Are you looking at learning Spanish? Searching for a fun way to add organic learning opportunities? Or perhaps you have a new Spanish friend and you want to explore each others cultures! Enter in My Friendship Journal. This is a bilingual guided journal, a simple way to increase your Spanish vocabulary.
Notebook Doodles My Friendship Journal/Mi Diario de Amistad: A Bilingual Guided Journal is a 128-page hardcover journal. It’s part of the Notebook Doodles series put together by Jess Volinski.
From the Cover: Intentionally designed to build self-esteem in young girls, Notebook Doodles (R) Mi Diario de Amistad (My Friendship Journal) is a bilingual guided journal filled with fun activities and inspiring prompts. Each charming, middle-school-friendly activity features directions and questions in both English and Spanish, from completing sentence prompts, creating secret codes, and reflecting on what kids like best about their friends, to describing memories, designing fashion, and associating pictures with their personalities.
I love the bright colours found throughout. You’ll find every colour of the rainbow contained within the pages of this hardcover journal. Flowers, banners, lined pages, and assortment of graphics.
I love the options for journaling. This is no ordinary journal filled with lines upon lines to fill. Yes! There are lines to fill, after all a journal must be written in right? But the graphics add a fun touch don’t you think?
See the beauty in the banners? See how easy it would be to practice your Spanish or English? Or the joy of sharing thoughts with a good friend?
Quiet Fox Designs are the publishers of this lovely tome. I am reviewing for Fox Chapel Publishing. A pretty book that will build confidence in each journalist. Helping them to dig deep into thoughts and memories. I can well imagine the laughter that would come for 8-9 year olds completing it.
Should You Get My Friendship Journal?
I like this journal. The graphics are appealing, the font easy to read, and the prompts are appealing. Primarily, I see My Friendship Journal as a girl’s journal. Predominately for use between two girls, but with room to include others as well.
I love the mix of English and Spanish. I could easily see someone using this journal simply to either practice their new skills in either language. For many of the pages, it wouldn’t be hard to cover up the one you know. Teachers might find it helpful to use some of the prompts in their ESL or Spanish classes.
