Homeschool Tools

There are so many homeschool tools our there that it can become intimidating. Here I’ve tried to put together an easy to navigate list of free tools to get you started on your homeschool journey.

These forms are ones I use in my own Homeschool to help me plan, budget for curriculum, and pace our year.

Included is:
1. a form to create a general year long pacing guide for all your curriculum, a budgeting form
2. a curriculum shopping list to help you stay on budget
3. a form to help you buy/sell your curriculum used
4. a daily schedule planner

File Folder Games from File Folder Fun
Homeschool Tools
One of my all time favourite homeschool tools. File folder games are an easy go to activity that pack away nice and tidy in little small spaces. Teach a new skill or practice an old one.

Free Lapbooks from Lapbook Lessons
Homeschool Tools
Lapbooks is another one of my favourite goto homeschool tools.

A lapbook is simply a file folder that contains a variety of “mini books,” foldables, and other material that cover detailed information about the lapbook’s central topic. … Lapbooks can focus on a specific topic, such as the rainforest, or serve as a reference tool for various skills, like basic grammar facts.

Creating Unit Studies {+Printable} from The Canadian Homeschooler
Homeschool Tools
Making your own unit studies can be a lot of fun, and mean that you can tailor fit them to your child’s favourite subjects and interests.

The first step is to pick the subject and then develop a plan around it – using whatever resources you have available to help. If you have a look for books, videos, websites, field trips you can take, resources in the community, people you can have as guests or visitors to teach, crafts and/or hands-on projects to do, etc. etc. The goal is to saturate your child’s learning experience with a fun, creative, and educational focus on the topic of choice.
