KHAN ACADEMY is an all-time favorite and go-to website for learning. Covers a whole lot of things and if we are being honest, it is as much a help for parents as it is for kids! Access the website or download their app.

GOOGLE DOODLES

 Google has been posting games and other fun things as part of their google doodle efforts on their home page. It is fun for all ages, especially kids. Here is a link to access them all.

CODING

 

There are several choices here, and while most say they are free, that is only for a few starter bits. That should not deter you, the freebies are good enough and if your kid loves it, then you can buy / subscribe.

Before you dismiss this as not from your country, remember the times we are living now! And these are all online, so really, as long as you like the instructions and understand the language, geography should not bother you.

 

(QVW PRO-TIP. These are also nice places for you to pick up tips and ways to brand yourself and your practice if you are a teacher!)
