Homeschooling is a great way to ensure your children are getting an excellent education, but it can be expensive. Luckily there’s free homeschool curriculum available that will let you teach all subjects and keep them engaged!
Most families are on a really tight budget and don’t have the capacity to spend thousands on a great homeschool curriculum. But that’s ok, you don’t need to. We actually do a mixture of free resources and paid now we are in middle school, but in elementary grades, we definitely did more free resources.
We did our first ever map testing for homeschoolers standardized test in January (mainly as I was a little concerned that we weren’t doing enough, and to get him ready for college.) He tested in the average range for kids 5 years older! I am only saying this as a lot of our elementary curriculum was from this list. Free homeschool curriculum is not bad, and in some cases, we think it is better than the paid courses!
There are over 100 completely FREE homeschooling resources included in this list, for EVERY subject, and for EVERY age. So you will definitely find something that helps you. At the very bottom of this post, there is an option to get this list printed out (with hyperlinks). All you need to do is subscribe to my newsletter where I share mainly free resources that I create and find for you.
I have organized the free homeschool curriculum resources into subjects to make them easier to search.
