Hi All,
What are some good curriculum out there? 4th grade. I am hoping to do all free curriculum.
I am thinking I will probably buy some math workbooks and any other workbooks needed.
Thanks a bunch in advance for all your help.

Personally, I'd suggest Saxon math 5/4 for fourth grade math. It's not free, but you can get it, an answer book and the workpages fairly cheaply off of Amazon.com. My son is in 4th grade and is doing really well in it.

As for the rest, there's a book you might be able to get from your public library called Homeschool Your Child for Free. It came in handy when I was getting started. If not, you can buy it for $14 on Amazon.

I'm really fond of Ruth Beechick's books which offer great, low-cost ways to homeschool. I am a big fan of Charlotte Mason and the website Ambleside Online (http://www.amblesideonline.org/) which has free curriculum and links to great and free online resources.  I have also found a ton of curriculum through my local library, we have a great inter-library loan throughout our state and are fortunate to be able to request anything if it's in their system.  Our personal faves for curriculum are http://www.heartofdakota.com/ and My Father's World.  Another website we have used as supplement is Easy Peasy, there are a lot of math games on there. Good luck!

Lessonpathways.com is free, so is allinonehomescool.com and they both cover 4th grade.

Allinonehomescool.com is christian curriculum while lessonpathways.com is secular.

You would have to google that.  Google homeschool co-op or homeschool playgroups stuff like that.
