I believe anybody can afford to homeschool. Of course homeschooling highschoolers, and maybe junior highers can get expensive because they need a more formal education then the elementary level. If parents are homeschooling elementary school students then not much money is needed. This is because you can easily teach them all they need to know and more without the help of textbooks, etc. You can take your kids on a weekly trip to the library. Most homeschooled students learn a lot from just reading books of their choice from the library. The library is filled with books that will get kid's brains working. If your kids love to read fiction, that's great, but make sure they look through those non-fiction aisles too. You can take your kids on field trips, get a family pass to your local science museum. This pass should get you to not only get into that museum free, but hundreds of other science museums and children's museums in the US and in other parts of the world. Kids love to explore the world around them, they love field trips. Take your kids on nature walks, make sure they bring paper and pencils to take notes on, or draw what they see on. This will improve kid's drawing skills of nature, and also their appreciation and understanding of nature. The internet is a great resource for homeschoolers! With the internet you can find great resources and websites for homeschooling your kids. This is also another great way for kids to teach themselves. Kids love to learn on kids' homework helper websites etc. This is also a great way for them to do research for a report they are making. Keep those kids writing! Creative writing, report writing, biography writing, diary writing, log writing, nature study journal, etc. encourage it all! Hopefully this has sparkled up some creativity in your mind on how you can homeschool your kids with spending practically no money! p.s. Some of these ideas come from the Charlotte Mason curriculum.
