You Don't Need This Book
Really! However, for some of you, it may be the most useful science supplement you can buy, and that is why we are excited to offer it.
How the Young Explorer Series Uses Notebooks
The Young Explorer Series is our favorite science program for young scientists, and with good reason. The Charlotte Mason approach provides lots of information in a readable, engaging format. Lessons are designed to be spread over multiple weeks, with significant portions devoted to hands-on experiments and to notebook keeping.
Notebook Keeping Explained
Notebook keeping is simply a system for assisting your child to document what he has learned in each lesson. With the use of this book or even an ordinary 3-ring binder, your child will write out the highlights of the lesson. If your child doesn't enjoy writing, don't let that discourage either of you. The author of this book encourages you to have your child dictate his thoughts to you or illustrate them.
Regardless of how you implement it, this approach helps your child to think through what he has learned, distill it down to its most basic level, and communicate it effectively. If he can't communicate it well, he probably doesn't really grasp it.
Two Approaches to Notebooks
When it comes to what notebook you use, your options are as varied as your children. We suggest one of two approaches. The cheapest option is to visit your local discount store and pick up a 3-ring binder. Then, print out the PDF to use as starter pages, punch holes, and begin.
For some of you, though, the time involved in a shopping trip, the cost of printing out forty-odd pages, and the effort of getting them all hole-punched and placed in order in the notebook is a bigger expenditure than simply purchasing a ready-to-use notebook. It is for your family that we offer this great tool.
