I thought I would share with you some great websites that can help you save money in your homeschool journey. These websites enable me to add some different things to my homeschool throughout the year without breaking the budget. A few of these site have paid features. I will give you my opinion with each.I hope this helps you on your homeschool journey!
The first website that I have really found useful for planning is Homeschool Tracker. You can find it at www.homeschooltracker.com/. This is a software planning package that has a free version and paid version. I have used the free version, but I would like to upgrade to the paid version when we have the funds. The main difference for me is that the paid version allows you to share assignments between students. I would suggest dowloading the free version and using it for a while. Then you can decide if the paid version is something that would be a bigger benefit. For me, I look for time-savers.
Next, is the website that was formerly Homeschool eStore. It is now called CurrClick. Their website can be found at http://www.currclick.com/. They offer a weekly freebie. You need to sign up for their newsletter, and each week, they will send you the information about the weekly freebie. I have personally used this service a lot.
Next, I love, love, love the Homeschool Freebie of the Day. This website is run by a publisher friend of mine, and it is just fantastic. The link to the website is found at FREEBIE of the Day. (The link was too long for my newsletter.)
Next, is Dover Publications. They have a weekly newsletter and freebie. Just sign up for the newsletter, and you will get the information. Their website is http://store.doverpublications.com/.
Next is another website by one of my publisher friends. The website is located at http://www.toytowntreasures.com/.
The next website is a hybrid. You can choose between a free or paid option. I personally have the paid option this year, because I have found a lot of worksheets for our unit studies on it. It’s found at http://www.enchantedlearning.com/Home.html.
Next is one that I have used to plan our Apologia Science programs. It’s found at http://www.donnayoung.org/.For those of you who like Charlotte Mason, you will like http://amblesideonline.org/.
And, finally, for those of you who like to read old books. You will love http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page. You will go back to this website over and over again.
