    Advice needed for summer break

    I’ve gone back and forth with this and thought I had decided to go ahead and work through the summer on some things, but we’re about to start a major work project with a new client and there are some other possible (and very good!) life changes in consideration right now.

    My older three can work independently on their review items with a twice-a-week check in for my rising 7th grader’s Math remediation. He’s doing really well now! My rising 3rd grader can do XtraMath and cursive over the summer with no problem.

    C (10yo) has taken off in reading. He finished SC3 Literature but he has another 6 weeks left in math. My plan for the summer was to finish math, do the XtraMath app daily for fact mastery, and try to finish SC Spelling One. My question for him: if he only did XtraMath and cursive for the summer, could he simply start Traditional Spelling I in the fall with the rest of his SC4 core?

    E (7yo) is doing really well but if we stop for the summer she won’t finish SC2 until early spring (she turns 8 in March). That of course means starting SC3 in the spring and then stopping again for summer...I don’t like that idea either. Are there other options I’m missing here? I’m also concerned about her forgetting things over the summer even though she does read some on her own now.

    I’m trying to meet the kids’needs without repeating last year’s schooling-through-summer stress.

    Good!

    Yes.

    If you think you can add 1 hour for phonics/reading 3-5 days a week, plan to do this.

    Good thinking!
