We are fans of all things online/computer based, lol.
We used Starfall for early education
What are we using now?
Time4Learning (have used for Pre-K through 7th grade so far) for language arts, math, science and social studies.
Vocabulary and Spelling City for vocabulary, spelling and handwriting (I am able to create and print handwriting worksheets using our word lists).
Learning Games for Kids for educational games in many subjects; all of our core subjects, plus art games, health games, keyboarding games and more. Both boys (ages 12 and 7) use this site every day.
We have some how-to books for art (how to draw, how to paint, crafts to make with household items, etc) and we have a couple of really good science experiments book. We also use the Internet for tons of additional activities. The boys watch educational videos and google things ALL the time.
They are both active in Scouts and they play soccer in both the spring and fall seasons.
They both read a lot, we find recommendations of good books from our library as well as from online sites like Barnes and Noble (we all have eReaders, so often BN will recommend books based on what we have already read. That's nice, lol)
I think that's it. I can come back and update as I think of things.
