For many of us who homeschool that doesn’t mean that learning takes a break. Summer is the perfect time for us to explore new techniques and tools with our students. This summer say goodbye to traditional textbooks and worksheets and say hello to exciting summer homeschool curriculum that stimulates and engages our kids. The best part, all of these fantastic tools are offered 100% free for summer by our friends at the Homeschool Buyers Co-op.

Learn How to Cook

Who wants to turn on the oven when it’s 100° degrees outside? It might sound counterintuitive to suggest cooking lessons over the summer, but Kids Cook Real Food has found just the ticket – InstantPot and slow cooker recipes. You can teach your kids how to cook an entire dinner for the whole family. What could be better than that? How about getting it for free? Done! Kids Cook Real Food is part of The Homeschool Buyers Co-op Free for the Summer program!

It’s All About the Arts

Summertime is also all about exploring new and fun projects that we may be too busy to pursue the rest of the year. Help your children get acquainted with fine arts as they explore the lives and works of Master Artists with Meet the Masters.

Let Your Student Lead

What better time of year to empower your child to take ownership of their education than the summer. There are loads of resources that offer videos that they can interact with at their own pace. The Co-op has included Visual Latin as well as CCC! Streaming Media (you can select one CCC! program) in their Free for the Summer deal!

Keep Skills Fresh

Kicking off a new school year with weeks of review can be frustrating for parents and students alike. This summer we can keep our youngsters’ math skills fresh with DoodleMaths. If one of your older students is preparing for the SAT or ACT, MathHelp.com is a wonderful tool to help ensure they continue to build mastery over the summer. If summertime activities make your kids seem to forget everything you taught them about grammar, then Fix-It Grammar from IEW is a quick and easy way to ensure their writing skills don’t suffer during the summer months!

Make It A Game

Summer is a great time to introduce educational games into our homeschool classrooms. The Co-op has awesome game-based learning programs that we can have free access to all summer long. Kids can learn to code with CodaKid and CompuScholar. Check out Q Wunder’s fun games that reinforce the skills we teach our children every day like responsibility, self-awareness, teamwork, and patience.
