Summertime brain drain is real! On average, children can lose up to two months of education over the summer break. And sometimes it can be tough to find ways to keep their little minds learning. We have several online learning sites that are sure to keep little minds learning and have fun at the same time.
While reading a book is one of the best way to practice reading skills, this can be challening with kids who are struggling to learn to read in the first place. Sharpen reading skills and boost confidence through online games. Try these online tools:
