Well, you have probably made the decision as to whether to continue educating your 6th grader through the summer by now. If not, don’t worry. It is not to late to make plans for the summer.
As I mentioned before, we will school through the summer. Because we go all year long, we can make some adjustments in the schedule to allow for time at the beach, or swimming, or time with friends who are not home schooled.
Some parents do what you could call “school lite” over the summer. It is enough school work to keep their child’s brain functioning but not so much school that the child misses out on the days of summer and the fun that those days can provide.
We use Time4Learning as our core curriculum, supplementing where we want to or need to. Because it is our core curriculum, we use it all year long. However, if your need something to keep your child’s brain nimble, consider Time4Learning as bridge work, or review over the summer.
Your child will probably enjoy it, and will learn even if they don’t think they are learning. The work is fun, and interesting. Time4Learning is easy to use, low cost, and based on national standards. Consider it for your summer work, or as your core curriculum. Oh, and did I mention that the record keeping is a great perk!
