Teaching Textbooks
http://teachingtextbooks.com/
By far my favorite math curriculum.  Start by printing the free online assessment to see what level you should purchase. For grades 3-12. The lessons can be taught using the text but the CD offers an interactive lesson/lecture that grades the lesson for you upon completion.  It’s also great because the student can work at their own pace, pausing when necessary.  So easy (and if you’re like me and don’t remember how to convert fractions, it allows you to follow along too).  Secular.

Timberdoodle.com
http://www.timberdoodle.com/Default.asp
One stop place to buy both secular and non-secular curriculum.  They sell items individually or by-the-grade in bundles.  Excellent place to review resources.  They also carry games, science supplies, and more.
