I’ve learned that by continuing my children’s education through the long days of summer they actually retain more of what they’ve learned throughout the homeschool year. That’s why even as my children became tweens I still found ways to make middle school summer learning fun so that they would want to continue homeschooling in the summer.
To be honest, I’ve loved homeschooling through the summertime since we first became year round homeschoolers. There are so many possibilities for learning outside while enjoying the sunshine!
As our children get older it can be more challenging to engage them in summer learning. They long for the freedom to sleep in, listen to music and just do their own thing. However, I believe it is important we still provide them with ways to continue learning in a less structured manner during the summertime.
Our middle school summer learning often includes hikes, movie nights, science experiments, afternoon game marathons and quiet time reading quality literature. Homeschooling in the summer should include as many enjoyable activities as possible that can be included as part of your child’s education.
It is essential that your tweens see summertime homeschooling as a fun activity. They’ve reached a time in their lives that they want the freedom to choose things that they would like to do.
Try spending an afternoon chatting with your tweens and ask what they would enjoy doing over the summer. Then take that information and discover ways that you can incorporate those things into your middle school summer learning.
I created a Middle School Summer Learning Collection that will allow your tweens to have a bit of freedom like they’d like and still spend time learning over the summer. It is full of fun and educational activities that they will enjoy!
