Summer Learning Help: 101 Educational Websites and Apps
We are already about halfway through the summer! If your kids are like mine, they like to play outside, with friends, etc. but they also need a little quiet time. I've been trying to sneak in a little learning this summer so my 2nd grader has been spending time on educational apps.
With this in mind, I wanted to share Educents' list of the Top 101 Educational Websites and Apps of 2016. This is really a helpful resource when you are looking for apps or online programs that actually offer some learning and fun.
This incredible round-up of educational websites, apps, online curriculum, and digital learning resources is your go-to guide for continued summer learning and the new academic year. You can browse the guide by subject to find the perfect resources for your kids to brush up on certain skills or learn something new!
There are literally 101 great options to choose from. Here are a few that stand out to me:
1. Kids Discover - Kids Discover Online is an interactive online reading platform, offering 3 Lexile(R) reading levels and over 1,000 science and social studies resources, vetted by subject experts.
2. Farfaria Unlimited Ebooks - FarFaria offers over 1000 ebooks for your children. Each story comes to your mobile device as a colorfully illustrated book that they can flip through, read on their own, or have read to them. If they choose to hear the story, each word is highlighted as a professional actor recites it.
3. Learn to Read App: Lifetime Subscription - With music, games, lessons, and stories, HOOKED ON PHONICS: LEARN TO READ is the simplest, most effective and most fun way to learn to read. Enjoy songs, games and interactive entertainment in a style that has never been seen before in an educational app.
