Complete, All Free Curriculum

What is Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool?   

We exist to help families homeschool. We enable families to homeschool who thought they couldn’t because of a lack of finances, a lack of time, or a lack of know-how. Others join EP just because it’s easy and fun and they’re confident of the quality of education. EP seeks to free families from the burden of pursuing the “perfect” and encourages them to let it be “enough.” Each family and each child is different and we seek to provide the resources to enable your family to be who you were meant to be.

In 2011 I began putting my children’s assignments online so that they can work independently and so that I have the assignments saved for their younger siblings. I also wrote it from the beginning to be able to be used by other families. EP grade levels and individual courses include 180 days of homeschool lessons and assignments. It covers reading, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, math, history/social studies/geography, science, Spanish, Bible, computer, music, art, PE/health, and logic. It uses only free materials found on the internet.

This site holds preschool (getting ready 1), kindergarten (getting ready 2), and first through eighth. (We have a separate high school site.) Grade levels include all of the English, math, computer and logic. The other subjects are combined into “program years” so that all of your children can study the same topic at the same time. Year 1’s theme is ancient history and biology. Year 2 has early American history and zoology for the theme. Year 3 is earth science and geography and cultures as  the theme. Year 4’s theme is modern history, physics and chemistry.

Your child just goes to Day 1 on his or her level (found in the sidebar) and starts clicking through the assignments! That’s all!

And yes, it’s all free. You’ll need paper, pencil, etc. and some minor supplies if you choose to do the experiments and art projects, but all of the reading materials, etc. are all free and online.

My hope is to enable families to continue homeschooling no matter their life circumstances. A sister site, All-in-One Highschool, holds the high school courses that are being made.

You can read more about the curriculum on the About and How To pages. You can also see if your questions have been answered on the FAQ page.

Note: EP is not an online school. We are a homeschool resource. Your home is the school! You are the administrator! We’re just here to help you on your way.

Here’s Your Present

For now, this is for those using or planning on using Math 1.
We have gotten our own versions of all the math worksheets from Math 1. That means, one, we’ll never have to replace them, and two, you can have them all in a packet to print all at once instead of having to open each one separately to print. (It’s waiting for you in Math 1 and First.) I hope this helps a lot of you, and if you don’t want to print, it’s available as a workbook. But, there’s more!

The woman who gifted us with these worksheets went on to make one for every day. There is now a workbook available with 180 pages of math activities. I don’t like encouraging extra work, so I thought those pages would be most useful in an offline course! Like our readers, you can now do Math 1 completely offline if you choose. Since she had done all that work, I went ahead and created a Parent’s Guide to go with it that fills in any gaps. Together with the student workbook it’s a complete one year math course for first grade. It’s totally offline but is based from EP’s online Math 1 course.

Hour of Code

I would encourage all kids about 8 and up to participate in the Hour of Code. Take an hour this week to complete your choice of three activities: drawing, building a website, working with a database.

Give Hour of Code a try. If it’s a hit in your home, here are a couple of other places where you can play to learn code.

Spam!

If you missed all the action, Easy Peasy was flagged as spam this morning by WordPress’ automatic controls meant to help us. They blocked our site until I could get ahold of them this morning to help them realize their mistake. They did and we’re okay. Everything’s back to normal.

Thank you for all of the patient responses. I’m sorry for the stress caused to those of you who panicked! As long as it is in my power, I will never leave you nor forsake you. :)
