Back to School Homework Helpers

homework1 It’s that time of year… back to school! We’re seeing a lot of excited faces and some “not so excited” faces as we inch nearer to the start of school. Growing up as a child, I remember the only resources for homework in our house were : A) mom or dad, B) the household encyclopedia or C) a trip to the public library. We always walked uphill, both ways, in the snow, without shoes to the library, only to find the book of interest was checked out for another two weeks.

Today, with the internet, kids have more access than ever for help with their homework. Sometimes, however, the resources are less-than credible. For instance, you really shouldn’t send your bank account number to a Prince in Zimbabwe who is ready to transfer $1,000,000,000.00 to you, should you so graciously agree to pass along your information and bank card security PIN. In the interest of saving you time, we’ve complied a list of our 5 Favorite Homework Helpers, courtesy of Nickelodeon for Kids.

  1. Fact Monster – Ever hear the whine “Mo-om, how do you …?” during homework time? Teach your kid to be resourceful by sending him to Fact Monster. This site has reference tools like a dictionary, conversion calculator, math formulas, even flash cards.
  2. HowStuffWorks – The award-winning Web site HowStuffWorks helps kids not only learn the facts but also the why’s and how’s behind scientific and real-world concepts.
  3. Internet Public Library – Bring all the nation’s public library reference desks right to the desk in your kid’s room. We’re personally addicted to the directories of census data, geography and quotable quotes.
  4. Math.com – Where was this Web site when we were in high school? The Homework Help section is divided into math levels, from basic math to calculus. Got a kid that needs to study? Go to the Math Practice section and tell him to get crackin’!
  5. Library of Congress Kids & Families Page – The largest library in the world invites kids to “log on, play around and learn something.” Homework-help resources include world maps and information on countries, fun facts from American history and more encyclopedic references for students.
