After a year of doing school at home, many kids are probably burnt out at the thought of doing another assignment or having to read another book. But with the new school year creeping up already, it’s time for parents to get their children ready (and pumped!) about heading back to class.

Just in time for back-to-school season, Amazon has added a bunch of sweet new tech discounts to their school deals page. With everything from smart speakers that help with homework to noise canceling headphones that will ensure laser-focus during silent reading time, these deals are sure to refresh your kiddo’s school routine and get them excited to go back.

BEST FOR HELPING WITH HOMEWORK: Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) Kids — Save $79.99

If you have a busy household and an independent kid on your hands, the Echo Show 5 will keep them occupied and give you a little more free time. It’s perfect for helping with homework, thanks to built-in Alexa functionality, and it comes with a free year of Amazon Kids+, with access to thousands of kid-friendly videos, audiobooks, games, music stations, and more. It’s also great for bedtime since kids can set their own alarms, listen to a bedtime story, and turn off smart lighting using only their voice. Plus, it’s packed with parental controls, so you can decide the screen time, search limits, and approved contacts.
