I wanted to add that I would REALLY appreciate any links to educational songs on the internet (free or not, and for any age level). Music makes things so much easier to memorize!

Busy mom and loving it... dd (2/03), ds (6/05), dd (8/07), ds (12/09), ??? due 5/12

Songs for Teaching: thousands of pages -- many with lyrics, sound clips, and teaching suggestions.

Me too about the subbing.
My son only just turned one, but I am trying to get as much info as I can so that DH and I can make sure that we know which way we're going to go - I think there's never a thing as being too informed. At least not about something as important as our son's education right?

These links are awesome!

wow - there's so many pages here! i'm sorry if these link have been posted already, but there's too many posts to check first. here's my favorites.

www.coreknowledge.org
(click on the "lessons" link and you can choose FREE unit lessons by grade. also scroll to the bottom of the lessons and there are links to the colorado curriculum which are AWESOME free unit lessons too!)

http://intranet.cps.k12.il.us/Lesson...ics/index.html
FREE structured math curriculum

http://www.learnnc.org/lessons/search?grade=K
these are FREE lesson plans from the state of NC, but anyone can appreciate them. this link is for kindergarten because that's my dd's age, but to change the grade just click the grade level on the right.

http://www.learnnc.org/students/K/
this is a media center for kindergarten with awesome FREE game sites!!


http://www.tanglewoodeducation.com/ReallyReading2.pdf
teach your child to read with this FREE curriculum


www.handsofachild.com
lapbooking for unit studies - they cost but are very reasonable. they always have a "freebie" you can download too!

www.homeschoolreviews.com
my favorite website to review curriculum and books by other homeschool moms before i spend money

www.homeschoolclassifieds.com
my favorite place to buy used curriculum


http://www.faithfirst.com/html/catec...downloads.html
if you teach the bible as a subject, this is a catholic website (which i'm not) but i love the FREE bible lessons and worksheets for grade k



anyway, i've got tons more...but i don't want it to be overkill. these are my top favs!!

Not sure if this has been posted. I just found it and thought it was awesome http://www.freekidscoloring.com/alph...ants_alphabet/
It is coloring pages for different letters of the alphabet with plants and animals (that start with that letter) beautifully drawn inside the letter itself. I just printed a couple of copies off for the kids and later I'll be printing off a set to color myself.

Studydog (phonics games) is free again - not at the official site but at the National Center for Family Literacy:

http://www.famlit.org/site/c.gtJWJdM...1/StudyDog.htm

They have all three levels, for Mac and PC. We got the first two levels over a year ago when they were still free, and I downloaded the third level today. If your kids like computer games, this might be a hit.

Sites for downloading free audiobooks:

http://www.librivox.org/

Tons of classics in the public domain, for kids and adults. Read by volunteers, but still nicely done, from what I've heard so far.


http://storynory.com/

Classic children's literature (and more, I think), read by the same person.

I was just checking this and their site says they have had to pull the free software. Not sure if it'll come back.

Wow! Those are fabulous, thank you! I'm learning so much from them! I hope my guys are as interested in history as Momma and Daddy are.

This site has some free lesson plans for K-3 in both English and Spanish.

And Wondernet has free science activities for the elementary years.

Chemistry.org/kids also has free science activities.

Plimoth Plantation's Website has what looks like a great lesson on You are the Historian: Investigating the First Thanksgiving. I haven't fully explored it yet so I'm not sure how it really is, but I've been to Plimoth Plantation (go if you ever get the chance!) and I would guess it is much more historically accurate than the garbage they teach the kids in school.

I hope you enjoy!
