No-Cost Online Math Curriculum & More!

Age Range: 4-11 (Grades PreK-6, however, only PreK-2 is currently available. Content for 4-6, will be released later in 2010.)

I’ve been hearing lots of buzz on the launch of the “Head of the Class” website that provides “free resources for math, reading, writing, spelling, science, history, geography, Spanish, art, music, and more!”
This free online, curriculum-based instruction is delivered through multimedia including:

  • Videos presenting how-to activities
  • Applications that teach math, phonics and spelling
  • Online Coaching by the site’s mascots, Happy & Max
  • Dynamic Worksheets – the content changes each time they’re opened
  • Assessment Tests that measure progress and automatically adjusts the curriculum to the student’s level

When you get to this ad-supported site, use the menu on the left to view the course outline for grades PreK-2. You can also see samples pages of the course content. To access all of the free content you must create a login account.
Use the menu at the top of the page to view “Getting Started” that explains (through online videos) how this site works.

Oppose Federal Funding for Early Education Programs

The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote today or tomorrow on H.R. 3221, the “Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2009.”

This bill should be opposed for the following reasons:

  • It will create federal funding for state early education programs for children from birth to 5 years old, allowing government officials to make parenting decisions for children in these programs;
  • States may use the funds to create mandatory early education programs, since the bill does not require that the programs be voluntary;
  • The states will have an economic incentive to increase the number of children in early education programs, and may pressure families to enroll their children in these programs;
  • It will greatly increase the size and scope of the federal government’s involvement in education.

You can read HSLDA’s detailed legislative analysis of H.R. 3221 here:


Please call your U.S. Representative with the following message. There is no need to identify yourself as a homeschooler:

“Please oppose H.R. 3221.  This bill will create new federal funding for early education programs in the states.  The federal government should not expand its involvement in early education programs. Parents, not federal or state officials, should decide what is appropriate for their children.”

You may find the contact information for your U.S. Representative by using HSLDA’s Legislative Toolbox:

The Top 100 Educational Websites of 2009 product testers have selected the Top 100 Educational Websites of 2009. They asked 7,000 Product Testers to send a list of the educational sites that they like the best and use the most often. The three sites mentioned most often were:

The Top Sites for 2009


Note: Normally we would not include a commercial site on this list. However, so many people nominated Time4Learning, it seemed unfair to leave them off the list.

  • Click on a site name
  • Explore their site for awhile
  • If you love it, add it to your bookmarks
  • Then use the back button to come back to the main Top 100 list

All of these sites are safe, proven and used by thousands of parents just like you. So grab a cup of coffee, put your kids on your lap, and have fun exploring these wonderful sites.
