We've provided lots and lots of Free Choice time every day, but we're also including time for Creativity (drawing, inventing, pursuing musical interests), Exercise, Chores and Gardening. Hubs will be working with each of them on Math skills and Science experiments, and I have time set aside for Read Alouds, Personal Reading and Bible Study.
Last year, we proposed a Reading Challenge for the boys. They both earned their first level reward for it, but we had to nearly force them to "give up" some playtime to fit in their reading. So, we're mixing it up.
While I'm reading with the littles, the bigs are going to have Personal Reading time. They'll be able to read books that interest them, but they're also be doing a lesson from the devotionals they've chosen for the summer. They're both very excited about their picks, and I think they will each gain greatly from them! C chose Devotions to Make You Stronger by Ed Strauss, and E picked Mission Possible: a 40-Day Adventure with Jesus by Chuck Swindoll.
