As year round homeschoolers we do continue to homeschool throughout the summer months. However, our homeschool days do not look the same as they do during the other 9 months of the year. Typically by the time summer comes around my children have already completed their Math and English curriculum for the year. This allows us the opportunity to have more relaxed days while continuing to enjoy homeschooling.
This summer my daughter is wrapping up her first year of middle school. She’s enjoyed learning about Princesses, written a short story, completed over 75 writing prompts, began taking online piano lessons and entered her first poetry contest so far this year.
We’re using this summer as a time to test out changes to our homeschool before beginning a new year in the fall. However, we’re also excited to start using a few new resources from our favorite homeschool sale of the year.
Each year when the Build Your Bundle sale comes around, my children are excited to look through ALL of the resources included. This means that we spend hours looking over 200 products before making any decisions as to what we’ll be using as part of our child led homeschooling.
My daughter was thrilled to discover that there was a 100 Quick Easy Writing Prompts for Teens resource since she is wrapping up the writing prompt resource we purchased from last year’s Build Your Bundle Sale.
She tends to be an early riser and often makes breakfast for everyone before we’ve crawled out of bed. So, she will greatly enjoy the 50+ new breakfast ideas included in The Healthy Breakfast Book.
There are times in our homeschool day that I am working with my son and I don’t want my daughter to get distracted from learning. I’ve discovered that this a great time to utilize audiobooks in our homeschool day. Growing up I loved watching the movie, Pollyanna, it happens to be available as an audiobook in the Brother/Sister Bundle this year. I was quick to grab this amazing resource from the Build Your Bundle Sale because I know that my daughter will fall in love with the story just as I did when I was her age.
My daughter loves animals and greatly enjoys writing in any capacity. She was excited to discover A Walk in the Woods – Cursive Copywork resource. There are more than 50 pages of copywork and art pages inside to keep my daughter busy all summer long.
Summer homeschooling is just around the corner for us and my daughter can’t wait to delve into these fun resources that we were able to purchase as part of our child led homeschooling. The Build Your Bundle Sale is one of my favorite frugal homeschooling resources and it is such a blessing to be able to find amazing, new homeschooling resources each year!
What are you using for your summertime homeschooling from the Build Your Bundle Sale?
