7 online options to keep your child learning this summer
We have an unusual summer ahead of us. Typically, during the summer, it’s important for kids to have less structure than usual, so they can relax and play. This year, your children’s needs may be a little different.
Having been out of their brick-and-mortar schools for months and with uncertainty regarding existing summer plans, parents are looking for new ways to keep their children engaged and learning in a structured and productive way over the summer break.
While the “summer slide” always brings risks of learning loss, this summer we believe it will be even more important for students to have structured learning time to help them keep their minds active, bridge knowledge gaps, and prepare for the next school year.
