A while back I did a post on free curriculum, today I want to post about free online resources. These are not curriculum but you can use them to supplement anything you’re using.
Magic School Bus
If your kids are like mine they love the Magic School Bus. We watch it a lot and I personally consider it as part of our science curriculum now. I was delighted to learn that Scholastic offers some free resources to go along with the show. They are for grades pre-k-5th. This worked out perfectly for us because I have two that are in those grades. I love that we can expand on something my kids already love and they learn more! If you’d like to check the resources out here is the link for you!https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/collections/teaching-content/magic-school-bus-teaching-resources-1/?fbclid=IwAR38-i8uoJWRSZlTfFV8wIYQJiYmyBnVKJOO6jjP_c2MOSiZSzfK52WQGuo
MagicBlox Children’s Book Library
If you are looking for books for your children to read and don’t mind them being online this will be a great resource for you! They have beginner level (1-6) all the way to advanced (9-13). The books are cute and colorful, my kids really enjoy them! They have action and adventure, history, holidays and so much more! I love that my kids can read while I get things done. Check out the site for yourself with the link below.https://magicblox.com
You can print off geography resources to help supplement your geography curriculum with this site. They offer country fact sheets, children just like me sheets, country flag flashcards and more! You could realistically make a full geography unit study using what they offer. We love using these resources in our homeschool, my son says they are fun!

Scott Freman Reading
This site offers free grammar and writing to students. The resources are for grades 1-6. These are offered as online textbooks that you can print out. I love using them once in a while (we aren’t a textbook/worksheet family). I like giving my son busy work now and then and find these are helpful and that he likes them. Here is the link if you’d like to explore the site for yourself.https://web.archive.org/web/20130323153726/http://www.sfreading.com/resources/ghbgrd1.html#
I’m always looking for a Bible that my children can understand. They are young and the thees and thous trip them up a lot. I found this Bible from Bible Hub and it has easy to understand language. My kids enjoy reading it and this is what we use for our Bible class (until I find one that isn’t online that I like.) Check it out at the link below.https://biblehub.com/childrens/?fbclid=IwAR3heBblY0mm3l4zzeNbCHyV9bkMvn5DQlgN8aWNrw5l_1WsJEnepeIRZIo
These are just a few of the many many online resources you can find. It is my dearest hope some of these will help you! If you have any more you’d like to add to the list let us know in the comments.
