Narration Notebooks provide students with a place to complete narrations and copywork for reading selections. Our Narration Notebooks have been tailored toward the needs of Charlotte Mason and Classical Education student needs. Inside each Narration Notebook you will find a space for picture narration and copywork in addition to written narration and copywork.
If your student is not writing narrations yet, no problem! Simply note their narration on the lines for them as they narrate orally. Choose passage from any book of your choosing and begin. Narration Notebooks are a great way to document your students dedication and hard work.
Three different Narration Notebooks are available to suit the individual needs of your students. We have primary ruled for those still working on proper letter formation and placement. We have wide ruled Narration Notebooks, and college ruled Narration Notebooks.
Helpful narration prompts are also included in each Narration Notebook!
Narration, the art of telling, has been used as a pedagogical tool since ancient times. Over one hundred years ago, Charlotte Mason methodized narration and implemented it in scores of schools in Great Britain. Over the past few decades, educators in the US, mostly in home schools, have followed her guidelines with outstanding results.
This book discusses the theory behind the use of narration and then walks through the process from beginning to end, to show how simply "telling" is the foundation for higher-level thinking and writing.
While narration has grown popular among homeschoolers, it also works well in the classroom. In this book, you will find sample narrations and many resources to help you use narration with your students in any setting. If you've been wanting to try narration, but haven't felt confident enough to rely on an unfamiliar method, this book will give you the tools that you need to make the process easier.
People are narrating every day, and this book will show you how to make that natural activity a vital part of education that enhances children's relationship with knowledge and allows them to grow into skilled communicators.
