One sure way to cut homeschool expenses is to do it yourself. But what if you prefer something already laid out for you? Well here is one more solution: Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool is a completely free online curriculum. The books and materials are accessible online.
Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool was created by a homeschool mom using materials online to teach her own children. The idea was to put assignments for her own children online, but she has graciously made those assignments available for everyone. Everything is free. There are low-cost offline versions of readers and other materials available for those who would like them, but they are not necessary to use the courses.
This curriculum is great for anyone who needs/wants to save money or time. As for money, the curriculum is free. The materials are online and free. You will need to have basic school supplies such as paper and pencils, but it requires no books or major supplies. In this way it is also good for those living overseas who have limited means of access to English books. As for time, this is a way for your children to work independently and to free you from planning.
Despite its low price tag, the curriculum is intended to be college preparatory — the material is challenging. Students are expected to primarily work independently. You’ll find elements of the Charlotte Mason school of thought — complete and comprehensive curriculum, but with short lessons. You’ll also find elements conducive to a learning lifestyle —
My children spend their extra time reading, writing, exploring, experimenting, programming, drawing, creating, working, doing chores, helping others, and PLAYING!
You can read more about the curriculum, the philosophy behind it, and how material choices are made on the about page.
If you don’t know where to start, visit the handy How to Use page. There you will find a link to a how-to video to get you started. You’ll also find placement helps. The program is designed such that a family of children can study the same thing at the same time with each child working at his or her own level. Material lists, goal sheets, and other printables are also available.
If you have high school students, you’ll want to visit the sister site: All-in-One High School.
Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool is going to be a huge blessing for many homeschool moms, tutors, and other educators!
