Summer plans!

We took the month of June off for the most part, just doing a bit of school here and there. I had not intended to take the time off, but we all needed it! We will be starting back up a light schedule next week and keeping with that until early-mid August.

So even though it's already July, here is our summer plans!

Math: Beast Academy 3b for Monkey. Singapore Essentials A for Bear

Science: Finishing up the Bubbleology lapbook from that we started in May but stopped due to weather and then our break.

Charles Darwin and Evolution study from Build Your Library. The kids are loving this one! We also started this one before our break and I'm excited to get back to it.

Read alouds: 
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle - We finished this a couple weeks ago.
The Witches by Roald Dahl - current read aloud
The Caputre by Kathryn Lasky - current audio book in the car
Next up: The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

We're also reading:
The Belief Book by David Mcafee
The Lion Storyteller Bedtime book
Uncle Wiggily's Story Book
Usborne See Inside The Human Body

LA: Monkey does an occasional lesson from AAS, but mostly is just reading right now.
Bear is doing phonics with OPGTR

They each also have a folder of work. Bear usually works through hers with me, though sometimes Monkey reads her instructions to her. Monkey does hers independently, usually in the car when we're not listening to an audiobook or while I am working with Bear.

In Bear's folder:
Singapore Essentials A
Developing the Early Learner
Mind Benders
Ready, Set, Go for the Code

In Monkey's folder:
Singapore Challenging Word Problems 3
Mind Benders
Zaner Bloser handwriting
Analogies for Beginners
Evan Moor The 7 Continents: Asia

Meanwhile I am getting things finalized for when we roll over to "next year" from summer work.  I will be posting sometime in the next month or so about those plans!
