Because I want my sons to succeed in 4th grade I've decided summer isn't going to be just about fun but needs to be about learning too. Basically this summer I am incorporating a bunch of things into the boys' day that have to do with learning and health.
1) Read Chapter books daily
2) Complete Reading Composition sheets
3) Play math games or do math sheets (in particular, multiplication and money)
4) Ride their bikes
5) Walk (outside or using a walk video - which they love!! Leslie Sansome's walking videos)
6) 3 sets of situps (they're up to 30 each set)
So far John and Jarrod have enjoyed everything with absolutely no complaints. Even when I've limited their day to 1 movie a day. I need to add a craft or art, or some history learning in their too. Just wanted to record what we've done the summer of 2007
