First, there's time to catch up on all the stuff you plan to do but just never get around to it. The Daisy really needs to work on her spelling so I got her on SpellingCity.com. It was met with a heavy sigh the next day but I sat and did it with her and it seemed to go better.
Then there is the 30-day trial of JumpStart, which both The Daisy and The Boo did for hours. There is actual learning involved - your student has to complete math or language problems in order to earn coins and "buy" things for their JumpStart house and such.For science, I scammed a project off 5 Oranges blog and we worked on "iridescence." Using ice cubes, salt and food coloring, we watched how some colors melded together while others took a little bit of time to do so. The colors also brought out the cracks in the ice, which was pretty cool.
The result was so pretty I just had to put it at the intro to this post!
