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.
