Scatter Books, Journaling and Doodles

Regardless of what Lily reported to Gramma and Grampa today, we did, in fact, do some school today.  We read, she did some phonics/word work, we will read some more.  We made a trip to the bookstore to pick out some new reading material.  But we both sat down together to journal and doodle this morning.  I have a Scatter Book where I keep track of my {brilliant :-)} scattered thoughts…thus ScatterBook since it is all over the place and holds all the little scraps of ideas I want to have down but don’t really belong anywhere specific.  I can’t take credit for this idea but my homeschool mentor introduced it to me.

So the top book is mine and last night Lily wondered if she could start one, too.  She liked what she saw in my book.  I was more than happy to let her figure out how to hold her own creative space.  We used some special pen markers and worked on it together today.  I journaled a little bit and she did, too.  I have to agree with her sentiment.  I like to have fun, too!  And this was pretty fun and special to do with her.  I appreciate how her doodles look similar to mine.  Imitation is the best form of flattery, isn’t that how the saying goes?
