Whether it’s spring or fall where you live, there are no doubt some dramatic changes taking place this month. Use our journal prompts to encourage your child to take special notice of what’s happening in the natural world, to spark a sense of wonder, and to preserve her observations and memories.
Here are some resources that may be helpful in supporting some of the suggested explorations for this month’s journal prompts:
- Learn more about the micro-habitats of fallen logs: What’s Under the Log?; A Log’s Life; Project Learning Tree’s “The Fallen Log” activity guide
