    If you need some help getting organized, but want more flexibility than a standard lesson-plan book provides, read on! This journal combines lesson planner with other helpful forms uniquely suited to homeschooling. Intended as a permanent record, the spiral-bound volume can be filed away with your children’s work as a lasting reference to your school year. The first few pages contain helpful instructions for use and 2-year calendar to aid in planning. A“Linear Schedule of Home Schooling Events” - your year-at-a-glance summary of school-related activities - is followed by a page of yearly requirements like dental exams, test dates, home schooling conventions, etc. A two-sided page for recording by-subject test scores follows. The next several pages are devoted to recording information pertinent to planning field trips, including goals for learning. The heart of the organizer is a generous 200-day daily subject log. Recording boxes are ample and each page helpfully includes a lined, wide “NOTES:” column which allows for detailed recording of particulars on field trips, special activities, journal entries, whatever. At the end of the planner are 13 full pages of library list forms, allowing you to keep a record of books read or books that you hope to locate for use in unit studies. Reasonably priced, this journal could be a wonderful investment in tracking and organizing your school year.

    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.

    This small booklet is filled with over 150 journal prompts that are Christian and homeschool oriented. Written by Cyndy Regeling (with the help of her three sons), the prompts are meant for boys, but many could be used by girls as well (besides prompts like "If there was an award for "Brother of the Year," what should the qualifications be? Would you qualify? Why or why not?" and "Can you picture yourself as a husband one day? Describe what you would do to be a good husband."). From September through June, there are four prompts for each week. Prompts are fairly simple and should lead to about 15 minutes of writing. Prompts cover school, hobby, family, spiritual, and other fun topics and prompt for different types of writing (poems, description, narrative, etc.). Some are pure fun ("Imagine the fun it would be to drive a dog sled team. Create an adventurous tale with you as the sled driver."), while some require serious thinking (Missionaries courageously tell others about Jesus. How can you be a missionary in your area? What would you tell a friend who asked you to explain why Jesus is so important to you?"). This is a simple booklet of journal prompts that is very well done. ~ Rachel

    Melissa and I used to spend hours with our "me" journals years and years ago. We would work on them together or alone and enjoy filling in every fun page. This colorful journal provides young kids with the perfect place to write all about themselves, their family and friends, their dreams and feelings, their favorites, and other unique things that make them themselves. The spiral-bound pages offer plenty of fun questions and prompts for kids to journal their thoughts and ideas on and plenty of space for them to add to these thoughts as they come back to the pages over and over again. ~ Steph

    This book isn't what I expected. I thought I would be spending time looking through a book that offered help in everyday math concepts. A journal of ideas proven to be effective. Not so! This is a spiral bound book of 60 double-sided pieces of graph paper. The graph paper has ¼" squares and is perfect for doing math problems. Number alignment can be a real issue in math, and it's so important for accuracy. Have your student do math problems on the pages in this book and you will have a record of past work and concepts they have covered. This allows you and your student to use the book as a reference. Voila! You have created your own Math Journal! I know this is recommended for grades K-6, but it would be helpful at any age. Use it for working on fractions, place value, graphing, and so much more. ~ Donna

    The Elementary Journal (48 pgs) provides recording space for three days a week; the other journals include 7 days. Having students record their diet and exercise is a great way for them to spot unhealthy tendencies. The other part of these great journals: included health information and plenty of tips on developing a healthy lifestyle. With age appropriate content, these show students how to adjust their eating and activities.

    No matter where you are in your prayer journey, this journal can help! There's a lot packed into this 200 page, wire bound, paperback journal. It is full of prompts encouraging you to pray each day, pray for specific things, and pray scripture. The journal is laid out much like a daily planner. At the beginning of the journal, there is a place for you to record specific people to pray for each day of the week. You'll pray for your family on Monday, God's family on Tuesday, your community on Wednesday, your nation on Thursday, the world on Friday, the lost on Saturday, and for personal guidance on Sunday. Each month focuses on specific prayers to improve your prayer life and overall character such as seeking the Lord, yielding your heart, trusting His way, and obeying God's word. Each two-page spread has a six-day layout. Each day has its own box for your prayer requests and scriptures for you to read if you wish to read the Bible in one year. The borders feature scriptures and other insightful quotes. At the end of the month, there is a page for you to write monthly reflections, as well as a prayer for the month for your spiritual growth. The end of the journal features a place for you to record your answered prayers, and a few additional helps and resources to encourage you to keep praying. As an added bonus, this journal is formatted in such a way that you can start using it anytime during the year. – elise

    Now this is something I would have liked to have had on hand when I was younger! Though simply titled as a journal, this substantial (at 173 pages) and attractive journal is so much more. The book is designed to be both a guide and a record for the young nature lover and student while observing animals and plants in their natural habitats. The journal is divided into five "worlds," woodlands, meadows, ponds & streams, seashore, and twilight. These are nicely laid out in a table of contents at the beginning, complete with a list of the activities in that section and a shaded circle for them to check off once they have completed that page. Following several pages of safety tips, hints on sketching in the field, and a list of suggested items to make a "journal kit" to keep with them while out in the field, we jump into the woodland unit. Every two-page spread in a section consists of a different activity to complete while observing in that area, a page or two of informational reading to prepare the student better to find objects or understand them, and blank pages for them to draw and record their findings. For example, in Woodlands, there are "scavenger hunts" where you record your findings in the blanks rather than gathering things. There is space to write descriptions of different kinds of leaves, pages to draw leaves they find or make leaf rubbings, a page for them to write about their special place, hints on how to find decomposers, and pages to draw animal tracks they find. Each section ends with several blank pages for observation notes, sketches, or whatever else they'd like to record. All in all, it's a combination of nature guide, sketchbook, and journal all in one very attractive (and perfectly hand-sized) package. All this wrapped up in a durable hardcover but spiral bound book teeming with illustrations, tempting areas to write, and inviting spots to draw. With these kinds of "prompts" on every page, combined with natural curiosity, learning about nature should be practically effortless!

    This book is now in 2nd ed. and chapters include What is Astronomy, The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, The Moon, Mars, Space Rocks, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Kuiper Belt and the Dwarf Planets, and Stars, Galaxies, and Space Travel. The last few chapters are where you see a change in the chapter sequence from the first edition – chapters 11 and through 14. There are still interesting activities and projects including a model solar system made of balloons, pinhole eclipse viewing box, making a compass, understanding the moon phases, and creating an astrometer. Children are sure to remember the information they are learning between hearing the text, performing the hands-on activities, and completing the journal pages.

    The text is formatted differently from first edition – it begins with an explanation of the text, activities, course website, notebooking journals, and science kit in clear bold print. Each lesson is full of new photography and illustrations and interspersed with scripture. Blue “Think about this” and “Wisdom from Above” boxes give special attention to the Creator, and orange questions are scattered throughout the lessons for students to think about and explain. Activities for each lesson include instructions and illustrations for completion. Every chapter is rounded out with “What do you Remember?” where students recall information from the lesson. The appendices include a lesson-by-lesson supply list for hands-on activities and an answer key for “What do you Remember?” questions.

    Notebooking journals are now in full color and color-coordinated. A suggested schedule is in the front of each notebooking journal, but you decide how many times a week to do your curriculum. The schedule lists daily assignments (71 total), and the lists have items listed in 3 different colors – green for textbook reading assignments, blue for notebook assignments, and brown for science kit activities. Pages in the notebooking journal are formatted for students to answer questions and complete activities. A review of the inner planets now follows lesson 8, review of the outer planets follows lesson 12, and a final review follows lesson 14. “Take it Further” pages are now drawing, making lists of books you’ve read, movies you’ve watched, additional experiments you may have completed, and making scrapbooking pages. Copywork is still included and coloring pages in the junior notebooking journals. There are answer keys in the back for vocabulary crossword puzzles and final review questions.

    Because of the content changes, first edition products won’t work with the 2nd edition. Experiments are different (four of them are unchanged), so lab supplies do vary as well.

    Birds, bugs, and bats – if it flies, it's explored in this fascinating introduction to zoology! The first portion of the book focuses on birds and their unique characteristics. Kids will learn bird anatomy, how they are able to fly, why they build nests, how they raise their young, and more. They'll also learn to identify the birds they see every day and do activities that explore the habits and preferences of different species of birds. Students will learn about bats, some of the most useful and wonderful flying creatures in the world. As they study the physical characteristics and lifestyle of the bat, they'll gain a new appreciation for these creatures. Finally, kids will get up close and personal to the insect world. They'll learn how to identify and classify the many different types of bugs they see, and they'll even get to design their own experiments with different insect species. Kids will get the opportunity to keep their own field journals as they are encouraged to be their own scientist as they observe and understand the world around them.
