Wieser Educational

This company carries textbooks, workbooks and ebooks in all major subjects. They are advertised as "resources for struggling learners" so many of the books are high interest/low reading level. There are some useful life skills resources as well. Prices are pretty reasonable.

YouCubed

This is a wonderful website from Stanford Math Education Professor Jo Boaler. The site has many inspiring articles and videos about a new approach to math teaching and learning. There is a free online course to help students think differently about math. She is also in the process of writing a K-8 math curriculum that follows her revolutionary approach. You can try out many of the tasks and activities on the website. The curriculum looks great, but the best thing about this resource is the potential for both students and parents/teachers to develop a great mindset about math.

Doing Good Together

This non-profit organization helps families find ways to practice kindness and community service. There are learning resources, helpful articles and blog posts, suggestion for projects, book lists, and much more. The world can always use more families who practice intentional kindness!

Kiddom

Kiddom is a combination planning system and content library. A free teacher account lets you set up unlimited classes and students. You can add assignments from the library of online content from sites such as Khan Academy, TedEd, cK-12 and more. You can also add assignments from other resources or curriculum. Standards (from an extensive provided list, or your own custom-made) can be attached to assignments for tracking progress. A flexible grading system includes an easy rubric tool. This could be an extremely useful tool for both planning and assessing your child's learning.

Homeschool Curriculum

This help site is unusual, because it's written by a homeschooling dad. There's a blog with lots of great information on curriculum and general homeschool help articles. There are also reading lists, links to free worksheets, and user reviews of specific curriculum. He also provides a really expensive online course to help you get started homeschooling.
