Great Home Schooling Internet Resources

When I first started homeschooling Gavin (this was before he started playschool at Kinderland), I was searching high and low for useful internet resources that I could use to help me plan his curriculum.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t aware of these sites back then, but I am now, so if you’re homeschooling (or if you want to supplement your child’s education at home), you might find these useful:

  1. Mr Donn
  2. Pete’s Power Point Station – powerpoint slides teaching a range of subjects.
  3. Usborne Quicklinks – useful links to kids websites that teach a variety of subjects.
  4. NGA Kids – interactive art for kids.
  5. Kids Do Ecology
  6. Kids Know It Network – the free educational movies are great.
  7. TIME for Kids – TIME magazine’s kid’s resource site.
  8. I’ve also started uploading my powerpoint slides onto the BrillKids resource site which you can use to access them.
  9. DLTK’s Growing Together
  10. Magic Keys – Children’s books online
  11. ABC Fast Phonics
  12. BrillKids – Reading, Math
  13. Click N Read – Reading, Spelling
  14. DreamBox Learning – Math
  15. Enchanted Learning
  16. British Council for Kids
  17. HomeSchool World – great parenting resource for homeschooling parents.
  18. Making Learning Fun – website with free printables.
  19. Earling Learning at Home – this site is excellent.  Full of great ideas for home schooling.
  20. Lesson Pathways – you need to sign up but it’s free.  They have stuff for classroom, homeschool and after school.
  21. Starfall – free site for teaching children how to read using “phonics”.
  22. SparkleBox – loads of free printables.

I will update this list with more as I find them.  Feel free to contribute any other useful resources for homeschooling parents that you come across either in the comments section below or by contacting me.

Update: the new list is here – Great Educational Websites
