Summer is a great time for learning like what I've pictured above: outdoors, field trips, hands on, travel, adventure, exploring. Summer is also a great time for building, gardening, preserving and cooking food, and taking part in community through the many (often free) events, festivals, and camps to be found this time of year.
But we school year round. So, although we have been on break from the books since early June, we are about to go back to them! Summer can be a good time for books, too.
