We school year round. Some may ask why. Well, for us its simple. In our home learning never stops. We don’t have a seperation between learning and life. Its all wrapped up together.
We take breaks through out the year. We do 3 week on, one week off. And the week off is usually used for lots of extra outside play, the boys can explore any interests they have and its a way for them to relax. They can play their playstation for a couple hours a day, play a computer game a few hours, play with their castle play set creating stories or even read for many hours a day(my oldest LOVES to read).
Sometimes we need longer breaks. If we feel the need to take a break. We don’t focus on grade levels and starting a new year, ending a school year or any of that. We just enjoy learning and enjoy life.
