Susan Barton has an awesome newsletter called Bright Solutions for Dyslexia - very good to check into: https:// www.dys-add.com/
Because of the failures people are experiencing with 'Zoom' schooling, I've been getting e-mails asking about curriculum, so I've looked into a few (yes, I've mentioned a couple of these before) - let me know if you've found others:
high school college courses: https://www.asuprepdigital.org/
My Tech High School: https://www.mytechhigh.com/ - ages 5-18
I just received another great e-mail:
While I am no longer in the classroom, I am still passionate about equitable education and learning opportunities for children, specifically in the STEM fields of study, and that's how I came across your work. I just assembled a list of STEM resources for kids with special needs, https://www.bitira.com/crypto-stem-for-kids-with-special-needs/; it offers a range of options and approaches for parents and educators alike. I think it could be a useful addition to the resources you already share: http://www.musicartandenglish.com/homeschool-resources.html !
I have been looking into homeschool curriculum and found a couple awesome programs. I've actually used this (3rd, 4th, 5th grade) program while tutoring and this is the best I've ever seen:
Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool: A complete, free online Christian homeschool curriculum https://allinonehomeschool.com/
I found another (I haven't personally used) that looks good. It does cost; however, I see that they have easy payment plans: Abeka Homeschool Curriculum: https://www.abeka.com/HomeSchool
Pigly is a free online personal finance guide offering over 100 financial calculators.
We recently published an in-depth guide to help teach kids the importance of building an emergency savings plan.
With most schools going virtual for the foreseeable future, families are looking for ways to keep their children educationally engaged.
Our experts created a guide that gives parents the appropriate resources to teach their children to become financially literate adults. We also provide benchmarks, games and other educational resources for different grade levels.
To spread this information to those who could benefit from using it, please add our guide:
We created a resource to help parents of children with disabilities who are considering life insurance. We cover how much life insurance one should have, how to financially plan for future expenses based on a child's needs and resources for families looking for help.
I have been so busy lately, I can't seem to find time to update this site on a regular basis. Be patient, maybe this winter I can add a lot more info.
In the mean time, I did receive a few e-mails:
From Tim at Fiscal Tiger: https:// www.fiscaltiger.com/cost-to-homeschool-your-child/
From Derek about books:
The reading resources on your Everything you need to Know about Music, Art, and English! page are incredibly helpful! Your page inspired me to assemble my own reading resource for parents and children.
Over the last few months I've been building the 50 Best Children's Books of All Time list. The list includes the most quintessence children's reading classics, both new and old.
The best children's book list includes:
Reading throughout childhood is more important than many parents realize. Here are a few surprising stats from major studies around the US.
Suffice to say, I don't think my best children's books of all time list is going to change the world, but if it can just help one child or family it will have been worth creating it.
I hope it's a resource you find helpful and would consider adding it to share with your community.
Thanks so much for your time and for all you do for our children.
