Homeschooling Resources

Last updated September 22, 2020.

 

Welcome to our homeschooling page! We have worked hard to compile a list of free resources that all of the Leeds and the Thousand Islands community can use for aiding in distance learning or homeschooling curriculum. All links listed here are FREE to use, and all materials are FREE to reproduce. Don’t have a printer at home? Let us know what you need printed and we can get you a copy at any of our 3 branches!

Our Free Digital and Printable Resources

Follow the Google Drive link above (click it!) to access our free printable resource collection, guides to success, and more. We have organized the documents by grade, including Pre-K, K, and 1 through 6. All of these materials are free to print from our library branches, just give us notification of what you need and when you will pick it up so that we can have the package ready!

Don’t forget to ask for accompanying books or movies to expand the learning further! We have a large selection available to make your learning experience easier and more accessible.

Learn At Home – Ontario Provincial Government (Free)
