30 Days of Homeschool – Day 14: Free Curricula

(reminder – 1. this is about free resources for homeschool, in 30 non-consecutive posts…meaning: there won’t be a post every day, but there will be 30 🙂

PREFACE/ENCOURAGEMENT/PONTIFICATION: There are those who like to use what they have, some like to unschool, some like to buy this and that, and still others like the framework provided by a curriculum. This is for those of you who prefer the last option, yet don’t want to spend the money on it.

NOTE: Be wary of which free curriculum you use or sign up for. There are LOTS of options, and the site you visit may be filled with advertisements, or just offer free trials, or only a few free resources before you need to sign up/pay, may quire a registration that you don’t want to offer, or may even be an offering from another school. Public schools know the power of e-learning at home, so some of them offer free curricula – but it’s actually not designed for homeschoolers, and you’ll be signing up for public or other school. Just be aware of what’s out there, do your research, and use your expert judgment – you know better than anyone what’s best for your children and you.

http://www.onlypassionatecuriosity.com/free-homeschool-list/ – This is a compilation of lots of links to all kinds of subjects

http://allinonehomeschool.com/ – Free online curriculum (self-contained), with pages for different age groups, by subject, with questions and worksheets.

http://howtohomeschoolforfree.com/full-online-homeschool-curriculum/ – A short list of online curricula, but some good options. Plus there are lots of links to other sites and downloadable resources.

I chose to list just a few sites, as the offerings on these sites have links to lots of other resources, and to save you the hassle of having to spend all kinds of time reading this page. As curricula are so time-intensive to create, and free ones are typically done by 1 or 2 people, they will typically lack both the individuality and the broad expertise that you desire. But my hope is that the links here will provide you with the continuing knowledge that, yes, you can homeschool for free.

Happy Homeschooling!
