FREE high school journaling prompts

I have a high school boy who doesn’t particularly like to write, what boys do?  So I had to think about how I could get him to write, without doing it as a “school lesson.”  I came up with this.

I created well over 180 journaling intro’s that he can journal and write about each day of the school year.  I am going to take this list and cut out each question and glue it in a spiral bound notebook.  Everyday, I will have my son, answer the question that is on the top of the page, in journal form.  This will allow me to  give some feedback to him and check his writing skills.  I will use a red marker to correct any errors and let him look them over each day.

I did this for my daughter as well, with a little bit more thought provoking questions.  But this will be good for my reluctant writer.

Hope you enjoy!

  1. Hi There! Would you ever consider putting only your reading portion of the first grade complete workbook in a book? I have struggling readers who are older. The reading portion is working, but they don’t need the math part. Would it be okay with you if I retype the reading lessons in the dyslexie font for my own personal use? When I get it compiled I would be more than happy to send a copy to you for your website if you would like to have it for your homeschooling resources.

    • Oh that would be wonderful!!! I would love to have a copy and I am sure there is another mother out there that would appreciate it as well. Just send me an email when you are finished —I actually just looked, I do have it in .doc format—I created it in Office Word , if it would be easier to copy and paste instead of a PDF. Just let me know if that would benefit you. You can send email to

  2. I was really excited to see this PDF of the reading lessons done on the Dyslexie font, but I noticed something when I took a look at it. First, I am very familiar with creating PDF files and how to embed fonts. It appears to me that the Dyslexie font was not embedded, so the font does not show up right in the PDF document. What happens when you embed fonts is that it forces that font to go with the PDF and does not rely on the system fonts that the person has on their computer.

    I don’t know if this makes sense or not, but I would be more than willing to take that Word file of the reading lessons and try to get them in a PDF format so that the Dyslexie font is embedded. This is the site where you can download this font for free: You can see what the font is supposed to look like. There is much more to it than just the font being wider. They are shaped a little different.

    I have a 9 year old son who is a struggling reader and I think suffers from mild Dyslexia. So this would be a blessing to me as well.

    Just let me know if I can help you do this. I would be honored to help!

    In Christ,
