If your kids don’t get out of school this week, they will probably be getting out soon and then what? What’s the plan for the summer?
This has been one of the worst years for our family, and I am so excited for the kids to be out school. No more homework, no more pressure. Can’t wait!!
We are going to swim, swim, swim every day and travel a bunch. We are coming home to Georgia for part of the summer and have beach time with both sides of the family. We are planning to drive across the country and are currently picking our stops along the route. We’ve hit nine national parks so far this year and we want to hit a bunch more before our $80 national park pass has to be renewed. (Best bargain ever!)
Academically, I want them to practice typing this summer and get faster. Fifteen minutes a day of keyboarding will make a huge difference in their speed. I think if they create a private blog about the trip that would help their typing and writing skills but they wouldn’t even know it. Plus they could be creative with their photos and memories of our trips.
I also plan to do quickie multiplication quizzes just to keep them thinking and of course plenty of trips to the library.
What is your plan for the summer? Are you excited they are out or it doesn’t really make a difference to you?
