Curriculum Materials

42 Electronics

Curriculum and parts kit for learning electronics, robotics, and Python programming. There is one level available now, and 3 more coming out over the next year. Price is pretty reasonable, and the writers appear to be a homeschooling family!

Fat Dogs and Coughing Horses

This oddly named resource comes from the Purdue Univ. College of Veterinary Science. It's a unit study curriculum exploring animal and human health topics. The lesson plans are written for 3rd and 9th grade classrooms, but can be adapted for home use and different level learners. Some lessons require some equipment that may be tough to find, but there are activity books, internet links, and lots of great hands-on ideas. 

Summit Writing Academy

Online writing instruction, including reading and vocabulary elements. You can choose from two levels of membership (one includes teacher grading, the other provides rubrics for parent use.) Or you can purchase 6-week live classes. The price is a bit high, but membership is billed monthly, so trying it out wouldn't be too much of an investment. 

Wild Math

This curriculum for early elementary teaches math concepts through outdoor activities. The curriculum guides are very reasonably priced, and written by a homeschooling mom!

Verbling

This company provides one-on-one online tutoring in many languages. You choose from a list of tutors with different hourly rates and availability and schedule sessions through their platform. The hourly rates vary quite a bit, but probably average around $20-25. The program is designed for adult learners, but could certainly be used by younger students with supervision.

Happy Atoms

This resource includes physical models and a tablet app for exploring the world of atoms and molecules. Students build with the model atoms and use the app to learn about what they have built. Reasonably priced, and looks like a great tool for hands-on learning.

Candy 4Way Phonics

These are free phonics learning materials in PDF format. There are flashcards, lesson plans, beginning reader stories, and lots more. The visuals are pretty simple, but effective; and the program looks pretty robust. (A note about religious content: the introductory material for parents is a bit heavy-handed in criticizing current teaching methods. There are also some references to God. A quick look at some of the stories and other resources didn't reveal any blatant religious references, but be cautious if you're looking for secular materials.)
