    Summer is coming. Any idea of academic activity at home beside camps?

    Have you checked out some of the other forums?

    Homeschool Families would be a great board to ask that question on.
    Another great forum to ask this question on is your own personal state. Go to Families from each State and find your state. Ask what is going on in your state or even your personal area.

    Good luck in finding some great ideas.

    Kids will lose approximately 2.6 months of grade level equivalency if they don't engage in educational activities during summer. Read with a pencil, do something with a book 15-20 minutes a day will do it.

    We use Time4Learning year-round. We also visit the library and go to the beach or the water park with our homeschool group. And we attend a couple of VBS (Vacation Bible School). A lot of our churches do these. They're free and they're lots of fun for the kids. Usually from 9am to noon.

    One resource is a series of K-4 summer review booklets. Each grade-level booklet offers a great way for parents to provide summer daily review for reading, language, and math. It has a simple format, with one page for language arts, one page for math per day for eight weeks. Kindergarten has six weeks. It’s available on Amazon.
