The "learning slide" that happens in summer is very real. Students who do not read during the summer are at a disadvantage when school begins in the Fall. They begin the year behind their peers who DID read all summer. One way to keep your child learning is by playing educational games. Some websites claim to be educational, but offer very little true learning value. One website I recommend is Education.com A basic membership is free and you get a limited amount of access to content each month. This limit resets each month. With a premium membership, you get unlimited access to our entire library of games, worksheets, and more. I added a link to my LINKS page, under the STUDENTS section. Check it out.
