Free, Fun Recommendations to Keep Kids (and Maybe Caregivers, Too) Entertained and Prevent Summer Learning Loss – Week 2

For this second week of summer enrichment, I am recommending games and activities mostly from PBS.  The educational games and online activities may not work on all devices or browsers. You may have to create a free account in order to use them or to save your child’s progress. I have included these resources with the hope of encouraging children to practice what they have already learned, but often on the pages I linked to, there will be links to further resources so children can review what they’ve learned or learn more. If you need help, please email me at charityawareness@commonheart.org and I’ll try to help you when I have time.
