Sex Ed Rescue

This is a very helpful site with resources for talking kids about sex. There are lists of books, videos, and online resources. The blog has great ideas for spotting and taking advantage of teachable moments. And you can sign up for a weekly newsletter to give you regular encouragement. 

Lavender's Blue Homeschool

This site is all about Waldorf-inspired homeschooling. There is a blog with great ideas, or you can purchase a complete curriculum package for Kindergarten, First, or Second grade. (Looks like more grades are in development.) Packages are accessible online, or can be printed and include hundreds of pages of lessons, plus MP3 files. There is also an online community that requires paid membership, which you get free with purchase of curriculum.

Teaching Resources

This website comes from Laura Candler, a public school teacher whose name you may recognize if you shop at Teachers Pay Teachers. The site has lots of free printables, articles and ideas. You can subscribe to the blog and get extra freebies. She has some great information and ideas on multiple intellegences and growth mindset.

YouCubed

This is a wonderful website from Stanford Math Education Professor Jo Boaler. The site has many inspiring articles and videos about a new approach to math teaching and learning. There is a free online course to help students think differently about math. She is also in the process of writing a K-8 math curriculum that follows her revolutionary approach. You can try out many of the tasks and activities on the website. The curriculum looks great, but the best thing about this resource is the potential for both students and parents/teachers to develop a great mindset about math.
