Learning doesn't end at school. After school, on weekends, and especially during long breaks it's important for students to stay connected to school and what they've learned. The internet is a near-perfect tool to accomplish this. These are hundreds of fun and interactive websites students and parents can use together for reinforcement, remediation, and advancement.
But how do you know which sites are best? We've done a lot of the work for you. We have put together a list of websites we know and trust. They cover a wide range of subjects and are free for you to use.
We've highlighted a few of these websites below. But for a full list, click on the link at the bottom of this page.
If you know of more websites we've missed, send us an email with the appropriate links and we'll take a look. We'll keep updating this page with more resources, so bookmark (press Ctrl+D) it and keep checking back!
