Homeschooling Resources, part 1

I know there are several sites that specialize in listing homeschooling resources, but they are usually overwhelming in their thoroughness.  I've been compiling this list of bookmarks for the past 4 months and recently went and organized them.  Now that was a job! :)

Since hard work is meant to be shared, here are the links I thought worthy to save for my new homeschooling adventure.  (Most of them are early elementary focused, but some are preschool or older, as my own son will be in first grade this fall.)

First, the fun stuff!  I put these in a "Learning Games" folder, and tagged some of them as well (tags below in parentheses).

Next, I made an overflowing folder called Homeschool Resources to cover everything else, so tagging for subjects became super important.  Keep in mind that I made up tag names as I went so they don't always fit perfectly, but they should be close enough so you will know about what they are about.  However, this blog is getting too long! Stay tuned...
