5 Must-Have, No-Cost Resources for Homeschooling

freeThese past two years have not been easy ones for many Americans, that’s for sure. With businesses downsizing and laying off staff, many loyal employees find themselves out of work. With the bursting of the real estate bubble, many hard-working homeowners find themselves in a house they can no longer afford to keep and yet can neither afford to sell. We live in hard times, but often it is these very hard times that generate the most creative thinking. As they say… Necessity is the mother of invention. I believe that was first spoken by Plato. Or you could say… “Invention is the mother of necessity.” Thorstein Veblen, the author of that quote, was a U.S. economist and social philosopher who lived during the latter portion of the 19th century until the Great Depression. He lived in times not unlike our own. Swift change can cause turmoil.

So, if invention and creativity is spurred on by necessity or difficulty (and vice versa), then now is a great time to look for and use no-cost resources that will serve us well during this economic downturn.

There are many of you who cannot afford homeschooling curriculum this year. Does that mean that you should put your children into public school? No, what it means is that it is time to get creative, even inventive, when it comes to our children’s education.

And this is your place to start. I am going to share with you my top 5 “must-have” homeschooling resources that won’t cost you a dime. Bookmark each of these sites and refer to them often as you prepare and teach your children during this upcoming school year.

5 Must-Have No-Cost Resources

Are you homeschooling a high schooler?

This year is bittersweet for me as my oldest completely homeschooled child is entering her senior year.  I can remember clearly my trepidation when we began this high school adventure 3 years ago as it was all new to me.

Now, she is a beautiful, confident high school senior who is taking courses at the local community college and getting ready to graduate.  Wow, time flies and it won’t be long before my little bird flies from my homeschool nest.  I approach this final year with her as my student with a sense of sadness, but also with tremendous joy!  What an accomplishment we will soon celebrate!

Are you thinking about high school?  Or perhaps feeling muddled in the middle of it all.  Here are two links to provide encouragement for you and some resources that will make the way smoother.  God bless you in your journey!
