How To Homeschool Your Children For Free

Aug 17, 2007
The fact is, you can actually design your homeschooling program in order for it to come free. By free we mean that you won't be spending an extra buck aside from the regular crayons and pieces of paper that a regular school kid would need at the start of a school year.

The key to getting homeschooling free is taking advantage of the resources around you.

The most obvious obstacle in beginning to homeschool your child is the need to create your own homeschooling curriculum. You may opt to purchase your own books to go over possible material, hire a professional to assist you in the creation of this curriculum, or better yet, go online and find a suitable free home schooling curriculum. Online home schooling support sites actually have various options for home schooling curriculum for you to choose from. Because these are all online, you are not likely to spend on transportation, professional fees, and even purchase of books you may not use when you decide you don't want them in your curriculum.

Carrying on with a homeschooling program does not have to be expensive either. If you prefer buying books, you can contact local book dealers. Dealers of book sets have various discounts for home schooling parents like you. The benefits of getting your own book sets include the convenience of having these books in the comfort of your home. The costs of purchasing the books will be well worth it because your succeeding children can make use of these same books when they reach the same educational level.

Otherwise, you can opt to take advantage of something closer to home - your town or city library. Your library will likely carry a huge wealth of books (some may no longer be sold in your regular bookstores!) that you can borrow when you need them.
Your regular school field trip can easily be replaced with the fraction of the cost. You can opt to see sites within the proximity of your home. Your city and your state may offer you a rich array of cultural and historical sites to visit. You can also opt to tie in education with whatever family trips and vacations you'll be making. Taking a trip to Lourdes? Build a lesson around the family trip so that you can use this time and the money you spend in homeschooling your child as well.

With some careful thought and innovativeness, you can easily make home schooling free both financially and effort-wise. Don't be afraid to ask around and look for ideas online from other homeschooling parents.
