    Slightly more advanced sites

    I'm about to graduate with a Masters in Education from Delta State University, & worked as an Educational Technology intern last year in a middle school. During that time (& since) I've done a lot of research & used a lot of websites, & these are some of my favorites:

    Khan Academy for Science & Math videos, & math exercises from arithmetic to calculus, etc.
    I've refreshed my own math skills on here & am back up to where I left off 10 years ago in high school.

    Sheppard Software: Fun free online learning games and activities for kids. for Geography & Science Games. for real science career video games

    Arcademic Skill Builders - Fun Educational Games for Kids lower level multiplayer online skills practice games

    TED-Ed | Series various subjects, short videos & questions

    Bill Hammack's Video & Audio on Engineering for video breakdowns of common technologies.

    Crash Course science & history (fairly advanced & mature; says things like "long ass time ago"...): Crash Course! - YouTube

    History in the Movies info on history-based Hollywood movies

    Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs):

    Though this is an older post, I have for some time (before T4L, in fact) had my daughter going to for live audio streaming on books. Great for parents and kids alike, they have all the classic literary books and even non-fictional history. I haven't looked through it all yet, but I thought it was pretty neat! I am also aware of a website,, and if for some reason the library doesn't have it, you can have a book shipped to you. You pay a rental fee, but I believe that if it's under so many days, you can ship it back for free and you won't be charged. Just an idea.

    We use and love here too! It's one of my favorite resources. K12reader looks like another good resource; thanks for sharing that, MadisonJade'sMom!

    My fifth grader uses for spelling. I used to obtain a list of spelling words for 36 weeks. My daughter uses to play games and learn her spelling words.
