  3. ClassK12 – At the time of adding this website, it was free for teachers but there is some indication that may be “free to try” in the future. It’s pretty straightforward and easy to use. Adjust the difficulty level to match student performance. Real-time feedback and performance reports. K-5 students can practice before they “play” in whatever assignment given. Worksheets are also provided.
  4. Collins Dictionary (Grammar Guide) – This section is more of a tutorial for educators teaching language arts (including grammar) than it is for teaching directly to students. A great way to brush up on some of your existing knowledge.

It looks like some work has been done to continually improve this program though. The basic option is free but premium resources require payment.
