Writing Journals Level B
To help understand the width of the lines – I explain by comparing to composition books. College Ruled and Regular (regular meaning, not college ruled or primary ruled)
Secret Diary A Book of Dreams B2+ the lines in this journal are similar to college ruled and would probably work best with 5th grade and up. If the lines are too narrow, use two lines to make one letter.
Hobby Time Adventure Journal Level B1+ -regular composition with the width of the lines.
Curious Creatures Notebook: Colore-Doodle-Learn- & Write Level B1+(ages 5-10) Level A students can use this- because of the width of the lines (reg. composition book) I placed it in Level B.
All About Animals (all ages) This writing journal may be used with Level A & C as well. I placed it here because students at this level may appreciate it more. I think age and ability wise it’s best suited for Level B students. Lines width of a regular composition book.

All About Food (all ages) Level B because of the width of the lines and size of the journals (can be used with Leve A & C students as well).

Creative Writing Notebook
The Singer and the Songwriter *An idea book* is a creative writing journal but with instruction those who want to write songs and love to sing. Please see the “Peek Inside” on Amazon and my YouTube Video. Both have the same interior.
Wordless Book – a great way to get those creative juices going. Have your child practice storytelling. Depending on the child’s age he/she can write stories or dictate them to you.
Storytelling Book -There are no lined pages, just lots of colorful pictures! Sarah and Joshua Brown took all the pictures on one of their adventures!
