Taking a break from homeschooling? ...that doesn't mean the learning has to stop!
It's hard enough to get the kids writing during the school year, but the summer? It is a good time for letter writing, to family and friends. Keeping a journal of family vacations is a good writing activity - turn it into a scrapbook with pictures and memories from the trip.
Here are some other ideas that you might try. I will be adding to this list all summer, so keep checking back.
Your Own Adventure
Create a creature adventure starring you and your friends!
Here's a fun story starter, can you finish the story in 50 words or less?
Have fun making your own stories using Squigly's story builder. Squigly and his friends have written some stories that you can personalize with your own words.
