Homeschooling Resources, part 2

As I mentioned at the end of my last blog post, this list is extensive (133 items, to be exact) so I decided to split it from the learning games.  Several of the pages listed below are from the same websites, just different parts, so please forgive the seeming repetition.  Some of the sites below may want you to buy something, but since I started out looking for free ways to learn, most of them ARE free.

These are not in order by subject at all.  They are a picture-in-links of where my journey has taken me.  If you pay attention, you can see the little rabbit trails I took when researching.  The only exception is that I moved the top 2 links to their current postion, since that is where my choices led me to rest my homeschooling heart.

If you are short on time and want to see the sites I plan on visiting regularly this year, look for the asterisks, from 1-3 *.
