I used Grammarly (www.grammarly.com) to grammar check this post, because I am not a grammar ninja.

summer school

I don’t know about you, but my kids just don’t seem to know how to function without some kind of structure in their day. We finished school for the year about three weeks ago. The kids seemed a little lost. They just didn’t seem to know what to do without it! I find Big Sis reading to Little Sis. I find Little Sis doing her busy bags. Big Brother quizzes me on math facts. If I don’t organize school, they will!

They’ve had a three week break. We did VBS last week at our church in Atlanta. We will have our church’s first VBS ever at the end of July. Between now and then, I am going to have a loose school schedule. Of course, trips to the lake and pool trump school during the summer.

Here’s a sampling of the things we will do for school during the summer:

1. Read Swiss Family Robinson

2. Big Brother made a goal of reading 100 books this summer. He is using THIS BOOK LOG to record the books.

3. I grabbed THIS WORKBOOK from Sam’s for Big Brother. He will use it for reading comprehension and math review

4. Read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe… and possibly do a lapbook

5. Theater Workshop (taught by super dad… his idea) to learn how to write, direct, rehearse, and star in a play

6. Classes at our local children’s museum

7. Worksheets like THIS and THIS for Big Sis to review her math

8. Big Sis will complete her Bible notebook from My Father’s World First Grade (the only thing we didn’t finish during the year)

9. Make a list of things to learn about from “How it’s Made” while we still have a free trial to Netflix

10. Hands on review games like THIS and THIS and THIS to make learning fun and functional

What are you doing to keep learning happening this summer?

    Sounds like a plan! We do school during the Summer, but it’s more laid back and mainly to keep facts fresh and days structured. I need a written action plan like this, thanks for sharing your ideas.
