i remember having a huge list of books for the summer since 6th grade. and all those books were discussed and tested during the schoolyear. if you left the reading for fall or winter, on probably did not have enough time to finish it. in highschool the list was about 15 books. sometimes we got to choose between one author's books.

as for my son, we will take a lots of fieldtrips and have hands on learning. he will take some of his worksheet books to the country with him and lots of books for me to read him. and solve math as part of the everyday life problems.
