I’m a nut for freebies.
I’ve been downloading really great free homeschooling resources for years.
And forgetting to use them…
I hope I’m not the only homeschooler who has freebie amnesia.
This afternoon I went through the files on my laptop and my external hard drive and I dug up some real gems that will coordinate with our studies this year. The big reason I don’t remember to use things is that I download something thinking it will be great when we study the Civil War or astronomy or whatever and then I forget to look when we finally are studying that topic. Hopefully since I’m looking now, I’ll actually remember to use these!
Everyone (minus baby) will be studying the years 1800-1900 using Tapestry of Grace Year 3. Here’s what I found to go along with that.

A Classical Copybook Covering Early Modern History (This looks like a revised version of what I have.)
Great Civil War Projects You Can Build Yourself
Great Pioneer Projects You Can Build Yourself
For science for my younger children I plan on focusing on nature study. I purchased Considering God’s Creation for my oldest daughter and am planning on picking topics for my 3rd grade son and K daughter that coordinate with that.
I found some more great lapbooks on my hard drive for science.
For my Kindergartner, I found:
Simple Scissor Practice (This one’s still free!)
Enough of the stalling. It’s time to start the serious school planning! (I hope I’m not the only one who suddenly decides to tackle a big seemingly unrelated project when I should be doing something else. I always seemed to have a sudden desire to clean out my closet during finals week!)
