Curriculums and Lesson Plans
Curriculum and lesson plans
Not everyone wants to use a set curriculum, but others find them useful and there may be some folks who like to have them available as a starting point for ideas they can use. These are some that I've come across that are completely free and hopefully useful and fun. Also, be sure to check out the page for those already homeschooling as there are more sites listed there.

I wanted a few more options out there than I was finding so have added one more. Look under the education section of this site and you will find a pre-k curriculum based on the Reggio Emillia/project based method. It works well for kids who need to have a more hands on and flexible form of learning. The pre-k level does include a section on Wicca and one of teaching Irish Gaelic. Each section can be done apart or as a whole. I'm working on the kindergarten level currently and hope to have that up soon. For the kindergarten level the religious studies will be more focused on a general overview of world beliefs. Feel free to contact me if you would like to see a sample of this or have any questions. If you would like to be one of the testers for the kindergarten level when it's done please let me know.
A pagan school based on the Montessori method offering pre-k - 12 . They offer an umbrella option for those who may need it (although I don't see that as being n issue here in Texas).
An online school that offers k-12 and is more of a Unitarian Universalist philosophy and focuses on teaching peace and diversity. They offer online classes, qualified teachers and an internationally accredited school. Due to the nature of the school, this is a bit pricier than others listed here.
Lots of free printouts and general good teaching resources.
Online math tutoring, interactive lessons, worksheets and other resources. I'm not comfortable with math myself so this is a great resource for me.
This is a list of sites that are great for kids to learn music from at any age.
World Creation myths, designed for comparative study at the elementary school ages. This also includes a teachers guide.
LOTS of free online courses and classes included. Mostly aimed at the high school level.Includes prep classes for GED and other exams.
Has lot of stuff for studying science,etc using online flashcards,crossword puzzles and hangman.
This site has lots of ideas for ways to explore science online and in real life. They even have a step by step dissection of a cow eye for those too squeamish to try one in person.
Offers lots of stuff for kids learning chemistry. You can also click on one of the other links to try biology or one of the other subjects they cover.
You never know what you'll find for homeschoolers if you're willing to poke around a little in unusual places. If you're interested in something there may be something available just for homeschoolers. It never hurts to ask and you might be surprised what you come up with.
