Relaxed Summer Learning

New Millennium Girl Books for girls



Relaxed Summer Learning 

 
Ask my kids and 
they’ll tell you we didn't  homeschool in the summer. But actually, they did! I snuck in my “we are going to be explorers all summer” speech. I gave them binoculars, a notebook, and a magnifying glass. I beefed it up with all kinds of explorer talk and even cook up a few fun snacks that they could take with them in their back packs.

Each day they pretended to visit another place-California, China or the moon! I encouraged them to build tents, count ants, and listen for birds and record their findings like real explorers. They can take pictures or draw pictures in notebooks.

New Millennium Girl Books for girlsOf course I had my younger children count the bugs and rocks they collect on their expeditions and the older ones get to use fractions in our cooking time. But as experts tell us, self discovery learning sticks with kids for a longer time so I encouraged them to find out for themselves why crickets sing and lightning bugs light up.

It won't take long for them to beg to go to the library to find out! We all feel more relaxed and happy without the push, push, push of the regular school year and I know my kids are satisfying their curiosity and learning at the same time. Exploring nature keeps them learning without them even knowing it!

I love summer learning. It truly is when I let my "hair down" and embrace natural learning and curiosity in my boys. They too beg me to take them to the library and we love finding different topics or skills to explore. I love summer!!!

Bekki, My daughter's favorite was when we collected a reptile and amphibian zoo! We made a frog habitat out of a big box and fed them hamburger on a string and fireflies all summer then released them back into the wild. You can imagine our surprise when the green garter snake, Charlie, had 27 live babies one morning! Needless to say, we changed her name to Charlotte! It was a great relaxed learning summer!
