The Measured Mom

This blog comes from a former teacher, now stay-at-home mom. She concentrates mostly on pre-reading and literacy topics, but also has some math and science ideas. There are a lot of free printables, and a shop with reasonably priced materials.

Spell By Color

An inexpensive, rule-based spelling program. You can get the first year for free and find out if it works for you family. It's not a very exciting-looking resource, but the logical, simple approach could work very well for many kids.

Go Phonics

This complete phonics and reading curriculum uses the multi-sensory, Orton-Gillingham approach, which is often effective for students with dyslexia. The packages available are pricey, but would cover about 3 years of learning. You can also purchase items separately if you'd like to try it out before investing in the complete package.

This company provides learning songs for pre-school and primary levels, with printable resources to accompany them. The songs are available on CD's, DVD's and online videos. They cover phonics, reading, math, and other early learning concepts. Great for kinetic and auditory learners.

3 Clicks Spelling

This is a great, free, online tool for finding the spelling of most words. You choose the beginning and ending sounds and number of syllables, and the system gives you possible word matches. The purpose is to allow students who struggle with spelling to use words in writing they may otherwise avoid (since they're difficult to spell.) There are also a few links for activities and games to help with spelling.
