I mean, it has to be fun, right? It has fun in the name!
Yep, my kids still gave me a blank stare when I told them what we would be doing this summer. I'm sure if I had said we were spending the summer playing the wii and swimming there would have been cheers of joy through out the land.
But it actually is a lot of fun.
We'll be doing our usual Horizons math, but I have a couple of summer ideas.
First, we're starting on chapter books. We read the book then follow with the movie. So far, we've finished the three Narnia's and Mr. Popper's Penguins. We just started reading Peter Pan. Other titles on my list include Treasure Island, Charlotte's Web, Because of Winn Dixie, Indian in the Cupboard and Wizard of Oz. If you have any other suggestions of books with movies, let me know. These are the titles available at out public library.
Our other project will continue into the school year. We're going to finish our Road Trip USA from Confessions of a Homeschooler. It covers all 50 states with fun facts about each state. It also incorporates US history as you go. We started this last year, but it dropped to the wayside. I think I was just too busy. We really loved doing this. The boys favorite part was making a recipe from each state. We also have our postcards from this past year's postcard exchange. I can't wait to start it.
See..... I told you it was Summer Fun!
