Freebie Fridays: Free Catholic Homeschool Curriculum!

This post is the fifth of 7 posts that I’ll be writing this week, as my response to Jen @ Conversion Diary’s 2nd Epic Blogging Challenge. To God be all the glory! 

7 {Homeschooling} Post-5s

 

This is going to be one of those short but sweet posts. Over the course of our homeschool journey, I’ve discovered many different homeschool resources and sites, some of which provide free homeschool curricula. Of these, only the ones listed here are purely Catholic, or at least that’s what it says in their descriptions.

BUT… before we go there, you might want to read this useful article on CatholicSistas: 10 Steps to Selecting a {Catholic} Homeschool Curriculum.

OK, now on to the list!

Mater Amabilis is a Charlotte Mason style curriculum for Catholics. It covers the preschool to eight grade levels. Here’s the description from the website:

Mater Amabilis (MAH-tare Ah-MAH-bee-lease) translated from Latin means Mother Most Lovable and is a title of Our Lady in the Litany of Loreto (Mother Most Amiable). Mary, under the title of Mater Amabilis, is our patron and our model. The inspiration for the name comes from the Catholic parish of the same name in Ambleside, England where Charlotte Mason lived and worked.

The Mater Amabilis curriculum is placed under the patronage of The Blessed Virgin Mary under the title Mater Amabilis and Blessed John Cardinal Newman. We are 100% faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, the Holy Father Pope Francis and the Bishops in communion with him.

St. Thomas School Free Catholic Curriculum is a K-12 curriculum that was put together by a Catholic homeschool mom, Maria Rioux. It is “bare boned” but can be used as a guide for homeschooling families. I originally heard of it here, and you can look at it directly here.

Catholic ABC’s Preschool Curriculum is the FREE abridged version of Lacy Rabideau’s (of Catholic Icing) curriculum of the same name, i.e. Catholic ABC’s (The Book). I have a copy of Lacy’s book and it is really good. The abridged version is useful too. If you have preschool-aged kids, go ahead and check it out.

Free Curricula from Catholic Heritage Curricula (CHC) — This is a collection of free homeschool resources for Catholic families, found on the CHC website. You can take a look at it here.

Do you know of other free homeschool curricula that other homeschoolers might find useful (Catholic or otherwise)? Come share about them in the comments! 🙂 God bless you!
