Hello! I'm beginning to gather supplies for our upcoming school year. What do you like for a nature journal for your young children. I think I definitely want something that is bound (as opposed to loose papers). We can always glue in special pages when we use them, but my children prefer open ended drawing/labeling, etc. What size? Is a certain type of paper more suitable for drawing nature? Where is the best place to find them?
Also, I was planning to use Nature Study as our sole science studies this next school year. I'm beginning to wonder if that is enough.... Any thoughts? My plan was to use The Outdoor Hour Challenge as our weekly focus, adding in extra books about the topic to explore further. We may also read some more in the Among the.....People series that we already own and Christian Liberty Nature Reader for my 2nd grader for reading practice.
This is the first year I will be completely CM, and I think I'm both excited and a little nervous! (As a classroom teacher, I always got those back to school jitters of excitement, too!)
