Grammar Active

This hands-on grammar curriculum includes CD ROMs, teacher manuals, and games for learning grammar in elementary through high school levels. Although designed for classroom settings, it can be used in homeschooling, and you can get a good discount through Homeschool Buyer's Co-op.

Certell

History and Social Studies curriculum available for free from a non-profit, bipartisan organization. There are currently courses in American History, Government, and Economics, with World History in the works. Courses include e-books with embedded audio and video, plus course files (for planning and assessment) that can be used with a learning management system, Google Classroom, or downloaded for offline use. Looks like a great option for high school level students.

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.

Homeschool Entrepreneur

This site has lots of resources for family and teen business owners. If you want to make your family business a learning tool, or help a teen to start a business, this is the place to go. There are links to lessons on business and entrepreneurship, blog posts and articles, and lists of helpful software and books. There is some religious content, but many useful tools for secular families as well.

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. 

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.

Learning Dynamics

This is a complete phonics program with lesson book, over 50 progressive readers, teaching songs, and other activities. There are no samples available, so it's hard to tell how advanced it gets. Looks like a pretty comprehensive program at a fairly reasonable price. 

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.)
