It may be summer, but we’re still finding fun ways for our kids to learn. Today, we’re giving a spotlight to some of our favorite math learning resources on Parent List.
Khan Academy: Khan Academy is a nonprofit with the mission to provide a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere. Their site makes it easy to find the curriculum that meets your child’s needs, as well as the tools for parents to keep up. Plus, they offer suggestions on how to keep a schedule on those unstructured days! Fast facts: Free tools for parents and learners K-12.
DreamBox: We were first introduced to Dreambox through our school, and my little one really loves playing Dreambox’s games (translation: she’s learning!). One of the many reasons to love DreamBox: kids can be completely independent. In fact, that’s how it was designed. This is a screen-time app that is definitely worthwhile! Fast facts: Subscription based app for kids K-8; a 40% discount is being offered for sign-ups before July 31.
Bedtime Math: If you’re looking for something not about screen time, this is a go-to for fun activities for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re doing a Wacky Water Race, Making Smores, or even a game of Tic Tac Toe, Bedtime Math beaks down the big idea, what you need, and the math behind the fun. And, starting on July 13, Bedtime Math will be a featured guest on CAMP TV: a 1-hour day-camp experience delivered right to your living room! Episodes will also be available to stream at camptv.org. Fast facts: Ideal for kids K-4; super easy for parents to do, too!

I'm a mom of two girls, ages 9 and 12. My daughters love to learn - math, science, reading and coding are their favorite things. Trying to navigate this "new normal" of parenting in a virtual world ... just like everyone else!
