*I've been invited to try Time4Learning for one month in exchange for a candid review. Time4Learning can be used for homeschool, afterschool and summer skill sharpening. Be sure to come back and read about my experience.
The month of August brings many homeschoolers back to studies. Start your new year off with some cool freebies to use in your Fall curriculum. Here are several useful and interesting resources, that keep your teaching and pocketbook in check!
Teacher Created Resources offers a free E-Book every month for subscribers. It is free to subscribe, and the monthly free downloadable e-books offer creative ideas, lesson plans and timely activities. Check them out here:
You can also sign up for daily “Brain Ticklers”, as well as weekly “Teaching Tips”, “Brain Teasers” , “Writing Prompts”, calendars and more! Visit http://www.teachercreated.com/free/
If you are a Magic Tree House fan you need lesson plans and ideas to go with these new classic books. The go to site for Magic Tree House fans is below:
Check out the comprehensive site above for free ideas, lesson plans, comprehension questions, printables and more. Whether you are doing The Magic Tree House series at home, or with a homeschool cooperative group, this is a site to bookmark.
Your teen homeschooler might enjoy this free group! Sponsored by Macmillan Books, "InGroup" is made up of a bunch of teens 13-18 years old who love to read and review books, sometimes even before the book goes on sale! Teenagers who are internet savvy and love to read a variety of books will enjoy this social networking connection to their peers. Parents should be aware that this site does not offer Christian only books, so do check out the selections and the site before deciding if it is right for your homeschooling teen. Here is the link: www.macteenbooks.com/category/ingroup/
Apples are a treat during ‘back to school” for homeschoolers and parents, too! Jazz up your Fall theme with the amazing and huge free resource below, from Michigan Apples. With activities for grades Kindergarten through eighth grade, you are sure to find some of this free information useful.
If you have yet to sign up for the Homeschool Freebie of the Day please do so! This free newsletter will be delivered weekly to your inbox, which will enable you to access free lesson plans, website information, teaching ideas and much more! The resources vary weekly, as to grade level and topics, but I have enjoyed many of the links and fit them into my homeschool curriculum as enrichment activities.
Look for new articles monthly with free resources for homeschoolers. Stop by the Homeschooling forum on this site, too, where you can find free and timely links for homeschoolers, posted on a weekly basis!
