Summer is just around the corner. It’s hard to believe another school year is almost over. Many of my friends are talking about their plans. Some are taking trips. Some have to navigate summer school. Others are using the summer as a practice run for homeschool. It has me asking, What about summer break? Whether you are homeschooling or not, this is an important question to ask and I think I have a few answers and few tips to help you out.
I shared a post recently about some of the mistakes I made when I started homeschooling. I made the mistake of avoiding interest-led learning in favor of a specific curriculum course and a strict schedule. One of my amazing readers commented and asked me for more tips on encouraging interest-led learning. I decided it would be a fun time to write a post in case she isn’t the only one struggling with how to include interest-led learning. If you don’t homeschool, don’t look away just yet. Interest-led learning is great for all kids.

Homeschool evaluations can be intimidating if you don’t know what to expect. I wanted to take a few minutes and talk about the different homeschool evaluation options. I also wanted to share some of what you can expect.
