A Website review by Delana H.
Room 108 http://www.netrover.com/~kingskid/108.html is a great resource for home educators (and those looking to supplement their children’s schooling). It is especially designed for kids in primary grades. It includes games for many subject areas, as well as worksheets and other resources. They do offer more things for a subscription price, but so much is available for free. Here are some specific links to subjects and resources that Room 108 provides:
This link connects you to animated story books, sight word stories (based on Dolch sight words), stories with morals, the animated children’s Bible and more. I have not read through the individual stories yet, so please read them before introducing them to your kids (to make sure they are appropriate for your child).
This site boasts free online lessons, play along piano music, note naming worksheets, flashcards, ABC Karaoke, Christian praise songs, sheet music, and more.
