Thanks for visiting! Hello my name is Aadel and I created Homeschool Commons to serve as a central juncture for finding free resources to use in personal and commercial ventures. There are other amazing websites that are directed towards homeschoolers which organize and/or provide free resources for use in educating your children. This site is not trying to reproduce the efforts of others. Instead, this site attempts to provide a clear distinction between material that is free for personal use, and that which is truly liberated.

At, I focus on high quality, 100% free educational finds. I post for the children: preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school. I also post for homeschoolers, teachers, students, and families who love to learn together. My goal is to prove a high quality education can be free. I don’t have a problem with paying for education. I’m just trying to remove one obstacle - finances - from those who think they “can’t” give - or get - a good education.

Memorizing dates and trying to learn about people who once lived…just did not appeal to me. As a Mom of three children witnessing a dramatic shift in our American culture and a desire to grow my children’s interest and love for History, I have spent the last few years seeking resources to truly pull them in and help them larn our true American Heritage.

Reviewing and renewing my mind and my thoughts based on American History has enlightened me of the true meaning behind the quote by George Santayana: “Those who can not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Based on that, it is my desire to provide you with a great list of resources for your home that provide good, accurate information based on American History or rather, the History of the United States of America. Various. Homeschool Goals Forms. Goals can be made for short and for long periods of time.

Not only can you make academic goals but you can make a record of other types of goals such as character goals, personal growth, personal improvement, etc. Make goals and objectives at the beginning of the year and during the year based on your child's work and work habits.

How does one memorize a piece of music? Every music student/musician encounters this. Whether it is that Classical Piano Sonata, Rock song, or the chord changes to a jazz tune, memory seems to "fail" us at one point or another. Or is it us that "fail" our memory? (Please see "(Perfect) Practice makes Perfect") There are 4 main ways that the human mind/body tends to remember: Physical/muscularAural/audioVisual/photographicAnalytical/theoretical Physical This is often known as "muscle memory". Repetition is key to strengthen muscle memory. Aural This is the "remembering how the song sounds like" method.
