My Top 10 Favorite Free Homeschool Sites

My Top 10 Favorite Free Homeschool Sites

I don’t write a lot about homeschooling here. Not because it’s not a big part of my life (it is!), but mostly because I know it tends to be a bit of a hot-button subject and I don’t feel like it’s my place or calling to tell you how you should choose to educate your kids. Every family and every child and every situation is different.

For our family so far, homeschooling has been a great fit. It requires a lot of effort and work, but it’s something that my husband and are very committed to and have rearranged a lot of how we do life in order to make it a priority. Our children love it (well, most days they do!) and they are currently really thriving in this environment.

My Top 10 Favorite Homeschool Sites

Many of you have written in time and time again and asked (even begged!) for me to write more about homeschooling. While I don’t plan to make that a regular part of the post line-up here, I do want to occasionally touch on the topic when I’m inspired to do so. And today is one such day!

After attending the homeschool conference last week and sitting in on Jamerrill’s session on creative ways to homeschool on a budget, I was inspired to write a post on my top 10 favorite sites to find free homeschool resources.

Free Homeschool Deals

Even if you don’t homeschool, if you have kids, teach kids, or care for kids, I think you’ll find some helpful resources and freebies on these sites:

1. Free Homeschool Deals

Jamerrill’s site is the queen of all free homeschool resources, in my opinion. She curates the best freebies and deals every day — including printables, resources, free ebooks, and more! — and shares them on her blog. If you only visit one site regularly for free homeschool resources, I’d recommend making it Free Homeschool Deals.

This site is sort of the Google of Free Homeschool Resources and it’s been around for years. It’s a great site to visit if you’re studying a certain subject and looking for online resources or printables to go along with it. You just search for any topic in the search box and it will pull up all resources they have that are applicable to that topic. This works especially when if you’re doing unit studies or themed studies.

3. Homeschool Creations

This site, run by my friend, Jolanthe, is a goldmine of free homeschool printables for a variety of ages. Jolanthe is very organized, so how she structures her days and runs her home always inspires me. If you need ideas for how to organize your homeschool day or plan lessons or set up your homeschool area, I highly recommend checking out HomeschoolCreations!

4. Confessions of a Homeschooler

Confessions of a Homeschooler has a fantastic Letter of the Week Curriculum that has lots of printable worksheets that we used to supplement the letter we were studying each week when I did My Father’s World Kindergarten with Kathrynne. The curriculum is only $10 and an exceptional buy for all the amazing downloads and helpful resources which come with it. If you can’t afford to buy the curriculum or would like to check out some of the printables before purchasing, there is a huge list of incredible free printables available here.

5. 1Plus1Plus1Equals1.net

I’ve known Carissa for a number of years and been so blessed by her. Her site has a mother lode of free printable Tot School Packs that I loved using when my kids were little. If you have little ones, you’ll want to not only check out her free printable packs, but also her completely free homeschool curriculum, too!

6. Read Aloud Revival Podcast

I have been so blessed, encouraged, and inspired to invest more time into reading good books aloud to my kids from this podcast. Not only that, but Sarah Mackenzie has just plain given me the extra shot in my arm I needed as a homeschool mom this past year. Her enthusiasm for mothering, learning, reading, investing in herself so she can pour into her family, and finding ways to flourish as a wife and mom has given fresh wind to my sails.

7. StarFall

Starfall is an educational website has lots of free interactive games and teaching tools for preschoolers and kindergartners. Our girls used this site when they were little and learned a lot of their letter sounds by playing the games and doing the activities on it.

8. The Library

No list of free homeschool resources would be complete without a hearty shout-out to your local library. Here are 7 ways to save by using the library that are beyond just checking out free books.

9. Homeschool Freebie of the Day

This site has been around for a long time and offers one select homeschool or educational freebie every day. Some are ones that require a newsletter sign-up and are one-day only. Others don’t require a newsletter sign-up and are available for more than 24 hours. I’ve downloaded some cool freebies from this site over the years.

10. The Complete Chronicles of Narnia Audio Dramas

This is different than the rest of the sites I posted, but it’s one that our family has enjoyed so much that I just had to include it on this list. You can listen online to the complete Chronicles of Narnia Audiobooks for free from Ancient Faith Radio. We’ve listened through this entire series and loved it.
