Big Fat Notebooks are easy-to-read, condensed books of knowledge, notes, and quizzes about every subject. And they’re perfect for middle school!
But guess what else, parents?
If you’re like me and maybe have forgotten everything about middle school math or American History or Science, these books will help you, too!! 🙂
Big Fat Notebook: Study Guides for Middle School
Made by the creators of Brain Quest workbooks at Workman Publishing, these five Big Fat Notebook study guides, cover each of the major subjects taught in middle school: Math, Science, American History, English Language Arts, and World History.
They’re a great resource to own — especially if you’re homeschooling or doing school at home during Coronavirus school closures!
Look at the layout inside one of these books.
Talk about eye-catching and easy to navigate! Important info is highlighted in neon colors. Words and concepts are explained and defined. Tricky concepts are captured with fun doodles. Fun mnemonics help to remember information. Quizzes help solidify the concepts.
Of course, Big Fat Notebooks meet Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and state history standards.
They’ve also been vetted by National and State Teacher of the Year Award-winning teachers.

Here’s what people are saying about these notebooks (in their five-star reviews)…
“My 7th grade daughter absolutely loves this whole series and so do I…These study guides have been a great way for her to learn the important information and retain it.” – R. Schu on Amazon
“I bought this to homeschool my boys. They are in 7th and 8th grades. I wouldn’t use it as a stand alone, but it makes a great framework to make sure you are covering everything. The chapters are short and lay the information out in a way that is easy to understand. I wish I had found this sooner. My boys will be going to public school for high school and I plan to keep this book as a reference for them.” – beans72 on Amazon
“The book is full of clear, concise information written at grade level and presented in a fun, easy to use fashion. There are plenty of detailed explanations coupled with fun illustrations, graphs, and overviews.” – Dave Lakhani on Amazon
