  • Quia.com is a great website for any subject according to ages/grade levels. They have fun educational games to help kids learn. :)

  • It's not a website, but I just bought a couple of workbooks for DD. She goes into Kindergarten next year and they have ones for the summer between Pre-K and Kindergarten; Kindergarten and 1st grade; 1st grade and 2nd grade.....and so forth.

  • can go to a learning store for books, I find a lot at the dollar stores or even in the dollar bin at target. Flash cards you can find or even have fun with him and make your own. Just type what you want on the computer and will probley find what your looking for that way. Play games that will help with skills. Reading to him at night or take him to the local library or even a book store for ideas. Wii games, leapster or even v smile are good ones for games along with learning. Just make it fun for him and you.

  • Costco has summer time books that you can buy for kids moving from one grade to the next. They are pretty awesome little books it challenges them for the next grade, and keeps them sharp on the things they learned for the grade they were just in.

  • We bought some workbooks at Sams. My daughter is learning her multiplication tables over the summer (lucky her, lol). She's doing really well too. She'll be ahead of the game next year.
