A Sample of Free Curricula for Homeschooling

There is so much out there these days, especially on the internet, that one can learn as much or as little as one chooses.  The best part is that many of these valuable resources and ideas are generously shared with interested parties.  Since we have become more autonomous in our homeschooling approach, we have not used any specific curriculum from beginning to end.  Rather, our approach has been to pull resources from various places and to use them as we deem fit.

Below are some of the free resources that I find interesting.  We use them from time to time, with varying degrees of success.

General curriculum
  1. Ambleside Online
  2. Coursera
  3. Memrise
  4. K-5
  5. Homeschool Share

  1. Khan Academy
  2. MEP
  3. Can You Believe This is Math? 
  4. NRICH

  1. MSNucleus
  2. Inquiry in Action
  3. Middle School Chemistry

  1. Khan Academy 
  2. BBC Your Paintings
  3. EDSITEment
  4. BBC Schools Primary History
  5. Thinking History

As the homeschooling movement grows and with more homeschooling parents blogging about their experiences, I have found many interesting lesson ideas and plans shared by these creative families that I sometimes adapt in my own homeschool.

Many people have also found Pinterest, Facebook, and other social media to be useful for ideas and links.  I don't use these so cannot comment on them.  As such, my list is inexhaustive.

For more sources of free homeschooling resources, please visit:
Chareen's Homeschool for Free {Resource List} which contains a few links to help you homeschool for free from all over the web.

Bernadette shows how Homeschoolers Get It Free by keeping the cost of schooling down when they maximise available free resources.

Julie shares nine awesome free resources her family uses almost every week in Best Free Educational Resources.

  3. Thank you for visiting, ladies. I hope you find the links useful. :-)

  4. Oh, lots of those are on my list too! There really is a lot of free stuff out there for homeschooling. I still like our "traditional" BOOKS, but having on-line resources gives us variety and stretches the book budget!
