Code Spark

This is an app for young children to begin learning coding. An interesting quote from the site: "We believe all kids are natural builders and programming is one of the most rewarding and powerful ways to build." The cost for the app is a bit high, but there are some free teacher resources that look very useful.

Science Buddies

This site has lots of free resources for science projects and fairs. You can find project ideas, step by step guides and even help in organizing your own science fair. There are also lesson plans, and integration with Google Classroom. Projects kits, with materials and instructions are available for reasonable prices.

Read Theory

A free online reading comprehension program. Students begin with an assessment and all assignments/quizzes are automatically generated by the program. Parents can check progress through online reports. A sister site provides printed materials at very reasonable prices.

Curiosity Chronicles

This is a brand-new homeschool history curriculum. It looks like a classical approach to history, with the first volume on ancient civilizations out now and the next on medieval history in the works (no target date is mentioned.) It will be similar to the Story of the World books by Susan Wise Bauer, but intentionally secular. I know it will be eagerly awaited by many homeschoolers!

Go-Lab

This is an incredible, free resource for science learning. A collection of online virtual lab tools and apps for designing and carrying out virtual experiments. You create learning spaces combining a lab and apps (and adding other online or resources) for your individual use. You can also copy and adapt learning spaces created by others. This resource has great potential for encouraging your budding scientist!

STMath

This is an online math curriculum for elementary and jr. high levels. It presents concepts visually and uses creative problem solving to build understanding. A bit pricey, but it appears to be a very solid approach to math learning.

Soft Schools

This website has a wealth of free resources, including information pages, online games and quizzes, printable worksheets and more. Covers all grades and nearly all subjects. Much of the content is available for free (with many ads, some of them rather intrusive!) But the subscription price is reasonable and gives you a few nice features.
