For math and/or critical thinking, for older kids (and their parents!), this site is very, very cool....

I found this awesome monthly newsletter geared towards homeschooled Pagan kids. It looks fun and educational, with a little bit of something for everyone.

There is a page where you can customize a page (like write a child's name) and have it printed out in dotted lines for the child to trace. Or you can print out a page for each letter. You can select the style of print or cursive. The alphabet pages are available in french or spanish, as well.

Came across and purchased some dog treats from Friskypetsupplies.com . They dispatched the product within a couple of days and they have a homeschoolers discount page of 15%. I think it changes monthly so check back but the current discount code is b28zk228wk.

They included a bunch of free doggie treats and information sheets with my order!

Hope this helps someone!

I love this website: http://www.nytimes.com/learning/index.html

It is through the New York Times and has lesson plans. It is good for a huge age of ranges and abilities.

It is challenging for ds, who is 10. There are some articles that are harder partly because of vocab or topic. Then there are some articles that he loves and still talks about.

Hope this isn't a repeat from someone else's list!

Awesome Spelling site

www.spellingcity.com

We started the school year using this site, but they were having a lot of problems with the site crashing, giving the incorrect pronunciations and being unavailable during the day. I didn’t want to recommend it until they had worked out the bugs.

We started using it again and it has consistently been up and running well.

It is a great resource. It is free to register and then you manage your own lists. You can use already published lists by other parents and teachers OR create your own. You just name it something like,

“Seton 4, Lesson 1” or

“Susie’s Gr3 – Week2”

whatever you want.

They even have literature-based ones so if your child is reading “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” they will probably find a published set of spelling words to help them.

The kids can do a “Teach Me” – where the software pronounces, spells and puts the word into a sentence. They can also be tested by the software too & a report can be generated. You can create handwriting worksheets in print or cursive, and the part my kids love the most are the games that are specific to your own spelling words. I think there are six games - games like Word Search & Hangman. Some of the games can even be printed to do on paper.

They even have spelling in sign!

Tip: Use batch entry when doing your own lists - much faster

For me, it helps free up a little time while one child is practicing or even testing so that I can work with another child.

I put together quite a lengthy set of categorized and annotated links to sites that are rich in content but don't have a lot of loud and splashy in-your-face cartoons. It's just a non-commercial site and has been a labor of love. Don't start clicking on individual links at first - bookmark it and skim the pages to see what all's there first - because you can get lost for hours on one tangent. Some of the pages begin with a list of articles to read, but there are annotated links to websites underneath the boxes of articles. 
(EDIT: I haven't been in to edit in awhile, so there are more dead links than I'd like - sorry for that.)
