  • LIST: 8 Educational Sites and Online Lessons for Kids
  • Due to the recent pandemic, many industries worldwide are now adapting to the “new normal” scheme, one of which is the education sector. Many schools have put a halt on opening a new school year this 2020, thus resorting to blended learnings, distance learnings, and homeschooling as a way to prevent the further spread of the virus on our little ones.

    However, it still doesn’t mean that learning has to also stop. Fortunately, there are various websites and online platforms that provide easy access to at-home learning resources for students of various age groups and grade levels.
