Looking for some websites and resources to help your students continue learning during the summer? Here are 10 great sites that you can share with the families of your Kindergarten, first, or second grade students!Photo Credits: Monkey Business Images, Shutterstock
Some of these sites are geared toward parents (I put **asterisks** by these), while others can be accessed independently by students. Even for student-independent websites, I always recommend that students’ parents visit the website with them to help students get set up correctly.
