We know families are looking for fun ways to keep the learning happening.

To help you get started we recommend you do a readiness check. Learning Heroes has an amazing tool for families to use to understand where your child falls on key math and reading standards. You can check it out here. They also have a resource to help you make a plan with your child’s teacher.

Once you’ve completed the readiness check, we’ve pulled together some summer learning resources and activities for families to check out and help you make a plan.
