It’s the last day of school for us, which brings us relief and freedom from the shackles of “required learning,” materials we need to cover to satisfy the school requirements. But what to do with the two-three months ahead?
Usually we have a somewhat relaxed homeschool during the summer, continued learning, but at a much easier pace, with a lot more outdoor activities and playtime thrown in. I don’t want them to go completely cold turkey on schoolwork because that would make August that much harder.
At the same time we could all use a break, so this year, I’ve asked the kids to come up with a few summer goals of their own — what they would like to accomplish schoolwise and otherwise?
