Does anyone know of a free home school for kindergarten??

I am in desperate need to find a free home school. My son is in kindergarten, but we recently checked him out of school because the school does not watch the children or take care of them. My son was left at school instead of put on the bus one day and was put on the bus when he was suppose to be picked up on another day. There has been 2 incidents where a 5 year old was found walking down the highway because the school is not keeping an eye on them. So if you know of any free home schools please help me out!

  • Well, are you looking for homeschool ideas? We started out looking for homeschool associations in our area. Where are you from?

  • http://www.makinglearningfun.com/


    http://www.learningpage.com/


    http://www.starfall.com/ (great for learning to read)


    http://www.enchantedlearning.com/


    http://www.abcteach.com/


    http://www.homeschoolshare.com/ - great lapbook resources


    I also love "What your -- Needs to Know" series (in your case Kindergartner).  Another idea would be to search for theme units online, several early childhood classrooms have websites that offer lots of information and ideas.

  • http://www.oklahomahomeschool.com/ is also a good site for getting started.  I'm in Miami, Oklahoma (very northeast corner) not sure where Carnegie is though.

  • you don't need to pay for curriculum at that age, just google kindergarten skills, then each item that search pulls up individually. there are TONS of free sites online: Sprout (pbs) as pre-math and pre-reading (phonics) games featuring their shows' characters. IXL.com is a pay site for math, but obviously you won't need to check the answers, so if you just hit the back button instead of entering you can do as many problems as you want there. also, check the library for "What your Kindergartener Needs to Know" and books by Rebecca Rupp. here is a link to free curriculum resources, but it's a Christian based site if that's an issue.

  • connectionsacademy.com We started in first grade but I really like what they offered for kindergarten and it's free in most states.
