Resource of the Week
Journal Ideas for Kids: Do you want to encourage your children (or yourself) to journal but it's hard to stay on track? This Is Me Challenge is a website with writing challenges published on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month. You can learn about how it works here, or jump right in with any of the challenges. I really like the ideas for recording a personal history found in the 12 Ways To Record Your Life post -- they are ideas that if done over a period of time kids will really love because there are so many options. Journaling can range from photos to collages/scrapbooks to index cards to traditional written journals, and there are ideas for every personality type.
