Free Homeschooling Resources

Homeschoolers today have an advantage over the homeschooling pioneers of the early 1980's. When I started homeschooling in 1984, we were pretty much on our own. Today we have the internet! It is truly amazing how many FREE resources are available for homeschoolers. While no one can possibly list all the free resources available to homeschoolers, I'll list a few of my favorites:
