Picking favorites has always been difficult for me, especially when I'm asked to make a list of my Top Three or even Top Ten things in any category. How do I narrow it down when there are so many things I like? So when I was asked to come up with a list of my Five Favorite Homeschool Resources, I decided I'd better go with five broad types of resources other than curriculum that are must-haves for our homeschool. I didn't list coffee, although I wanted to. 

Computer and Internet Access (and a printer)
It's hard to imagine homeschooling without a computer and internet these days, isn't it? Even though we don't do a lot of online curriculum, we use our devices and the internet all day every day. We do some school using online resources like No-Nonsense Algebra and Obviously when we need to do research, the internet is invaluable. We use tools like Google Documents almost every day. We even keep in touch when we are not schooling in the same place (for instance, I'm at work and the student is at home) by messaging online!

Planning and Organization Tools
Organization skills do not come naturally to me, so resources that help me get the job done efficiently are greatly appreciated. The Google calendar helps me keep track of where everyone needs to be and at what time; and I can access it anywhere. And I do my grading and record-keeping on the cloud, using Homeschool Tracker Online

This website has been my best friend for keeping track of assignments and due dates, grades, resource lists, credit hours, lesson plans, course descriptions, and more for at least ten years and I'd be lost without it.

I don't homeschool, but I do supplement my kids' learning at home and I absolutely agree that internet/computer access is such a great help. Information literally at your fingertips.
