The Books

Our summer reading books will include fiction from the Magic Tree House, I Survived and America’s National Mystery Books series as well as non-fiction from the Who Was…, What Was…, and Where Is books.  One or two books will be recommended for each week’s topic so that you can choose the book(s) that work best for your children.

Children's books including Who Was..., I Survived... and Magic Tree House.

The Unit Studies

The unit studies will be geared toward the elementary school years and will include fun activities to build knowledge and skills in the areas of science, geography, math, history, reading comprehension, writing, language arts music and/or art.  Each unit study will typically take a couple hours to complete, but will also include resources to take your studies further if you would like.
