Web-based Curriculum


Kiddom is a combination planning system and content library. A free teacher account lets you set up unlimited classes and students. You can add assignments from the library of online content from sites such as Khan Academy, TedEd, cK-12 and more. You can also add assignments from other resources or curriculum. Standards (from an extensive provided list, or your own custom-made) can be attached to assignments for tracking progress. A flexible grading system includes an easy rubric tool. This could be an extremely useful tool for both planning and assessing your child's learning.

Masterpiece Society

Self-paced online courses including hands-on art, plus art history and appreciation. These courses are very reasonably priced and designed for multiple ages and even parent participation. (*Note on religious content: one course is designed for girls and moms and has a bible study component with it. I also noticed some comments in course descriptions about boys using other colors if they don't like pink. If you are concerned about gender exclusivity, you'll want to look closely at the materials and be prepared for some discussion.)


An online math program for use on phone, tablet or computer. Designed to be used in short sessions to practice essential concepts and skills. Depending on your approach to math, it may be a complete program or a supplement. 

Chess Kid

This is a great website where kids can watch videos, play against the computer, and solve puzzles to learn chess or improve their skills. The free membership has quite a few great features, and a paid upgrade gives you even more. There's even a curriculum for use in a co-op class or team situation.

Math Live

This site has a collection of interactive lessons on math concepts for upper elementary and jr. high levels. There are teacher notes and assessment activities available in pdf form. The interface is a little awkward, so finding the lesson you want takes a little work. But the lessons are engaging and it's all free!

Learn Bop

This is an online, personalized math curriculum for grades 3 through 12. You choose your child's learning path by grade level or subject matter, and the adaptive system finds any gaps in knowledge and helps students learn new concepts. Looks to be a very comprehensive and affordable math program.
