Blogger Friend School Assignment #110

Intro: Computers Help People Help People(Marketing credit: IBM)

There are many ways computers help us.  It is a wonderful way to stay in touch with family far away, “meet” other christian women around the globe, and it can be such a blessing with homeschooling.


Share some of your favorite homeschooling sites.  The only “rule” for this assignment is that you have to list at least one “free” site.  Many homeschooling families have made the choice to live on very little income to do what they believe is best for their children and I want everyone to be able to benefit from this assignment.  If you have other sites that are “paid” sites, feel free to include these also as it might be something someone would really appreciate.  If you feel led, share your curriculum choices with us.  I always love to learn what is out there that I don’t already know about.  Please make sure to include links to the sites you share.

Wow, where to begin!  I use so many different sites...I will list some free ones first and then others:

www.paperbackswap.com  -  This is a great site that you can sign up for free and it is a paperback book exchange.  I have found lots of great books here.  If you do sign up for this please put down my email address as a referal.  I would appreciate it.

www.homeschoolshare.com  -Great site for free lapbooks and resources

http://www.dltk-kids.com/    DLTK's Crafts for Kids features a variety of fun, printable children's crafts, coloring pages and more including projects for holidays, educational themes and some of our children's favorite cartoon characters.  - (I copied this description from their site.)

http://learningpage.com   Great site for worksheets on basic themes and complete curriculum for some unit studies

http://www.donnayoung.org    This is a great site for forms and charts.

Other sites that I love but have a cost or sell a product are:

www.handsofachild.com   This is one of my favorite sites.  I own a lot of thier lapbooks (You can see pics of a completed one below).  They offer one free lapbook per quarter.

http://www.currclick.com  They sell "ebook" curriculum and each week they offer a free download

 http://notebookingpages.com  I love notbooking pages and she creates some really nice ones.

Of course two favorites that have a memebership but well worth it are :

www.enchantedlearning.com and www.edhelper.com

I could go on but there are others listed on the right side of my blog that you can click on as well.

For pictures here is the Explorer Lapbook that Anastasia just finished.  It is from Hands of a Child.

For this lapbook we had a lot of activities so we made a double lapbook with 2 file folders.  The front cover, above, Anastasia designed in publisher from clip art and printed out.




Memory Verse: Ephesians 4:29

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
