Unlike some homeschooling families, we LAY OFF the books during the summertime. My son wants a rest. Mom/teacher/employee/wife/chef/chauffeur NEEDS a break. We slip in one day per month of review time, but other than summer reading, we are on VACAY.
My son is loving the Chronicles of Narnia this summer. I am starting from the first book in the series, The Magician's Nephew, and reading through as much as we can. He begs me to read more chapters each day.
My son has created other opportunities for entertainment and learning.
How about the world's tallest Popsicle-stick candle holder? I promise you the Popsicle sticks and hot glue gun have provided hours of entertainment. He picked up on this trick from his cousin and has gone a little hog wild in his room.
Have a happy summer.
