I have compiled this list of different Online Educational Resources/Activities you can do with your child (children) over the summer or anytime to help keep the learning process going and to help prevent summer regression. I have learned them by searching the internet for different things that would be educational, fun and that may help my own son. I simply have kept them around and now have organized/compiled them into this list! They are activities that you and your child may enjoy doing and that may help with different skills! Please keep in mind I have not validated nor am I responsible for any information or services provided by third parties and I claim no responsibility for the content of these sites. The websites listed are placed for informational purposes only. I recommend that you check them out prior to allowing your children to use them to ensure safety.
As always, you know your child best!
