Q: I would like some ideas about ways to enhance my kids' education this summer. I think they need to do some schoolwork after being in online school so long.- Concerned

A:

First of all, you need to cut yourself a little slack! While your children have been deprived of the normal educational setting, their time with you has been very valuable to their educational growth. All the educational experts agree that spending quality family time leads to greater success in school. Because of lost school time, you probably should focus more than usual on educational activities this summer. However, you do not need to be your children's teachers. Instead, the Internet can largely do the job for you. Not only does every State offer free online education for every grade, there is not a subject that is not supported by some website. You can get a lot of help in finding the best websites from your children's teachers. Here are some you might explore: This Day in History, Fun and Free Educational Websites for Kids, 33 Education Companies Offering Free Subscriptions to Parents While Schools Are Closed, and The Best Nature Webcams for Science Learning at a Distance.
