A 4 Year Old's Nature Notebook

One of the advantages of homeschooling is that there are few boundaries for learning. We aren't stuck in a certain grade level curriculum and our 4 year old can participate in most things we do (at his own level of course). He, too, has created a nature notebook. Not because I told him he had to, but because he saw his sisters working on theirs and he wanted one, too. He has an interest in learning and I'm letting him go with it. (I LOVE this stuff!!!) Here are a couple of photographs of his nature notebook.

A leaf that he found and wanted to keep. I probably should have dated this page for him, but it was from sometime last summer AND before I realized he was calling this his nature notebook.



His pictures of the hailstorm the other day.

He dictated the following for me to write on his page:
"God showed His power with the lightning and thunder. God shows steep power with lightning and the thunder is loud."
I have to admit that I don't understand what "steep" power is, but somehow it makes sense to him.


This is just the front cover of his notebook.

I love this! For years the kids have been bringing all sorts of God's stuff home - rocks, twigs, leaves. There have been tears over the particular 'rock' or 'stick' that got left behind. I wish we had been journaling back then. Good for R-boy!!! You go find those leaves and sticks and rocks and storms - climb those mountains and listen to His thunder!!! God is awesome! Isn't it great when we get a glimpses of what a child's potential is and what their future might hold.
