Homeschooling on a Dime? FREE Resources

Over the years, I’ve compiled lists of some pretty great FREE materials you can print out from online sources, or use online in some cases.  Take a look around and see what kinds of wonderful resources can bless your homeschool and help you teach what needs to be taught without breaking the bank!

And here are the main lists I’ve used for years…it took me a lot of time to compile these comprehensive lists of the ISBN #’s for student textbook that go along with the free printable workbooks.  The links to the workbook lists are at the end of each list of textbook #s.  The best way to get the cheapest price for the student textbooks is by going to www.dealoz.com and searching on the ISBN #.  After you enter your zip code one time, it will give you the lowest price including shipping.  When you combine a really cheap textbook with a free workbook, you can truly homeschool for next to nothing.  And the quality of these books is wonderful!

    1. You're very welcome! I'd like to add that so many public school teachers post their access codes for student textbooks online, and sometimes for teacher's books, as well. We recently had need to tutor our son in Glencoe Algebra I because he'll be attending public charter school in the fall, and we used a different algebra program. We wanted to make sure he was up to speed on their way of teaching algebra, so we did a quick internet search on the textbook name and "access codes" and found the codes for both student and teacher books online. After accessing them, we were also able to download each chapter to our computers so there was no need for online access to use them. That saved us a bunch of money and got us access to the most recent version of the books. Glencoe and McGraw Hill textbooks often provide online access like that for schools, so any time you need to access a specific subject they publish, try searching online for access codes first and see what you can get. You never know until you try!

  3. Hi, Do you have the links to access the textbooks, i can't seem to get them to work. Thanks

    1. Which ones are you referring to? The list at the top has all active links. They list at the bottom with ISBN numbers are the textbooks you have to purchase to match up with the printable workbooks that are free, which are available at the active link underneath each list. In other words, the workbooks are free, so I gave you the ISBN #'s for the matching textbooks so you can order them online...use www.dealoz.com to search for the best prices.

    1. I'm glad my list helped you out!

      If you have an ISBN for a text and need to find a matching text for it that's not on my list, try going to www.fes.follett.com. They are a vendor that buys and sells large quantities of unused textbooks from schools and such. Put in the ISBN you have, click on related texts on that page, and you'll likely find the matches you're looking for, whether they are textbooks, workbooks, or teacher's editions. Then once you've gotten he ISBN's, go back to www.dealoz.com to find the best deal. That's the method I most often use, and it usually works great for me!

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your feedback! Have a great weekend.

  5. Do you have, or do you know where I can get a free copy of Glencoe Vocabulary Power Workbook grade 8 Teacher's edition/answer key?

    1. What you are looking for is the Teacher Annotated Edition. You won't find that for free, but the ISBN # is 0078262291, and the best deal I found for that was on the Amazon Marketplace. http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0078262291/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0078262291&linkCode=as2&tag=dealoz_mkt_us_book-20. If you want to keep your eye out for a better price, just periodically search on that ISBN # at www.dealoz.com. Hope that helps!

  7. For access to view the student book for grade 4, go here: http://macmillanmh.com/ose/ and enter access code EB32CA78CA in the student's box. That will load the student book for you. I don't have any access codes for the teacher's book. Sorry! There is a teacher resource page here: http://www.mhschool.com/math/mathconnects/grade4/teacher.html
