If you are looking for some bite-sized learning for your child to do when they are not online with the Global Division, consider trying one of the apps recommended below. You can do so many great math and reading games with a deck of cards if you want to keep it low-tech! And flashcards are great too – you could use our Red Word List to make a set for your child.
Our Global Division students have access to Lexia Core 5 – we highly recommend adding a few minutes of this to your child’s day four or five times a week, especially on days that there are no Global Division classes or on days that your child has to miss their Global Division classes.
Keep it fun, frequent, and a bit fast for the best asynchronous results!
As always, your Global Division Team is here to help!
