10 Days of Summertime Learning Fun

How do you keep your kids learning throughout the summer, instead of losing half of what they already know? Our brains get lazy when we don’t use them, so we have to fight back with some sneaky summertime learning! Stick around for the next great Homeschool Blogging Network series… I will be sharing with you some ways that I keep the learning fun going all summer long!

Researchers say that many kids lose 2-3 months worth of learning over the summer. We sometimes relax during summer and don’t think much about school.  This summer slide may not happen in homeschools, but just being out of routine can wreak havoc in my home.

But you can sneak a little learning in there during the summer that doesn’t feel like “real” school. In this series, I will share some great links, some great printables, and lots of great tips to make summer learning fun!

    What a great idea! As a school counselor, I understand the importance of children having some sort of practice so their brains don’t completely turn to mush. Sharing!

    Looking forward to your ideas, as a working homeschool mom I like summer to be for them to pick out whatever they want to learn about. Having a list of “back up ideas” in my mind for days off are awesome. Sometimes the “I’m Bored” kicks in.

      I’m that way too. Most of my tips come from things that they have chosen to do on their own, and didn’t realize they were learning! Gotta love sneaky learning!
