There were several letters recently concerning homeschooling. I homeschool my four children ages 3-12. I wanted to mention two web sites that offer free downloadable products on either a weekly or daily basis.
CurrClick.com offers a free product every Monday. You simply download the curricula from their site. The majority of offerings would be most appropriate for the elementary crowd. We did a wonderful semester long study of rocks and geology a few years ago from material I downloaded from Currclick.
HomeschoolFreebieOfTheDay.com offers a free product every wee day (Monday- Friday). They offer a wide range of homeschooling helps including support materials, audio books, classic literature, and curricula. I check these sites on a regular basis and save what is useful to me on a USB memory stick. If I did not have access to new curricula for whatever reason I would have lots and lots of educational material for the children. The best part is – it’s free! Best Wishes, – S.T.H.
