In the past we’ve schooled year round, but the last few summers I needed a break. I decided we’d do school lite instead of going on a complete hiatus. My boys were required to continue their math lessons and, of course, to keep reading. This kept their brains going and eliminated any need for review at the beginning of the school year.
Summer break is a great time to boost math skills and to cement concepts that weren’t sticking very well during the school year.
