Games and real life experiences. When I do use a curriculum, I like those that are designed by home school families like Math U See and Ring Around the Phonics.

Brain pop. Reading eggs. And jumpstart. They all come with some worksheets as well as games and videos. The kids love them. We also do board games and outside games like math hopscotch.

I've been wondering about Brain Pop . . . do you think it's worth the money?  It looks great but I'm afraid we wouldn't use it enough.  Maybe we would if I have to pay 100 bucks for it - ha!  Looks like a great supplement for a lot of things we're working on though.

 You can get a 5 day free trial of brain pop to see if you like it.  We did, and I loved it and so did my daughter, but Hubby won't let us spend the money for a membership :(  You can still get a free membership to the teacher resource area that has some good lesson plan ideas....

 I loved brain pop while we had our free trial lol.  Pinterest right now is my favorite resource.  I find tons of awesome ways to help teach, posters, experiments, and hands on projects :)...o and of course a million other websites to find all this stuff AND games to play
