Students can work independently, in a small group, or as a class. All you need to add are library books, podcasts, videos, and art supplies. Then document your learning in these guided journals.
Suggested Age Range- 8+
A wide range of ages can use these journals by selecting age-appropriate study materials.
The Baker’s Fun-Schooling Journal: Document learning in multiple school subjects while focusing on baking. Students will work through baking challenges, try new recipes, and get to be creative in the kitchen. An excellent way to introduce basic home economics.
The Chef’s Fun-Schooling Journal: A curriculum handbook that covers many school subjects while focusing on cooking. Students will work through cooking challenges, try new recipes, and get to be creative.
Yum-Schooling: 15 recipes to teach children how to bake, calculate, measure, spell, use logic, serve others, apply science, and be creative. Create delicious dishes to share with the whole family while working on building your skills and learning. Note- this book references Bible verses but is otherwise a secular curriculum; these portions can be omitted or substituted if desired.
Smoothie Time: Packed full of nutrition for the mind and body. Students will follow the recipes to make delicious, healthy smoothies and milkshakes. They’ll complete fun educational activities and research projects, learn home economics, color, do word searches, and research what they can do with that leftover banana peel.
Below are a few options for scheduling your Fun-Schooling day. There is no “wrong” way to use Fun-Schooling Journals. Be creative! Please reach out if you need help with planning/scheduling.
We recommend the same number of pages per day as a child’s age. An 8-year-old would work on 8 pages/day, a 14-year-old would work on 14 pages/day. One page is a single side of the paper- not both.
Option 1- Pure loop. Stick everything in a pile. Let your child decide how many pages to complete in each journal as they work through the stack. After they finish with a journal, it goes to the bottom of the pile. This is the most child-led and relaxed method.
Option 2- Half the pages per day from one journal and half from another, completing two journals per day.
Option 3- Theme days. For example, Monday Core Journal. Tuesday, Language Arts. Wednesday, Geography- etc.
Option 4- Half pages from a core journal, the rest from one single subject journal.
Option 5- Work in-depth on one journal and complete it thoroughly, then move on to the following journal. Most journals will last six-twelve weeks with this method.
