Welcome to the first official day of Summer! Teachers and homeschooling parents everywhere are busy building lesson plans and planning educational activities for 2016-17 so of course, that is exactly how I have been spending my time. The best part of lesson planning: it can be done poolside while watching the littles splashing in the shade! Last year, we decided on the annual tradition of “leveling up” on July 1st each year. This means that as of next week, we legally have a first-grader! Wild Child is also beginning PreK4 this year meaning we are sure to have loads of fun adventures coming your way!

Starting the first full week of July, we will be sharing our PreK4 and first grade lesson plans, our roadschooling strategies, supplies, and organization tips, how we keep track of our goals, and also how we build our community while on the road. The next school year will bring printables, pre-planned unit studies, curriculum resources, reviews of some amazing products, and loads of giveaways. Be sure to sign up for emails to receive our weekly wrap ups so you can keep track!
Now, for some really exciting news: This month, one of my favorite resources for Homeschooling is having a massive Homeschool Sale! Read below for more information about the 2016 Summertime Homsechool Sale!
For a limited time, get Free Shipping on all things homeschooling, roadschooling, and un-schooling at Educents through the end of June with code DISCOVER16. Since it’s just one use per customer, I suggest taking stock of what you have and your plans for the year so you can get Free Shipping on everything you need.
Here are a few of my top picks ranging from Science & Math to Music & Language. What do you need to stock up on?
Summer is a great time to start conducting science experiments – there is a little more space outside for a mess! This exclusive bundle at Educents.com has seven kits for utterly fascinated learning. Whether you have a traditional homeschool, or you’re un-schooling, this is a perfect set for science. And so fun!
Price: $59.99 down from $109.99 plus Free Shipping
Whether you’re new to Fred or you’ve been using his story to teach math intuitively to your littles for a few years, there’s probably a new topic to cover (the series goes up until college!). This sale is a great opportunity to stock up on the next steps, whether it’s multiplication, algebra or beyond.
There are tons of instruments that kids can learn to play even at Educents, but the ukulele has such a wonderful, kid-friendly sound. This is a great instrument and a strong program for beginners learning their first notes.
Price: $49.95 down from $69.95 plus Free Shipping
Studies show that kids pick up languages far quicker than adults, so it’s great to get a head start when they’re little. Learning a foreign language also helps kids learn about the world, and better understand important values at home within a larger context. We’ve chosen to learn a language from our family heritage. What would you learn?

This kid-friendly tablet is the on-the-go homeschooling mom’s best friend. Kids become fluent in technology and the subject matter with a portable, easy-to-use tool. That’s a win for everyone.
Price: $99 plus Free Shipping
Free shipping is great – and so are freebies! I like this one gearing up for Independence Day because it has famous people from US history, from George Washington to Sally Ride. Great for kiddos working on reading comprehension, and a nice supplement to social studies.
