Keep learning through the summer with these Alabama resources

ALABAMA (WHNT) — It’s summer in Alabama and with the kids summer vacation. However, the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) said learning is a year-round endeavor.

For the 10th year, ALSDE is partnering with some of the nation’s top educational organizations to promote summer learning and activities; the goal is to minimize the summer learning slide.

A full list of resources is available on the ALSDE Summer Learning website. Resources include:

  • “Find a Book, Alabama” – a Lexile-based tool that provides kids with over 260,000 books to read over the summer. Parents and children can create personalized playlists based on the Lexile lineup and the child’s personal interests
  • Summer Math Challenge – an interactive math skills development tool for students who have completed Grades 1-8
  • Stride Skills Arcade – The arcade offers a mix of online practice games for math, reading, language arts and science skills, as well as video games suitable for a wide variety of interests and online competitions . Accessible on tablets, PCs and Macs, the arcade is free to all children enrolled in Alabama K-12 schools through July 31.
  • Big Universe – Over 18,000 e-books and literacy tools are available for free 24/7 on smartphones, tablets and laptops through July 31 to all Alabama K-12 children

Additionally, Alabama Public Television hosts the Summer of Possibilities educational program on its website, and ALSDE has also encouraged parents and children to explore their local library over the summer.
