How do I know summer is here?
1. The school day is becoming very laid back. These are our only requirements
- Practice piano
- Study Bible verses
- Swim or play games
- Go outside
2. Daily schedule? See #1
3. Even Library trips are "different"
Sometimes we will do the summer reading program at our public library. Often we have our own summer program. This is the one I'm going to use this year. If you would like to use it too just click on the graphic to get the free printable!
Each week before we go to the library I am going to give this "assignment" sheet to my kids. When we are there they pick out books from each of the categories.
If they skip a category? Well I think that's ok.
If they get obsessed with one topic? Like Beethoven, Rome or bacteria?
Well I think that's ok too.
Really it is that simple
It gives kids some loose guidance during the freedom of summer to keep learning & growing.
What fun ways will you challenge your kids to keep learning through the summer?
