So a MDC member recently inspired me to begin notebooking with my children. I used to think notebooking was boring, because all I saw were black and white pages with an image or two and lots of lines. But when I saw her notebooking (or rather, her childs) with so much color, activities, and interesting "stuff" I got the bug! I think my kids will have sooo much fun with this.

I have a 3 year old son who turns 4 in Oct. He'll be starting Pre-K at home probably in the fall. My oldest daughter who is 5, is finishing up her K year (we school year-round, but go light in the summer).

I'd like to give her a notebook for science, social studies, bible and math. But in a blog I visited, it looked as though science and bible were contained in one (using the creation story as bible AND science). I like that idea.

How would I incorperate math? She can count to 100 with little help, counts by 10's, adds and subtracts small numbers. She can count backwards well from 5, and with a little help from 10. I would love ideas for a math notebook for her, because math really isn't a fun subject for her but I think with notebooking, it could be. Aside from numbers, what other "concepts" are included in first grade math that I could include?

My sons notebook is going to be pretty straightforward - he'l have an ABC scrapbook like my daughter did, but we'll do it a little differently.

Are shapes considered "math" in preschool? I can't remember what I did with my daughter for "math" in preschool. Sure basic counting, but what other concepts that I could include in a seperate notebook for him? Big/little, above/below type of stuff? I think with him we'd be best doing an ABC scrapbook, perhaps a math notebook (numbers, concepts), then a general "everything" to cover holidays, themes, fieldtrips, drawings, etc.

I think this will be great to be able to show family, too, that we actually Do something in homeschooling...
