12 Educational Sites to Keep Your Child Learning All Summer

Websites and online services can be a great resource when trying to keep your child learning over the summer and other breaks from school. But it can be hard for parents to know which ones pack a lot of educational content and which are just flashy fun. To help, I’ve selected a dozen of my favorite educational sites for either engaging with online or downloading worksheets to do with your child.

Some of these sites are intended for teachers but will be useful to parents looking for enrichment activities. Most are aligned to common core standards, appeal to different learning styles, and offer high-quality content. A few will cost you, but if you’re seeking good instructional content, the expense may be worth it.
