FREE, FUN RECOMMENDATIONS TO KEEP KIDS (AND MAYBE CAREGIVERS, TOO) ENTERTAINED AND PREVENT SUMMER LEARNING LOSS – WEEK 4

For this fourth week of summer enrichment, I am recommending games and activities from a variety of sources. 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. Please email me at charityawareness@commonheart.org with questions or comments.
