Making Free Online Homeschool Resources Work

making gree online resources work

Making Free Online Homeschool Resources Work has always been a struggle for me.  Often I get told of a good website to go to for this or that, and sometimes I check it out, but mostly I think that sounds good but I don’t need it now or I’m not sure how to actually incorporate that into our homeschool day.

Recently a friend showed me how she made her kids their own website so they could go to play games or look up things that interested them. She used the free website maker Weebly for making her site (she assures me it’s easy to do).

Now for many that is a concept that sounds amazing but in reality most of us would feel too technically challenged to do that (yet). However I was inspired to dabble with the idea and I came up with my own simple version that may help you.

Just Make A Links PDF of Your Free Online Homeschool Curriculum .

Here is what I did.

  • I decided that my kids needed some art lesson on book illustration so I googled  “book illustrator lessons”.
  • I found links to a few YouTube videos and I copied the link into a Word document
  • then after I was finished with the links I saved it as a PDF document.
  • After you’ve done the PDF you can save it on to the desktop of your computer for easy access to the page.

It took me less than 10 minutes to do. Now some of the links weren’t that good and when we started to watch them we found we could just stop watching and move to the next video.

What About Making A Playlist for Youtube

Did you know that you can make a playlist with your youtube account. Some homeschool mums use this very effectively.  Here is a list I made of Grammar Songs.

    Thanks Michelle! Your ‘book illustrator’ PDF is the kind of resource I would link to on my children’s website.
