Aren’t they just adorable?!?! Sarah made these journals for her younger kiddos because they wanted journals too, just like their older siblings!

The pages in these journals are great for the beginner learners and/or struggling readers. Included in these journals are some pages of art & logic which are great for children with reading confusion, letter reversals and of course dyslexia.

Sarah has a knack for creating beautiful books that are fun thus the title Fun-Schooling and as always these journals are written with the Open Dyslexia Font.
The Thinking Tree Fun Schooling
There are so many fun pages in these books. Below I’ll share a few pages from each amazing journal.
Each journal starts with the instruction page and Book Time page.
The Thinking Tree

This cute journal with the adorable rabbits is recommended for ages 3-7 and includes:
  • Thinking Time Pages: fun art and logic
  • Reading Time: gives them space to draw a picture from each book
  • Nature Study Page: they can go outside and draw what they see from nature
  • Coloring Pages: some are more detailed than others but all are beautiful (mom might want to join in and have some fun with these pages!)
  • Draw Anything Page: this is a page with a border. There is room to draw a picture of anything your child wants. A space to draw a pet and another space to draw a wild animal.
  • Coloring Time: a different type of coloring page, your child will color some rabbits, a strawberry, picture frames, carrots etc. The pages are amazing!
  • Movie Time: where your little one can watch a documentary, educational program, YouTube tutorial, etc. and draw and/or write (if he can) about it. There are so many kid friendly shows like Big Truck/Trains, Animal Planet, etc.
  • Math Time: to make maps, graphs, or practice math problems. You can even play the game “Lines & Dots” where you make a box and put your initial in it.
  • Writing Time: a page to copy something from one of their books or they can narrate while you write it down for them.
  • Letter Time: a page to practice writing letters.

Sarah, the author and creator of The Thinking Tree journals is truly artistically blessed!

And there you have it! I hope this post helps you with choosing which beginner journal is right for your little one.



  1. These are growing on me and I took a closer look at the younger ones today so I was excited to see your post! I'm still not sure if they would be a good fit for my Bo (he will be 5 at the end of the year) - I'm not sure he is ready for that much writing (like the copywork page). But, today he started reversing numbers so I"m not sure if I should be concerned (all my kiddos have done that at that age), but I don't think it could hurt to train his brain this young. Thanks for sharing! I may consider these for K - he may be more ready for them by then. :)

    P.S. I've enjoyed all your posts sharing and your lovely journaling!

  2. Thank you Michelle!!! Yes, there is a bit of writing for a preschooler. I think waiting for K is a good idea.

    It's so hard when they are young to know if the letter reversals. With Brent I didn't think anything of it and he still writes his 5 & s backwards! I feel so bad. Hopefully by the time he's done with Dyslexia Games it will be corrected.

  3. Thank you for posting all the wonderful pictures of the pages. It really helps to get a better feel. I think I'm pretty much sold on them but really have to work them into our budget.

  4. You're welcome. I can see your girls using these. They'd make the pages beautiful!. I have so many ideas for the journals swimming around in my head :)
