Exploring Nature With Children: A guided journal is a companion journal for your child as you work through the Exploring Nature With Children curriculum.

The journal is divided into seasons and months, with each month having four weeks of guided journaling for your child, directly following the Exploring Nature With Children Curriculum.

There are journaling pages for 48 weeks of guided nature study. Each week contains:

  • A title page.

A prompt related to the theme, space to sketch, and a place for your child to record the date and time. There is also a weather box for your child to draw a symbol to represent the weather at the time they are journaling. You may wish to have your child do any paintings onto watercolour paper, and later mount them onto this first weekly page.

  • Poetry copy-work.

Included is the week’s poem in either print or cursive for your child to trace over. Please note that some poems are longer than others; you may wish to have your child only copy a portion of the poem, depending on their ability.

  • My art study page

A place for your child to either paste in a copy of the art work of the week, their own sketch, or a narration about the piece.

Include the name of the work and the artist name under the page title.

  • Extension activity pages.

Guided pages for the all extension activities that require a written or sketched response, within the Exploring Nature With Children curriculum.

At the end of the book, you will find:

  • Calendar of Firsts

A monthly page for your child to keep a list of the firsts they see in nature. For example, when your child sees the first Bluebells blooming, they make a note of this on their calendar page, along with the date and where they saw them.

  • Nature Books I Have Read This Year

Pages to record the books that your child has read, or has had read to them.

My Nature Journal Week 31

I don’t have much to share with you this week; the girls have been away this week riding, and I have been pounding the keyboard, working on the soon-to-be-released Guided Journal to accompany Exploring Nature With Children.

I have been able to work on my Calendar of Firsts, however. I sketched the Ragwort that is filling the meadow right now, and a wee common wasp that was buzzing around. I also noted the rain. The never ending, heavy rain!


Happy exploring!

An Important Update

I am very pleased to announce that the Exploring Nature With Children: A guided journal is almost ready for release!
Whilst working on the guided journal, I have taken the opportunity to update some of the poetry selections within the original ENWC curriculum.
The new guided journal will contain pre-printed copy-work passages for your child, which will reflect the new poetry selections.
I am offering the updated, second edition of Exploring Nature With Children free to all customers who purchased the first edition. I have just sent out a download link to all my customers. Please remember that it goes directly to your PayPal-linked email address and comes from Payhip, the company that host my book online. Be sure to double check your spam filter!
I will update you once Exploring Nature With Children: a guided journal is available to purchase.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Thank you, as always for your continued support.
Happy exploring!
