I recently stumbled across author Sarah Janisse Brown's Homeschool Journals and fell in  love with her simple approach to "fun schooling" that allows room for kiddos of all ages to explore their creativity in ways that work for their particular learning styles.

D is an active 7-year-old boy who is currently at about a 4th-5th grade level.  Because he gets bored easily with traditional curriculum options, we were excited to find Homeschooling Active Boys - Do-It-Yourself - Spring Journal: 3 Month Curriculum Handbook - Library Based Homeschooling:


This book is geared toward ages 7 to 14 and students should be able to read on a 2nd grade level to get the most out of this method. the books uses the Open Dyslexic Font to make it more readable for dyslexic students.


This Homeschooling Curriculum Journal is for boys who love to learn using a variety of methods, and for moms who want their kids to be more independent with their schoolwork.


This workbook includes 60 days worth of lessons and activities, with 6 pages for each day, providing about two hours of guided learning time.


Use this book 5 days per week and it will last three months, or use one page a day for year round inspration. Keep your eclectic homeschooling adventure organized and interesting!

This curriculum handbook is wonderful for unschoolers, eclectic learners, delight directed homeschoolers and busy families. If you have babies and toddlers who need a lot of attention the older children can use this journal for everything, except math. This workbook is appropriate for dyslexic students, it includes Art & Logic Games to help with dyslexia, and uses the Open Dyslexic Font for easy reading.

D is really enjoying this curriculum!  It offers him plenty of ways to focus his energy and I don't think he even realizes how much he is acutally learning...it's just so fun!
