Top 10 Favorite Back-To-School Websites

School will be starting soon ! (Yay !!) It's been a wonderful summer, but now it's time to get back to the business of school.

During the school year, the kids attack me with tons of homework-related questions, so I've compiled a list of sites I use to help me to help them.

1. EAI Education- Sooooo much stuff, reasonable prices.

2. Scholastic- We've got some really nice workbooks from this site and check out their bargain bin for some great deals.

3. English Irregular Verbs - Hey, you just never know. Every year I have to help a kid with some irregular verbs on a homework sheet. It's good to be prepared.

4. Easy Testmaker- Why yes...I do give pop quizzes. :c)

5. Brighter Minds Media- Computer Games. Some of the prices are really good.

6. MindWare- I love games that make kids think. This site also has books and puzzles that will inspire your child's mind.

7. Software from Shhhhh....don't tell anybody. has great prices on computer games.

8. Steve Spangler Science- Science class sure has changed a lot since I was in school. Everything seems so rushed. This site has stuff to inspire the scientific side of your child.

9. WebWiseKids- Want to teach the kids about Internet safety in a unique and fun way ? Go to this site and click on Programs. There are some interesting looking games (based-on real life scenarios) that will get your kids thinking and hopefully open up a dialogue about being safe online.

10. Book Adventure -Book Adventure is a FREE reading motivation program for children in grades K-8. Children create their own book lists from over 7,000 recommended titles, take multiple choice quizzes on the books they've read, and earn points and prizes for their literary successes.

Have a great school year !!
