For the few short years we’ve been homeschooling, I NEVER would have thought I’d be summer-schooling. The joy and beauty of schooling at home is that every moment is a learning moment – it doesn’t matter what we’re doing, there are always teachable moments and opportunities.
However, I do really appreciate the idea of a little formal schooling through the summer. I’ve always noticed, when we take breaks throughout the year that are longer than a week or so, that we lose focus quickly, and it’s a LOT of work to get back on track.
So this year, pregnant and all, I decided to take the plunge and try out our own form of “summer school”. I’m sharing our summer school ideas and how we make it work for us over at Homemakers Challenge today!
