Web Sites for Summer Learners And Home School Families

One of the reasons for starting this blog was to catalog information so I could easily access it for myself or so I could share it with others without having to search through endless saved lists. So I’m going to start this list and try to keep it updated as I find new resources and old ones become outdated. Please contact me if you find any that are not working or you have any suggestions for additions that would be useful.

You will find some of these sites have been relocated and others I have left here as some people are still locating the site through this post. Please feel free to look under the individual categories for any subjects as there may be more resources on the individual pages that are being kept updated.
