(Inside: Finding homeschool learning resources can be pretty difficult, but it doesn’t have to be! Check out how to find large family learning resources here!)
As a large family homeschool, finding the perfect learning resources can be pretty difficult.
One year we tried to get individual activities for each of the kids, just because each of them had individual needs. But let me tell you, that did NOT work!
See, it was important that we meet each of our kids learning styles of course. But it was also important to keep some serious balance so that I wasn’t spending a fortune on the curriculum I didn’t have time to teach anyways.
This year would be different, I said. I didn’t make a curriculum list. I learned to embrace the chaos, and I learned that our family really thrived when we worked together.
But back to my point. Finding those large family learning resources that allow us to learn together as a family can be pretty hard, which is why I’m so excited that I found a super simple solution!

How to Find Large Family Learning Resources
We were given the chance to try out Learnamic, a search engine specifically to help connect homeschoolers with the learning resources that they’re searching for!
It has seriously changed how I look at planning and finding learning resources for my homeschool, and I believe it can help you too!
Why It’s Hard to Find Large Family Learning Resources
First, why do we need a separate search engine to help us find large family learning resources in the first place?
Because it’s HARD to find large family learning resources, guys. Trust me.
I’m a girl whose job revolves around the internet and still it isn’t always easy for me to find the exact resource I’m looking for.
When I’m looking to find a learning resource for our family, I want to see all the things so that I can narrow them down myself and decide which ones will work best.
What Makes It a “Large Family Learning Resource”
Okay, but what exactly is a “Large Family Learning Resource”? I mean, it’s not like they just have a Large Family Approved label on them…
This is going to vary a bit, family to family. When I’m looking for a large family learning resource, these are a few things I look for:
- Designed for (or can be adapted to) several ages.
- Collaborative in nature.
- In a subject that more than one of my kiddos is working on.
We loved this art channel as a large family learning resource because it offered different tutorials for kids kindergarten-8th grade.
Each of my kiddos could follow the tutorials, and we could easily adapt them up or down depending on which kids were participating.
The Simplest Way to Find Large Family Learning Resources
We found those art videos with Learnamic, an online search engine specifically designed to connect you with the learning resources that you need.
Whether you’re looking for fun science activities for a unit study (like these astronomy resources) or you need some supplements for subjects your kiddos need extra help with, you can find it easily.
How to Use Learnamic to Find Learning Resources
Using Learnamic to find learning resources is super easy. You just go to the Learnamic Search Engine here and type in a subject like “math” or “astronomy” or “art”.
Then on the left side of the page, check-mark the grades that you’re searching for. You can also filter by price, topic, format, or properties like whether it’s common core aligned or religious.
Then you just look through the resources and pick the ones that you want to use in your homeschool! It’s seriously that simple.
Oh, and if you write a review on any learning resource listed in Learnamic between now and December 10th 2017, you can be entered to win an Amazon gift card! See the full details and rules here.
