I think I figured summer out!!!!
May 14, 2013 at 8:29 AM
We decided to use FIAR this summer :-) The kids will be 5 and 6 soon and I want them to have a light summer, especially with my hip replacement in July. DS will continue to read, read, read and to review math facts 1-10 (addition and subtraction) and DD will stick with Phonics Museum and both will do Song School Latin (they LOVE it). I will lay out several weeks for my parents, probably 4, and I think it will work :-)

    Yay! I love it when a plan clicks into place; it takes away so much worry and work.

    Five in a Row. Its literature based unit studies that cover science, social studies, geography, art, and a bit of math and language arts. I bought the bible supplement, so we will cover bible, too :-)

    My kids loved FIAR when they were younger. I think that is an excellent summer choice. Keeps them reading and doing some fun activities through the summer. I can't remember the sites anymore, but there are some great resources to go along with FIAR, for free, online. A lot of Lapbooking ideas, printables, etc.
