- http://www.worksheetworks.com/english/writing/handwriting.html – create your own handwriting practice sheets.
- MEP Primary maths – this is actually a whole curriculum but we use bits of it as occasional worksheets more than anything else.
- Lego Building Instructions – search by set number, keyword, or brand.
- The Scale of the Universe – an animation showing the size of everything in relation to everything else. We’ve spent hours looking at it, zooming in and out.
- Reading Eggs – games and things to help a child learn to read. There’s a two-week free trial, after which it’s a subscription service.
- Khan Academy – Video lessons on almost everything, apparently, but we have mainly used the videos and exercises for maths.
- Pitara Math Magic – Basic arithmetic
- “Learning Resources” Fraction Tower Cubes
- Five in a Row – we have the first curriculum set only, but one day we might get more. We haven’t bothered filling in the gaps for missing books, because it’s mainly for those days when I don’t feel up to our usual educational stuff.
- Oxford Reading Tree books, though actually you can get a lot of them from libraries.
- Cuisenaire rods – though actually our set was a gift, these are lovely and brilliant.
- School Surplus paper products – huge bundles of heavy A1 and A2 paper, either plain for art or squared for graphs and charts and things. Also a good source of notebooks, exercise books, glue etc.
- The Blue Planet documentary series narrated by David Attenborough, DVD set.
- The Magic School Bus DVDs – these are lovely, though I know some people find the American accents hard to take, much as I do the English accents on Button Moon (especially the vegetables).
