Advice for remainder of year

Looking for some advice. I have a 9 year old daughter and we’ve been realizing over the last year that the way we’ve been homeschooling isn’t working for either of us. I plan to switch to CM method in the next school year. I’m not sure what to do in the mean time. We have about 2.5 months left in our school year, then we’ll take a break for the month of June and start our next school year in early/mid July. I’m not keen on continuing what we’re doing because it has really killed her love for learning and is causing a bit of contention during school time. I’d love to hear suggestions of what you’d do for the remainder of the school year.
Also, any suggestions for helping to rekindle her love of learning would be much appreciated!CrystalNParticipant
If it were me, I would just enjoy the time. I would continue with math, go slower if necessary. Spend tons of time snuggling with read alouds. Maybe have her do some copywork if she is comfortable with writing. Spend lots of time outdoors, baking, cleaning, and otherwise being together in positive ways. Do a little “school detox.” Then when July rolls around you both will be ready to tackle some more focused studies.DianapatriceParticipant
I’m not sure what your school currently looks like, but it may be possible to change some methodology before ending. For example, if you have reading books that have worksheets of quiz questions, drop the quiz and try enjoying the reading. Just take a moment to ask what part is making life and learning tedious. I agree with the previous advice. Do some fun learning, like cooking. Save the “punch line” that this is part of school until after the activity has been enjoyed. I hope that is helpful.
