If there’s one thing home-schoolers love more than free resources, it’s sharing information on those free resources with everyone which why I love the home-schooling community. This week, I heard about a great website, Funnix, that is offering for a limited time, free downloads of their beginning math and reading programs. There’s no catch and a quick google search will show that Funnix has a great reputation in the home-schooling community. I think their downloads will be helpful, however, for even if you are not home-schooling because it is an easy way to supplement your child’s education after school. I am a big supporter of active after-schooling because I don’t think it’s a good idea to rely entirely on schools to educate our children.
Here’s what Funnix has to say about their free offer:
- Funnix Beginning Reading and Funnix Beginning Math are very user friendly computer-based programs. A narrator directs the activities in each 25-35-minute lesson. A child or a small group of children watch the computer screen with a parent or teacher. The children answer questions the narrator presents. The parent or teacher reinforces correct responses and directs the program to repeat parts that were difficult for the children.
Signing up for the free download is simple. All you do is fill out a form and submit it. You will then receive an email with all instructions on how to receive the program. No hidden charges, gimmicks, or costs for handling and shipping.
Happy Freebie Friday! I hope you’ll find this resource helpful.
