Michelle’s son is loving this approach:

“I purchased this book for my son. We homeschool year round and we love the fact that you choose your own books, movies/documentaries, and you can choose the way you study and fill this book out. This is something he can do on his own or with me. He chooses his books and then a few weeks later chooses different books. Many people think the fact that the pages repeat with different art but with the same concept that kids will be bored with it, but the kids choose their books so how could they get bored? If they do get bored they simply pick new books. They can switch books as often or as little as they would like. We go to the library twice a week. You can also use books that you already have so you do no have to go to the library as often.”


“This is a fantastic basic open ended journal for your child (or yourself! I have one!) To guide and record and process what is studied. Pick books to read, videos to watch, favorite passages to copy. Listen to a story or biography and color, take notes, draw, or doodle while listening or reading. This is a non religious journal, and open ended for a variety of ages. Use it to encourage your child to learn how to research, take notes, and enjoy learning!” ~Amaroq45


Thinking Tree Learning Levels:

A1 = Pre Reader (Pre-K) ages 2-5

A2 = Beginning Readers (K-1st) ages 6-7

B1 = Early Elementary (2nd-3rd) ages 8-9

B2 = Upper Elementary (4th-6th) ages 10-11

C1 = Junior High (7th-8th) ages 12-14

Many Thinking Tree Journals span a wide variety of ages because the students use books at his/her reading level. For example, some journals may say for ages 7-17 because you customize it and meet the student where he’s at.
