Free Online Homeschool Resource Roundup!

When I first began homeschooling I was told that you can basically homeschool for free using the web.  Well, I was a little bit skeptical and went out and purchased books anyway.  After three years, I’ve gained a little more confidence and realized that it’s okay to try things until you find whatever works!

Here are a few of my favorite resources for teaching at home.  You can use these as a full curriculum or as a supplement – even if you are not a full time home educator.

Star Fall – Learn to Read with Phonics {Free}  Pre-K and Kindergarten
This is and was a great resource for my kids when they were just starting school and learning how to read.  It offers games and makes learning fun.  Your Pre-K student can navigate this site easily.  They are so adorable when you see that little hand on the computer mouse working. 🙂

All -In- One Homeschool – Complete Online Curriculum {FREE}  Pre-K – 8th
Luckily, I stumbled upon this at the end of the last school year.  We had previously purchased a full online curriculum for $500 that just did not work for my daughter.  She was bored out of her mind with it.  So one month before school ended, I switched curriculum.  Crazy right?!  What can I say?  She loves A-I-O-Homeschool!  There is so much to offer – from foreign language, computer basics, building a blog?!! Yes you read that right :), and music!  There is even a FB group for support.  High school courses are being added too!  You can watch the video to see how it works here.

Kahn Academy – K – 12 Math {Free}
Kahn Academy teaches through videos.  There are sample problems and additional problems offered if your child needs a little extra practice.  Kahn Academy is always adding new content.  Besides Math, they are currently offering science including biology, chemistry, and physics.
