Summer has finally arrived! It’s time to have some fun, right? We love to enjoy lazy summer days at the beach and all the adventure that warmer temperatures bring with it in the outdoors world.
But if you are like me you don’t want the summer slide to take hold.
I was compensated for sharing these amazing freebies with you.
I loathe having to trudge through months of review in the fall when we resume a full homeschool schedule. Instead, I like to just hit the ground running always moving forward and mastering the next level of learning. Thus we continue homeschooling in the summer. I know! I know! You think I’m a slave driver and I’m stealing their childhood.
But before you throw tomatoes. Let me explain.
Homeschooling in the Summer for us looks a lot different than the regular school year. We slow way down, while still keeping the learning happening just enough to engage their brain. Ha! Lots of online learning and educational fun. That is why I am so excited about these free educational options! I have my eye personally on #6! They are of course all fabulous, but I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while.
