Summer Term

Learnin’ needn’t cease entirely simply because of the tilt & rotation of the earth ’round the sun. I find it easier to keep some educational momentum going with our homeschool studies by following an abbreviated schedule during summer months: Heavy reading, light math, loads of field trips and hands-on backyard science projects, regular library trips, sneaky writing (pen-pal correspondence, thank-you notes, & journaling), and plenty of fresh air & rigorous activity in nature…
