online-educational-resources imageOnce again this week, we have made great use of free educational sites from around the web.  Below are the links to some awesome sites we have been using for some of our homeschooling lessons.

Pets, Animals, and Aquariums – information and resources  http://animal-world.com/index.html

A week of groceries from around the world in photos  http://realitypod.com/2013/05/a-week-of-groceries-in-different-countries-pictures/

French, Italian, German, and Spanish interactive dictionary with audio  http://www.chillola.com/index.html/

Editable handwriting practice worksheets  http://www.handwritingpractice.net/handwriting/index.html

This site has several elementary subjects (My Z loves it for math and stories)  http://www.netrover.com/~kingskid/

Several articles of interest from the Native Speakers Academy  including, 22 Alternatives to Punishment,  Moving to the Rhythm ‘Can Help Language Skills,  and Police State Alert: High Schools Now Using Palm Scanners   http://us5.campaign-archive1.com/?u=8fb495371ca5be23e1601ecc0&id=e1f6607b16&e=3bba501884

And looking ahead to the rest of the month, these resources will be great!

For Columbus Day (Oct. 14) we will be working on this – free  lapbooking and notebooking download  http://marinecorpsnomads.com/2011/08/christopher-columbus-lapbook-and-notebook-study.html

This site is going to be a fantastic resource for Halloween printables  http://www.myhusbandateallmyicecream.com/2013/09/over-450-halloween-printables/

Recently I was asked how I keep track of the links I find.  I make a draft in my e-mail account and title it “Math” or whatever is appropriate. I add the link and write a brief description about the site.   When the page fills up, I  mail it to myself and move it to a file that matches the topic.

I hope you find these links both useful and fun.  We did!

Free Educational Finds of the Week

online-educational-resources image

Once again this week I am overwhelmed with both the quantity and quality of free educational web sites available.  I enjoying finding and exploring these sites with my kids.  I’m thankful for the homeschooling blog and social media communities for their time and efforts to share resources that add much to our homeschooling studies.

Below are a few of the links to free learning sites that I saved to my teaching resource files this week.

Brain teasers, language arts, and math printables  http://www.wuzzlesandpuzzles.com/

126 interactive history games  http://playinghistory.org/items

Bible map and timeline printables  http://www.biblestudy.org/maps/main.html

Human anatomy interactive (This was bit difficult to catch on to, as they do not have written instructions, but once I got the hang of it, I thought the technology was amazing and will be a great teaching resource)  http://www.zygotebody.com/

Music games from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra  http://www.dsokids.com/games.aspx

It’s my hope that these links will be a little something extra that you can add to your homeschooling studies, and that you and your kids will not just learn from them, but have some fun as well.
