A Review of Astronomy Notebooking Journal by Jeannie Fulbright

Recently, I received a copy of Jeannie Fulbright’s new Astronomy Notebooking Journal. We have long been fans of her elementary science books, and the addition of the notebooking journals makes them even more student friendly. Ms. Fulbright lists a lesson plan at the beginning of the notebooking journal that will correspond with the textbook for Exploring Creation with Astronomy. She tells you what pages to read in the textbook. She only gives notebooking assignments twice per week, so it is not an overwhelming amount of work. There are lesson plans for 28 weeks, so there is flexibility in using the books. Or you can do lessons more than twice a week and cover more than one book per year. The Botany Notebooking Journal is also ready, and I have heard that she is working on the notebooking journals for her other books.

But let me tell you more about the Astronomy Notebooking Journal. It is spiral bound for easy student use. And the pages are designed with plenty of room for the student to write and personalize. There are also review questions for each lesson. I particularly like the cross-word puzzles and mini-books at the end of the journal. I have 5 boys, and they do not particularly enjoy lapbooking, but this notebooking journal is something they can use without too much prodding from their teacher. We have found that lapbooking involves too much cutting and writing for little boys. So I am happy to have something that will give us a few mini-books and journal pages without being overwhelming. These notebooking journals are written for children ages kindergarten through grade 6.

I would give Ms. Fulbright 5 stars for these notebooking journals, and that says a lot coming from me. I have tried a lot of materials over the years. This was a very easy decision in adding to my website.
