Is reading a constant battle in your homeschool?
When one of my daughters began seriously struggling with our reading curriculum, I had to do something drastic. I knew there were some underlying vision issues causing her to be a little below level, but the main issue was that she hated the subject.
We needed a change. So I dusted off my M.A.Ed. and created a reading curriculum that would fit ANY book that piqued her interest. Together she and I created something that changed everything. And we want you to have it, too.
Meet the Reading Journal.
Click here to check out my daughter's review of the journal.
The Reading Journal is comprised of 28 unique lessons that focus on vocabulary, word study, comprehension, and higher level thinking skills. The journal features each lesson 6 times throughout the year, providing just the right amount of practice without too much monotony.
About once a week, students are asked to evaluate the content of their book based on God's truth. They will compare/contrast with Scripture, consider a character's behavior/influence, and even write out how they might share Jesus with the character.
Once a child learns how to read, he/she needs to continue skill-building throughout the elementary years. The Reading Journal provides the necessary practice for grades 2-8 while still allowing the student to choose what he/she would most enjoy reading.
