Summer Plans 2013
I'm not going to go into detail about everything, but here are a few benefits you may want to consider.
1. Less pressure
2. Consistent scheduliing
3. More freedom during the school-year
4. Opportunity to explore own interestes
5. Time to Cover missed sections of curriculum
6. Ability to work on difficult areas
I'm sure there are more, but because I have made sure we have weekly learning happening from the time the girls were very young, this is just part of their life and they expect it.
Our summer plans are much less structured. I do continue daily math and language arts since I want those skills to stay with them during the summer break. For our summer studies here is what the girls will be doing:
All About Spelling
Prima Latin - she's so excited to learn Latin!
Multiplication with Math Mammoth
Starting 3rd grade Math from
We'll be continuing with 1 lesson a week, but not always do this every week and also be continuing with 2-3 dictation passages a week. Rose is so excited to learn Latin and move on to multiplication! We may do some in her 3rd grade math book simply because she wants to start. We're currently reading about Helen Keller for a product review and she's thrilled with it.
All About Spelling
Time with Math Mamoth
Continuing with 1st grade math, speed drills
Beth loves math so that won't be a problem with her. She also loves to read, but typically still defers to picture books. I'm hoping to engage her with higher level reading.
Heart of Dakota: Little Hands to Heaven
Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons
Grace is the only one of my girls continuing with our Heart of Dakota Curriculum. I'm planning to finish up this curriculum with her over the summer, but also go through it again starting in the fall. I also will be starting to teach her to read. She's so eager to begin!
