Super excited for all you who have little ones. Sarah has created two adorable Fun-Schooling books for your littles. Way cute!

I have five boys so I love, love, when Sarah creates a journal for them. Although it doesn't mention for boys it does fort builders and tree climbers and has a more boyish theme (but of course girls can use it too).
As with the journals for older kiddos you will have your child check out books from the library that they are interested in. What do they want to learn about? With the books that they selected they will use them to fill in the pages of their journal.
I love the audio/video boxes. Here your child can watch a YouTube video, documentary, or educational video and take notes! How cute.Your little guy taking notes. He can also listen to an audio book and illustrate for note taking.
The opposite page he can practice the alphabet via coloring and/or tracing.
The two pages above are some of my favorite pages. I love the fun grammar lesson (not that you have to tell your little guy) where he describes the picture and mom, dad, older siblings, or even grandparents can help write the words.
The Learning Time page has lots of neat things to illustrate, draw, or write. There is Art Time, Spelling Time, Nature Study, & Math Time. Lots of fun learning.
I love that Sarah includes faces that show feeling. Sometimes little ones have a hard time expressing how they feel with words. This is a great time for mom and son (or daughter) to sit and talk about how we feel our emotions etc. And when mom or dad isn't around it will be fun to look and see what your little one put. Great way to open up discussions. For example: "Jimmy hit me and I felt . . " and your child can point to one of the faces.
More pages . . .
I like these maze type pages. I think Sarah needs to make a traveling journal with lots of the mazes.
Another journal that is really adorable from The Thinking Tree is Laura & Leah's Fun-Schooling Journal for 2: Learning Together!
I absolutely love this idea. What a great way for sibling to bond and parents too. It would be super special to have dad use this with his little girl. How sweet is that and girls love having daddy's attention.
This cute journal is meant to be used with someone else. A sibling, friend, parent, etc.
Some of pages are similar to the the My First Homeschooling Journal.
The My First Homeschooling Journal for Tree Climbers & Fort Builders doesn't have the Math Mystery pages. As you can see the Math Mysteries are a bit challenging if you are using this with a younger child but that's the beauty of it. Pull out some manipulatives or watch a fun video on YouTube and figure out the math mystery together.
How cute and fun to write a message in each sign. Your children can write back and forth or make a secret code!
Next I wanted to show how both books have similar pages. The first book is the Tree Climbers & Fort Builder's book and the one below it is the Laura & Leah book.
And watch some video reviews!
