I am thinking of ways to bridge the learning gap of the summer by finding creative ways to make learning fun. I have plans to visit local museums and other educational "field trips" to keep learning through the summer exciting. I also am thinking about trying an online program, Time4Learning.com, that feels more like playing games than doing school work. I found a coupon code for a free trial to see if they like it. What are your summer bridge plans? Any fun, exciting ideas?
(the coupon code is SUMMER14 if anyone is interested)
Just curious, what is the nature of your "summer learning gap?" I ask because while our home-based learning changes style and energy naturally throughout the seasons, we don't have what I'd describe as a gap.
For us, summer learning tends to move more into literature-based learning, music and art, natural sciences and outdoors skills. But we've also had big jags of physical sciences, maths, second language and computer programming depending on the kid and depending on the summer. Do you tend to administer a fair bit of curriculum up to a certain point in the year and then stop? If so, maybe summer would be a good time for child-led project-based work.
