Every January, Homeschool.com asks our Product Testers (we have over 9,000 Product Testers as of 2011) to send us a list of their favorite educational websites.  We then compile the results into the Top 100 Educational Websites for the year--and yes, we counted, there are 100! 

You might recognize sites that have been listed before, but there are quite a few new web addresses as well.  Most sites are free, but there are a few commercial sites spattered in--we considered these just too good to omit.

We sure hope you enjoy the list--and if we missed one of your favorites, please let us know.

The Top Five Sites for 2011
