Primary (K-2)

Legends of Learning

Online, super-hero themed science games for elementary and middle school levels. You can play for free (with ads and limited content) or pay a reasonable subscription fee for membership. (Unfortunately, you have to be affiliated with a public school to get all of the features for free! Perhaps some contact from the homeschool community would change the company policy!)

 

Meister Cody

This online math program is designed to help students with math problems (including dyscalculia.) A subscription includes 3 students and the app can be downloaded to multiple devices. Students spend about 30 minutes a day exploring a fantasy story and doing practice exercises. Price is very reasonable if you get the discount from Homeschool Buyer's Co-op.

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.
