100 Things Kids Should Be Learning Over Summer Break

100_Things_Kids_Should_Learn

Answer........Nothing. As a former teacher, I remember thinking of all the things kids could be working on and skills they could be practicing while at home during the summer. I have since changed my way of thinking on this topic. Sometimes kids need time to disconnect from school work, just as adults need a break from their careers.

What Do You Do with the Kids in the Summer Time?

  So, the kids are home and are bored. They want to play Skylanders on the Wii or Minecraft on the iPad. That's fine in moderation. It is their summer break, but they can't do that 24-7. With working full time this summer (the first time ever in my life since I was a teacher before), things are a little different in our household. I used to like taking the kids on field trips a few times a week, but that is just not possible now. If you have … [Read more...]

Recently we have been in the yard playing with frogs, but after doing this day after day the kids were ready for something new. We got the WummelBox in the mail and the kids were … [Read more...]
