Keeping a spring journal is a wonderful way to track the newness of the season in the world around you.
Journaling is a wonderful way to allow your children a bit more freedom in their writing.
Sometimes they need the opportunity to just write.
Proper grammar, spelling, penmanship and specific topics can kill the love of writing even for those that love it.
Those that don’t love writing will definitely not be interested in improving their writing skills if there are always rules involved.
Have you ever considered giving your kids the freedom to journal just to enjoy themselves?
Journaling is a place where there are no right or wrong answers. It is a safe place to express yourself without the rules that come with writing assignments.
The spring season is full of inspiration for journaling.
The weather is fresh. Animals are scurrying out and about.
Trees are budding. Flowers are blooming.
It is time for gardening. The sun is shining.
While journaling has never been a consistent part of my life, someday I hope to have more time to put into it.
I truly do believe that journaling is helpful for everyone, so I encourage you to make time for both yourself and your kids to journal.
When my children began journaling, I started by setting a timer for 5 minutes.
That’s all it takes sometimes. Just a set amount of time to get started.
From there, the words begin to flow.
I created this spring journal in the hopes that you and your children will make it a habit to sit down together daily and write a bit throughout the spring season.
Inside this Spring Journal, you’ll find journaling pages in 3 different styles for Kindergarten through High School, weather trackers, calendars and more for each of the months falling in the spring season; March, April, May and June.
