    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

    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

    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.

    Whether you love to write, hate to write, or fall somewhere in the middle, I Love Words will get those creative juices flowing. This book is packed full of fun, "think outside the box" activities. Some examples include: writing a funny story from a t-shirt graphic; decorating a cake with your favorite words; making a word box from a shoebox; word association; inventing your own words, and much more. The activity pages contain whimsical graphics (black and white with an accent color), with a feisty, humorous tone throughout. You may want to skip the couple mildly irreverent activities; for example, inventing your own swears words (with your parents' permission), but there is also a great "think before you speak" activity, encouraging kids to explore words that hurt and heal. Use just as a unique writing prompt book or to explore vocabulary and word use from a different angle. Even the most reluctant writer will find something to enjoy in this collection.
