The Benefits of Journaling, Types of Journals, and Where to Start

Journaling is about the process of writing down words, in order to understand and process them more clearly. These words can include thoughts, feelings, goals, tasks, whatever it may be. Now, journaling may not be for everyone. Some may feel that they clearly understand themselves and have no reason to explore any further. However, many do find that deciding to keep a daily journal has improved their life in several ways. It’s already scientifically proven that writing on paper alone has mental benefits, so let’s take a look at why exactly journaling is good for you, and how you can go about getting started.

Paper in Education – Paper Manipulatives for Reading and Math

Educating children in 2021 looks very different than it has in the past. Hard held beliefs regarding hands-on learning and face-to-face interaction have had to be put aside in the name of health and safety. However, children learn best through multisensory learning, and it is especially the young students and those that struggle in school that are being most harmed by the move away from hands-on learning.
