Anyone know of free educational sites for elementary age? Ds6 is going into first grade, he already able to do some of the work and has been for a while. I'm looking for sites I can put him on every now and then to do activities/games/whatever that are educational.
Yes I know there's plenty of other ways and we do them but I allow him on the computer once a week (if earned) for a little while.

There are alot of free math websites which are fun.  My dd who is in 2nd grade still does nick jr and those type sites to keep "old" skills fresh. Starfall is good for reading/phonics.  Our public library even has free websites for children that are educational.

We mostly been building off the things he knows if that makes sense? Like for addition instead of adding up to 10 I'll go up to like 13 and keep working upwards from there. I forgot about starfall, we've used that before :)
Idt our library has anything they don't even have their own website lol

Wow thanks! Lol. We def needed science and social studies because those are the areas I'm not so great with (learning myself or helping learn lol) and workbooks are so hard to find for this age without paying a ton :( the closest we've gotten to science type stuff is different activities I've found on pinterest with like diy lava lamps, fizzy stuff, exploding bags and mostly fun sensory type stuff so both the older kids can do it (6 and 3)
