Everything You Need to Build a Unit Study Notebook is an excellent tool for producing beautiful notebooks that display all your child has learned while doing a particular unit. It is one of the most recommended ways of displaying all the information you have gathered, and this kit provides many wonderful master sheets for making it look good. Jennifer Steward, the author of Everything You Need To Know About Homeschool Unit Studies, has also put together this detailed guide to creating a good portfolio, whether for state standards or your own family records. This will be a project your students will enjoy, and the finished product will have much more appeal than a stack of fill-in-the-blank workbooks. Included in the kit is a detailed list of the benefits of creating a notebook, suggestions of what to include, and the aforementioned collection of reproducibles. This is such an essential tool for putting together a high-quality keepsake/school record portfolio for each of your students.
