Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool

A complete, free online Christian homeschool for your family and mine

How To Use

Here is a how-to video which covers much of what is below and will walk you through getting started with the curriculum. (Transcript of How-To Video)

Here is one mom’s how-it-works description.

Please consider using Adblock Plus (free) to protect your kids from advertisements.

There are two decisions you need to make to get started with this curriculum. One, choose your child’s level. You can select a premade level, ie. First, Second, Third, or you can mix and match and have your child do a different levels for math, reading and language arts, chosen from the sidebar menu. The course descriptions are at the top of each course page to let you know what they will be learning. Here are our placement guides to aid you in your decision. Math Placement Guide, EP Reading Placement GuideLanguage Arts Placement Guide

The second decision is to choose a “program year.” This is what they will be studying.

Program Year 1 is ancient history and biology.

Program Year 2 is early American history and animals.  (lots of lapbooks)

Program Year 3 is geography/cultures and earth science.

Program Year 4 is modern history and chemistry/physics.  (lots of experiments)

Music and art relate as much as possible to the time periods studied and appear once a week in the curriculum. PE/health, computer and “thinking” are also once a week.

If you are using the full curriculum, just click on the grade level and find Day 1. All you have to do is click from there!

When you see an asterisks*, it means that there is something to print out. (*) means it is optional. I mark the day, the subject and then the specific item that needs printing. I did this so that you can easily look ahead and print out what’s needed ahead of time. (I print out a week at a time, the younger the student the more to print.) As much as possible I have them do things online instead of on paper. Materials needed are written out in bold next to the day they are used. Hopefully soon there will be a full materials list you can refer to.

Answers come in two forms. There are password protected answer pages. You can find out how to get the password on the FAQ page. Other times I wrote the answers right on the page like this (answer: All you have to do it highlight it to see it.)  The answer is there, written in white. Just click and drag and highlight over the blank area to see the answer. Try it now. Occasionally I put hints like that as well. Most of the answers are not hidden from your kids. I used it for English because I wanted to be able to check for reading comprehension. If you check the answers on the same computer and same browser that your kids are using, your computer will remember the password  and show the answers in the future. You can clear your cache to have it forget the password and then start checking at least on a separate browser if not computer. Or, you might just want to tell your kids not to look at the answers. :)

Every forty days there are notes to the kids to give things to you to add to your portfolio, so you should have a record from each subject quarterly. I didn’t do this specifically for first and second grade because my state, Pennsylvania, doesn’t require portfolios until age 8, but I did leave some reminders on those pages if you would like to keep a portfolio.

Your child just needs basic tools: pencil, scissors, glue, crayons or colored pencils. There are links to “materials needed” lists at the top of each course page. I talk about putting something in your “Bible notebook” or something similar. I have all of my child’s work in one binder. I have dividers for English, History, Science, Math, Other. They need to keep their papers somewhere. My oldest has composition notebooks for a few subjects. They will need to write things in their “notebooks” sometimes, which can just be lined paper or notebooking pages in their binders. Use separate binders, keep it all together, whatever, just keep it organized so that they can find their work.

The grade “levels” cover math, English, computer and “thinking.” English covers reading, spelling, vocabulary, grammar, creative and non-fiction writing. I would say not all years are equal in their devotion to spelling, vocabulary and grammar. Spelling is covered the least. There is no weekly spelling list. That’s not how I do things. They learn phonics and do copy work and when they are older, I just visit it from time to time. Vocabulary comes from the books they are reading. Again, it’s not a weekly list or something. It’s just here and there as we come across great words in our reading. Grammar follows more of a guideline. Each year I introduce a part of speech and review the others. They also work on sentence structure each year, getting more and more complex as they get older. Capitalization and punctuation is also done each year to varying degrees.

The program years are split into two levels. Level L is the lower level for grade levels one through four. Level M is the middle level for grade levels five through eight. The high school courses are housed at allinonehighschool.com.

It is set up this way so that all of your children can study the same things at the same time, everyone in your family should use the same program year. I just let my first grader study whatever he finds interesting from what the others are doing.

If you go to a link and it says that the page isn’t found or it opens up to the wrong website, please email me or post it on the facebook support group. If the page opens but the game or video isn’t loading, make sure you have installed and updated your Java, Flash and Shockwave players. If the page says that it’s under construction, we’ll probably just wait until it’s back and not switch it. If you are using an ipad, you will need an application to allow you to use flash files.

Finally, here is a Daily Progress Chart that you can print out and check off each day to keep track of where you are.

(Hint: to make the font bigger or smaller on your screen try hitting ctrl + or ctrl -)

Frequently Asked Questions

There is also a Facebook Group where you can ask questions. On the group page you can also find links to groups for the individual levels of the curriculum and a group that shares extra resources they use with their children. I do not supplement the curriculum, and I don’t believe there is a need to. The main group page is for EP only and not to share about other resources. I want to keep it Easy Peasy and don’t want anyone (or myself) overwhelmed with the endless influx of “great” resources, even if they are free.

  1. Thank you so much for your time and effort. When I saw this on freehomeschooldeals.com/ I felt such a wave of relief rush over me. I’ve been praying for the Lord to lead me in what to teach my upcoming 5th and 7th graders. I’m not in a position to buy curriculum and I feel great anxiety when I flip through the catalogs. My stepdaughter, upcoming 4th grader, will probably stay with us some this summer. If she is here when we start, she will also get some “homeschool” time. I would love to help her get a head start for school in the fall. Thank you so much!!!

    • You are welcome! I hope it’s just what’s needed.

    • You are in the same boat we are! Prayers going your way for a little relief! It’s not that it’s too expensive, because the cost of curriculum is about what we pay in lunch money every few months… but coming up with it all at once to buy for three kids is insane!!!

  2. Thank you SO SO much for all your sweat, blood and tears you put into this! As a new homeschool mom with 3 kids, you have completely saved my life (and my financial dilemma!) with posting this! We have been hit with every possible catastrophe that could happen over the past 4 months and it’s going to be a while until we recover… so you just saved me over $600 in 3rd grade and 5th grade curriculum, a friend gave me the 8th grade SOS… but I will never be able to thank you enough for this, it’s a fabulous thing you’ve done for many people!!!

    • You are welcome. You don’t need to thank me “enough” just praise God for always providing our every need!

  3. I have been wondering what to do for language arts for my 2nd grader and am super excited to have found this website — not to mention the computer portion as well! Thank you so much and God bless!

  5. This actually looks really cool! I am a little confused on the levels and all that but I am really enjoying poking around! You have done a wonderful job, really superb! I would not mind a little more hand holding as far as exactly what we click on to use, it is pretty confusing. It would be wonderful if it were organized by grade and had a drop down line up of choices for each grade. Like, for example, 4th grade and here are all of the subjects, right here, for 4th grade etc. I am loving this and will be telling others about it. Have a blessed day, you have really blessed our family and wallets (which have been really empty and thin and appreciate your hard work!)

    • The levels are the grade levels, but you should use the readings to decide what level to use. Once you choose your level, all you have to do is go to day 1 on that level. That’s it. Just click through the lessons for the day. The next day go to day 2 and repeat!

      • Also, the science, history, etc. are not done by grade. There is an intermediate level and an elementary level. It is really simple. Just give it a try.

  6. I absolutely love the way you have put the language arts portion together. We will definitely be using it for many years to come. Thank you so much.

  8. You are such a blessing!!!! I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate you sharing your gift as a very experienced homeschooling parent with the rest of the homeschooling community, and for FREE!!! This is just simply remarkable! Upon deciding to home school our son, I have been a bit overwhelmed… yet excited… with attempting to sift through all of the curriculum options. Should we choose an online option? Do we join a co-op? I consulted with several of my teacher friends. They were not to sure what to tell me on the lines of curriculum as it is selected for them in the public realm. The only curriculum advise I was given was from a retired math teacher friend of mine. He suggested the Saxon Math program. I just received it in the mail yesterday and it seems PERFECT! I also stumbled upon Xtramath.com which will be irreplaceable for math fact mastery. Again, thanks soooo much for your gift! Blessings! :-))

(the structure it brings is what we need for now, but as the kids get older this may change))..this site has made my decision so much easier! can not say thank you enough

  11. This is sooo wonderful! Thank you! I’m a brand new homeschooling mom that pulled my 6th grader out of public school a couple weeks ago. I also have an early preschooler at home. But since the year already started and this was unexpected, I didn’t know what to do! I’ve spent countless hours researching the internet, joining groups and message boards, etc.. and I’ve seen your curriculum referenced a few times. I’m going to use most of it, and just wanted to let you know you’ve saved me a lot of time, money, and peace of mind! You have helped me become confident that I can do this! Next year, I’m just going to come straight here for every subject/topic/lesson! :)

    • Here’s my quote from the site:

      “This is a Christian curriculum. Not everything is overtly Christian, but I do point to the Bible from time to time in literature, science, history, etc. I also believe in a literal six day creation. I do choose to use materials that talk about millions of years because it is what’s available, and it’s useful for our children to know what’s out there so they can be intelligent in a response to it. I do address it to varying degrees when it comes up.”

      So, they will be reading things that are not by Christians. When we do dinosaurs, the older students read something by Ken Ham. The younger students read about what are likely dinosaurs in the Bible. You can go to the biology page or ancient history page to see how I introduce the year and discuss the issue of the beginning of time.

      So, take a look and see what you think. I don’t teach evolution at all in first through eighth. It’s just that some sites do mention millions of years.

  14. Hi. I’m really looking forward to using this curriculum but I have a question. I’m kinda confused…should I be using a grade level (one, five, etc.) AND a program of study (year one, two..)?
    Thanks so much.

    • All you need to do is decide on the a grade level and which program year you will study. Your children will just go to their grade level. On their grade level page they will learn math, English, computer and “thinking.” Their daily grade level assignment will tell them to click on what program year they are studying. They will click on “year 1″ or whatever. The link they click on will take them to their lessons for Bible, history, science, music, art and PE.

      Your kids only need to go to their level and find what day they are on. They just need to click from there and they will get all of their lessons and assignments.

  16. Hi, I am a new homeschooling mom. I decided to take my kids out of public school due to the violence that has been occuring recently. 2 of my 3 children are school aged. One is in 6th grade and the other is in 3rd. I know that this site doesnt offer 3rd grade so what would you recommend to be used for 3rd? Also, since it is halfway through the year, should I just pick up in the middle of the year and finish the remainder? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for this site! God Bless!

    January 2, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    • I’m sorry for the delay, maybe you found me on facebook and asked there. All my wordpress alerts were going to spam and I had no idea. Third grade is now available. Some people start at day 1 since they have the freeedom to as homeschoolers :) If it’s important to you, you can start midway. Take a look at the individual course pages to see what’s covered to see if you think it would be okay to jump in the middle.

    • It’s easier for me to plan their school day this way, working at night and early morning, instead of trying to tell each kid what they need to do during the day. At one point I was writing out their assignments each day in a notebook and bookmarking websites they had to use each day. I realized I would just have to do it all over again next time. This way I have it done for the next kid!

  24. I’m in tears right now as I read over your page…thinking that this may become my life in the near future. My four year old was diagnosed with Autism in 2011, and I am having such a conflict with a few things related to her being in the public school system. The schedule, the lack of understanding, the lack of attention to individual instruction, the teacher shortage, the counterproductive teacher to student ratios, the lack of services to accommodate our disability needs, the risk for bullying if I’m not at the school everyday with her (which I am with my 2yr old), the lack of supervision (she left the room without their knowledge and was found in the halls downstairs by the exit…I had left for a doctors appointment for my 2yr old, they gave her peanut butter which sent her to ICU), …I could go on and on. I am getting so stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious thinking about her and school. I don’t know what to do. I have never thought about homeschooling before and don’t know anyone who has done it, as it is practically taboo in my culture. Thanks for your efforts, transparency, and willingness to offer this free to us all. With everything going on (my car just died…we haven’t attended school in over a week, I can’t work…so financial issues are overwhelming, being a single Mom of three..2 with special needs, etc. etc), stumbling upon this opportunity is a breathe of much needed fresh air! Thank you, thank you, thank you…,this page gives me hope that things could get easier. Sorry for the long post.

Needless to say our school year has never quiet gotten off the ground. We tried SOS but she just really didnt like it. She desires to be more ‘on her own’ with her schoolwork and I believe this site will do that for her! How is you new baby? We are praying for her and you and your husband.

  31. This is our first week homeschooling my 7 year old granddaughter who is in 2nd grade. When we go through the daily lesson where it says what year are you studying it has 2 and 3 but you cannot select it. Is it because those subjects are for all those grade levels? And we would just select either 1 or 4? Thanks

    Geneva Woodward

    February 1, 2013 at 12:06 am

    • Those subjects are coming. I actually have year 2 complete except for Bible. Those links will be coming soon. Year 3 I have not created yet. They will cycle through those four years of subjects in elementary school, middle school and then in high school.

  34. My son (15) and daughter (9) started yesterday & loved it. I have been homeschooling 5 years . We have always kept it eclectic and enjoyed every part of the experience with co-ops and field trips. I have been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in July 2012. Things have been overwhelming and a friend shared your program with me. My favorite part (besides easy &free) Is the Bible & program years keep my children on the same track so we can study the same subject. We have done Konos several years for that reason. I start radiation in a few weeks and this has given me a peace on my journey. Several have questioned why I would homeschool when I am ill and because I am ill reinforces the reason why to enjoy my children and spend the time God intended with them. My prognosis is positive God is good and faithful. Praying for your baby & family. May God continue to bless you and your family.
