Yes, it’s Summer but that doesn’t mean learning get’s shelved with the curriculum books. There are a handful of great places you can get free homeschool curriculum ideas. I know you are thinking, “But I don’t have time to learn a new curriculum or to set something involved up!” Don’t worry these are quick and easy solutions to your learning dull-drums. Some you can sign-up for their newsletter so you are sure to not miss a single lesson or idea. I have used all of these resources for myself or to help refer other families so their curriculum can get spiced up a bit.
Remember sometimes a change in pace or type of learning is all you really need to ignite your child’s passion for learning again. (I will be taking my own advice and trying some new things with my kids this Summer as well!) Be sure to bookmark these sites, pin them, or share on facebook so other families can find these valuable resources!
Here are some of the best places to find free curriculum ideas year round! (I used our affiliate links when possible below.)
Click Schooling– I love the variety of learning experiences delivered to my inbox each day!
“ClickSchooling brings you daily recommendations by email for entertaining websites that help your kids learn.

Free Homeschool Deals– This is the MEGA freebie site that has evolved into the freebie homeschool hub I had wished for Something 2 Offer, but Jamerrill has a great team which shared a handful of deals each day.
“FreeHomeschoolDeals.com is a wildly popular, frugal living homeschool blog that is trusted daily by thousands of homeschool families throughout the world. In 2013 alone, FHD was visited by well over one million unique visitors and continues its rapid growth to this day.”
Freely Educate– I originally found lots of my middle school and high school resources from this site. It is not as active as it used to be but search a subject or grade and you’ll be amazed at what you find.
“At FreelyEducate.com, I focus on high quality, 100% free educational finds. I post for the children: preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school. I also post for homeschoolers, teachers, students, and families who love to learn together.
My goal is to prove a high quality education can be free. I don’t have a problem with paying for education. I’m just trying to remove one obstacle – finances – from those who think they “can’t” give – or get – a good education. Even if you don’t have money, you can still have knowledge. Isn’t that a beautiful truth?”
Frugal Homeschool Family – includes free resources on occasion for Catholic families as well as great finds around the net.
“In early 2013, after losing her job the previous fall, Frugal Homeschool Family founder, Heather Bowen and her husband Scott declared war on their finances. They reached the conclusion that financial strain and worry was putting a huge damper in their lives and they needed to break free from their chains of debt.
To this day, they are working hard to save money and become debt free. Heather has a passion for ministering to fellow homeschooling parents as evidenced on her other blog, Upside Down Homeschooling. Frugal Homeschooling Family will be taking that ministering a step farther as she will be sharing what she is learning about the frugal lifestyle our her journey to become debt free.”
Homeschool Buyers Co-op– I found this site a few year’s ago while searching for free reources. I even blogged about their free homeschool ID’s you can print yourself in case you need them! Lots of discounts and some free offers. If you plan to vacation out of state don’t miss checking their field trip finder!
The Homeschool Buyers Co-op is the world’s largest buyers club for homeschooling families. Founded in 2005, we are family-owned and operated business dedicated to providing top-quality curriculum at the lowest price possible.
Like you, we are homeschoolers with a love for family and a deep commitment to homeschooling.
Homeschool Freebie of the Day– typically a weekly newsletter that highlight all sorts of free homeschool learning opportunities from public domain to Historical audiobooks to discounted radio shows.
“We are the Erskine family (Jim & Susan), and we live on a 14 acre farm out here in the hills of Kentucky, and homeschooled all three of our kids (Randall, Russell & Jessica) all the way through high school. It was a crazy, fun, time-consuming, frustrating and wonderful period of our lives, but we’d do it all again in a heartbeat. These days we continue the homeschooling journey by running this site and finding neat resources for our homeschooling friends and families all over the globe. We love doing this too.”
Homeschool Share– offers tons of lapbooking resources as well as unit studies. Anyone with preschoolers and up will enjoy what HSS has to offer.
“Homeschool Share (HSS) is a on-line cooperative effort of several homeschooling moms to provide free but quality literature-based unit studies and resources.”
Stop by one of the above site today OR share this post with new homeschool families who need free resources to educate their children!
