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 retired homeschool mom who homeschooled 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.
