For those who have taken on the task of homeschooling their child or children, finding affordable home school curriculum is a must. Home school curriculum comes in many different forms, from traditional textbooks equipped with student and teacher books to DVD and CD computer software that enables children to compete their studies online or with their home computer. However, many companies are now turning towards e-books for the distribution of home school curriculum. One company in particular, CurrClick, not only provides home school curriculum in an easy to download format, but also provides a free weekly home school e-book.
The focus on using e-books has greatly increased due to the amount of homeschooling families that use the computer as a regular part of their home school curriculum. There are many benefits to choosing e-books. First, you have the knowledge that you are saving paper and helping to save the environment. If you choose to print out an e-book you can at a very inexpensive cost. Also, e-books are readily available. As soon as you select an e-book, you can have it instantly, all with a right click of your mouse. You donít have to worry about e-books being shipped to your door. Thereís no doubt about it; e-books have revolutionized the home school industry and have provided great resources in education.
For those looking for additional resources for their childís home school education, I highly recommend CurrClick. Every week, they offer a new free home school e-book, and these books donít just consist of a few mere pages. One e-book that I particularly was fond of was a unit study on butterflies that consisted of over 42 pages. There are many great e-book resources available on the web, but if you are looking for prepared home school curriculum in an easy to download, e-book format then try CurrClick.
In addition to CurrClick, I also frequent many sites that provide free e-books that are educational in nature. One of my favorite sites is Project Gutenberg. Project Gutenberg provides free e-books that are in the public domain. They are a non-profit organization that is committed to preserving works that have passed into the public domain. You can download books in HTML format, and some are available in zip files. These can be downloaded to your computer and printed out at your leisure. By using the free books from CurrClick and Project Gutenberg you can easily supplement your home school curriculum with high quality educational materials.
