Raising Little Shoots

This site, from a homeschooling mom in England, has a blog and a Charlotte Mason inspired, multi-age nature curriculum. Includes a guide book with weekly observations, readings and activities; plus a guided journal with copywork. There is some religious content, mostly around Christmas and the solstice and equinox.

Making Music Fun

Music learning resources galore! There are many free printable resources for learning piano, music theory, composers and other musical elements. There are also loads of lesson plans and links. Some products are not free, but reasonably priced, and you can purchase an annual subscription for access to everything.

Wildwood Curriculum

This site offers a free, secular, Charlotte Mason curriculum plan. They are just getting started, so only the first levels (ages 6-9) are available yet. The plan offers suggested books and resources, which you would need to purchase or find at your library. It appears to be a very thorough, authentic application of Charlotte Mason philosophy. 

Building Heroes Academy

This company is just starting out and offering a very interesting concept: all-in-one, family-style, character-based curriculum. There is currently one year of curriculum available and you can pre-order the second year. (Looks like they're planning on at least four years of materials.) The program includes language arts, math, history, and science for elementary ages. *A note about religion/philosophy: The concept of this curriculum struck me as ripe for religious dogmatism, and I saw a few catch phrases that concerned me.

Curiosity Chronicles

This is a brand-new homeschool history curriculum. It looks like a classical approach to history, with the first volume on ancient civilizations out now and the next on medieval history in the works (no target date is mentioned.) It will be similar to the Story of the World books by Susan Wise Bauer, but intentionally secular. I know it will be eagerly awaited by many homeschoolers!
