Adventures in Guided Journaling: Printable journal pages for kids Hello and welcome! Here you'll find a selection of my free, printable, guided journal pages for kids. Just like my original guided journal pages these pages combine fill-in-the-blank journal prompts with unconventional to-do lists, game-show-inspired lightning rounds and oodles of hand-drawn doodles. There are also some key differences: I've made the lines a little thicker and the outer border wider for colouring,I've added a place for the child's name beside the date, I've reduced the number of prompts per page to make it easier to complete a page in one or a few sittings,I've simplified the prompts slightly to make them more suitable for younger journal keepers.In terms of age range, I'm thinking grades three to six.

Phonics Free printable worksheets © Contributed by Leanne Guenther There are differences in opinion about whether using phonics is useful in teaching children to read. My personal opinion is that everyone learns differently -- try a variety of things with your kids until you find what works for them. My oldest daughter just sort of magically read books -- natural ability and lots of family reading time were the causes I think -- she didn't often sound out words or enjoy playing word games. My younger daughter was very keen on phonics lessons and constantly asked to play rhyming word games and activities. Word families really appealed to her and to this day (grade 6) she enjoys word based "puzzles" like word searches and crosswords (my eldest daughter would rather play soccer *grin*).

Word Skills Board Game Words Skills is a fun game that is easy to play and can be used to review word skills such as indicating the beginning sound of a word, the ending sound of a word, middle sound of a word, rhymes, synonyms, and antonyms. It can be used as a stand alone board game or as a supplement for reviewing the 7 core phonics units at Lanternfish ESL (or any other similar phonics program). Why Word Skills? Word skills are a valuable tool for students as they set out on the road to becoming independent learners. Being able to talk about words is an essential skill language learners will need as they interact with their teachers to figure out spelling, pronunciation, and meaning of new words they encounter.
