Writing and reading have such a strong connection that is essential for our children to develop both areas simultaneously. An after -school journal is a great way for our kids to write down their thoughts, ideas, and maybe even what they did at school! I had Elly write a list of the things she wanted to buy seeds for and plant after a trip to the Feed-and-Seed store.
