Summer is HERE and today we’re going to talk about summer learning resources. I will be the first to tell you that I love a long summer break. It gives me time to clean up all the papers and books from the previous homeschool year and do some research into the next year too. This is the time of year I’m usually texting homeschool friends asking what curriculum they’ve loved as well!

My Thoughts on Summer Learning
I love summer and I love the change of seasons. And frankly, I don’t want summer to feel super structured like the rest of the year does when we have to get up for school and other activities. I want to allow my kids to sleep in and play outside and only come in for meals. But I know when things get too loose, everyone gets a little lost. They’re not quite sure what to do next so they default to asking for movies or games.

What we need is:
- a weekly routine that includes a little bit of everything: a trip to the pool or the lake, a trip to the library for new books, an art project, lots of reading time, and quiet time too.
- a daily routine: chores, meals at certain times, a little learning like reading or a math page, lots of outside time and exercise.

Free Summer Learning Resources from Homeschool Buyer’s Club
I think we all love paging through new curriculum before we actually buy it. It can be really expensive trying to “trial-and-error” new curriculum. Summertime is a great time to check out new stuff but it can be hard to do without a big cost up front.
Homeschool Buyer’s Club has made it really easy to check out an array of curriculum for FREE before you buy. Free pdfs, free trials, free summer learning resources from some of our favorite homeschool curriculum companies–yes please!
An additional bonus: as you try out these new-to-you resources, your child will also be learning this summer. Yay!
What I’m Excited to Try:
Homeschool Buyer’s Club is offering a TON of resources, but here are just a few that I am excited to try.
The Mystery of History Volume II Cookbook (FREE): You know how much we love history in our house. We have used Mystery of History in the past, but just for one year and I am super excited to try out this free resource and see if we’d like to use it again.
HomeschoolPiano (Free Trial): My girls take piano all school year, but summertime is much more relaxed. We still do some regular lessons, but this is a great way to keep them engaged and learning. If you want your kids to take lessons, this is a great way to get the whole family learning piano.
Math Mammoth (FREE downloads): This can be used as either a supplement or a full math curriculum. I’m looking at it for a low-key summer math. They’re offering math worksheets for free!
History Alive (FREE trial): This is a program that offers a new monthly lesson with all the resources you’ll need to teach history, science, and geography without the guess work or planning. Yay!
