Journaling for Preschoolers

My daughter has always loved reading, but is even more into it now that she is the one doing the reading. This past week we took care of our friends' fish while they went away on vacation. My daughter thought it would be nice if we made a book describing what the fish did while at our house.

She put a lot of thought into the activities throughout the week, staging of the pictures and thinking about what each page would say. Later on she helped me cut & glue each picture, and write the "story".

She loved doing it so much that we decided we are going to make another one for her to keep. Her favorite stuffed animal is an owl named Chickie. So, be on the look-out for "A day in the life of Chickie the Owl" in your local bookstore!

I'm visiting from Frugal Friday. I love the journaling idea! Preschoolers love to read their own words.
