Your student will use ten pages each day, and will be prompted to do several different learning activities. Once students get started with this homechooling plan they generally need very little help from a parent or teacher.
Perfect for homeschooling boys in 2nd-5th grade. Kids under 8 will need a little help.
Do you have an active boy in your home? If he would rather be climbing trees the Active Boys journal might be what you are looking for. Cover all the standard school subjects while tapping into your son’s interests. This curriculum journal is great for all students, especially reluctant learners.
Uses the Dyslexie Font to make reading easy for children with reading confusion. Perfect for students with Dyslexia, Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD and other learning challenges.
Other pages you’ll find in the Active Boys Journal (some less than others):
Math Practice Pages: have your child use this page with his current math book or practice problems. He can also use it while watching a math tutorial on YouTube or an online math program.
How Are You Feeling Today?: an excellent way of discussing feeling and emotions and how our emotions affect others.
Thinking Time: Logic puzzles to complete.
Letter Doodles (just fun coloring which also gives the child a different way to ‘feel’ how letters are made)
Nature Study: have your child go outside and draw what he sees. He can also use his nature books to copy an illustration or cut something from a magazine or print from the computer and paste it on the Nature Study page.
Fun Writing Practice pages give your child the opportunity to create a whole new font, practice handwriting, or if on the younger side copy the alphabet.
Animal Quiz, how much do you know about this animal
World News Today: tell the stories in words or pictures.
Listening Time: Use classical music or an audio book and color, doodle, and/or draw.
Depending on your child’s age you can have him dig as deep into topics and subjects and write more or less. For an older student require more writing with some illustrations. With a younger child have him illustrate more with some writing maybe a word pointing to a part of the picture. These journals allow you create a customized plan for whatever age or stage your son is in.
Journals are ideal for students with Dyslexia, Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD, and other learning challenges. Sarah Janisse Brown is a dyslexic therapist and creator of Dyslexia Games (www.dyslexiagames.com). Sarah has helped many moms Flip to Fun-Schooling using her Curriculum Journals.
