Welcome to the 2016 First Annual Back to Summer Homeschool Celebration! We always have a big back to homeschool kick off that we call the NOT Back to School Blog Hop, and although we’ll be having that again this year, we thought, “Why not celebrate what we’re really happy about right now? SUMMER BREAK!!” Who is counting down the days? We are!

Back to Summer Homeschool Celebration 2016 by iHomeschool Network

Maybe you don’t take a full summer break. Maybe you do some version of year-round schooling or use the summer for extra work or remediation. That’s fine! It’s still summertime, and we can celebrate the coming of flip flops and water balloon fights.

We polled you to find out what your favorite themes would be for a Back to Summer Homeschool Celebration. Based on your favorites, we created a five-day schedule. Join in the fun by participating with your family. For each daily theme, you will find a list of Top 10 Teaching Ideas and free printables so you can plan your week of celebration with us. 

Although we are scattered all across the USA and the world, we can use the power of social media to connect us during this celebration. Take a photos of your activities for each day, and use #ihsnet when you share them on Instagram so we can see how you are celebrating the coming of summer break.

Besides all of that excitement, we’ve got giveaways (beginning May 23) from some of our favorite companies and bloggers! Be sure to click through to each of the five daily pages to enter to win.
