Most of these books can be ongoing through the summer, a page or two a day, 15 minutes a day. We have been watching quite a bit of Netflix in the afternoons – I’ll have to make a list of those shows if you’re interested. The boys did quite a bit of intense Writing and Math at the beginning of the year, so these tools are mostly maintaining and practicing. Most of these supplies assume a knowledge of the skills being worked on. Right now, my favorite is the Writing Tales and the cards from iseecards.com for Fractions and Primes.
If you are searching these things out for what people do when they home school boys in Middle School – I welcome you, if you have any questions, feel free to comment or email and I can send links or answer questions. Most of my regular readers know the books already.
