Resources for homeschool and online learning, like bigbluebutton hosting, are not hard to find these days. You can go online and train your child in pretty much anything your heart desires. Of interest to our family are the topics of entrepreneurship, money, Bible, music and languages (plus all the traditional subjects.) If you are just starting to homeschool (or even thinking about it,) here are some neat resources and tools that can help.
What can’t you buy on Amazon these days? From our wireless printer to our ultra-cheap Chromebooks, Amazon has been our go-to for many homeschool materials, including books. You can also get customized school supply lists by grade to take the guesswork out of getting your school supplies. We also purchase a number of school books from Amazon. The Spectrum series of workbooks work well for language, math and writing. Abeka is also good for science and history.
Pureflix is like Netflix but with an array of family-oriented and educational videos. Pure Flix’s homeschooling curriculum also has many series that cover subjects like science, history, government and more.
I like the family-friendly nature of the content and the option to add educational resources. My oldest doesn’t have a science curriculum at the moment, so she’s watching some of the science series Pureflix has in its library.
Udemy is great marketplace for learning. You can find classes on pretty much anything: music, math, language, etc. Right now, my oldest daughter is using it to learn Spanish and supplement her advanced algebra studies. I’ve also taken a few Udemy classes on things like blogging, real-estate investing and more.
FamZoo is an app that helps us give our kids allowance and manage their money. They get real debit cards to help them learn about budgeting and using money in real life situations. Right, now we use the cards that come with FamZoo to pay their allowance and even dock them for neglecting chores. Soon, they will cover a portion of their own cell phone bill and the household wifi bill.
These are just a few fun resources we are using to supplement our kids’ homeschool curriculum. Thankfully, many of these tools will help us expedite our kids’ schooling and get them ready for college sooner than later.
