    This draw and write journal by Dover provides fascinating pages for kids to fill-in and becomes a fun keepsake to look back on! Each page focuses on a different thought, such as writing about three great experiences, designing the ultimate hangout, where they would go if they could go back in time, and typical journal pages such as favorite everythings, physical and personality characteristics, family, future dreams, etc. The pages are gray-scale with lots of fun illustrations, so children can color each page as they journal along.

    This clever little book is a journal, doodle pad and sketch book all in one. Half the book is full of writing prompts and the other half is full of drawing prompts. One cover says I Like to Write. Flip it over and the other cover says I Like to Draw. The book is colorful with simple, sketch-like illustrations. You may see a paint palette to fill in, with a task at the bottom like I see you are a painter. The paint is all over your studio! Your job is to fill in the colors on the palette. On the writing side, you may see 2 champagne glasses with bubbles. Your prompt reads: A toast is the perfect time to share love and gratitude. Whether you are raising your glass of apple juice or toasting a pair of champagne flutes, practice your skills. Write down several toasts to use in a pinch. All will cheer and you will have no fear. You write on both pages for this topic. Most take 2 pages. The book lies open nicely for this purpose. Reinforced soft cover, 128pp ~ Sara

    If you can train yourself in the habit, keeping a nature journal offers not only the opportunity to continually hone artistic skills, but also provides ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, develop a deeper appreciation for nature, enhance penmanship and writing abilities and become a precious keepsake for years to come. This guide takes students lesson-by-lesson through developing their own nature journal and building the skills they'll need to capture examples of nature's beauty. Created by Barry Stebbing, author of the How Great Thou Art courses, these lessons are formatted similarly with short, easy-to-read lessons and a related assignment. There are 47 lessons total, the first segment focusing on assignments that can be done in the classroom, and later assignments which students will get to head outdoors to do. Lessons include designing the journal cover; learning how to appropriately frame the page; creating various tones in green and brown, and drawing specific objects or scenes such as onions, vines or tree trunks, landscapes, night scenes, farm animals, feathers, insects and much more. The lessons are illustrated with a variety of related drawings (both color and black-and-white) by Barry, some of which serve as examples to copy, and others to provide inspiration or examples for students' own drawing. The last piece of the book provides several blank journal pages with lines, a space for an inspiring quote and blank areas for drawing. You'll need a few specific supplies to complete the lessons, including a hardbound journal, a legal pad, a rubber band, colored pencils, a drawing pen, a writing pen, glue stick, tape, washable markers, a #6 watercolor brush (to use with the markers) and semi-gloss paper. Especially if you're not already emphasizing art in your curriculum, a course in nature journaling can provide your students a rewarding, creative tie-in to your science, English or even handwriting program – and get them outdoors to enjoy that sunshine! – Jess

    This is a journal made specifically for journal writing. The book itself is ready to be written in, with the top 1/3 of every page blank and the bottom 2/3 of the pages lined. The inside front cover has a list of frequently misspelled words and the inside back cover is a place for students to create their own word list. Although a teaching guide was available at one time, at this time, only the student journal is available. The overall idea is to get students journaling as an aid in developing their literacy skills. ~ Zach

    Learn to slow down and enjoy life as you observe and reflect upon the world around you. In Part One of this book, you will learn what it means to keep a nature journal, how to start exploring, and how to express your thoughts using the written word and drawings. If you're not a great artist, don't panic! This book will help you lay aside your fears as it encourages you to improve your skills through practice.

    Part Two of this manual focuses on the ongoing journal, providing ideas to keep your journal active throughout the changing seasons. Centering a portion of your seasonal observations on a stationary object or place such as the tree across the street, an easily observed park or street corner, or even the moon will lend a sense of continuity to your entries.

    The final section is entitled "Learning and Teaching Nature Journaling." This segment consists of a number of exercises to help the reader gain confidence with basic drawing skills including contour, capturing basic shapes, foreshortening, perspective, and shading. The author has also provided helpful tips to simplify drawing flowers, landscapes, weather, reptiles and amphibians, birds, and other objects which may prove difficult to capture on paper.

    The last few chapters of this section are devoted to the idea of teaching the art of nature journaling to people of all ages, and adapting nature journaling to a group activity. This portion stresses the role of the teacher in creating learning situations that stimulate learners to begin writing or drawing in a journal.

    The book has just a bit of evolutionary content in it, but nothing that can't be avoided. A helpful appendix at the back of the book gives suggested reading, additional resources, and a suggested scale for teachers to assess nature journaling skills. Complete index. - Rachel

    Children love drawing, so why not include it in learning how to write? Each page of this journal includes a half-page blank space for a picture and 20 lines for writing—be it a story, report, or whatever else. The lines are nicely spaced for beginning writers, including a dashed middle line for lower-case letters and light upper line for capitals and tall letters. There are 24 pages, so there's enough space for 24 stories/pictures. Inside the front cover is a spot for your child's name, school name, and special notes; inside the back cover is a list of the states and their abbreviations and capital cities. –Chad

      Sometimes, students just need to realize they can write. Each of this journal’s writing prompts provides a positive-themed writing statement that starts with “I can write….” Students who have had either negative or positive writing experiences will be encouraged as they write about a hero, a dream, the hardest thing they’ve ever done, or a favorite food, for example. Pages contain 1/2” lines, and the double-page spreads provide plenty of writing space. 64 pp, sc. 7x9” ~ Ruth

    With 1" ruled primary writing lines and a blank-top page every second page, this is the way to start your children on the road of journaling. The 64 pages should keep them going for a while, and the journal itself lays quite flat since it is 11" x 8.5" (landscape format). This makes it easier for younger children. Pb ~ Zach

       Sometimes it can be so difficult to come up with ideas for writing. This cute journal solves the problem by getting students to write about themselves, their lives, and those around them. Get ready to write, draw, and color about the things that make you happy – people that make you smile, describe a dessert, book, sports, movies, and more. You even get to write a welcome message for a personalized door hanger, make “Happy to Help” coupons, and a “Thinking of You” card. “My Happiness Diary” pages give you a place to write about a happy event each day for five weeks. Published by Dover and intended for both boys and girls, this 64-page book is a great tool to get them writing. ~ Donna

    Take a walk, find something interesting (a fallen log, a patch of moss, a beetle) and encourage your child/student to take the time to observe, draw and write about what he sees. Each page has 5 large (dotted half-line) writing lines and a space to draw a picture (about 7 x 4) at the top. Younger students can tell you what they see while you write for them and they draw a picture. Older students can write a few sentences on their own. While you are creating a keepsake, children are learning to be curious about nature and practice their handwriting skills. A few pages at the beginning of the workbook explain some classifications children can include and there are some prompts if you need a little guidance on your nature walk. You dont have to find a lush forest; a yard or park will do the trick! Take a magnifying glass and some colored pencils with you. Each page has a verse from a poem or Scripture at the bottom. Memoria Press, 36pp (26 journaling pages), 8.5 x 11 pb ~ Sara

    Subtitled "My Life in Scribbles," doodlers of all ages will enjoy this fun, relaxed departure from the typical all-about-me journal varieties. Packed with colorful graphics and borders, this book contains a mixture of themed prompts as well as plenty of blank space for open-ended writing and doodling. Some examples of the themes are name doodling, creating your own superhero, describing your favorite music, and drawing faces reflecting your daily moods. (This journal is most likely to appeal to girls, since it has purple and pink graphics, including hearts, flowers, stars, and the like.) Another interesting section is for "groodling," which consists of several pages divided into thirds (like a flipbook) so you and your friends can collaborate and create your own unique creatures. The blank doodling pages contain quotes and whimsical illustrations in the margins for inspiration. The journal even comes with a matching pen so you can get started! 75 pgs, spiral, with a plastic cover. ~ Lisa

    Barry Stebbing is a firm believer in keeping an art journal. After all, if aspiring writers are encouraged to keep up a journaling habit, how much more valuable is it to artists as an opportunity to sketch, write, and practice new techniques? This helpful companion offers encouragement and advice to young artists as they begin and develop their own art journals. In the beginning of the book, Barry gives students plenty of reasons to journal, along with tips on how this book will complement other How Great Thou Art instruction books. He also offers instruction on getting started, including how often to journal, how to write descriptive entries that complement the sketches, and more. The remainder of the book is broken up to focus on the parts of the art journal, including penmanship, format, recommended art materials, drawing basics, and using pen and ink and colored pencils. In each section, exercises are included to build both art and writing skills and get artists comfortable drawing different subjects in pencil, pen, or other mediums. Advice, encouragement, quotes, and examples of the author's and other artists' journals are sprinkled throughout, giving the book a leisurely feel instead of a series of assignments. Designed to be an art journaling guide, this is not a complete instructional book, but it can easily be used alongside any How Great Thou Art materials, or even any other art program you are currently using. And why not? The benefits are endless – you're improving your writing and drawing skills while creating a memento you and others will enjoy looking back on for years to come! – Jess

    Need more guidance to create a nature study notebook? Check out this new nature study journal from Funschooling Books. First, get a quick look at how to use the book along with a list of 10 things to think about when you go outside. Then you are whisked into activity pages. An assortment of independent activities is included: for example, drawing and coloring pages; brief research exercises; collecting items and creating nature crafts; spelling and vocabulary review, etc. To supplement these pages, I would recommend a Science Encyclopedia, the Handbook of Nature Study from Anna Comstock or accessing a library. The author does provide space to record additional reading/movie resources used with the journal. Created specifically for Dyslexic Children, and utilizing the Dyslexie Font created by Christian Boer. Children without dyslexia may also find them engaging. This is a fun supplement for your nature studies or to keep learning alive through the summer. Black & White graphics. SC.223 pgs. Non-reproducible. ~ Deanne

    Children can construct a unique ABC journal as they learn their letters. A page for each letter of the alphabet shows the upper and lower case letters and stroke sequence for writing or tracing with a finger. Then each letter is used in a sentence at the top of the page: "Aa is for alphabet," "Bb is for book," etc. The book is formatted in landscape position to give children plenty of work space as they complete an activity on the page. On the letter "I" page ("Ii is for inside"), for example, there are basic shapes and children are asked to draw something inside each shape. The "D" page ("Dd is for dinner") shows a plate and tableware and asks the child to draw his favorite dinner. At the bottom of many pages is a sentence to complete. On the "D" page this is "I like to eat ________." Finally, each page has an "I Can Do More" activity to round out the experience. These range from reading a coordinating book to answering a question to performing some activity/project, like "Help make dinner tonight!"

     This is a cute little Thinking Tree workbook for practicing letters. Pages have dotted lines to trace curves and shapes prior to tracing upper and lower case letters. The letters are rather small: 1 cm with a dotted half-line. While the book is black and white, there are loads of pretty illustrations to color. Coloring pages show something starting with a specific letter: girl for G, night for N, violin for V, etc. I found these illustrations pretty complicated for a child of 3 to 6 years. Reminiscent of adult coloring books, they will certainly practice young ones’ fine motor skills! The back of the book has several pages for creativity. There are boxes for creating comics and large lines to practice writing (2cm wide with dotted half line). 8x11”, 100pp, sc. ~ Sara

    This set of three DVDs covers some similar ground as the book course above, but offers some distinct differences. The set of DVDs provides six lessons (each approximately an hour long) which focus on specific drawing topics while the book format contains 47 smaller, more specific lessons. Because of the format and structure of the DVD course, it would work well as a shorter course for use with multiple children or as a family, and the visual demonstrations would be helpful for students (and parents!) that have not had much experience drawing. Each lesson covers some specifics about what to write and how to maintain the journal, along with several drawing assignments that fit a specific topical theme. In the first lesson, viewers get an introduction to keeping a nature journal and will learn what to write, where to draw, and how to mix colors and draw flowers. Lessons 2-6 are centered around drawing trees, landscapes, the four seasons (and the color wheel), insects/butterflies/birds, and "treasures in nature" (pine cones, acorns, etc.), respectively. Each lesson discusses the writing portion of the journal a bit, then turns to drawing exercises, which Mr. Stebbing demonstrates on-camera. Recommended supplies include a hardbound, unlined sketchbook, a set of 12 colored pencils, black pens (different sizes for drawing and writing), water-soluble markers, a brush to blend markers like watercolor, glossy paper for marker drawing, a small drawing board (optional) and small drawing pad (optional). – Jess

    High school record keeping is more important than tracking the progress of your elementary student, so the good folks that brought you the popular Homeschooler’s Journal now have a high school version. As with the Journal, the bulk of the High School Journal is devoted to the weekly lesson layout. Seven columns (vs. six for the Journal) for subjects times five rows for days gives you 40 squares to work with on each pair of pages. These squares contain seven lines for writing details (as opposed to the open format of the squares in the Journal). In the lower right is a handy chart for keeping track of hours spent per subject each week, recordable in quarter-hour increments. Since the method of study (unit studies, structured text, multiple students per subject, etc.) varies from family to family, several examples show various methods of using the weekly lesson layout to your best advantage. The only other change for the High School Journal is a “Grade Record” which replaces the “Test Score Keeper” in the Journal. Daily grades can be recorded in up to 10 subjects for up to 192 days. Other miscellaneous forms in the Journal remain unchanged.
