We homeschool year round with breaks in between. It seems easier for us to get back to school work after a 2 or 3 week break than a longer one. I laughingly say that my kids are better people when they are doing math problems. We have taken breaks in December, April, July, and September in the past, or when I have had it. This year I am contemplating going 6 weeks on and 1 week off. Taking a break for Christmas, Easter, and around the 4th of July. It seems to help if we all can stop and do something fun, clean the house, and remember that school work is way more fun than cleaning kitchen cupboards. My goal is always to make math facts look more fun that they did a few weeks ago.
Some pictures below of some of our shelves. Would LOVE to hear other people's schedules. How do you break up your year? Year round or summers off?
