Defeat the Summer Brain Drain with Brain Chase

This summer, we'll be continuing to homeschool, but with a focus on the fun things we missed during the year. (science and social studies)

To keep Rachel motivated, we're going to be using +Brain Chase -- a global adventure/treasure hunt for students in the 2nd through 8th grades. 

http://thekennedyadventures.com/fighting-the-homeschool-summer-brain-drain-with-brain-chase/

We'll be scouring the globe for the Sunstone of Cortes, and working on our reading, math and writing skills along the way. 

Come join in the fun with us! You can enter to win your very own membership for your family to keep the learning going!

Teaching Algebra in Your Homeschool with Learning Apps

Admit it, #homeschool  momma. It's been a few years since you've had an algebra class, and you might not have paid very close attention. 

{ahem}

http://thekennedyadventures.com/?p=16131

Do you need some help? Are you stressing as you look ahead at the math curriculum and see algebra looming ahead like a big ugly monster? 

Never fear. 

I've got the solution for you. +DragonBoxApp (available in Android and iOS) teaches your children algebra (and geometry, too!) through game based learning. Your childen won't realize they're learning to isolate variables! You'll wonder "Where in the world was this when I was studying all night in tears?"

Come take a look -- don't forget to enter for your chance to win your own desktop copy!

I planned the school year a few weeks ago. We started our school year yesterday. It's always the first Monday after the 4th of July for us. The kids don't like being outside when it's hot & humid so we do school during this time and take some time off when the weather is better.
