The Word Collector - Journal

Is your child ready to become The Word Collector!?

Let your child be proud to proclaim - 'I AM THE WORD COLLECTOR'

You need to be familiar with the book 'The Word Collector' by Peter H. Reynolds.

Here's a brief summary of 'The Word Collector'.

Jerome is a young boy who absolutely adores words. He writes them down on paper, cuts them out and pastes them in his scrapbooks. One day, Jerome's books fall and all the words get scattered. It's then that Jerome discovers that the words can be joined to flow like poetry. Jerome decides to share his special words with the world.

Did you know you can now have your own journal to collect your own special words just like Jerome!?

The Word Collector - by Peter H. Reynolds

The Word Collector book. What Children Really Want. Notebook journal.

This 130-page journal has been specially designed for children who have a wonderful, natural attraction to words. This Word Collector Journal book will supply you with lots of ideas for activities.

An example of Word Collector activities that you could do:

  • Get yellow coloured card just like Jerome, the Word Collector. Write your favourite words down on it - then explain to someone why they are your favourite words! Go on to challenge yourself by finding out what your favourite words are called in another language. Write them down on the other side of the card and learn them!

  • Look around the room you are in. Find at least 5 objects, write them down along with exciting adjectives or sentences to describe elements about them. See how creative, witty or inventive you can get with your words. Example. Lamp - illumination vessel. Plant - lush green, organic matter. Armchair - padded, velvety upholstery. Magazine - colourfully, structured paper material. Mobile phone - Petite communication device.

Words are powerful. They allow us to communicate with one another. They educate us. They help us empower us. Always choose your words carefully.
