Homeschooling Doesn’t Have to be Expensive

There are so many different homeschool programs and it can be tricky to find a program you like that fits into your price range. However, homeschooling doesn’t have to be expensive. Fortuantely, there are some easy ways to offset the cost of materials. 

One way we create interest-led unit studies and programs for Emily is by making our own printables. This month, I’m excited to share our favorite FREE October homeschool printables with you. These themed printables give me a chance to line up our lessons with Emily’s passions and the season. 

Another way we make learning fun here at the Waldock Way is by theming our morning baskets and unit studies. You can check out my Halloween Themed Morning Basket for great ideas on how to theme your own morning basket this October. Then, discover spooky fun Halloween unit studies with my Pumpkin Unit Study or our Harry Potter inspired Wizards & Wands curriculum.

We love sharing our favorite unit studies and materials with the homeschooling community, that’s why we’re making these custom printables totally FREE each month. You can take advantage of our October printables and resources by signing up to have them emailed directly to your inbox each month.
