Free Homeschool Management Software

LearnBoost is offering free management software tailored for homeschoolers. The program  features a fully integrated grade book and software to create and share lesson plans, track student progress, analyze learning trends, add narrative reports, and so much more. It is integrated with Google Apps and is available in 15 languages, soon to be 70.

I’ve looked around the site and it is intriguing. The first thing I did was make sure it is truly free. It appears it really is. They also offer a free demo.

Here is what the site says about the resource being free:

LearnBoost is 100% free. You get all the wonderful features in all of our modules: grade book, attendance, lesson plan, calendar, and more. You have everything to gain by signing up because LearnBoost is free and amazing.

LearnBoost operates on a “freemium” business model. This means that while the majority of our users can access our software for free, future iterations of the product will allow schools to elect for premium administrative features, customization, and services.

We love education and we know school budgets are always tight. In the future, our optional premium services won’t break the bank either!

Fun Free Game Site

I found a fun site today called ABCya! The creator is a public school teacher. Her games are geared for children in K-5th grade.

Here is what the site says:

ABCya.com was designed with a focus on parents, teachers and children.  The services and features on the website reflect our focus.

The navigation features of the website are simple and straightforward.  The homepage provides links to six main grade level categories: Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, Third Grade, Fourth Grade and Fifth Grade.  The grade level categories are broken down by content categories: Letters, Numbers, More (shapes, social studies, art) and Holidays.

With the guidance of an adult, children will be able to successfully navigate the website..

Grade level lessons incorporate areas such as math and language arts while introducing basic computer skills. Many of the kindergarten and first grade activities are equipped with sound to enhance understanding. Fun children’s Holiday activities are available in grade level sections!
