Pilgrim's Progress Notebook

Pilgrim's Progress is a wonderful read aloud which suits a broad range of ages. I read it to 4 of my children aged 7 to 17 years of age over a number of months and my 15 year old decided he'd do a pictorial narration. These are some of the notebook pages he did. It got out of order in the way I scanned it but it gives an idea of what he did.

Really nice work. My 13 year old tries to get out of drawing and writing as he feels he has "got it down."

This is just lovely.

Wow! Your son did a great job on those notebook pages! My husband, myself, and our 16yo read this book together as a read aloud about three years ago.

That is a really nice account of the Pilgrims Progress. A great idea that I'd love to do with my kids sometime. Thank you for sharing Carol

I like his notebook pages, but I'm a big fan of pages like this.

I love literature studies and his note pages are just fantastic. He's so neat! (I can not imagine my son EVER being that neat!)

Carol said...

He's always been very neat with his writing...pity I can't say the same about his room, although he does share it with two brothers. He doesn't like drawing so I was surprised that he chose to do a pictorial type narration.

How Gorgeous!

This is fantastic!! When my next set goes through PP (my 3rd graders are finishing it up now), we'll definitely be doing this.

First time visitor; popping in from Keeping Company. Very lovely and inspirational! I agree with Celeste: I still have a few that will be reading this in the future! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Jenny - for your kind words & taking the time to comment.

My first two did made a scroll of sorts with drawings...I love the detail and the color your son did! You can really see that you had them do their work carefully. I need to S L O W down with my children and have them take the time to do good work. :) Thanks for sharing.

I have a real mix of neaties and slobs! One or two really baulked at drawing narrations - just a lack of confidence I think but they got better as they went along.

I just love this! I am finishing up PP with my oldest now, the artist, and wish we would have thought to do something so memorable. Fantastic idea and beautiful work - definitely worth the Keeping!

Carol said...

Thanks Kristyn. Just last night my ds who did this was showing a friend some of the notebooks he kept which included the one above. He turns 18 tomorrow and is an apprenticed plumber but he still gets pleasure looking back at his own Keeping efforts.

Very nice. Great idea.

So neat to see your 15 year old illustration :) I'm just getting started on the Pilgrim's Progress with my two boys, 6 and 8. :) Browsing blogs to see what neat ideas we might be able to try. Thanks for sharing!

You're welcome, Ashley. Enjoy the book with your boys.
