Recommended Math and ELA Apps to Enhance Summer Learning- PreK-8

Happy summer everyone!

Regardless if you are a teacher or parent, job well done this school year…thank you for all your efforts!

Educating our children can be a thankless job at times and it is important that those of us who play a role in the lives of children to take time to say, “thank you.” An attitude of gratitude goes a long way. It is important to recognize all the effort made by parents who juggle the many tasks placed in the ever over-scheduled schedules of daily living and for those teachers who “choose” to work in the classroom to make a difference.

Positive collaboration between parent and teacher is the essential key to establishing a sound academic foundation and developing a love of learning in our children. Having gratitude for one another and our given roles is always a good place to start to build this collaborative relationship.

Below is a list of recommended apps from an amazing Educational Resource Team, enjoy!

May we continue to seek knowledge in all things~

Teacher Resource Websites~Great Tool for Parents too This Summer

 

Parents are the first responders in regards to education.  The following sites can be viewed by parent(s) and or caregiver and lessons or objectives can be giving for children ages 6 to 18 each day to enhance learning over the summer. Many of these sites have free educational webinars or videos where parent and child can learn together and have some educational fun! 20 minutes on computer at one of these sites can help your child explore and learn.  Great ideas can be extrapolated from these sites as well, in regards to family outings, educational vacations, field trips and fun summertime projects at home.
