Over 30 Free Virtual Reading and Learning Programs and Ideas For All Ages and Families Collection

Summer is here and there are so many wonderful virtual reading and learning programs and resources being shared with all of us to pass onto our students and families.  

I started a Collection by Destiny to bring them together for our families at Van Meter and wanted to share it with all of you too.
You will find the Summer Reading and Learning Programs For All Ages and Families Collection here.
In the Collection, you will find a wide variety of programs from reading, coding, making, cooking, exercising, researching and more, while learning about interesting topics and new places. 

I have added a description and age or grade level of the program to each too. 

Here are a few that I think look super fun! 
The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami is offering wonderful virtual summer art camps. As the site states, Campers will be introduced to mixed media, painting, drawing, and textile arts during these fun workshops held via Zoom, and led by professional art instructors. Final projects will be featured in a virtual exhibition on MOCA’s website. You will find it here
My favorite digital creation tool, Buncee, has the amazing Buncee Summer Challenge for all of us to be part. 
As they share here on the Buncee blog, 

Tune in with the Buncee team on Twitter to participate in the #BunceeSummerChallenge! Every day at 11AM ET, we’ll be sharing a new activity to keep your creativity in tip-top shape. As a bonus, you can add your finished Buncees to our Buncee Summer Challenge Board!
Camp Wonderopolis is the free online summer-learning destination that's full of fun, interactive STEM and literacy-building topics boosted by Maker experiments.  
There are five different camps available for all ages and you will find links... all of them within the Collection and...
The adorable Summer Reading Worksheet Packet for students K-5 from our friends at Follett...
 ...will inspire families to read together and engage in fun activities they can do throughout the summer.
You will find it at this link and is perfect to post on your library or school social media or email out to families too. I posted it on ours this morning.
PBS shares on Camp PBS Kids, Summer is full of opportunities to play and learn! We know summer might look a little different this year, but Camp PBS KIDS is here to fill your days with creativity, exploration and fun for the whole family. Explore ideas, tips and activities around different themes with your favorite PBS KIDS characters!
The resources,
activities, games,
and ideas for families to learn and have a wonderful summer together from PBS can be found here
I included our Virtual Camp Adventure in the Collection too.

We are now in Week 3, since my students have been out of school since May 22. You will find the website for Virtual Camp Adventure here.
And I have put each week into the Virtual Camp Adventure Collection too. 

If there are other free reading and learning programs and resources you know about, please let me know and we can add them to this Collection.  

This will be a great resource to share with families as we go through the summer.  I can't wait to see where all of our learners go!
