Summer is a great time to gently introduce and practice vocabulary skills!

vocabulary-jar-400x600
My kids cringe if I tell them we are doing school during the summer. They want that break just as much as I do! I love how summer gives us all a break and we can have fun and just enjoy each other instead of having to do homeschool. I don’t like not doing anything though. We still have to keep the learning going somehow. That’s why I love this Summer Word Jar Idea! This is a great way to help your kids build their vocabulary in a fun, conversational way.
