Happy summertime hello to you!

Since we’re deep into vacations, cook-outs, swimming, gardening, swatting mosquitoes, and avoiding school, I wanted to keep this blog light and share some fun stuff that doesn’t take a lot of energy.

Today’s blog is a combo deal: two blogs for one low, low price!

1. Want some fun writing activities for your kids this summer? Then this blog I wrote for Let’s Homeschool High School’s Blog Hop is the one for you.

Want some fun writing activities for your kids this summer? Want them spending time reading, but don't know where to begin? Help is on the way!

It’s loaded with fun and practical writing activities you and your children can do—and no one is graded!

2. Are you interested in your children reading literature this summer but don’t know where to begin? Then this blog I wrote for Fortuigence will help you on your way.

Developing a summertime reading list and then reading it can feel purposeless, but this fun method lends interest and meaning to the process and to the books.

But wait! There’s more! Ever get tired of homeschooling? Here’s a bonus article that will put things into perspective and give you a reason to keep going!

Whether you are working through the summer or taking it off from school, I hope it’s a great one!

Yours for a more vibrant writing class,
Sharon Watson
