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.

History With Mr. E

World and American history curriculum including inquiry based lessons, primary source activities, interactive notebooks, and more. You can pay a monthly fee for access to an entire year of lessons, or purchase individual materials through Teachers Pay Teachers. Appears to be mostly jr. high and high school level resources.

Grammar in a Nutshell

This inexpensive online grammar program can be used by students of any age. A homeschool subscription gives you access to a student management system, so you can view results and reassign lessons if necessary. Lessons are interactive and include instruction, practice, and assessment. You can get an even better price through Homeschool Buyers Co-op!

Engage NY

This site contains downloadable materials that are used as math and language arts curriculum in New York public schools. There is a lot of information on standards and classroom pedagogy that can be a bit intimidating to wade through. But it may be worth the effort if you want to stay aligned with standards. Plus, it's a free and complete program.

Turing Tumble

This is just about the coolest toy I've ever seen! Build marble powered computing devices to learn how computers work and explore the logic of programming. The set comes with all the necessary parts and a book of puzzle challenges. It's also very reasonably priced!

Math Goodies

This site has quite a few free math learning resources. There are interactive lessons, printable worksheets and a worksheet generator, a few simple flash-based games, some webquests on fun math topics, and more. It's a no-frills website, that's not terribly interesting visually, but there are plenty of useful tools to explore.

Five Senses Literature Lessons

These curriculum guides are written by an Occupational Therapist and designed to be effective for children with learning differences or sensory issues (though they can certainly work with neurotypical children as well.) The lessons center on children's books and cover cover all major subject areas. They include lots of hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities. Currently, there are materials available for preschool and early elementary ages, and more guides are coming to cover higher level learning (up to about middle school level.)
