Novel Guides

This site has free guides to a huge collection of novels. Guides include a short summary of the novel, plus summaries of chapters, character profiles, metaphor and theme analyses, and author biographies. If you register for a free account you can also access discussion forums. (Warning: there are some very persistent video ads on this site! Nothing inappropriate, but definitely annoying!)

Wieser Educational

This company carries textbooks, workbooks and ebooks in all major subjects. They are advertised as "resources for struggling learners" so many of the books are high interest/low reading level. There are some useful life skills resources as well. Prices are pretty reasonable.

Chatterbug

Online language program that combines computer lessons and live tutor sessions. The lessons and tutor sessions are tailored to each student so they get efficient practice and progress quickly. The price is higher than strictly online programs, but considering the cost of individual tutoring, still pretty reasonable.

Generation Genius

A library of science videos (similar in style to Bill Nye) aligned to Next Generation Science Standards. Each video has discussion questions, lesson plan, teacher guide, and instructions for experiments. Subscription price is pretty reasonable.

Common Core Sheets

Printable worksheets aligned to common core standards. The content is mostly math, but there are also a few social studies, science, and language arts sheets. Find what you need by grade level or concept, and choose premade sheets or generate new ones. Each sheet comes with an answer key and most can be used online or printed.

Aquila

A children's magazine, published in the UK and available world-wide. Each issue explores a topic, and includes interesting articles, colorful artwork, great information, and hands-on activities. Price is a bit high, but there's no advertising or "fluff", so it worth the investment.
