Homeschool Spot is here to share free and low cost educational resources for homeschoolers, educators, and anyone who is passionate about learning.
I am a homeschooling mom on a tight budget and I have been passionate about finding great free resources since I started homeschooling over 9 years ago.
Homeschoolers, educators, students and lifelong learners will find these resources beneficial in the pursuit of their educational goals.
In addition to the weekday radio series, Pulse of the Planet also has a monthly featured story, the Pulse Pick which covers issues in the news, behind the scenes on the blog, and free lesson plans & audio downloads for educators.
Ambleside Online is a curriculum guide and booklist designed to follow Charlotte Mason's method of homeschooling. Each year/grade has a list of books to lay out what resources will need to be collected or purchased, and an optional weekly schedule based on a 36-week school year to break the resources into smaller increments to help with pacing the books throughout the year. There is no fee to use the curriculum or website. Parents may use as much or as little of the booklists and schedules as they like. Some families follow it exactly as laid out, most tweak it a little here and there to use books they already have, or because they prefer another resource over the one listed. And some use just the Picture Study, Composer Study, and other similar components.

Einstein's Messengers explores these questions as it documents the unfolding story of LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory
LIGO searches for the ripples of space-time called gravitational waves. Albert Einstein first predicted these waves in his 1916 general theory of relativity, but for years their effects were regarded as too small to measure. LIGO, supported by the National Science Foundation, now participates in an international quest to uncover the messages that gravitational waves will bring from highly energetic distant events. These messages may revolutionize our understanding of black holes, neutron stars and the processes that formed the universe.
