A no-frills, free online typing course. The interface is simple, and it provides words per minute and error information for each lesson. You can also choose from different language and keyboard layout options.

Time Maps

Rocket Lit

This online program provides adaptive reading passages on history and science. There are quizzes with multiple choice and free response questions for each article. As students progress, the reading level of the passages is adapted to their level. There is also an annotation tool so students can highlight and comment on text. A great tool for learning in science and history, and reasonably priced.


This is a character education program for young children (PK through grade 3.) There are ten stories in e-book format that explore concepts like respect, kindness, and empathy. There are lessons and activities to accompany each story. You can get the stories and a few activities for free, but need to subscribe for most lessons and activities. The activities are very classroom-oriented, so homeschoolers may not get a lot from a subscription. There is also an online game component, which requires signing up for a waiting list.

A great way to experience history and science!
