One Stop Shop: Education Links for Parents and Educators

UPDATED as of 11-1-2020. I have checked the links and offers of free or free trial periods. What is remaining on the list fits those criteria at the time of posting. I apologize if any links do not work or the free promotions are no longer valid.


I have put together a list of free or free trial websites for both educators and parents to use. I have them categorized for Educators (but parents can look too ;) ) and subject area. I will add more to this list as I see them. Please visit my Facebook, or Instagram page or website for more tips.
