A BIG list of fun learning websites to keep the learning going all summer long!


Here is a list of some great websites to keep the learning going all summer!  I got this list from my son's online school program.  Hope you enjoy it!  We have a summer schedule to keep the boredom away and keep the learning going strong all summer.  It includes 20 min of practicing a skill every day, 30 minutes of learning, 30 min of reading, and journaling every day.  That is only the learning portion there are some chores in there too, but this list makes a helpful addition to finding fun ways to spend those allotted time chunks.  He has his own chore chart with the above items on it so he can gauge where he is, and at the end of the week we earn a trip to dairy queen, the park, etc... for getting it all done.  Here you go!
