The Where I Live Journal is an open-ended A3 journal has a cover beautifully illustrated by Oliver Moore and Stephanie Morley. The 'Where I Live' Journal provides ample blank pages to document group observations, photographs, and children's own work. Each child has his/her own set of experiences and individual life story in the community in which they live. The child’s identity as an individual and as a member of a family and wider community is very important. This should be supported by the early educator. The purpose of this journal is to document how you support each child’s engagement with their community and their emergent interests.
