On Wednesday, January 8, 2014, Training Coordinator Christine Gornik shared a list of ten free learning websites for kids.
Originally assembled by Lyndsey M. Kuster, a first grade teacher in Baltimore, Maryland, the list provides parents and guardians with fun and educational websites that children can enjoy while learning.
Although created as a resource to help bridge the learning gap that the summer months can serve, the websites are appropriate for any time.
You can download Kuster's print version of the list or browse the sites below (alphabetically).
