50 Educational websites

Hey Everyone,

starfall learn to read

Today we’ll be taking an look at some very nice web-based educational sites.  We’ll be covering 50 of those web-based offerings that I’ve divided into the categories of ELA, Math, Science, History, and then general educational sites. I’ve used all of these websites since I opened a summer tutoring program in 2011 and/or during homeschooling.  I’ve included a print button at the top. Next week we’ll explore some of the accessibility options in the iOS and Google platforms.

This blog entry 014 is entitled “50 Educational Websites 014″

About Jeannie Bolstridge

At retirement age in 2009 I began an educational 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation to support teachers and parents of struggling young students. A certified therapy dog, peer-to-peer tutoring, and computer/mobile devices are the most successful supports I've found while tutoring. As of 2014, the corporation/nonprofit is voluntarily dissolved, but Max and Mrs B continue to make local appearances as always. We have plans to spread the joy of reading on the digital platforms too.
