Avoid The COVID Slide With These Great Products.
You can use these fun and educational products to help your kids avoid the COVID slide. Just like everyone we have been adjusting to learning from home and a new way of life.
Previously known as Summer Slide, the “COVID Slide” is here and it’s real. According to a survey conducted by Varsity Tutors, about 68% of parents are concerned about their children falling behind grade-level expectations as a result of remote learning from the current COVID-19 outbreak. Which is why products that continue education from home are more important than ever. Such kits and toys can stimulate hands-on learning which can go a long way in keeping students on track, get them through the current crisis, and prepare them for the school year ahead.
Please take a look at the STEAM products below which can help prevent the “COVID Slide”.
