Are you looking for some learning enhancements to help your child maintain skills learned? There are hundreds of resources made available to us right now. This is great, but can also be very overwhelming. Here are a list of some resources I would suggest to help your child maintain progress in content that was already presented or skills that were already taught. If you would like to chat further, please reach out via email. I am more than happy to support in any way I can!
