Although labeled as a writer’s playground and answers to the prompts could be written down, there are many things to do, look up, and discuss. An example of a great car-time discussion could be the entry for Fathers’ Day:
“Fathers’ Day: [June]16 What do you call your father? What do you call your grandfather? What other names for father do you know? Which is your favorite? What other ways is Father used? For example: Father Time.”
Have you thought of trying unit studies, but didn’t want to buy one? Do you want to learn as a family, gently keep up skills (or learn new ones during “summer vacation”), or get the most out of a trip? Look over this extensive list of free unit study plans arranged alphabetically. Some suggestions are for one age/grade, but cover multiple subjects within the framework of one topic. Others include activities to draw in multiple ages as you all learn about different subjects connected by one topic.
We missed the dates (June 2 through 8), but it’s never too late to learn good safety information. Does your family know what rip currents are and why they are dangerous? Good spots to begin include the NOAA/National Weather Service page and the Red Cross rip current page.
