Happy Labor Day!
This is a post you definitely don’t want to miss. It has links to dozens of freebies in science, history, language arts, math, PreK, German and Spanish!!
Today is a holiday that honors the hard work of men and women across America. This blog has been my labor of love for more than seven years! It started as a way for me to document our homeschool journey and eventually became my career! Thank you so much for everyone who has supported the blog with purchases, kind comments, emails, and FB likes! A heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you!! 🙂
I thought it would be fitting to honor all homeschooler’s and educator’s hard work by highlighting some of the free materials we have on the blog. I know we have hundreds of new readers and because we have well over 2,000 posts, I know it’s easy to miss some of our materials! 🙂 And, believe it or not, I’ve left out tons of resources in the list below, so be sure to use the categories list or search function on the left sidebar if you’re looking for something specific.
I hope you find something to make your homeschool journey just a little bit easier! ~Liesl and the Kids
Normally, I include lots of photos of our materials, but this post is so long I’m not going to include many pictures.
I’ll group these freebies by general topic:
