3rd, 4th & 5th Grade - Fun-Schooling Journal - For Christian Families: Study 20 Interesting and Relevant Topics - 365 Delight-Directed Learning Pages, Ideal for ages 8-12.


Students will use this Core Curriculum Journal to study 20 different topics, while focusing on their passions! This Journal is less "open ended" than other Core Journals, for students who need more structure.


This journal offers a careful balance of direction and freedom. Students will study 20 different topics with this journal, some traditional subjects and some topics chosen by the child.


They’ll need access to library books, audio books, tutorials, documentaries, and classical music to get the most out of this journal as they cover the basic school subjects.


This book is sure to delight all students, especially struggling and reluctant learners. We included Bible study time in this book as well for Christian families to grow in faith together.

This journal is perfect for students with Dyslexia, ADHD, Autism and Asperger’s.

Amazon Reviews:
Emma’s children love this book:
“Such an outstanding product written for children. My girls love this book so much. We use this as a supplement to their regular homeschooling. We couldn't be happier with how excited they get to do the pages in this book. There are so many different things that appeal to children on so many levels. It differently doesn't just seek the same medium that's for sure. This book is an outstanding homeschooling tool.”

“This is my favorite from all the journals and books at Thinking Tree that we own. This is a Christian themed journal so there are Bible coloring pages followed by a blank page where the student writes out the story- if they don't know it they can look it up from the reference. The other pages allow for my daughter to study things that are interesting to her (see the other reviews for photos), and her journal is the first thing she does every day out of all her school work. Some of the pages repeat- which I actually like, because it allows the kids to work through the book without needing mom every single page for "help".”
