Khan Academy

Does anyone here use Khan Academy for their kids?  I made an account and am wanting to give DS extra things to do at home since his homework situation has become just spelling words and reading. Just wondering if its worth using or if something else is a better option.

Khan is amazing. My kids both use it in their charter school.

I've personally used it to help me with macroeconomics.

I use it in my classroom for students who finish early and need enrichment.  It allows them to move at their own pace and cover topics we aren't yet at in class.  I find it beneficial.

I would also suggest looking at IXL.

Is it mostly online stuff or are there printables too?  from what I've seen it looks to be all online.  Oh and what are coaches?

If money is not an issue, but study island is also a great program and tool for supplementing
