It’s winter, and your kids may be home more because of remote learning. Duke and Daisy spent their time to find something that will help your kids feel better and have some fun while they’re spending more time indoors and away from their everyday lifestyles. They’re enthused to help kids spend time writing in a personal journal. Come along with Duke and Daisy you’ll find out how the journal will help your kids deal with their feelings, improve their writing skills, and increase their communication skills.






For kids who have difficulty expressing their needs verbally or making decisions about things, keeping a journal gives them a way to learn and gain emotional organization. When they put their impressions on paper, they can go back and explore their beliefs more objectively.

Writing Skills

When kids write to journal prompts, their writing skills improve. They may even grow into a future bestselling novelist. Many of the journal’s prompts allow the kids to improve their spelling and grammar, improve their reading skills, and improve their written communication skills.

Enhance Communication Skills

Here are some various types of journals that help kids grow their communication skills.

Nature Journals: These journals are a way to help kids keep track of their observations about the natural world.

Vacation journals help kids chronicle their vacation using combinations of writing, picture, and souvenirs.

Duke and Daisy found some journals to help kids discover more wonders of their personal growth.
