest of places. It can be found at a small-town grocery store, a big box store or the best teacher supply store in the universe.
It is...(drumroll, please).....
A SPIRAL NOTEBOOK!
Spiral notebooks are versatile, handy-dandy and CHEAP!
Here are some ways I use them.
I use them daily for Josiah's assignments. He has his own notebook SPECIFICALLY for his assignments. I can adjust and change what I need to. I can leave him little love notes (such as; your momma loves you boy...but clean your room!).
Ink in our printer is sometimes a precious commodity. We can be down to our last nickle, but my trusty spiral notebook is there to save the day. We can use it for notebooking, copywork, math review, journaling...and the list goes on!
We do a lot of read alouds in our homeschool. The spiral notebook can be used for a reading time doodle pad. In fact, Josiah has a spiral notebook specifically for doodling. This isn't to say that the starting lineup for the Broncos isn't written across the top of his current copywork page.
I also use the spiral notebook for personal lists, homeschool lists and scratching out to-do lists and recipes. I have purchased spiral notebooks for pennies. And you know how I feel about cute. IT MUST BE CUTE! A little washi tape and sparkly stickers can transform a simple, bimple ho-hum notebook into a work of art...worthy of my grocery list.
So there you have it! The Spiral Notebook. And my favorite homeschooling product.
