Do we need to continue working on academics during the summer? I hear that question all the time. Personally, I think we as homeschool families need to take a summer break. However, there are those days where it is yucky outside and the kids are not on a schedule and mom is ready to pull her hair out. Those days are the ones were we are ready for school to start again. Right? There is a little bit we can do to keep a schedule over the summer and still fine tune and keep up with those academic skills. Let me tell you a little bit about the BJU Press Vacation Stations.
These BJU Press Vacation Station workbooks were made with summer time academics in mind. Just enough content to keep your child active in the academics and keep up with those academic skills you have worked so hard to instill over the school year. There are just a few pages for each day and they touch on each of the three “R’s” just a little to review and keep the children active in the content they learned over the school year. Think of these pages as just daily academic devotionals.
Elementary Grades – Vacation Stations
The Vacation Stations are for the elementary grades. There is enough material for 10-15 minutes a day for about 10 weeks. They are very colorful to the eye and lots of fun activities so the children will enjoy them.

Highschool Age – Vocabulary
Looking for something for your older students? Consider the Vocabulary Series. Only 15 lessons and a great summer Independent study. My youngest daughter did these on her own time just because she enjoyed the challenge.
Keeping our children engaged in learning keep their minds sharp and focused. It is so much easier to begin the school year too when they are used to learning while having fun!
How do you spend your summer days? Do you keep your children engaged in learning?
