Homeschool Summer School

Unless you homeschool year round, summer is time for fun and relaxation. We used to homeschool year round, but during the summer we were very laid back and took things much slower. How do you handle the summer months?

Some kids need a little extra practice during the summer months just to stay sharp. Some kids need remedial help during the summer. Online summer school is one answer. Kids can work at their own pace on specific areas of need. If your child just needs help in one area, say online tutoring in writing, then just have them work on that one area so that they don’t view themselves as being punished over the summer.

Keep summer learning relaxed and loose. You will be surprised at how much your kids pick up and retain.
