A couple years ago I shared some free homeschool resources that we were using. A couple years later, those websites don’t really fit us anymore, they aren’t exclusively secular which is all we use now. I want to share those with you. These are some great secular homeschooling websites that I have found in my search for free online resources for homeschooling on a budget.
