    Here are some links to other educational internet sites
    which you might find of interest:

    The first four are aimed at parents who teach their children full time at home.
    But they contain a number of links to resources in many subject areas
    which students in mainstream schooling will also find valuable.
    Homeschool Central.
    Homeschool Help at Sassafrass Grove.
    Anne Zeise A to Z Home's Cool Homeschooling.
    Guide to Homeschooling.

    You might like to consider three other spelling sites:
    Spellzone is Shireen Shuster's online, interactive spelling course for older students
    (teenage to adult) who have spelling problems.
    Marie's Free Spelling Course: offers a free, thirty unit spelling curriculum comprising
    a weekly work plan, pre-tests, exercises, final tests and answer key. (USA)
    The Spelling Blog is Johanna Stirling's rapidly-developing site with some interesting thoughts
    about teaching spelling and a collection of free resources to download.

    Spin and Spell is a neat interactive game which covers more than 200 commonly used words.
    The site is ad-free and cost-free and requires no user ID, password, or registration.

    The remaining sites, from all over the world, offer education resources and links.
    The first click will often take you to the English language page. From there you
    can browse around to find what is available in other subjects.
