Summer Learning Resources for Parents

During the summer months, it’s critically important for children to have access to healthy meals, safe learning environments, and books and educational opportunities so they can keep learning even though school is out.

The Mississippi Campaign for Grade-Level Reading seeks to provide resources for parents and caregivers to support children’s learning over the summer. Here are a few resources that are freely available and user-friendly!


This publisher’s mission is to help children develop a love of reading and learning, no matter their ability level. Capstone is offering free trials for the following tools to all preschool and elementary school students now through Aug. 1, 2018.
