Skinny Book: The Multipurpose Learning Notebook
A guaranteed MUST for ALL LEARNERS!
This creative use of a notebook allows you and your students to learn and memorize the way your brains work best.
Using LOTS of white space (pages are unlined to allow the maximum use of creativity), you write half of your info on one side (i.e. Spanish Vocab Word) and the other half on the other side (i.e. English translation, or a quick doodle.) Then you can flip it back on itself to quiz yourself or hold it up to quiz a partner.
We refer to this tool a LOT in See it and Say it - as does Charlotte Mason in her language learning methodology.
At the end of any Spanish course, you have a nice THIN personal dictionary to refer to as a record of all your vocabulary words... or hard math facts, or biology definitions, or a timeline of World War II, or difficult spelling words, or visionary plans for his future...
The point is: the SHAPE of the book inspires creativity, memory, and SMALL chunks of information that you can ACTUALLY learn. Then turn the page and tackle the next set of informational tidbits.
Choose from lined (basic notebooks cut in half!) or unlined (colorful cover, 100 white pages inside.)
Keep it chunky and light! And stay MOTIVATED in all your school subjects.
