We spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer, but educational apps can be helpful, too. If kids are spending some extra time on the computer and tablet in the summertime, we want to make sure that they’re still learning. That’s where Educents’ list of the Top 101 Educational Websites and Apps of 2016 has been a lifesaver!
This incredible round-up of educational websites, apps, online curriculum, and digital learning resources is your go-to guide for continued summer learning and the new academic year. You can browse the guide by subject to find the perfect resources for your kids to brush up on certain skills or learn something new!
There are literally 101 great options to choose from. Here are a few that stand out to me:
1. Kids Discover – Kids Discover Online is an interactive online reading platform, offering 3 Lexile(R) reading levels and over 1,000 science and social studies resources, vetted by subject experts.

2. Farfaria Unlimited Ebooks – FarFaria offers over 1000 ebooks for your children. Each story comes to your mobile device as a colorfully illustrated book that they can flip through, read on their own, or have read to them. If they choose to hear the story, each word is highlighted as a professional actor recites it.

    What a great resource you’ve compiled here! Sadly, I don’t have any little ones around right now so I haven’t tried any of these. But I’m bookmarking this page for when my grands make me a great- grand lol

    Gadgets and technology will always be a part of a child’s life these days. And it’s good to have apps that will help them learn especially this summer. I really like these and I’m going to take note of them in case we need it in the future!

    Indeed gadgets and technology will always be part of children and indeed all our lives – so we might as well get over the so oft heard wish for “the good ole days!” 🙂
