Free Homeschool Resources and Printables
Free Homeschool Resources and Printables
One of the perks of homeschooling is adding in the fun activities. Coming up with games, puzzles, and scavenger hunts to surprise the kids with is super fun, but also time consuming. Not too many homeschool moms have “free time”, let alone any available moment to use the computer and download free resources.
Homeschooling is not cheap. I know families that have used free curriculum’s they found online, but for us, we always went with either A Beka, Sonlight, My Father’s World, or other well known curriculum’s.
I personally loved getting complete package kits from the homeschool source I chose that year. However, the one downside is that those complete kits leave little room for imagination. Adding in your own fun worksheets, puzzles, games, video games, scavenger hunts, etc. can really add a little spice to the day.
Kids love to get surprises. And I found that my own children relished in the extras I would add in to break up the monotony of their learning.
Homeschool is supposed to be fun after all!

CurriculumPathways.com – you can join with a free account and have access to valuable free resources. Their team of curriculum specialists research, and create education based learning programs, apps, and services that are free to use. Since we do live in a modern world, taking advantage of fun learning apps and games is so important. Young boys especially seem to do better with paying attention when it’s fun, or on an electronic device. I’m not sure why that is, but I have seen the difference in trying to teach young boys vs. girls, and girls are just easier! (I’d love to hear your thoughts on this. Share them with us below!)
