Summer Plan

School is almost out and we are starting to think about summer here. One of the most important things for me is that my son keeps reading over the summer, and until this year, he hasn't really been much of a reader. I've already told him that once school is out we will have reading time for an hour first thing in the morning. We're also looking forward to all the fun-looking movies coming out this summer. So--we're working on a plan. He's 12, so right there in between being a little boy and a teen A tween, if you will. So far, this is what it looks like (and of course, it is always subject to change!):

Every day: Reading, Water the garden

Monday: TBA
Tuesday: Food Creation (ice cream, jam making, pickle making, etc)
Wednesday: Movie Day
Thursday: Field Trip
Friday: Library

Possible Summer Movies:
Battle for Terra
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Star Trek (we've actually already seen it!)
Terminator Salvation
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
Land of the Lost
Imagine That
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
G Force
Aliens in the Attic
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
