DOES LEARNING STOP?
Nope, this summer we will be taking it easy. Our break starts June 5th through July 14th. During that time the kids will be having fun.
PRE - SUMMER subjects are from April 1st - June 5th is when or core curriculum is done but we learn in a different and fun way.
Some of the items I’m looking to keep them using during the SPRING before Summer is:
Youth Digital (MOD Design)
The Focus is MATH and ELECTIVES
GOAL TIME: 1.5 hour tops from Mon-Thu
EXPLORING MORE THIS SUMMER!
Camps are a major plus for my family. When they were in traditional school they couldn’t wait to do Sleep Away camps and Day Camps. They didn’t want curriculum or typical learning camps they wanted FUN! FRIENDS! And ADVENTURE!
There are several Christian based sleep away camps we are trying out this year.
River Valley Ranch
Also, they will be going to a fun-filled Day Camp at a local Private School
Circus Camp (yes, my son went for SPRING CAMP but they have a 2 week SUMMER CAMP)
WHY SEND YOUR KIDS TO CAMPS?
One aspect about Traditional School my kids loved was experiencing seeing and meeting other kids all day. The problem with the schools they went to were the kids rarely got to interact with the exception of 25 minutes during lunch.
The major friendships were gained with consistent after
-Before/After Care Camps
- Summer Camps
- Play dates
So by sending your kids to fun camps, you are taking the best part of the traditional school experience and giving them a chance to ‘socialize’ and explore.
