The Best Learning Tools For Kids In 2022

How do we help our kids cope with the learning loss that they suffered during the past couple of years? Can learning be made more fun at home? The answer is yes

We have spoken at length about the pandemic that has affected our lives over the past 2 years and the innumerable things that got in its aftermath. The fact that children returned to school after 700 days not only gave parents a sense of joy but also relief in now knowing that kids would spend their day doing what they love the most. Learning at school, and being with their friends.

But has it been easy? The past few months, getting back to routine?

As a mom of two, I must confess- no. There is a visible lag in children when it comes to understanding concepts and completing their assignments. The 2 years of staying at home, haven’t helped. Clearly.

And what does that mean for today’s parents? We need to spend more quality time with the children, helping them revise the concepts and teaching them in a way they will understand better. In a way that is not boring, dreary or repetitive. The challenge sounds familiar?

How do we make learning fun and engaging for kids, in a way that they don’t see it as a chore?

Thankfully, today’s problems come with solutions that are ready and quick to use. Today, there are earning apps, videos-books and audiobooks, and smart home devices like Alexa, that help break down a concept or topic in an engaging way to children. And thanks to Hewlett Packard’s PLC (Print Learn Center) campaign, our children can now access a range of worksheets that will make learning not only easier but fun too!

About the learning worksheets:

The team at PLC in talks with senior educationalists and early-years educators have designed over 12000+ worksheets that are apt for children, right from kindergarteners to busy tweens who are handling multiple subjects! These worksheets are bundled together in weekly sets of
20 curated worksheets. They are also designed on the LAR framework (Learn- Apply- Resolve) that helps develop critical skills in children.

With the help of these worksheets, children “Learn” skills that they “Apply” in real life and finally parents step in to help “Resolve” when they have doubts in understanding with the help of other tips and techniques and a world of learning resources they have curated on the website.

You can access the entire set of worksheets for kids at the PLC website. Filtered by age and category, these worksheets will keep your kids engaged and entertained for hours, while they are stuck indoors this summer.
