There has been a lot of notebook love going around here. I am loving it too in this latest incarnation. The younger children all got simple bound sketchbooks just for lesson time. Unlike the millions of drafts and doodles on printer paper, only the very best work gets done in the notebook. Unlike the millions of pieces of printer paper, the work stays together.
Bound books for the win.
The girls picked up Grandma Chickenlegs during our long awaited first library trip locally. I probably wouldn't have picked it up myself but it ended up being a good read. Tess was quick to tell me the story had elements from both Hansel and Gretel and Cinderella. We talked about story elements and found some printables. My heart isn't in printables at the moment, partly because there is no printer and partly because of those millions of pieces of paper thing. We ended up making our own simple pages including those things mentioned on the posters.
We've made a page a day since and I hope to share some more.
