August Ultimate Checklists Freebie

August is upon us and there is one more month left of summer. This is the last month of summer break for many families. Some families wait until September to start school, while others may follow their local school schedule and start in just a couple of weeks.

August Ultimate Lists Freebie

Regardless of when you begin school, August is a very big month of preparations and a great time to get organized. Summer goes by so fast and before you know it, it will be time to start school. Will you be ready?

Planning for the rest of the summer:

Our family takes a big “not back to school” vacation at the end of August and we begin school on Labor Day. That means that this month is a big month of planning our family vacation and making sure that everything is ready to begin school when we get back.

Checklists are a great way to help keep your family on track with everything that you want to finish doing over the summer. They also will help you plan and keep track of everything that you need to get done before school begins. Make sure to take time to pick one thing to challenge yourself on this new school year. Something that you want to focus on for personal growth or for goals for your family.

Finishing out the summer with a bang, and planning out the new school year is an exciting time of new beginnings for your entire family.

What is in the August Checklist Freebie?

This month’s checklist has everything you need to finish out your summer. The planning and organization sheets will be a huge help to get your family ready for a new school year. Take the time to reflect on what changes you would like to see for your family this year and use our checklists to help you implement them.

You will love thinking about the new school year and all the fun things you can do. There are lots of creative and fun field trip ideas too, so don’t forget to get your field trips planned out. Planning field trips along with whatever subjects you are learning in your homeschool is a great way to keep your kids engaged. Field trips make learning come alive.

June Ultimate Checklists and Planning Resources

June is a time where school has mostly ended, or is winding down to be a lighter more relaxed load. Now it begins the time for summer planning. Whether you school year round or take a full summer off for school, there is still a lot of summer fun to be had.june ultimate lists text with image of a beach.

Summer time is a great break with the ability to spend extra quality time with your family or friends. Not only are there summer vacations or staycations there are lots of activities and events to attend. The summer season also includes lots of cook outs, picnics and time spent around the water.

Especially if you live somewhere that is hot, like we do here in Florida, you will be spending a lot of time around the water this summer. If we are outside for long periods of time it must include water since it is always so hot in the middle of the day.

As you are planning for your summer events don’t forget to plan and schedule swim lessons, or refresher swim lessons. My kids have great memories of their summer swim lessons. Once they get over the fear of the water, they enjoy the tradition of summer swim lessons. We reward them with ice cream and popsicles at the end of the week too which is another great memory and summer tradition.

June events to plan for:

Other events that you will want to make sure you plan for this summer is Father’s Day and any June birthdays. You  might as well get started on planning for the 4th of July as well. Since June is usually a lighter month of school (or maybe you take school off completely), there may be some summer projects you want to accomplish while you have the time.

Summer break is a great time to work on any home improvement projects or to reorganize book shelves or the school room. We like to go through bedrooms over the summer and make piles of donations to take to local thrift stores. I try to get my children to purge clothes, toys and books. We even take them to resell shops to earn some extra money for summer treats and trips.

This month’s Ultimate Checklists subscriber freebie has all of the planning sheets that you need for the month of June.

What is included in the June Ultimate Checklist?

This month’s checklist has planning help for Father’s Day with gift ideas, June birthdays, and 4th of July planning sheets. There are even healthy eating and weight loss goals for summer. Of course, there are still the blank ones for those that like to plan everything out themselves and customize the lists for their families.
