Web-based Curriculum

Rocket Langauges

Language learning program with audio lessons, reinforcement activities, voice recognition, and grammar and culture lessons. This looks like a very thorough and affordable curriculum. The only thing lacking (compared to most other online language programs) is the photos, so visual learners may have difficulty.

Building Heroes Academy

This company is just starting out and offering a very interesting concept: all-in-one, family-style, character-based curriculum. There is currently one year of curriculum available and you can pre-order the second year. (Looks like they're planning on at least four years of materials.) The program includes language arts, math, history, and science for elementary ages. *A note about religion/philosophy: The concept of this curriculum struck me as ripe for religious dogmatism, and I saw a few catch phrases that concerned me.

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.

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!

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. 

Amazon Inspire

A collection of educational resources from Amazon. Includes downloadable pdf's, videos, and links to various online resources. Everything appears to be free, so far. The program is in Beta testing, and there will be a feature to allow you to share your own resources eventually.

CSJumpstartr

Project based computer science learning using the Scratch program from MIT. Students use templates to create slideshows, quizzes and games in Scratch. The templates include step-by-step help, printable worksheets, and explanations of the code. The projects are content-based, so they provide a way for kids to show what they're learning in other subjects. Reasonably priced, and a great tool for homeschoolers!
