Language Arts

Funnix

This company provides programs for beginning reading and math learning. Components include interactive computer lessons (delivered on a DVD) and workbooks (printable from the DVD, or you can order printed versions.) The price is quite reasonable.

William and Mary Language Arts

These curriculum materials, from the Center for Gifted Education at William and Mary college, focus on developing various communication skills through literary analysis. There are literature units exploring multiple works around a theme, as well as individual novel studies. The materials are a bit pricey, but very thorough and of good quality.

Mrs. Wordsmith

This company provides books and activities for developing vocabulary. The fun illustrations spark creative thinking and help with recall. Materials are designed for preschool through jr. high level learners.

Rooted in Language

This company provides instructional materials and educator training for Language Arts at all levels. The curriculum materials are pdf's with lessons, printable hands-on activities and games. All the resources are very affordable. The online teacher training could be very useful if you have a child struggling with reading or writing.

Reading IQ

This reading app provides access to thousands of books for preschool through 6th grade level learners. The subscription (for a pretty reasonable monthly price) allows for progress tracking for 3 students, and the app will make recommendations based on reading level and interests. 

Grammar Active

This hands-on grammar curriculum includes CD ROMs, teacher manuals, and games for learning grammar in elementary through high school levels. Although designed for classroom settings, it can be used in homeschooling, and you can get a good discount through Homeschool Buyer's Co-op.

myON

A digital library featuring literacy, assessment, and tracking tools. Parents can assign books and writing or literacy tasks and see reports on progress. It appears to only be available to homeschoolers through Homeschool Buyers Co-op, but the price is very reasonable!

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.
