Jump Into Journaling This Summer!

Looking for a fun, educational activity for your kids this summer? Jump into journaling! Writing during the summer months is a fun way to help your children maintain and improve their language art skills.


According to Very Well Family, journal writing helps your child improve spelling, grammar, written communication, and reading skills. In addition, it allows kids to be creative and not on electronic devices!  Summer Solutions offers lined journals for both primary and intermediate grades. When journal writing is paired with our  English Grammar & Mechanics and Reading Comprehension workbooks, children get the most out of their summer learning.

“Journaling is one of the most important tools a parent has at their disposal for practicing writing skills with their children, especially teenagers.”

Amada Morin – The Benefits of Journaling for Kids

Encourage journaling at home.

Journaling is a great way to keep your child engaged in writing. Every child has different interests, hobbies, and learning styles. Journal entries can be about whatever your child finds interesting and important, which will encourage them to keep writing. In addition to the educational benefits, journaling is a great way for children to process and express their thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
