With the Kids

Studying Up with Big Fat Notebooks

This coming school year I’ll have 2 kids in middle school – what?? Where did the time go?! But we’re really excited, especially for my 11 year old just starting 6th grade. She’s so excited to move on to a new school. She’s a bit nervous, but she’ll have her big brother to help guide her through the year as the big 8th grader!

Big Fat Notebooks for Middle Schoolers

We’ll also have a little extra study skill help from Workman Publishing and their new Big Fat Notebook study series! How fun are these notebooks?! There are 5 books in this series, all ready to help my middle schoolers ace this school year! With study books for math, science, world history, american history, and english language arts, I’m excited for the coming year. My kids are ready to ace every subject!

Here’s a little more about the Big Fat Notebook series:

The BIG FAT NOTEBOOKS meet Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and state history standards, and are vetted by National and State Teacher of the Year Award–winning teachers. They make learning fun and are the perfect next step for every kid who grew up on Brain Quest.

There are five books in all, and each is the only book you need for each main subject taught in middle school: Math, Science, American History, English Language Arts, and World History. Inside the reader will find every subject’s key concepts, easily digested and summarized: Critical ideas highlighted in neon colors. Definitions explained. Doodles that illuminate tricky concepts in marker. Mnemonics for memorable shortcuts. And quizzes to recap it all.
