Play To (and With!) Your Kids' Strengths

As a special educator for 17 years, I loved creating accessible materials for my students. I decided to create Genius Journals for children to elevate their voices through writing. By identifying your child's multiple intelligences, children are able to build self-esteem because they are aware of their strengths. I have seen writing be a stumbling block for children in schools. They are challenged by narrowing down topics to write about. They become uncertain about what to share and have a tendency to get blocked when it comes to writing.

When children write what they are passionate about they build their self-esteem and self-love. Children then learn to self-advocate about their learning style and learning needs. This experience encourages positive feelings to pour into other areas of their lives.

The perfect alternative to technology

Amazon Review

I bought this journal for my 10-year-old dtr. She loves to read and enjoys interactive books (mad libs and journals with prompts) and with a few road trips this Summer I knew this would soon become a favorite of hers. The Genius Journal (STEM edition) offers plenty of space for creation and thought, well needed during Summer vacation. My dtr has been keeping her genius journal next to her ‘space-themed’ pencil case allowing for activities whenever she wants!

Excited for more Genius Journals, we’ll certainly be buying for presents!
