Free Homeschool Resources to Check Out

I’ve been reading through the book, Homeschool Your Child for Free in preparation for our official homeschool start this Fall.

Homeschool Your Child For Free

Though the book is a bit outdated, it is still chock full of terrific resources and things to check out.  I picked it up at our local library, but this might be one resource I need to buy and have on hand.  Here’s a few of the things I’m definitely going to check out.

Let Me Know What You Think!

Now, I haven’t actually checked any of these out yet, so if you beat me to it — be sure to let me know what you think in the comments!  I am finding that a lot of the suggested websites in the book are actually gone, so I’m rethinking that whole buying thing.
