I am always running across products I think are worth sharing. These are either brand new, or just new to me. Or, sometimes, they’re names I neglected to include in previous posts.
So, today, I am sharing links to products I think may be worth checking out for your homeschool. Don’t see anything here? Be sure to click on any of the tags you see at the bottom of this post to keep searching for additional ideas.
Curriculum Quick Picks:
Cover Story: Middle School Writing Curriculum (from the makers of One Year Adventure Novel) is a new program for 6th-8th graders. It looks quite thorough plus a whole lot of fun. I wish this existed when my children were in middle school!
Knowledge Quest isn’t new, but this company releases more and more great titles all the time. Connect with them and you’ll receive great freebies from time to time, as well. KQ’s Map Trek is my personal favorite.
Also not new, but certainly noteworthy, are the Trail Guides to Learning created by Linda Fowler and the beloved Debbie Strayer. These take a unit study approach while covering periods in history. How fun to be able to teach and learn this way!
These resources for gifted learners could be just what your family is looking for. Check out both EPGY courses from Stanford University and CTY Online from Johns Hopkins for a complete list of course offerings for your academically gifted student.
I learn something new every time I flip through one of Jill Dixon’s guides. The Diagnostic Prescriptive Assessment can still be found on the pre-owned market, and many others can be sourced on Amazon as well. These aren’t for everybody, but if you have a child in grade K-5 and thinking about testing options or understanding diagnostics, this book could be worth a look.
Moving Beyond the Page delivers science, social studies and language arts in comprehensive curriculum packages available for students ages 4-14. Samples available online show just how this product will delight a hands-on, creative, or gifted learner.
Never having studied Greek, I cannot comment on the accuracy or effectiveness of this product, but several families have recently recommended the Hey Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek system. If you try it, please leave a COMMENT to let my readers know what you thought!
