The Head of The Class is a wonderful site. I just found it lastnight and it is so great. You can set up each child a student account which makes it even better so nothing gets confused. I also noticed if you have two kids in same grade their work is not the same so that was neat. In a sense it reminds me of the online K-12, only free, more parental control and much more fun in my kids opinon. I have yet to find answer keys on anything but I haven't needed them so maybe when I do I will find them lol. The following is a copy of their website

Head of the Class provides preschool through eighth grade parents, learners, and teachers with free access to curriculum-based content. Organized by grade-level, you will find instruction, activities, and multimedia on reading, math, spelling, writing, art, history, music, geography, science, Spanish, and more.
At Head of the Class, we believe education should be free. Our team’s goal is to make education readily available to everyone. Our software works on PCs, Macs, as well as Smartboards with no downloads or special software required.
Head of the Class was created for all learners. Advanced learners have the opportunity to move ahead one or more grade levels; learners who have struggled in the past, can build a strong foundation for success; other learners can master fundamentals that take them to the Head of the Class.
Within Head of the Class you will find:
  • Thousands of pages of curriculum-based instruction organized by grade level
  • Hundreds of videos presenting a variety of art activities
  • Thousands of dynamic worksheets, the contents of which change each time you open them
  • Hundreds of applications that teach math, phonics, spelling, and much more
  • Online coaching and encouragement from Happy & Max
  • Hundreds of multimedia presentations on science, geography, history, and more
  • Baseline test instruments you can use to measure your learner’s progress
  • … and much more!

Wishing you success with learning, The Head of the Class Team

I have also found plenty of reviews online and am reading only good things. I cannot beieve something like this is out there and I never knew. I truly wish I had found this forever ago.

Lowe's Build and Grow

At Lowe's yesterday the kids made a Mothers Day vase. It was really cute. The front of the heart is a chalkboard. It amazes me how cute these projects are years ago when we started this they were not up to the quality they are now.
