1 review for World of Eggs – A Notebook Companion™ for An Egg Is Quiet

  1. Alana Jose

    This is our 3rd year of homeschooling and our 1st time doing Notebooking overall, using a Notebook Companion. I had just purchased An Egg Is Quiet around the same time I purchased Daily Skillbuilding’s Tame Your Tongue Bundle. As I was curious to see their other “open and go” options, I saw An Egg Is Quiet Notebook Companion. I thought it would be a useful “companion” to dive deep into an artist picture book, which we would otherwise just read through with an oral picture study. It was refreshing to see another format of an open and go lesson besides worksheets. To give a brief description of the Companion, there are a total of 57 pages, of which the first 10 pages are a basic introduction. Pages 11-51 are a combination of questions to be answered and prompts to draw and/ or label pictures from the book, of which 10 of those pages can be considered “writing”. Pages 52-57 are coloring pages. To conclude, we will definitely continue with notebooking. For our family, it encourages open minded learning, and, in our opinion, beats 180 day lesson workbooks. Thank you Daily Skillbuilding!
