Anybody else planning a lightly academic "themed" summer?
For my 5 year old DS (he turned 5 in May), we're planning a "Learn to Read and Write Summer"; for my 7th grade daughter, we're planning a "Review Pre-Algebra Summer", before moving into Algebra 1 this fall.
It'll only take about an hour each day, hopefully 7 days a week. It'll take a load off my shoulders if I can get my 5 year old a bit more fluent in blending and sight word recognition before this fall. I'm excited - I love our phonics program and writing/spelling program, and my DD's pre-algebra program is great and perfect for just "review".
I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol). Aimee
