While some people are already into their summer vacation, we are still going, with just a a little more than a week left. We finished all of our curriculum that we purchased at the beginning of the year, and now we are reviewing a few of the things my first grader needs work on and doing deeper research into topics we are interested in. As the end of the year approaches, I decided I wanted to give my son an end of the year survey. He filled out a birthday questionnaire the other day and I loved his answers so I look forward to seeing what he has to say for this one. Here’s a copy of the questionnaire if you’d like to try it with your kids too.
In addition to review, we are doing some character building activities and we’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors to wrap up the year. Do you go full steam to the end of the year or do you wrap it up when you’ve covered all the bases? What do you like to do when you’ve used up all of your curriculum?
Also, here are a few free storytime apps available for iPad. I don’t have an iPad so I haven’t been able to try them out yet. Hopefully they’ll be available for android soon as well!
