Free Homeschooling Curriculum
The Best Home School Resources

Trying out a free homeschooling curriculum is a great way to find out what suits you and your child best.

Especially as it will save spending lots of money on something which may not work!

Here's a list of the ones which get top marks.

At the bottom of the page you'll see lots of answers from fellow homeschoolers to the question Jennifer asked about which homeschool curriculum to use.

And it's important to note that many of those who answered said they followed no set curriculum at all!

Here's Jennifer's question:

"Which home-school curriculum do you use? ... We are in K-12, I mean, I want my son to learn as much as he can, but this is nonsense, just, ridiculous!

They do not allow me time to teach him at the pace he needs to be taught, so many dead lines and classes that it is almost more stressful than b&m public schools. We need a change. Thanking you in advance."

Which Homeschool Curriculum?

When you're working out which free homeschooling curriculum to choose, it's worth looking at the answers Jennifer got to this question on my Facebook page:

This is what people wrote:

"I don't follow a curriculum, I follow her interests as I find she takes a lot more in if she's interested in the subject" ~ Charlotte

"We use a bunch of different curriculum. Different items for different subjects/needs. Grade leveled, boxed sets just don't work for us, so we have an eclectic approach." ~ Denise

"I don't follow a curriculum either. I just work to their interests too. Find that works better for us." ~ Jane

"Several Beautiful Feet Books is amazing for history, math-u-see, and all about reading/spelling. We add a few extras or course science depending on the year apologia or answears in genius. But we notebook/lapbook as a proof of learning and that makes it much more enjoyable. We have a Charlotte Mason approach but adapt it to our needs. If you are called to homeschool don't give up. Praying for you and your family!!" ~ Jeannine

"We use Sonlight, which is a literature based program, for our core subjects with Singapore Math and some other things added in. I love it!" ~ Alicia

"We never test, and now only piece together curriculum as needed. My suggestion to you is to research deschooling.  If you're removing your child from virtual public schooling (which k-12 is) you'll both need a period of transition into homeschooling....Take time to find what fits the two of you best. You both can help chose what will make you grow and be happy. We use Ambleside Online to help guide us. Other than that, I find the things I think will fit our style best. Rainbow Resource is a great place to research and purchase curriculum from." ~ Laurie

"A lot of my friends use a christian based curriculum called, Abbeka, i've looked into it, and its the one i'll be using next year" ~ Christiane

"Jennifer, we are in GA K12 8th grade Montgomery Academy. I totally understand your frustrations with K12 pacing. This being or first year The state testing is a great unknown and going forward how do I make sure the program is accredited so a formal high school diploma will be issued and recognized by a college. I wish you luck in your search." ~ Kelly

"We use Saxon Math, Explode the Code for reading instruction, daily journals and report assignments for writing, for grammar, Sequential Spelling, and Layers of Learning for our other subjects." ~ Layers of Learning

It is interesting that out of more than 10,000 of my Facebook fans, the people who wrote that they used no set course got by far the most likes, so it's definitely worth looking at your free homeschooling curriculum options before you buy anything.
