Here’s some ideas to get you started
For reading devote one note book page for each book read. This can be written, a drawing or both.
For grammar and spelling write the rules as learned. Include examples.
For copy work use the Bible, classics, or poetry. Enhance with stickers or drawings.
For history include narrations, pictures, maps, and time lines.
For science include lab sheets, graphs, charts, pictures, and narrations.
For math include rules, samples, charts, and graphs.
It’s also a great way to keep all of those creative creations, just snap a picture and display scrap book style.
So give this a try and watch your children create a piece of work they can be proud of!
