As a stay at home mom and home school teacher, I am constantly on the search for great educational material that fits our family budget. Here are some of the wonderful FREE educational resources that I use with my five year old. Even if you don’t home school, you may be able to find use in these sites to help your children learn all that they can and keep them on track through the summer months.Crawfish Pie is only five years old, and uses mostly Pre-K and Kindergarten curricula. As she grows academically we will continue to add other grade appropriate resources, some of the links below do offer free resources for higher grade levels so feel free to look around. All of the following resources are completely free, and some may require a free account/subscription. I promise, the only things we have paid for are printer ink and art supplies. Happy Home Schooling!
