Homeschool Resources

Lately, I've been on the search for some great homeschooling resources that I can use with my children and help me keep track of everything they are doing.

Here are a few websites that offer free or paid resources:

HomeschoolSkedTrack.com- This is a FREE online planner. I started using it at the beginning of the year, but switching between both of my older children to get the same assignments typed out frustrated me. There was too much back and forth. However, it is very helpful and may be an awesome tool for someone else. I do like that you can customize nearly everything.

Home School, Inc- This online planner is also FREE! I just discovered this last night. I'm still learning the ropes with it. I absolutely LOVE that I can create a course and choose the children that are taking the course. When putting in assignments for the course, you have the choice to add assignments to both at one time or assign different assignments for each child. All of the days in the term/semester are on one page. They recommend no more than 6 months for each term. I agree with their recommendation. I recommend 4 months max per term. I will update my review once I get everything "caught up" on this one and we use it for a few months.

Khan Academy- Khan Academy is free. There are many subjects covered on this website. Videos help explain concepts and information. We just started using this resource, but already my 2 older children like it.

Udemy- There are a mixture of free and paid courses. We haven't taken any yet, but once we do, I'll make a blog post about it.
