    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

    Keeping an art journal isn't just an activity for older kids! Younger children can also benefit from the activity of regular drawing and writing too. Like the Student's Guide to Keeping an Art Journal, this is not an art course, but a guide to learning how to keep an art journal, with some art instruction mixed in. The first half of the book introduces children to an art journal, and provides simple exercises for them to start building their skills, like drawing a picture of a sunny day, practicing lettering with colored pencils and thinking of interesting vocabulary. Drawing lessons follow, with several lines for the student to write something that complements their drawing. The last half of the book is designed for them to use as an art journal. These pages feature a blank space for the date, a block of lines to write on, a vocabulary word with definition, and a large white space for them to draw. A small picture of the book's "mascot," Can-Do the dog often appears as well. With the emphasis on drawing and lettering, you won't need much in the way of art materials here, just a good set of colored pencils (the book recommends Prismacolor) and an extra fine marker pen. 120 pgs, spiral-bound. – Jess

    Teaching teenagers the importance of staying healthy is vital to lifelong fitness. The exercise and eating habits they develop at this age are likely to affect their health and happiness their whole life. These journals provide an excellent way to teach students the importance of good habits and provide space to record daily exercise and food intake. There are daily boxes to fill in for a whole semester, which prompt students to record what they eat, if they drink enough water, how many hours they sleep, if they’ve fulfilled the food pyramid’s daily requirements, if they drank soda, and what kind of exercise they did. While having students record their diet and exercise is a great way for them to spot unhealthy tendencies, space for recording this information is not the only part of these great journals. Health information and plenty of tips on developing a healthy lifestyle are also included to show students how they should adjust their eating and activities. National standards and the President’s Challenge (set of exercises used in many P.E. classes to gauge fitness) are included, along with great info on the benefits of exercising and eating right. There are fitness charts, a food pyramid, and places to develop an overall fitness plan and track goals. With nutrition and exercise tips focused toward teens, these journals are sure to show your students the importance of taking care of themselves and help them develop good habits that will lead to life-long health. Great to use with such books as 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, each of these journals by Betty Kern, MS, CSCS is fairly similar, they just include a few charts and info geared toward different age groups. Help your child get on the road to lifelong fitness with this great journal. Middle School version has 80 pages, High School version has 92; both measure 11” x 8.5” and are softcover. ~ Rachel

    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!

    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

    The power of prayer should never be underestimated. One of the best things you can do for your kids is to pray for them consistently. This light-hearted journal was designed to be guilt-free - the pages aren't dated or scheduled, so you can pick up this journal every day, once a week, or every other month. Full of insight and practical truths about prayer, it will help you to more effectively pray for your children and their needs. It is divided into different sections, each focusing on a different topic - Asking God to Shape Me into a Worthy Parent, Requesting Protection and Health for My Child, Praying for Healthy Emotions, Praying for a Close Relationship with the Lord, Praying for Relationships, Praying God's Best for My Children, Asking God to Make My Children Worthy of His Call on Them, Praying for Godly Character, and Asking God to Establish Them in Him. Contained within these chapters are over 40 different readings. Each of these begins with a short passage to read containing wisdom, stories, and encouragement. Then the actual journaling part is spread over two pages, with the left hand page offering several different scripturally based prayers you can pray for your children, and the right hand page is given for you to record your actual prayers. Heading such as "How this applies to my family and me," "What I believe God will do," "My specific prayer for_____," "Insights I received as I prayed," and places for dates and answers are accompanied by several blank lines for you to journal on. This user-friendly, personable resource will help you form the extremely essential, healthy habit of praying for your kids. 191 pgs. - Melissa

    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

    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
