Free Homeschooling

There are many places to find free homeschooling materials. If you know the right places to look, you can supplement or even find everything you need for homeschooling.

Here are a few places to look to find lots of free resources:

  • The Internet - obviously most homeschoolers know that there are many sites and resources they can use for homeschooling. If you don't want to spend a lot of time searching on your own you can get a guide of Internet resources for homeschooling that has done all the work for you. All you have to do is click. Plus you can find all kinds of homeschool freebies too.
  • Library - Now that you can search and order books from the library from home, homeschoolers can utilize the library even more than before and with much more ease. No more dragging toddlers into the library to search for books for your middle schoolers. Just order the books or resources from home and go pick them up when the library sends you an email that they are in.
  • Other homeschoolers - Homeschool families either keep their books, sell their books, trade their books, or give away their books when they are done with them. Depending on who you know, you may be able to work out a trade or cheap sale with another family that has the books or materials that you want.
  • Government agencies - Agencies like NASA publish many documents and pictures of their research online. Find these at free homeschool curriculum
  • Free curriculum sites or out of print books online - A few sites will allow you to print off their book lists and where you can print the books for free online. You can find links to these at free homeschool curriculum.

Buy used and sell when you're done. This is a way to recoup your homeschooling costs so that you end up spending zero on your homeschool books by the time you are done.

Places like, eBay, Amazon,, email lists, local homeschool book fairs, and homeschool support groups are all good ways to find used homeschool books that you can use for a year or two and then resell. There is nothing illegal or shady about doing this either. Make sure you describe your item completely so that the seller knows just what they are getting. They will be happy to not have to pay full price.
