 Free Secular Homeschool Curricula

Here is my new compilation of 10 websites that offer free curricula in mathematics, language arts, sciences, social sciences, art, music and more.   Some concentrate in preschoolers or early childhood education, others run the gamut from preK through high school.  I’ve come across dozens of these sites, however, my number one criteria for inclusion in this list is a secular perspective, and second, each site must be worth our while.

 

1. Cookie

Bright and colorful, Cookie offers a delightful collection of games and activities for kids in preschool through 2nd grade. Perusing its content is free, but registration may be required to access some of the material. www.cookie.com

2.  ScootPad

A complete learning solution for children in grades K-5. Although ScootPad is geared towards schools, and a full program requires a paid membership, they do offer a free basic plan that can be adaptable to homeschoolers as a nice supplementation.  Really nice, kid-friendly graphics and set up.  www.scootpad.com

3. E-Learning for Kids

Claiming to be “a global non-profit foundation”, this site actually offers complete courses in math, language arts, science, computer, health, environmental and life skills.

5. neoK12

neoK12 claims that kids learn best by ‘seeing’ and by ‘doing’, so they’ve gathered what they say is the best collection of free online educational videos, lessons, quizzes, games and puzzles in Math, Social Studies and English.  Indeed, we have used many of their videos, lessons and puzzles; they all have been fun and kid-friendly.  www.neok12.com
