The official last day of school for our charter school was May 22. We are still running a little behind in our studies. The Camp Fire set our oldest 2 kiddos (ages 10 & 7) back by a good 6 months and we still haven’t quite caught up yet. Our youngest was in Kindergarten this past year and he’ll be ready to start 1st grade in the fall. I’m hoping that powering through this summer will get us all closer to where I’d like us to be by fall. The kiddos are less than thrilled about my summer school plan so I’m probably going to up the ante on incentive charts.
We are continuing in our workbooks Math Lessons for a Living Education, and Evan Moor Daily Spelling Skills. We are about halfway through the math workbooks and almost done with the spelling workbooks.
When we finish the spelling workbook I will get out Handwriting Without Tears cursive workbooks for all three kids. B (age 6) is really too young for cursive writing but he’s been begging to do it… so I figured I better capitalize on his enthusiasm. We’ll see how it goes… We also have these Fun Schooling Thinking Tree Nature Journals to start on.
Besides these workbooks, I’m looking forward to moving into our new house and swimming through the summer heat. I plan on making lots of frozen pops and buying lots of sunscreen. I’m also hoping we can do a little traveling if it’s safe and possible…
