My Child’s Homework is Giving Me a Headache! - REPRINTED FROM WOMANSDAY.COM
Do your kid’s school lessons leave you scratching your head?  Six free homework-helper websites come to the rescue for both of you.


The Internet Public Library Kidspace An exhaustive roundup of educational links, developed by a consortium of colleges and universities, complete with homework help section.  Does your child need an idea for the science fair?  This site leads you to a link of projects with instructions.


Fact Monster From the folks at Information Please/Pearson Education comes an attractive, easy-to-navigate reference site.  Flash cards, multiplication tables, history timelines, biographies of U. S. presidents…they’re all here. 


Kid Info Created by retired teacher Linda Guterba, this site categorizes links according to the curriculum covered in most U. S. schools, be it ancient Rome or the solar system.  You’ll discover online atlases, dictionaries and encyclopedias.


Math.com If you’ve forgotten what an integer is, you’ll need this site’s arithmetic refresher courses.  From basic addition and subtraction to ratios, algebra and geometry, it takes you through the steps of finding a solution.


National Geographic Kids Take a virtual tour of the natural world, including its people and places, flora and fauna.  When your third-grader asks you the name of the red-eyed tree frog (Agalychnis callidryas) or the population of China (1.3 billion), travel here.


B. J. Pinchbeck’s Homework Helper Recommended by the University of North Carolina School of Education and other educational institutions, this one-stop 411 was created by a 9-year-old with his dad.  That was 12 years ago, and B. J. is still offering more than 800 updated links to subject matters from art to social studies…even recess.  You’ll also find links to study guides, such as studygs.net, that can help your child with time management and other learning skills.


Ask your child’s teacher if she posts homework help online.
