Adding:

 

National Council for Geographic Education Geography Club (years 1-3) - for elementary students  

 

Knowledge Quest Globalmania: Master World Geography in 7 months or less  - ebook

 

Seterra  -  a fun map quiz game

 

Megamaps - Giant printable world maps

 

Ambleside Online's Geography 1-6 schedule

 

And I think that's about it for geography... unless I find another resource suggestion I've missed, which has clearly happened a few times so far :tongue_smilie: 

 

A HUGE thank you to cintinative, zookeeper, and Hunter for your help.  These are really great resources.  Our geography section now looks pretty awesome now thanks to your help :)

mango languages through your local library (ours offers it) http://mangolanguages.com/index.html


This is one of those resources that capital city libraries are increasingly offering. I have heard it is tough in Texas to get to the capital to get a free capital city library card. But in smaller states with better public transportation, most people can take a day trip to their capital city by bus or train.

As capital city libraries are offering more online resources, they are requiring more frequent checks of state residence. Often every year. But for many families a once yearly day trip is worth the online access.

Mango has Latin, Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew, and Arabic, as well as all the more common modern languages. The classical languages I have tried are immersion type courses and work best as a supplement to a traditional grammar.

The courses are awesome for pronunciation practice, as you can click on a single word over and over and over, while chanting it at the same time. One of my neighbors, was like, "What the HELL are you doing in there?!" My explanation just seems to confuse her even more. She just stared at me.

Shiny, I'm glad some of that helped. I like teaching geography more than history, and I teach it a lot more explicitly than history. There is more that I trust to be "real" to grab onto. History is just literature to me, and I just look for decent authors, not truth.

I am looking for some good first aid/safety/emergency resources (we're required to cover it every year and so I try to mix it up).

 

Here are some I am aware of (but have not used all of):

 

http://www.redcross....on-for-children  really well done website with videos about first aid for kids

https://www.stjohnsa...aid-fact-sheets    first aid fact sheets

http://clicktosave.com.au/log-in/      Free first aid training

http://www.weather.gov/owlie/         National Weather Service (U.S.) kids' site

 

I would love to see more U.S. based safety/first aid resources for younger kids (mine are 9 and 11) if you are aware of any. Three of the above are from outside the U.S. so emergency numbers are different, etc.  =)

 

 

Here are a couple of wilderness based first aid education resources I just found for adults or older kids:

http://www.scouting....pdf/680-008.pdf

For people not in the USA: does your country have discounted internet programs, low-cost computers, etc. for families in need?  I'd like to expand the "Discounted Internet" section to be a bit more global.

English speaking country.... but not sure you have this.... In at least some provinces in Canada homeschoolers can get free computers through "Computers for Schools".

Classes Without Books

Homeschool courses for middle school to high school in all subjects and even a few electives. Can't attest for the quality of all the courses but I like some of these for outlines. The link is a list of all their courses and textbooks. Some courses use the CK12 textbooks (a previously listed free curriculum) but others use their own written texts.

This site doesn't have textbooks like Classes Without Books but the links do correspond to some quality material put out by Khan Academy, school teachers, government agencies and more. Click the subject you'd like to view at the top menu. Not complicated at all.

I am linking to a single worksheet, but this worksheet is a workhorse. It is a chart showing a basic essay template for history, literature, and a science lab, showing the comparisons between them. I have been looking and looking and looking for this and couldn't find it again. Happy day for me.

Time Magazine A+ Papers

http://www.timeforki...r/a-plus-papers

 

Graphiic organizers and example papers for 8 types of writing: biography, book report, compare and contrast, how-to, literary essay, news story, personal narrative, persuasive essay

 

These lessons are probably aimed at about a rigorous 5th grade level. I like them for remedial 9th and 10th grade level, though, even if the examples might seem a bit childish. Charlotte's Web is used for the book report and the literary essay. Seeing the same familiar book used for both types of writing and to be able to compare them is super helpful.

 

Generic templates are provided, but the writing doesn't require topic sentences and is not as robotic as most similar curricula. Also these lessons are fairly quick to teach.

 

I was recently asked what was comparable to American School's GENERAL diploma courses Writing 1 and Writing 2, and have been thinking about that and searching around. These provide more instruction, but are comparable in level of rigor and time spent on task.

 

These can be followed up with any typical community college remedial English for grades 11 and 12, having a student ready to tackle community college Comp and Grammar 101 right on time.

 

Sometimes free stuff is better than the pricey stuff. This is one of them. I like these.

Getting caught up adding your suggestions (thank you for your patience).

 

Plus...

 

WatchKnowLearn - educational videos organized by topic

 

Project Based Engineering - not really a curriculum, just some fun projects to whet a kid's appetite.

 

Games for Dyscalculic Learners - Ronit Bird's books are the go-to resources for kids with math learning disabilities.  She teaches through the use of manipulatives and games. Her books are expensive, but she shares over a dozen games for free on her site, as well as 35 videos on youtube.

 

The Phonics Page - complete, video-based phonics lessons.   <--- how did I not add this site with the first version of this list?  I've known about it for years, and it's such a great resource!

OK, having Journeys in Film in the Film Appreciation Category is bugging me.  It's really about teaching history, science, etc. with these films, and not so much studying them as a specific art form.  I'm toying with the idea of having a "Teaching with Videos" section and lumping the broader, cross-curricular resources there.  I'd still keep the videos that are specific to one discipline in the appropriate category.  I'm more thinking of what to do with JIF and stuff like that that don't fit neatly into one category.  Decisions, decisions...

Lately, I list some resources multiple times in different categories. In my online storage which is limited and almost full, I still triple saved a few documents. With my memory loss I cannot count on remembering what I have and where it is.

If not wanting to store multiple documents, you can also leave a note that lists other sources to look for elsewhere.

And another thing I do on online storage of Ebooks, is that if a document needs a password to open, I sometimes put it in a folder named with the password. It is easier than adding a note.

I just finished a couple of adds and looked at the list and I started to get emotional.  I can't believe how far it's come, and so much of that is due to y'all and your ninja-level search skills.  Do you have any idea how many people we've been able to bless?  You are awesome.  I thank you.   :grouphug:  Let's keep it going.

Smithsonian Education: Arts & Design -- many lesson plans for K-12.  I'll add it eventually to the big list.  I might be overdoing it on the art section, but it's my favorite.
