We are finding this journal a good tool to keep us on task with reading through the textbook and different assignments. With multiple options, it gives us a variety of ways to apply what is being learned.
I like having all the activities to choose from when we work through a chapter. But it is a little hard to know WHEN to use the activity. I thought it would have more of a plan but I guess that is left up to the teacher. We read from the book and then do an activity and then read more. But we may try reading the whole chapter first and then using the activities for review.
I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm just starting with Apologia. But what an awesome surprise to see these when I got them. They were bigger, with more "things" inside for the activities and journaling and learning then I ever expected. I really thought they would be much simpler then they ended up being. I would definitely buy them again & recommend buying them if you use any Apologia.
