I have a confession to make. Even though the digital age is here, I pine over physical books still.
However, moving overseas certainly had me thinking outside of the box when I had to assess my homeschool library “on the go”. All homeschool resources and clothes had to fit in two suitcases when we moved here to Ecuador. For me, that meant very few physical books and resources.
I scrambled to find resources that were online or downloaded in a digital format so I could print when I moved overseas.
Some items are free and others cost but I really wanted to put a lot of them in one spot as a reference. Instead of dividing by subject, I divided by age level because many of them have multiple subjects and topics.
