Summer Learning

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean that you can’t learn anything. This month, the Canadian Homeschool Blogging Team are sharing their ideas to learn through the summer.

Bonnie – Summer Learning Ideas

Summer can mean just as much of a break for homeschooling moms as it does for their kids. We don’t face the same fear as school parents about having our kids home all the time suddenly. Yet just because school is out doesn’t mean that the learning is over. As homeschoolers, we know learning happens all the time, even when there aren’t any books involved. So here are my favourite ways of keeping the learning happening all summer, even when we’ve finished our book work for the year.

Alexandra – Summer Learning

Summer learning has meant different things at different seasons of our homeschool adventure. It was a lot of fun looking back over the last eleven years while I was writing this blog post. In our earlier years, we homeschooled year round and only took a few weeks off during the summer.

Whether you homeschool year round or take a break for the summer, the warmer months can provide many extra learning opportunities for you and your children. Check out these ways you can incorporate learning into your days this summer!

Annette – Summer Students From Away

Tamara – Finding A Summer Rhythm

Think of some fun activities or themes that you could incorporate into the days until school starts. Mondays could be joke day, as an example. Maybe Thursdays could be board game day where you play Snakes and Ladders or Wildcraft or Monopoly after lunch. Pick a day each week to have a picnic at the park, or do a puzzle, or go for a bike ride after dinner. It doesn’t matter what the activity it – the point is that it happens consistently on the same day each week. This gives your child a bit of structure on those long, limitless summer days.
