Free Homeschooling is possible! Welcome to my new series. I will try to post this weekly.
The truth is that homeschooling can be very expensive if you get caught up purchasing tools and supplies. Luckily, there are numerous free resources available to help keep your budget from bursting at the seams. Here are are few of my favorite.
This is a full online-curriculum that allows students to learn independently online. You can change grades at any time by emailing the organizers or, if you upgrade to a premium account, through your on-line Parent Dashboard. This curriculum covers all subjects and the lessons are broken up by day (180 days) and your child can begin at any time. You do not have to do every lesson and we use it when things get busy around here. For the most part, this is a supplemental curriculum for us but it can be used as a spine.
Free online textbooks and online practice for children. Hevaily focused on STEM. Completely free but registration required. I print these out when I use them as my daughter learns better when she can highlight, take notes on, or write directly on the material.
Interactive learning tools that help supplement lessons. While not a full curriculum, the information here is invaluable. These resources are all interactive and are more or less available for use on PC/Macs, iPads, Android Tablets, and other mobile devices. Search by subject available. All resources here are completely free.
