Long List of Free Homeschool and Teaching Resources

This is a list of some of the most useful homeschool and teaching resources from around the web. I have added in some free resources I found that integrate computer science concepts into science units, plus Engineering units for kids, and units from the CDC (Center for Disease Control).  If you have any great resources and websites I should add to this list, leave a comment or leave me a note over at our Homeschool Den Facebook Page and I’ll add in your suggestions! ~Liesl

It has free printables on any subject you need to get ready for the holiday season — gift lists, holiday budget, holiday cards, stocking stuffers, cleaning goals, and more!

If I plan to teach about a specific theme or topic I almost always start by searching these websites:

There are games for the young ones on colors, number recognition, phonics, and get more complex in the older grades (skip counting, fractions, multiplication, history, science, language arts (punctuation, for example) and more.

Freebies from the Homeschool Den — I may as well mention my own freebies, right?  I’ve shared everything from a free Rocks and Minerals packet to World Religions worksheets (Buddhism, HinduismIslam, medieval Church and more) to grammar practice worksheets to preschool math practice, math game boards, fun multiplication sheets (Minecraft Multiplication/Division Pages) and more.

Free Preschool Materials and Resources: 

  • Free “Sam” Phonics Readers — 52 phonics readers shared by Dr. Marriot at his website. This beginning reading program was developed in 1977 and since it was federally funded, federal law requires that the program be placed in the public domain.  I used the entire series with my preschooler last year.  From there we went on to a wonderful program that we purchased called Primary Phonics Storybook Starter Sets. We started with 1 and 1A and continued up through set 6.

Free Elementary Resource for Lapbooks:

Tina’s Dynamic Homeschool Plus – This is a great site for homeschoolers in elementary school. They offer lots of free lapbook, notebook and unit studies materials.  Topics include Ancient Civilizations, Daniel Boone, the Rainforest, Lewis and Clark, Westward Expansion, Carnivorous Plants, Toads and much more!

Used Homeschool Curriculum:

I have used Homeschool Classified a half-dozen times and find it a great place to buy used homeschool curriculum. It’s not free, but I thought it was worth a mention since I have saved so much money buying gently used materials!
