I have been homeschooling my two fourth graders since August. It has been an adventure that makes me both smile and cry. But it has been a pretty cheap adventure.
I knew what the expectations for 4th grade learning in my state before I planned because I got them from the Dept of Education website. I immediately started looking for resources that I could use to teach the kids. I found several Facebook pages that offered so much help and guidance; I want to share some of my free resources with you in case you are homeschooling or thinking about homeschooling.
teacherspayteachers.com- there are free downloads which vary in usefulness. There are also plenty of items you could pay for.
123homeschool4me.com- more free worksheets
allinonehomeschool.com- free curriculum
typing.com- a free resource to teach students to type
turtlediary.com- there are plenty of educational games and assessment tests available for free with ads; there are memberships available to make the games ad free.
Pinterest- there are a lot of blogs that have great hands on learning ideas or experiments. I love doing anything that makes learning more fun!
funbrain.com- has both free content and things that need to be paid for. I do like the reading selection that they have.
Prodigy- this is a math website that again has both parts that are free and parts that need to be paid for. My kids want me to pay for the membership because they can’t play some of the games all the way through.
spellingtraining.com- pretty self explanatory. We are going to start using this one more. My kids spelling is pretty atrocious.
readtheory.com- they help improve reading comprehension
YouTube, Netflix, Prime and Disney+ have plenty of documentaries and videos for visual learning.
Amazon actually has learning material you can purchase and download. They are pretty reasonably priced AND they go on sale occasionally. These are some of the items I purchased from Amazon and I really enjoy them, I did get them on sale… I think 50%-75% off, so keep an eye out on them!!
The product links below are affiliate links, if you make a purchase from the link I get a small portion of the sale.
