|Our six year old next to "Goliath"|
There are so many wonderful and free resources on the Internet, that I'm planning on spending very little on our home school next year, but instead pulling together a lot of it myself. I thought I'd share a few great sites for you in case you're interested or want to just work on some things with your children at home for free:
Pinterest: Pinterest is a wonderful tool. Just type in whatever topic you're planning to teach and a whole lot of ideas pop up. I pin them by subject so I can find them down the road when my younger kids are learning about the same topic again.
Teachers Pay Teachers: Another wonderful site. Sign up for a free account and then you can search for items based on grade, subject, and even if the items are free (some do cost money).
3 Dinosaurs: A blogger with a ton of useful content and printables. I used this blog for our kindergarten phonics (CVC words, sight words, etc...).
K12 Reader: A complete spelling curriculum for 1st-5th grade! Need I say more. Spelling, check.
Worksheet Works: Make your own handwriting practice printables to say whatever you want! There's also helpful math, science, and calendar printables. I used this site to create handwriting printables for our Bible curriculum next year. We'll be going through Proverbs, and each week, we'll have a theme verse to copy. You can choose print, cursive, or pre-cursive practice.
Let me know if you have any free home school resources that you use! What a blessing to have the worldwide web at our finger tips... There's an abundance of home school resources out there!
