About Me E-mail
Have you heard the one about the homeschooling family that lives on less than $22K a year in an area that costs above 100% (116%) of the National CoL Index?

I haven't quite figured out why so many people still persist in perpetuating the myth that living on a single income and homeschooling on a dime aren't possible. I can only suppose these are people who can't imagine life without a daily trip to Starbucks and dinner out several times a week. The people who actually shop at malls (*shudder*) and think "Brand Name = Best". The people who really live by the "Keeping up with the Joneses" mentality.

That? Would not be us!

Welcome to our world. We cook from scratch. Buy from thrift stores. Find 95% of our homeschool materials for free. This is my blog and this is how we do it.

My lesson plans.

I have begun uploading my lesson plans for subjects where all the source materials are free.

All files and sources in my uploaded plans are free to use. You are more than welcome to share my links with other homeschoolers, but they must *never* be included in any type of collection or reference that is for sale.

I will not be covering math, as we use Saxon. However, if you are in search of a free math program you can find one HERE. This is a comprehensive program, though note that the site is British, so you will encounter some spelling differences and problems/questions that refer to the British pound rather than the US dollar. Also - the years are "off" by our system as Year 1 is our kindergarten, not 1st grade, and then so on.

If you have an upper elementary, middle school, or high school student, you might also be interested in THIS. The courses titled "Mathematics 1, 2, and 3" are for middle school grades. The others are for high school. However, as these books were written originally for "struggling learners," you could use them for younger students who are working on an average pace.
