Homeschool my child for free? You’ve got to be kidding, right? But what if I weren’t kidding? What if you could pull resources from other areas and actually spend little to no money and still give my kids an awesome education? Does that pique your curiosity? Seem to good to be true?
In this book, “Homeschool Your Child For Free”, you have access to more than 1,200 practical resources for home education on the internet.
LauraMeary Gold writes a popular weekly internet column for homeschoolers and operates one of the largest homeschooling lists on the internet. She and her husband, Dan Post, are the homeschooling parents of seven children. Joan M. Zielinski is the mother of four – one of whom is LauraMaery. She herself is a professional educator of over thirty years.
Surprisingly, or maybe not so surprising, is that in the day and age, there is really isn’t anything that you can’t find on the Internet. I personally love doing research on the internet. When LauraMaery polled a large group of home schooling families, she found that 28% of them described themselves as primarily reliant on free resources, and 46% said that they relied on a mix of free resources and formal curricula. And I believe the numbers are rising.
This book is set up to enable you to develop a solid curriculum – customized for your children – that complies with the legal requirements for the area you live in. Once you’ve decided which subjects you’ll be teaching and at what ages, you can gather teaching materials, handouts, texts, lesson plans, and everything else you require from the free resources categorized by subject throughout this book.
This 475-page book contains sections on Homeschool How-To’s, Core Curriculum, Education Essentials, Language Literacy, Mathematics Mastery, Art Appreciation, History Highlights, Music Marathon, Social Studies Skills, Humanities, Science, and the list goes on and on. You’ll also find non-Internet free resources, advice from experts about how to teach academic subjects, and information from homeschooling parents about how they homeschool.
If using the Internet and it’s free resources sounds appealing to you, then this is the book for you! I don’t believe that you’ll be disappointed! Take some time to check it out. You’ll want to own this one!
