A Year in My Life

Image Credit:  Usborne Books & More
A kids’ journal quite unlike any other, this beautifullyillustrated book invites children to record a year of their life by filling in the 365 quirky drawing and writing activities—one for every day of the year. Activities are fun, quick—so no excuse to miss any days!—and imaginatively offbeat, so journalers might be invited to “Draw a scene that happened today, but give the people animal heads” or “Write down every feeling you remember feeling today” or simply just “Sum up today in a single word.”  At the end of the 365 days, children will end up with an amusing, creative, and offbeat record of a year in their life to treasure in years to come.

Common words, or high-Frequency words are words that appear most frequently in the written and spoken language, such as "the", "or", "of", "as", "it". These words do not mean a lot on their own but contribute to the meaning of a sentence. In addition, these words are often phonetically irregular and have an abstract meaning which make them hard to learn. Lots of practice will make it easier for children to learn how to write and how to pronounce these words, as well as knowing when to use them appropriately, thanks to this entertaining wipe-clean book
