She may want to look for Usborne Books at her library -
most education books from Usborne are internet linked
with supplement material for lessons. So if she can
check out and internet linked book and use a printer,
she may be able to get more material to use, esp.
the sciences.

No matter what ever material she may need -
please encourage her to ask the librarian if they would
be able to do inter library loans or if they have a
wish list of books patrons have asked for that the
library could order if funds are available.

Don't know if this is already here but you can get a free sub to Family Fun magazine. I can usually get decent craft ideas and such in there.

This is a very good point! And I was getting lost with all the links.

But I think I would find it hard to teach English directly as it's not my first language. Maybe I should use like an adult English grammar to learn myself and then explain it to him? What would you suggest?

Here's the website I wanted to share, as I find it so cool for being so simple, straightforward, without distractions: http://www.literacycenter.net/

I love this site for writing topics for my kids

http://www.writingfix.com/index.htm

I like the area for kids. It comes up with crazy things like "Write about a rabbit, a forest and a balloon" My kids think it is so funny and they enjoy writing.

This is a link to a whole collection of organized and annotated links that I call Homeschooling Gateway to the Internet. There are links to sites with resources and information on learning and teaching - curriculum info - math - arts - music - sciences - people, history, and civics - arts - college & career info - special challenges - mythology - downloadable learning material freebies - interactive educational activities - educational games and puzzles - fun kids' resources - long distance learning - Internet research and reference tools - as well as a Guide to CA Field Trip Resources. There are even sites that have science experiments for kids - lots of great stuff.

Homeschooling Gateway to the Internet


ENJOY! Lillian

This site generates tracing paper for writing practice. You can enter any text you want and print the page with the words spelled out in dots on that wide-ruled three-line paper. You can also print the entire alphabet for tracing in either upper- or lower-case.

How about www.studydog.com

It is free to download to your computer. It is a reading program for prek - second grade children. A great program that is researched and validated and of course, tons of fun for the kids.

check out enature.com. You can enter your zip code and it gives you all the insects, animals, birds, and plant life native to your area. Lots of great facts related to each and nice photo id of each being. Great for scavenger hunts.

I just found a bunch of worksheets about Pandas and animals at http://www.memphiszoo.org/teacherslounge.html

Its targeted at a trip to the zoo, but if your kid is into animals, it has some fun stuff, you can just do

Check this out! Someone on here linked to this the other day (I *think* it was Lillian but can't find the post now!).

http://www.eduweb.com/portfolio/adventure.php

You go there and then search by subject or grade and you find all sorts of cool games to play! I found a whole bunch for Bridget and sent them to her in an email and she's *still* playing them! There was one on bugs and one on the ocean she's really enjoying. Also an art one she did for awhile. She's doing the ocean mystery one (again) as I type

What a great thread! Has anyone followed up on the idea to archive it yet?

For any child learning to read, www.studydog.com has free lesson sets to download, with lovely graphics, a gentle pace and a curriculum-based lesson design.

Check this one out and see what your little ones think.

Not a link, but the book "Homeschool Your Child for Free" has tons of great websites listed in it (that's what the whole book consists of). They give discriptions of the websites and rate them.

KidPrintables has some neat mazes, dot to dots, and other puzzles. I haven't looked in the other areas (colouring pages, word searches, etc.).
