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.
9-year-old A is a super creative kiddo, so we were excited to find the Homeschooling Creative Girls - Library Based Curriculum Journal:
This Curriculum Journal is geared toward ages 9 to 14 - Students must be able to read on a 2nd grade level to get the most out of this method. Younger children will need more help, older students can work independently.
It will last for three months if you use it 20 days per month. Each day's activities include about 5 or 6 pages of homeschooling bliss. This Homeschooling Curriculum Journal is for girls who love to learn using a variety of methods, and for moms who want their kids to be more independent with their schoolwork. Mom only needs to help for the first the days, and then the student can "Do-It-Herself"
This workbook includes over 400 pages! This creates 60 days worth of lessons and activities, that is about two hours of guided learning time every day.
Besides having lovely coloring pages throughout, this book also allows for creativity with nature study, copywork, menu building, recipe writing and much more!
There are also pages for Spelling Practice, Math Practice, Reading Time, Film Study, Listening Time, Observation Time, Emotion and Mood Evaluation, List Making, Therapeutic Coloring, and several other fun and educational activities.
Everything is easy to understand and I don't think a even knows how much she is learning by using this "fun" curriculum:)
This homeschooling handbook was created by Sarah Janisse Brown, a dyslexia therapist and game designer with ten children. Sarah has over 25 years of homeschooling experience.
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, which we supplement with Kahn Academy.
This workbook is appropriate for dyslexic students, it includes Art and Logic Games to help with dyslexia, and uses the Open Dyslexic Font for easy reading, but it's great for kiddos without dyslexia as well.
A loves all of the different activities and I love that it's a great opportunity for her to be more independent in her thinking and creativity.
This journal provides a loosely structured curriculum that includes lots of creative outlets, while teaching at the same time.
Teaching kiddos to find information from so many sources improves their ability to learn in our ever-changing world and that works perfectly for our homeschooling family at this stage in our journey:)
If you have a creative kiddo and are looking for a more child-led curriculum, check out the Creative Girls Journal and Sarah Janisse Brown's other great homeschool resources!
