I don't know that you can go completely free, unless your state offers K12 or Connections Academy or something. But even then there are costs for paper and pencils, crayons, printer ink. I don't use K12 or anything, I make my own curriculum with used textbooks. I spent almost $200 on all our supplies for the full year for 2 kids (plus materials to keep a toddler happy at the same time). LOL But there are many online resources for worksheets and games that are free, just try a google search and you'll find a lot of resources. Check out some of the homeschooling groups here too, they are a wealth of information.
