I'm hs'ing a 1st grader and just had a new baby...  im drowning and have decided to go back to basics as far as schooling goes.  I'm picking a reading website and a math and letting go for the next month or two ... i found reading eggs and nic likes that one... im having a hard time finding a comparable math site (pay is ok)


any recomendations?

My DS is doing 1st grade work he LOVES http://www.ixl.com.  You can do a certain amount of practice each day for free, or you can pay a yearly fee ($79/yr) for unlimited access. With a paid membership, they will tailor it to your state's standards and email you a weekly report for you to keep track of your child's progress.  Another perk is that you have access to several grade levels in case your child is in different spots.


Hope that helps, and congrats on the new baby!

If that link isn't good, google hooda math.  We love it. The kids love it.




We also really like Red Fish-- not just math here. Sometimes, you'll come up on the Donate Now page, but there's always a link to get to the kids page.

We love poissonrouge, but yeah it's not a 'math site'.  But it's a really cool 'open ended thinking skills' site and it's free.  We actually did make a donation since we think it's so awesome and wanted to support them.  :)


For 'pure' math my daughter loves dreambox.  Dreambox and readingeggs are her 2 internet-based 'school' things :)
