Frugal Fridays - Free Homeschool Resources

We are living in a great age for homeschooling. The Internet has truly revolutionized both the methods and materiel available. Here are some of my favorite Internet resources:Edupics This is a site with many different free printables that are well organized.
And the best frugal homeschool resource? Your local library. If you are a homeschooling family your library ought to know you by name. They ought to smile when you walk in the door. Seriously.

Go as many times a week as you can. Check out as many books as you can carry. Listen to some new music. Watch some documentaries. Ask your librarians for help if you need it.

Today is a momentous day for our family: Polly got her very own library card (see above picture). She checked out 5 books: A Shakespeare picture book, a book about Ice Skating, an easy reader about July 4th, A big book of Aesop's fables, and a My Little Pony book. No, I did not tell her what to get (as that last selection may show you).
Do you have any frugal homeschool advice or websites to recommend? I'd love to hear them!
Find lots of great frugal inspiration at Biblical Womanhood. Or Money Saving Mom. Both of Crystal's sites are great!

Thanks for these tips. I'm planning to begin homeschooling my daughter this fall and am in the research and planning phase. These tips can really help!

Oooh, great resources, thanks! I was only familiar with 1 or 2 of them.

Congrats to Polly! What a special day! I love our local library. Plus I have a bonus! For over 15 years I have had the blessing of first my Nana and then my mom being Library Director! Talk about a familiar smiling face!
