Our Summer Homeschool Morning Time Plans
Homeschool Morning Time
Our summers are usually full of camping trips, family vacations and enjoying as much time outside as possible, as well as daily swim team practice, soccer practices and music lessons. Before we head out the door, we gather together for a few minutes to read from good books.
Summer Homeschool Plans
The books I plan to read aloud this summer include:
We’ll also read a page from the gorgeous Animalium book a couple of times per week.
And I’m hoping to make it through Draw Europe a couple of times before the end of the summer.
Ellie (13) is a voracious reader and will be using her extra time this summer to devour a whole stack of books. But I do give her “assigned” books as well. Titles that she may not pick up on her own, but that I believe she will enjoy and learn from. This summer she will be reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, (happy sigh… it’s one of my all time favorite) The Call of the Wild and Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl.
Ethan (9) is less enthusiastic about reading than his older sister. So I just let him choose pretty much whatever book strikes his fancy (within reason). He’s currently loving The Boxcar Children and the Amulet Series.
With ‘The Littles’, Elijah (4) and Edith (1.5), we just read lots and lots and lots of picture books.
