We have grown out of our house and will be putting our house on the market and moving in the next 2-3 months.
Do you have any advice for keeping up with school during a move? I need some very practical help and suggestions.
I don't feel like we can take a tremendous amount of time off, although I know that some time off will be necessary for packing, actually moving our things, etc. My 5th and 3rd graders are not where I want them to be academically for the year based on my own goals for them, and I want to keep plugging along.
Also, reading hasn't totally clicked with my 1st grader, so I don't want to just call off school for her, even though she's still little. (I am a big fan of play based learning, for what it's worth...)
I considered doing just the basics: grammar, math, Latin, writing. But we're already behind where I projected us to be in history and science is practically non-existent right now as it is.
There's part of me that thinks it's absolutely okay to put school work aside for a month or so and just school through the summer. Yet, there's another part of me that doesn't want us to get any further behind.
Any thoughts or suggestions or wisdom? Any experience with moving a whole pile of kids will still schooling them?
[My 12 yo is in a private school this year, so I'm only teaching my 10yo, 8yo, and 7yo. There's also the 11-month-old tornado along for the ride.]
