Homeschool Freebie of the Day

February 24, 2009

I’ve been taking advantage of this, and I guess it’s only fair to share the wealth. Sorry to keep you in the dark, but you know I’m a little distracted.

You can go to this site and sign up to receive a free ‘something or other’ every day to help enhance your homeschooling experience. Some days will not be as interesting to you as others, so just skip them and come again the next day. It’s definitely worth checking out, though. Each week they will give you a “heads up” about what’s coming the following week so you can be sure to log on for the day you are interested in. Most of it is in pdf form, so it’s easy and quick to download, but each item is only available for free that one day. Otherwise, you can purchase it at a reasonable price.

Hope this is helpful to someone! This week’s resources are the following (just to give you an idea of what’s out there):
