Last year it took Mark forever to get started on his written assignments. He would just freeze and get all stressed and I would have to calm him down and get him focused on what to do. I thought we had made some progress but he wanted a book the other day and tried to access his line of credit at the Bank of Dad. I agreed but made him promise to write me a book report on what he learned. After a couple of days of Mark stressing all out about it, I wrote out a quick outline and things went much smoother and he gave me a pretty good book report without the stress and suffering that often comes with it. I typed up what I had put together, added a bit of formatting, stole some ideas from some other book journals and printed out 50 copies for him to keep in a binder. I also saved it to a PDF and uploaded it here in case any of you want to see what I did or make your own book journal for your kids. I think I am going to put together a weekend trip journal and a Adventure Around Town Journal as well.
