Yes, it seems Mommy needs summer break as much as the kids!
All that being said......I have made the decision to school very, very lightly this year. In summers past we have worked almost straight through.....trying to finish up or get a head start on the next year. This year we are going to focus only on the things they need to keep fresh on. The 8 yr will keep up her math and reading and Spanish. The 6 yr will keep up her reading and math and Spanish. And I am going to work with the 5 yr on her handwriting and beginning reading skills.
The maybe we can do some fun stuff! I want to plant herbs in pots. It may be too late.....but, if not....surely that is a unit study right there! My 8 yr has been begging me to find her some sewing projects and work with her on them. Sounds like school to me;) And...last but not least.....I think we are going to invest in some bowling shoes and free bowl all summer! Hmmm.....physical education?
Then, there are all the "Mommy" projects staring at me from dusty corners. Maybe I will get to a few of those.....finally!
But.....absolutely NO lesson plans! Just a couple of books and a general plan!
Praying we all have a fun, restful summer!
