Hands-On Literature and Reading Notebooking Pages

Interactive notebooking pages can help children keep track of what they read and their thoughts about it.

This eight-page download lovingly created by Shell from Thinking Love, No Twaddle blog is designed to help children track what they read or audio books they listen to by using notebooking sheets with distinct sections as well as illustrations of book covers.

Space has been left to glue in book cover pieces.  Some titles are included in this educational download to get you started. Art loving learners could also draw in their own version of book covers, the author, or even a favorite scene from the book.

This is a very tangible and fun way to track reading progress for a variety of subjects like religion, science, history, or nature study.   

You can download this Literature and Reading Notebooking Pages pack now. 

To see all the resources that Shell has created and so willingly shared with us all, visit her Thinking Love, No Twaddle contributor page on our website.

The nine-page resource serves to share world history as well as Catholic events from the 1800s with a running list of historical events - including the birth or death of specific saints, apparitions from our Blessed Mother, and more.

There are some very neat features in this resource.

-Catholic events are highlighted in blue.
-Beautiful artwork is used in the backgrounds of many of the pages.
-A blank page is included for other events you may want to include immediately before or after the 19th Century.

This could serve as a wonderful addition to any history study or program.

F3 Folder Lapbook Style Lesson on the Blessed Virgin Mary

The Blessed Virgin Mary is the Mother of Jesus. She is a powerful intercessor and as Jesus stated from the cross, she is our mother too. She was born sinless of the Immaculate Conception, and next to Jesus, she is the most perfect example of humanity that God ever created on Earth. She gives nothing less than an awesome example, of how we should live a joyful, obedient and charitable life for love of God. This F3 Folder about the Blessed Virgin Mary is a good way to introduce your child or class to our Holy Mother, the perfectly virtuous life she lead and the powerful intercessor that she is.  

Perfect for use in your homeschool, CCD or religious education class, this resource is designed to build understanding of the Blessed Virgin Mary and her role in the Church and the Catholic faith. There are five different learning activities and two F3 piece activities that can help you teach or reinforce your lessons on Mother Mary, whether you use a formal curriculum or one that you have put together yourself
