I can't believe May is winding down already. We are slowly fizzling out of all of our activities and I am so ready for our summer schedule.
We do homeschooling in the summer just not as extensive. More unit studies, lapbooks, and library visits. We keep up on important subjects such as: Math, Writing, Reading, Language, etc. Will we homeschool every single day? No. Probably will do the 3 day a week thing with occasional field trips, etc.
I am also trying to incorporate summer fun into the mix with waterpark ideas, a possible trip to Cedar Point, the beach, etc. Gotta be traditional when it comes to "Summer Vacation." Haha!
On top of summer homeschool planning, I am slowly starting to plan out our next year. I may be changing gears from curriculum. The past two years I have done A Beka. I love the curriculum, but it doesn't feel flexible enough for me to actually feel like we are homeschoolers. Since I am a teacher trying to break away from rigid routines, I feel it's best to steer away for the time being. I will; however, will be sticking with A Beka Math! Love it!
I am planning on some sort of literary curriculum as the girls love reading and actually go through books from the library as if they were water. I am trying to weigh my options along with comparing their interests, etc. I am thankfully becoming more confident in our homeschooling adventures and ready to spread my wings a little bit more in some areas.
What are your plans for homeschooling in the summer? Do you actually take the whole summer off or do you do some sort of summer enrichment to keep those brains sharp?
Sorry so short and sweet today. I'm a little behind on some work (life a mom, haha). Have a blessed day!
