AstroLogix

This inexpensive building toy will help students of all ages learn geometry concepts through hands-on play. Purchase a set and use the free building plans on the website or just explore the possibilities!

The Curriculum Corner

This blog comes from two public elementary teachers. It's full of free resources for math and language arts learning. You can download pdf's and powerpoint files including games, learning centers, worksheets and more. It may take a bit of searching if you're looking for something specific, and I found the amount of ads pretty distracting. But there are hundreds of quality, free resources here.

Blick for Educators

Blick Art Supplies has a website for educators with a large collection of art lessons and activities. You can search the list by grade level or art medium. Each lesson has a video or pdf for instruction, and links to purchase necessary materials.

History With Mr. E

World and American history curriculum including inquiry based lessons, primary source activities, interactive notebooks, and more. You can pay a monthly fee for access to an entire year of lessons, or purchase individual materials through Teachers Pay Teachers. Appears to be mostly jr. high and high school level resources.

Grammar in a Nutshell

This inexpensive online grammar program can be used by students of any age. A homeschool subscription gives you access to a student management system, so you can view results and reassign lessons if necessary. Lessons are interactive and include instruction, practice, and assessment. You can get an even better price through Homeschool Buyers Co-op!

Mathigon

An interactive math learning tool for jr. high and high school levels. This free resource guides students in discovering and applying mathmatical concepts through interactive, online content. There is also a story element to the presentation that makes it very engaging. There doesn't appear to be much in the way of practice exercises, so you may want to suppliment if that's important to you. But it's a great way to get students engaged in math learning.

Engage NY

This site contains downloadable materials that are used as math and language arts curriculum in New York public schools. There is a lot of information on standards and classroom pedagogy that can be a bit intimidating to wade through. But it may be worth the effort if you want to stay aligned with standards. Plus, it's a free and complete program.

Turing Tumble

This is just about the coolest toy I've ever seen! Build marble powered computing devices to learn how computers work and explore the logic of programming. The set comes with all the necessary parts and a book of puzzle challenges. It's also very reasonably priced!
