I love doing as much as I can for free. Some of the materials listed below were of my creation, while others I have found out about from fellow homeschooling families. I am starting to organize the free things that I share in various posts in an easy to find list. I’d love to hear about your free tools in the comments at the bottom of this post.
I also have a homeschool pinterest board (it’s starting to get so big that I need to divide it by subject) that has a lot more ideas.
Easy Peasy- All in One Homeschool has daily lessons assembled for pre-k through high school. There are Biblical references incorporated in the lessons, but it it is not the main source. There are a bunch of resources listed as well and it’s all free!
Khan Academy: Designed to make homeschooling free. There are a lot of videos on Math, Science, Humanities, and many other subjects. Parents can keep track of which content their child(ren) have viewed and what they’ve accomplished.
XGerms: In this game, the kids answer addition, subtraction, multiplication, division or a combination of each of these the types of questions. For every question they get right, they capture a germ in the germ lab. I review this game which comes in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and math mashup (+,-,*, / mixed together). It’s my kids’ favorite. Even my high schoolers use this to speed up their math fluency.
Race Car Math Facts: Hop in your race car and and practice your math facts as fast as you can in this game. Create a name and customize your car, then practice division, multiplication, addition and subtraction math facts while you race around the track.
Geoboard: Practice the basics of geometry in this math activity. There are two game styles: ‘Lesson mode’ where you can learn along with the program, or ‘challenge mode’ where you try and complete the given shape without assistance.
Math Minutes is like practicing using flash cards, only in a more electronic form. My kids enjoy using this online way to practice their math facts. See how many questions kids could answer in one minute.
Math Fact Cafe provides parents and teachers the best generators and pre-made worksheets, all for free. This includes basic fact worksheets, multiplication tables, counting by number, word problems, money worksheets, time worksheets, and much more. Our site allows visitors to access hundreds of pre-generated math worksheets or use awesome worksheet generators to create custom worksheets to meet a child’s specific needs.
US Geography Turn an old map into magnets. Coming to a fridge near you. Getting down with geography!! (This is a pin I pinned. When you go to the site from Pinterest, you get a warning saying the link is suspicious. However, everything checks out when I get there.)
LDS Simplified Scripture Mastery Handwriting practice pages: I looked at the scripture mastery scriptures and made them easier for my pre-readers through grade 4 to memorize the key parts of each scripture. Some scriptures are short enough that I left them as they were.
