Here at The Joys of Home Educating we home educate year round, never really taking long breaks. Which works great for US. This Summer I decided to try something different. I posted the other day about taking Friday's off in the Summer (June - Sept) with only reading and our Summer Bowling Program on the schedule for Fridays. I love that this leaves room for playdates, camping etc....
Today I made up a subject schedule for Molly and Zachary to follow. Typically we cover 3 - 4 subjects per day. Summer months - only 1 subject plus reading (that is necessary in our home every day!) Kids are so happy. I even gave them an IPAD Schedule and incorporated that into their subjects. Here is what our Summer will look like:
Monday - Social Studies
(June's topic is US Presidents)
Tuesday - Writing
Wednesday - Math
Thursday - Science
Almost every day we are able to get outside for some Phys Ed plus our bowling helps with that! Some days I will throw in a Scholastic Newsletter or something "fun" to do. Crafts (for the girls) almost every day. Molly is still writing her books - on book 3 now! GO MOLLY! LEGOS almost every day for us all! Then playdates, camping and exploring! Going to Crayola Factory this month! Camping - Father's Day Weekend and of course, the Bronx Zoo (one of our favorite places!)
Hung up our C-Span American Presidents Timeline. This is a HUGE
hit with the kids and the adults. We are learning so much!
THIS WAS FREE over at C-Span Classroom - they have so many
Summer Safety - Scholastic!
Don't bother me MOM! LOL
What type of schedule do you keep in the Summer Months for schooling?
