Free is GOOD!
Just thought I’d take a minute to pass along a few of my favorite spots online for finding FREE ways to enrich our homeschool experience.
Freelyeducate.com is a wonderful blog that daily posts free resources for homeschoolers. If I see something that interests me, even if it’s too advanced for my children, I usually go ahead and download it to have available in the future.
Sometimes those freebies are from CurrClick.com, but I like to check that site out directly as well. I’ve found several fun ideas here, some for preschool, some for later on.
HomeschoolShare.com is probably the site I use most regularly at the stage we’re in (and I anticipate it remaining so for the next couple years as we continue using Five in a Row). It’s a great place for unit study resources, especially those that are literature based.
As far as curriculum, obviously we get tons of great preschool ideas from ABCJesusLovesMe.com, but I also love AmblesideOnline (as I’ve written about before). Most of it is geared toward kids older than mine (elementary on up), but the preschool/Kindergarten booklist and suggestions are a wonderful resource. Learning about the Charlotte Mason method has also really helped shape my vision for our homeschooling journey. I realize not everyone is as nuts about books as I am and AO is definitely not a “school at home” type of curriculum. Check out this post from freelyeducate.com that discusses several options available for free online.
I know there’s a lot more out there, but these are sites I access regularly for great free ideas, so I thought I’d pass them along 🙂
