A complete list of free homeschool curriculum! Homeschooling for free is doable. There are tons of quality curriculums out there for zero cost! There are online courses, downloadable courses, and some even send you the materials. You can also mix and match. With COVID-19, a lot more people are turning to homeschool. My husband taught for over ten years, and my degree is in elementary education. I decided to homeschool my children before I even became a parent. When I created this website, I did it to support others in their homeschool journey. I realize that my background may make it easier in some ways, and as such, I hope to be a resource of free information. I have another post (here) where I have highlighted free teaching materials, and it’s full of valuable resources as well. We use many of them in our homeschool classroom. This post will focus on the curriculum.
Khan Academy – This is a very valuable resource. They offer full lessons that are organized by subject area and include videos and curriculum. The best part is you can create an account and track progress.
The Good and the Beautiful – This is a favorite of mine. I feel like it is very thorough. They offer Free Language Arts Homeschool Curriculum for Level 1-5. Even though it says it is LA, some social studies, Art, and other subject areas are definitely in there. It is a very solid curriculum. Lots to print! I recommend this printer, I have had and used it a TON for months and the ink hasn’t even moved!

Free Homeschool Worksheets
If you want to supplement your curriculum or you feel your child needs just a little more work before progressing to the next concept, here is a list of some quality free homeschool worksheets.
Education.com is a great website. They have a lot of free homeschool worksheets on just about any subject.
123Homeschool4me Has tons of free worksheets and hands-on activities, printable games, and more. It is organized well and super-easy to use.
The Relaxed Homeschool also has some great stuff to offer, which includes free homeschool worksheets, but also a no-prep, free preschool curriculum.
Worksheet Fun is filled with free homeschool worksheets broken down by subject area and lessons. They even have math graph paper.
This may seem obscure, but for free homeschool activities, I want to emphasize that Facebook groups can be valuable. That is where I found our local group. Much like traditional schoolers, these kids have grown up together. We plan weekly park days so they see each other consistently. We do field trips and also camping trips several times a year. This has been our most valuable free homeschool resource. Just do a Facebook search and find your local tribe.
Finding a free homeschool curriculum can be an overwhelming task. I hope that this helps you one your homeschool journey!
