Introducing our brand new Guided Journals for our younger students!

Our Guided Journals integrate scripture reading, handwriting skills, spelling, writing, critical thinking, art, speech and presentation skills, and more in one easy-to-use workbook. Students begin to put thoughts on paper by writing on a new topic each week. Daily writing prompts help students get started and train young minds to think analytically.

Each journal page begins with a Bible verse. Students copy the verse in their best handwriting. It encourages them to read good literature, practice punctuation such as quotation marks, and incorporate a devotional or Bible memorization element to their daily journaling experience.

The weekly journal topic creates consistency throughout the week while the daily writing prompt teaches students to ask and answer questions as part of the writing process. The daily sentences may be collected at the end of the week to create a longer paper on a unified topic. Students learn how to write a little at a time without getting overwhelmed. As the students advance, writing more sentences everyday, they will eventually be able to put them together into five paragraph essays.

  Opposite each journal page is a blank frame for artwork. Students use this space to include art or visual aids to complement their writing. They may draw, create collages, paste pictures, or include diagrams or graphs. If a student is having trouble thinking of what to write, he or she may spark creativity by starting with a picture. The spiral bound flip book style allows students to practice speaking skills by giving a presentation to family or friends, showcasing the art on one side and reading their notes or journal entry on the other side.

Each book is designed to fill one semester with 12 weeks of assigned topics plus 4 weeks of project pages for special topics or reports. Parents have the flexibility to choose the length of the semester and assign topics tailored to the individual student by using the project pages. The Guided Journals are designed to dovetail with other studies to keep things simple for students and parents.
