Mighty Maestro

Online, interactive program for learning music reading and theory. This program is designed for young, beginning musicians, and there are options for purchasing individual or shared logins. Price is pretty reasonable.

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!

Pattern Press

A discovery-based elementary math program. Concepts are introduced with manipulatives, and students explore the concept to discover patterns. Student and teacher materials are available as reasonably-priced PDF's.

Talkbox.Mom

This program takes a different approach to language learning. Use the everyday phrases in the book to begin speaking the language in your home, and develop fluency over time. Books are available for Spanish, French, and German at reasonable prices, and purchase includes downloadable audio to help with pronunciation. 

Bouncy Maps

This is a great map site with an unusual twist. You can choose a criteria (such as population, religion, or agriculture) and the map will change the sizes of countries, states, or provinces to reflect the data. This is a very useful tool for visual learning, and it's just a fun site to explore!

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.
