We’re excited about our new junior notebooking journals!
The girls begged for cursive work and I found these fun cursive workbooks that have animals for each letter.
It’s like cross-curricular with science! super!
Tori taught herself how to write her name in cursive from our wall border!
Tori practices her cursive on the Aquadoodle.
Tori loves Draw Right Now. We just got the whole set on sale! (her cat is upside down – haha)
I made pretty notebooking journals!
I covered their new writing journals with scrapbook paper and ribbon.
Tori has a blue striped front and Katie’s is green argyle.
I plan to put something decorative on the fronts, but haven’t gotten the stuff yet.
The backs are both Hawaiian print. We lived in Hawaii for three years. They girls still call it home.
I added a schedule on the inside cover with another fun paper cover for each girl.
Weekly writing schedule:
Mondays, they write about anything they did over the weekend.
Tuesdays are writing from our weekly vocabulary or spelling list.
Wednesday is narration day from history, science, or literature reading.
Thursdays are dictation. This is our most difficult writing task.
Fridays are fun choice – favorites from the week.
This is now the first thing the girls want to do during our school day! They love it!
This week we loved this fun printable and foldable from Scholastic: wallet words.
They had to determine which picture began with which blend: BR, GR, or TR.
Then we placed the cards in the wallet and folded it up. They loved showing it to Daddy!
