If reading is a constant battle in your homeschool, you're going to love this!
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.

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.

Great resource!! My daughter loves reading books of her own choice. This allows her to think more analytically about the information while also making it fun for her!
I had been looking for something my 2nd grader could use to correspond with reading. He loves to read on his own and was really beyond a lot of the learning-to-read curriculums out there. This is a perfect tool; it allows him to free read, but then also comprehend was he had read and analyze it. The bonus is that I۪ll be able to use it with each of my children for multiple years.
We absolutely love this resource! My son was struggling with comprehension, main idea, and settings of the stories he was reading. These worksheets have really helped him to pay attention throughout the story and really take in the details. He has discovered a love of reading. I really did not expect that! I would highly recommend this to use in any classroom, traditional OR homeschool (like us!).
We have been using this journal for a few weeks. I have to say I’m enjoying this resource immensely. My kids are 7, 9 and 10 and each of them are benefiting from it. The big kids can use it independently and I’m having fun working on it with my 7 year old. Thank you!
