Where has SchoolhouseTeachers.com been all my life? As a second year homeschooling mom I need all of the help I can get. When I was asked to review this website I was a little apprehensive. My children are younger and we don't do a lot of online schooling because they don't know how to use the computer. But, after exploring the website for the past few weeks and letting my oldest two sons use it, I really like it a lot. I received the Yearly Membership for this review.
Here is an introduction so you can see for yourself what this is all about
SchoolhouseTeachers.com is an online learning program for all ages. From Pre-K to high school, there is something for everyone. Here are the categories you can choose from with a paid subscription:
- Middle/High school
- Course Offerings
Since I am a homeschooling mom I started with the teachers section. This was such a wonderful resource for me. It is filled with archived lessons from different courses. There are lists of books to read aloud to your students, video math lessons for all ages, lapbooking how-to's, and so much more. I am enjoying this section very much. It has helped me with ideas for my students as well as helped me to learn a few things myself.
Next, I went on to the Pre-k/elementary section since those are the ages of my students. My oldest son, "Bear", is six and in between Kindergarten and 1st grade (you know us homeschoolers don't really have "grades"). My middle son, "Ducky", is four and in Pre-k. The classes offered here are way more than I could ever have imagined. My oldest son loved the art classes. He would draw all day if I let him. Ducky loved the Bug Science class. He loves bugs (his fourth birthday party was a bug party). I did have to help them both with the computer but once I got them on the page they were off on their own.
There are SO many topics covered on SchoolhouseTeachers.com to even list here. Some of my family's favorites were:
- Art Techniques
- Bug Science
- Sewing (okay, this was just me)
- Schoolhouse Preschool (for Ducky)
- Charlotte Mason Preschool (we use a CM approach to homeschooling)
- American History: Colonization (we live in a very historic town)
Okay, I will admit I only looked at the Middle/High School section. But, it was well worth it. I plan to use some of the courses myself. Haha. The courses that got my attention were ASL Adventure, Sewing, Classical History, Creative Writing, and Home Economics. I spent a bit of time exploring each of these courses and they are very well put together. I can't wait to start some of them soon (while on Christmas break!).
The SchoolhouseTeachers.com has a category called "Dailies". It contains that days courses and classes. It has everything from ABC with ME to copywork, to math. I checked this section each day to see new things that were posted. I enjoyed discovering what new things the writers posted.
For the grown-ups there are several great resources:
- Whole Foods Cooking
- Monthly Reading Lists
- Monthly Menu
- Charlotte Mason Homeschooling
- Back issues of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine (digital edition)
- Schoolhouse Planners
Speaking of planners, there are a few to choose from. I have purchased these in the past and they are so wonderful. These are the downloadable versions but they are worth it. The different planners are: the Schoolhouse Planner, the Special Learners Planner, Primary Planner, Intermediate Planner, and the High School Planner. If you become a member you can get the planners with your paid subscription.
I am so excited to continue using SchoolhouseTeachers.com with my children. They love to learn and using the computer is a good leaning experience as well. You can also use SchoolhouseTeachers.com on the go. As long as you have internet access or WiFi you can use it on any device.
You can visit them on other social media websites as well:
