Computer Science and Programming for Homeschoolers

Our Favorite Fun Gifts For Kids and Teens

Free Online Resources For Homeschoolers

Homeschooling is not free, in fact it can get very expensive, and very quickly.  It can be a lot less expensive as long as you visit the local library and utilize some of these free resources listed below.  Some of these are amazing, and I can’t believe I haven’t heard of them until I started researching more.

When I started out, it was going to be a list of 25 resources, but it quickly went up to 50, and that was just from memory.  I decided to dig deeper.  As I read more and more about, the list kept growing.  It has surpassed 100 resources at this point! I will add more as more of these wonderful resources come to my attention!
