Core Journals B1
These are journals for those just entering Level B or for struggling older B students.
Fun-Schooling Journal (ages 6-9) – single rabbit cover
Fun-Schooling Journal (1st, 2nd, 3rd Grade) – Treehouse Cover
My First Fun-Schooling Journal (ages 5-9) – Ballerina Cover
Fun-Schooling Beginners Minecraft Journal (1st, 2nd, 3rd Grade) Download Version – this one is thicker at 296 pages. It has less writing than the Minecraft Journal for older B2+. I placed it with the younger journals so it won’t get missed. This journal is great for struggling readers & writers. My 12yr. old son uses this one along with another Core Journal for an older student like Dino Doodle.
– these are great to take on the go and get some school in. If using as a Core Journal, your child may need a notebook to go along with this or extra paper. These two journals do have a Bible page.

Core Journals -Secular:
Many of these are for ages 7-17 and this is because you customize it for your child by using books at their reading level. To get the most out of these journals it’s best if your child can read at a 2nd-grade level or higher. Many with level B1 I would recommend your child be closer to age 9.
I put ages next to many of them so you can get an idea of the level, whether it’s on the higher or lower end of Level B.

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.
Creative Writing Journal Level B1/B2 -width of the lines are a bit wider than 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).

United States Handbook Level B2 (7th-12th grade) the recommended grade is 7th+ but I think a younger child can handle this (with help if needed) the pages gently guide the student. Use books to fill in the pages and help younger children if the computer is needed (personally, I have my kids use mostly books with this one).
Travel Dreams is another that is recommended for 7th grade and above but can be used with younger kids, ages 10+ this one was recommended in the Starter Pack for children 10+ which was created by Sarah.
