Free Online Homeschooling
Resources And Websites

Here's the best free online homeschooling resources and printable worksheets chosen by 2,000 homeschoolers in my Courageous Homeschooling Facebook support group.

With a homeschool son now at Oxford University, I can reassure you that I have succeeded in homeschooling my two children with very little expense.

In fact, the most important advice I hear from homeschoolers trying to help is:

"I wish I hadn't wasted so much money on buying expensive curricula, especially when I started out."

Online homeschooling with the best free educational websites

N.B. If you are on Pinterest, you may find this useful to pin so you can refer to it.

  1. Khan Academy
  2. TED Ed
  3. PBS Education
  4. Google Earth
  5. NASA (if your child is into space, lots more great websites here)
  6. National Geographic Education
  7. Smithsonian Learning Lab where you can explore all their collections and use them in any way you choose
  8. Easy Peasy free all-in-one homeschool Christian curriculum (reviews of Easy Peasy and many more free curricula here)
  9. Mystery Science often has free memberships available (especially for new homeschoolers)

It is very easy to waste money because when you start homeschooling you often feel you need the extra reassurance of having a curriculum to follow.

But as you go through this list of websites suggested by homeschoolers you'll find proof that there's lots of brilliant online homeschooling resources FOR FREE. 

Best Free Homeschooling Resources

Homeschooling ideas book

When it comes to learning at home, I'm going to start by recommending this book because so many of the learning activities in it are free.  You'll find suggestions for the best websites covering individual subjects like Geography and Language Arts.

The book proves that you really can cover the curriculum with unusual and inexpensive ideas which make learning fun.

Free Online Homeschooling Websites

Selecting the best online homeschooling websites for you to use will save you a lot of time. We all know how easy it is to waste hours searching google and pinterest for ideas!

In my page on free resources I pick out the top three online sites which will really help when it comes to teaching your child at home.

Here's a few more best picks which deserve to be on the list:

MIT courses

"Open coursework is a great offering for students who might want to learn more about a particular subject as well as for non-students who want to educate themselves from some of the best institutions and instructors in the country."

~ MIT student

MIT Open Courses are highly recommended.

watch, know, learn online website with free educational videos

The Watch, Know, Learn online website has free educational videos covering language arts, math, science, history etc. for ages 3-18.

It comes recommended by Diana, one of my homeschool friends.  Thank you!

Free Online Worksheets

If you like free worksheets our guide points you to the best ones around.

When you're beginning homeschooling you'll find every home school family has different ideas as to how best to begin.

You'll find we have so many ideas that we've had to make a second half to the guide in our page on free worksheets.

After all, finding out things online is the way many kids learn best.

Catherine using a computer

If you'd like some free printable Math worksheets you'll find some great free online homeschooling sites which help with free math worksheets, including one you may have overlooked.

Senteacher.org is aimed at kids with special needs and learning disabilities which means they've done what every good online home school site should do:

Make math worksheets as kid friendly as possible.

More Free Homeschooling Online

You can find some suggestions for more free online homeschooling right here!

Of course, using the computer doesn't rule out lots of other places you can get free resources.

Many of us homeschoolers know all about making friends with our local librarian (ours is called James by the way!)

I'll be adding more free online homeschooling sites as I come across them.

If you have a recommendation for a free online home school curriculum which you like, please let me know.
