We were recently given the wonderful opportunity to review SchoolhouseTeachers.com, a fantastic online resource for homeschoolers. We are currently using the Yearly Membership Option which is an amazing value at only $139 per year!
SchoolhouseTeachers.com is a treasure trove of lessons that are made up by educators which makes the job of the homeschooling mom (or dad:) so much easier. These lessons cover over 50 subjects and span grade levels from Pre-K to high school. New lessons and teachers are added each month. The teachers are highly qualified and I feel confident using their lessons as part of our curriculum. Many of the lessons can be used as full courses of study for each subject or you could just pick and choose lessons to supplement your current curriculum. One of the things I love about SchoolhouseTeachers.com is that it has classes that I don't feel competent enough to teach like second languages and musical instruments. The lessons are set up in a very user-friendly format so you can either teach from them or your student can do the lesson independently.
The lessons I chose to use with my kiddos were very thorough and engaging. I've actually switched our Writing, History, Science and Geography curriculum since joining SchoolhouseTeachers.com and the kids and I are very excited about the new semester:)
I love that the Science lessons are based on experiments. We've been doing a lot of book work for Science, so this semester should be interesting with so many hands-on experiments! I've also been looking for an engaging world geography curriculum and I think "Asia: Safari" will be a great start in that subject for my young learners. This set of lessons covers a different country each week and looks really fantastic! It includes lessons on the geography, culture, vocabulary and science for each country and the kiddos are loving it so far.
We also added a few extras from the "Dailies" section like "Ditch the Desk" lessons, which are fun unit studies designed to encourage hands-on learning which my kids LOVE! The Everyday Games section is a super fun way to add skill builder activities to our day. We're also excited about the "Figures in History" and "Everyday Explorers" lessons. Their are lessons for USA, Canada and Australia in the "Everyday Explorers" section and these lessons are so informative! For handwriting practice we will be utilizing the "Everyday Copywork" section. There are also lessons for spelling, grammar, astronomy and much more in the "Dailies" section.
Other perks of joining SchoolhouseTeachers.com (as if you need any other incentive more than these wonderful lesson plans:) are access to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine online issues, a ton of homeschooling planners to choose from, free monthly eBooks, a membership to Applecore (an online homeschool tracking software) and more.
You can become a member of SchoolhouseTeachers.com for $3 for your first month, then $12.95 per month after that . You can save 10%, if you purchase a year-long membership for $139. In my opinion, it is well worth it!
SchoolhouseTeachers.com gives you access to a variety of samples, so if this sounds like a program that might be a good fit for your family, check them out to get a better idea of what the website provides.
