June Learning Fun


No matter if you are a public school family or a homeschool family, you probably want your kiddos to still get in a little bit of learning over the summer, right?

A fun way to do that is stick with themes. For instance, June is National Zoo and Aquarium Month. So why not have them do some fun little things, all about zoos and aquariums?

Here are some great links for June learning fun:

A zoo spelling list over at VocabularySpellingCity – You can use this list to play any of the free learning games they have on the site, but you can also use it to try out any of the premium activities too!

Some animal and nature learning games over at Learning Games for Kids – All of these games are totally free!

An awesome owl unit study that was shared over at Secular Homeschool.

Please chime in, in the comments below, to share some of YOUR June learning fun favorites! 🙂

Sharing Our Successes…

This time of year is always the time when we as parents/teachers/homeschoolers reflect on the school year that we just wrapped up, or will wrap up over the summer. Instead of stewing over what might have gone wrong (we all have those things, don’t feel bad), let’s share and celebrate each other’s successes.

We finished our first year of high school homeschool this year! I was a nervous wreck before we started, and had been worrying about high school for years. As it turned out, it really went just as smoothly as every other year. There were some initial struggles with how much time we spent on school (prior years we were more relaxed and took a more interest led approach), but when my son talked to other kids who were in high school in public school, and was told about just how much time they spent doing homework AFTER school…well, those struggles were quickly overcome.

Now, let’s hear from you! After you’ve shared in the comments below, take a look at some of these incredible homeschool success stories:
