Summer Bucket List

Since moving to Morocco, I have officially begun homeschooling my two older sons in Summer Experience Scavenger HuntEnglish.  They both go to school all day in Arabic and French, but I don’t want them to lose their academic English level, so we also do English activities throughout the week, including reading, writing and math.  Over the summer, I plan to work with them on each of these activities, and then I plan to use a lot of experiential learning.  In past summers, we have used my summer scavenger hunt to guide our experiential learning.  (Grab this summer scavenger hunt for FREE from Google Docs.)  But, this summer, my kids and I made a “Summer Bucket List” of 60 things to do this summer, and we’re going to try to do one a day.  My kids and I came up with the list together, with each of us taking turns.  Some of my favorite items that made the list are:

7.  Camp in the Living Room

23.  Use the Scale to Weigh Things in our House

26.  Clean the Whole House (yes the kids added this to the list!)

35.  Do Science Experiments (My oldest son really wants to be a scientist!)

38.  Have a Records Day (Who can bounce the ball the longest?  Who can stand on one foot the longest? etc. – My oldest son is obsessed with World Records right now. )

40.  Play Souk (My kids are obsessed with traditional Moroccan Markets.)

46.  Learn Everything we can About Another Country

54.  Write letters to family

59.  Put on a Puppet Show

 

To view the complete list – feel free to stop by Raki’s Rad Resources.  In the mean time, please tell us - What’s on your Summer Bucket List?
