Free Curriculum-based Instruction Online

Myrnie of I Wonder Woman directed me to Head of the Class, a curriculum-based instruction with videos, multimedia, applications, and worksheets for free. I tried the Kindergarten level samples and liked it. The programs are described as supplements to education, so it won't be an all inclusive learning resource. Currently they offer content for preschool - fourth grade with grades five through eight coming soon. There are no downloads, but there is a required free sign-up for a password.

I've been using this off and on for my two younger boys. I like it overall. Sometimes it seems to get stuck on one subject and makes them do lots of math or spelling or something, but it's fun and easy (for me). ;-)
