Are there any free sites for workbooks or do you have to order them?

We have gotten so many great websites from this mailing http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ClickSchooling/ each site is listed with an age range too which is so helpful, I can just delete if it doesn't apply.  Every Friday is a virtual Feild trip and there have been some REALLY COOL ones!  The list is sponsered by the author of Carschooling.

Oh, yes, Susan. If you want to, you can homeschool without shelling out a penny. Try googling "free worksheets" "free homeschool" "free curriculum" and other keywords like those. You'd be amazed at what you come up with. Also, remember the television. If you look through the TV guide, you might find some educational programming. TBN has drive-thru history, which the kids and I like.

For something that costs, but is well worth it, IMO, look into Cosmeo.  They have a 30 day free trial.  It has 1000's of videos on demand (many from The Discovery Channel, who runs it) plus Nutshell Math - alone worth the price.

wow - i'm so glad I found PBS.  This forum alone is priceless.  You all have such great knowledge and insight.  So many of those sites you recommended look amazing.  I can't wait to share some on my blog and with my HS support group

Thanks

Ange

Here are some links to math worksheets that just came through on a mailing list I'm on.  I haven't checked them out, so I don't know what grades they are for.

Hope this helps!  :)
