4th of July is typically spent outside, grilling hot dogs or burgers and splashing in the pool. Most don't think of reading 4th of July books, but this is our national holiday. Our kids should understand the importance of this holiday.
Gardening with my kids is one of my favorite summertime activities, and one of the best educational summer experiences I can give them. Each summer, we grow our own food, learn about plant cycles, soil health, and more. From the time that they're toddlers, gardening is part of their lives.
Homeschool curriculum can quickly get expensive, and summer is the time to start purchasing what you need for the next year. If you're like me and trying to pinch pennies, you want to make those homeschool dollars stretch as far as you can.
