Kid-Safe Homework Help Sites
The school year is underway for most people and as a result, I've gotten several e-mails asking me about kid-safe websites that offer homework help. So instead of answering these e-mails one by one...and because I think any parent or teacher would benefit from information about such sites, I decided to post an article about it.
Many teachers already have preferred sites for student homework assistance. My advice to parents is, if your child's teacher recommends a specific site, use that site. If you still need more help, here are a few that I know of:
Smithsonian Institute Encyclopedia - http://www.si.edu/Encyclopedia_SI/default.htm
KidsClick - http://www.kidsclick.org
Kids.Gov - http://www.kids.gov/
WebLens for Kids - http://www.weblens.org/children.html
AOL Kids Homework Help - http://kids.aol.com/homework-help
Certainly these aren't all the good homework help sites out there. So I am asking all of you...If there are any sites you know of that are... A. kid friendly (meaning safe) and B. free, leave a comment or send me an e-mail and I will add it to my list above.
