Want a chance at a $25 gift certificate or audiobook of your choice from CurrClick? Keep reading. I’m having a contest. Here comes the fancy introduction…
I consider us year-round homeschoolers just because we like to be able to take breaks whenever interesting opportunities come up. That means that we do homeschool off and on during the summer.
But since homeschooling means far more than just reading and doing written work, we actually are learning even when we’re not “doing school.” I laughed when Sprite expressed relief at having a break from homeschool during our two months in America. My mom noticed the irony of her comment too and gave me a knowing smirk.
During that time we did lots of history and science learning– all hands-on and real-life.

So what are YOU doing this summer for homeschooling? Share what you’re doing here in a blog comment to enter in my Summer Homeschooling CurrClick Contest. Better yet, make an entire blog post on summer homeschooling and link it in your comment. It can be “normal” book work, field trips, special projects at home, or vacations that integrate learning.
Currclick is sponsoring this contest with a $25 gift certificate or an audiobook of your choice to the winner. Isn’t that nice of them? (And because all of CurrClick’s products are available for immediate download, this contest is open to anyone in the world!)
Did you even know that CurrClick sells audio books? They do.
We are big fans of audio books and stories. Sprite has quite a collection of CDs and MP3s that she listens to often. I love that she’s hearing great literature rather than watching mindless movies.
Want to learn about audio books? Here are some links –
- Audio Homeschool
- How to Painlessly Add More Books to Your Reading Schedule
- My Audio Books bookmarks at Tagfoot
Listening to audio books is a great way to sneak in some summer homeschooling without anyone realizing that it’s happening.
I’ll choose a winner on July 26.
And while you’re at it, find a photo from your summer homeschooling travels to contribute to the CurrClick Travel the World Photo Contest. Five finalists will receive the entire Map Trek Series from Knowlege Quest. And the Grand Prize winner gets a Garmin Nuvi 205W GPS Navigation system.
