    A special little journal where your child or student can record book titles, authors, # of pages, date read, draw a little picture and write a few sentences about the story. It has a paper cover, so it is an inexpensive option for a classroom. I think this would be one of those little items parents keep to look back on to see what your student liked at a certain age. Do one every year! It has space to write about 29 books. Green cover, 7.5x9" 28pp ~Sara

    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

    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.

    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

    I have such good memories of family vacations we took when I was younger. But I have to wonder if I am remembering the details from my point of view or from the pictures I saw later on. How cool it would be to see what I was actually thinking at that time! This particular travel journal has prompts on every page. This journal captures the entire trip starting with the "pre-trip" pages that include prompts on packing, what you know about where you are going, and finding your destination on a map. During-the-trip pages capture every moment from what you did and saw during the travel time; the weather, food and other cultural questions; and then day-to-day pages to record what you did, what you saw and what/where you ate each day. In the back are pages to keep in touch with new friends, write about your souvenirs, and space to reflect on your trip such as what you found the best/worst about the trip. With about 90 day-to-day pages, it would be perfect for a long summer vacation journal. The light blue/teal pages are great for a girl or boy. What a fun keepsake! pb, 126pp, 6x8". ~ Sara

    Pam Conrad brings you this gripping log of Pedro de Salcedo, who was aboard the great voyage with Christopher Columbus from August 3rd of 1492 to February 14th of 1493. Pedro is a young man of only fourteen, and it is his first time away from home. The captain quickly makes him a sort of right-hand man. Pedro watches how intensely the men doubt Columbus from the beginning. The day before they finally touch land, Columbus promises they will turn around home. As fate would have it, the next day they land in a place Columbus names San Salvador. Here they gain experience with the natives, who are extremely docile and generous. In each place they land on, the people gradually become unfriendly - perhaps some words of caution were spread? Soon enough, the entire crew realizes they have not landed in India and there are no spices or silks or pearls. In fact, nobody except Columbus cares about anything except heading home to Spain at this point. After the sinking of the Santa Maria, some of the men board the Nina to go home, and the others are left behind to start a Spanish settlement in the New World. Pedro fears he may not ever return home. On the last day at sea, he encases a last letter into a barrel and throws it out to the ocean so that if it ever reaches his home, his mother should know that he loves her and she should pray for his soul. This recounting is sometimes suspenseful, troubling, and mystifying, but at all times it is engaging.

    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
