Story of the World Volume 3 Notebooking Pages

Today, I’m excited to be sharing with you about two projects I have been working on! The first is a free, 80 page printable, and the second is my  brand new newsletter – more on that later.

Do you use Story of the World in your homeschool? We are now on our third year of using Story of the World, and we LOVE it! It is so well written, engaging, and has been a great education for both my children and myself! Our history lessons have always included discussion and narration of the material, and my daughter now enjoys looking over her history notebook and reviewing all that she has learned.

For the first two years, I wrote her narrations  down for her and then had her illustrate them. She used to be quite resistant to writing, and I’m so glad that I a) didn’t require her to write much (and thus quench her love for the subject) and b) wrote her narrations down for her so that she could re-read them. She truly loves history, and is so much more knowledgable than I ever was (and maybe even am)!

But as she is increasing in skill and maturity, I have been gently urging her on to more independence in her work — and she has recently taken over writing her own narrations, without a word of complaint! She’s quite pleased with these narration pages I created for her, and thinks they are a great improvement on the plain lined paper we were using previously.

    I would LOVE to do something like this but my daughter’s narrations are SOOOOO long. The amount of detail that she recalls is amazing. I wonder if it would be beneficial for her to summarize the text enough to fit on one page, or if that’s defeating the purpose of careful attention to the entire reading. Maybe I could try this with just a page or two a day?

      Yeah, I’m not telling her to write every thing she remembers, but a summary. Her narrations were longer when I wrote them for her (and I still require to verbally narrate to me most days) but now she is either picking out the most important part or her favourite part to write down. The quality of the finished product has gone down, but so have the protests — she has really disliked narrating from the beginning. She seems quite pleased with it now though.

    Hi! I assume you didn’t make these for volumes 1 and 2?

    1. Learning Mama September 18, 2017 at 8:32 pm

      No, not yet Sara! I’m planning on it though, as I’ll be cycling through the series again with my younger children.
