What is in the Children Around the World Journals?

Your student will love to delve into these colorful, interactive journals.

Prayer and Personal Journal:

This resource includes information as to what kinds of challenges children around the world face, and makes kids aware of what they do to make their way in the world.  In between are sprinkled stories of actual children around the world who’ve overcome difficult circumstances or who are trying to build a life for themselves.  This journal also includes interactive pages for kids to journal about what they are learning, and active service ideas, including prayer charts.  The resource is designed to move your children, and change their hearts.

This book should be challenging to your family, helping you to discover just how much you take for granted, and how much you have to be thankful for.  It should affect your children in deep and wonderful ways, allowing them to look into the needs of others and develop a heart of service for those in need.

Make-Your-Own Travels Diary:

Interactive pages feature tons of content found nowhere else in the program, plus each page requires students to show what they’ve learned.  Each week they’ll create a country map, write down essential facts about the nation, and complete drawings of native costumes according to specific guidelines as to what people in that nation wear.  They’ll also complete interactive pages on notable landmarks, remarkable natural places, or geographical wonders.  They’ll love filling in pages on cultural traditions, discovering Irish jigs, Russian tsars, or Spanish flan.  Pages profile rulers and humanitarians, best-loved foods or music, long-enjoyed games or holiday celebrations and so much more!

What is in the Children Around the World Activity Resources?

WinterPromise considers itself a curriculum that embraces the “Experience Approach,” offering Charlotte-Mason style learning opportunities with up-to-date materials that make the most of technology, too.  In Children Around the World  you’ll encounter a lot of our signature “Experiences" in the resources: Fun & Traditions, Cultural Planning Guide, and Working Children!

Here are just a sampling of the experiences your student can choose to make a part of their year:

  • Fun & Traditions:

    • This is no “make-a-model-of the-Leaning-Tower-of-Pisa-out-of-packing-noodles” resource!  No way!  The activities are practical and doable!  Activities include easy paper crafts, investigations online, designing cultural items, can-do hands-on projects, traditional crafts, holiday celebrations, tasty (and simple) recipes that aren’t too exotic to enjoy, specialized vocabulary to know about a culture, children’s games, creating simple cultural clothing items, musical experiences, toys from other places, and cultural art forms.  The fun is endless, and so are the ways you’ll get to know thirty countries around the globe!
  • Cultural Planning Guide:

    • This resource guides you in planning your weekly Cultural Gatherings with your family.  It gives you the information you need to pull together a fun family night or weekend get-together around the cultural studies you’ll complete this year.  Instructions are included for how to get what you need for each gathering, what to plan ahead, and what kinds of things you’ll need to do in advance.  This resource makes it easy to pull off the Gatherings with a minimum of planning!
  • Working Children:

    • Many of us are only slightly aware of the problems of child labor both here in the United States, but especially in developing countries.  Around the world there are children who are forced into lives of labor, made to complete jobs that adults are too big or too reluctant to do themselves.  Thousands of children in countries around the world work too many hours.  They are denied the opportunity to be children, and they cannot go to school.  This book will help you understand their lives, and allow you to see what you can do to help the problem of child labor.
