Relaxed Summer Learning

Relaxed Summer Learning - Writing Adventure!


                          

                  
Take a Break with Purpose!


I don't know about you but when summer comes I am ready for a break. BUT you may not want your kids sitting in front of electronics all the time or forget what they've learned throughout the school year.

Try a summer writing adventure that uses hands on activities like role playing being a spy during the Revolutionary War or pretending to be a soldier then writing about the adventure in a relaxed manner. Take the kids to a reenactment for a visual to stimulate ideas for stories!

Or an ocean adventure by becoming ocean animals and creating an under-the-sea community like the movie Finding Nemo. Write about the Shark Brigade that saves Shell City from the Electric Eels or perhaps the crab cup-cake baker who wants to win the Barnacle Bake-off.


The Old Schoolhouse says, "I used this book with my nine-year-old daughter, Mercie. She has always loved to write stories, but her stories lack organization and structure. She eagerly began with “Ocean Adventures”, and as the cover says, she really dove in! I look forward to using more of these books!"

Look through our Bookstore for Specials and more exciting writing adventures.

Recyle for the Summer











      Summer Fun!

Teaching kids recycling responsibility doesn't have to be hard. Try a making a fun hands on craft to get their creativity flowing to Up-cycle.

I don't know about you but busy moms and teachers sometimes use drive up conveniences! I find myself at Starbucks or McDonald's way too much. But I decided to save those straws and do a project with my friend's children!

Gather Materials:

Straws
Glue
Shoe box lid
Scrap Booking Paper
1 Marble



Measure and cut the paper to fit inside the shoe box lid. Glue it down.





                             
Cut the straws into 2-3 inch pieces.






Glue two straw pieces in the middle on the top like photo. This will be the start place for the marble.








Make pathways for the marble to travel by placing more straws as a puzzle. Make some of them a dead end.










Drop the marble in the top and rotate the lid trying to get the marble to the goal at the bottom.

This teaches kids to be creative thinkers about turning recyable waste into something usable.
