THREE WAYS TO LEARN All Summer Long...

Over the years, I’ve chosen to continue our homeschooling through the summer. It’s often too hot in our area to go outside and play during the
middle of the day, and without some structure and focus, the kids cry “Bored!” and
want to sit in front of a screen all day. When we keep a loose schedule and have some
planned learning activities, all of us seem to enjoy our days a little more.
I do like to veer away from traditional “doing school” in the summer, however. The
kids—and often I as well—need a break from a regular curriculum with textbooks
and tests and assignments. Instead, I like to incorporate activities that can provide
learning opportunities without using a structured program. Here are a few ways
apart from regular schoolwork that can keep your kids learning all summer long. By Leah Courtney
