Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Looking for Homeschool Information? This is the place. Take a moment to subscribe to my blog so you do not miss a thing.
You will want a cup of coffee/tea before you sit down to glean all the wonderful information the SchoolhouseTeachers.com has to offer. Warning: you will need to carve out plenty of time in your schedule because once you begin navigating through the website; you will not want to stop. This SchoohouseTeachers.com Review will whet your appetite for what is in store for you. I have divided this review into sections in order to give you a glimpse of what you will find at the SchoolhouseTeachers.com.
If you have been homeschooling for any length of time, you have heard about The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. You already know how great it is. Did you know the SchoolhouseTeachers.com is an extension of the magazine? That alone tells you SchoolhouseTeachers.com is of high quality.
The SchoolhouseTeachers.com welcome page gives brief information on what is available on the site. The best thing to do is to go on the site tour. Kendra introduces you to the SchoolhouseTeachers.com via video. The next step is to go to the sign up page to begin your subscription. The SchoolhouseTeachers.com is a membership website and the subscription cost is minimal (more on that later.)
Once you have access to the member’s site, you will be able to see who the teachers are. Diane Warring of Diane Warring Presents, Kim Kautzer of WriteShop, and Malia Russell of Homemaking911.com are just a few of those.
Pre-K/Elementary, Middle School, and High School
There are the usual core courses for each grade level along with electives. You may use these courses as your sole curriculum or as an extension of the curriculum you are currently using.
One of the electives offered is guitar. Now, I was skeptical at first on how someone is able to learn how to play the guitar without a live teacher. Through written instruction, videos, and Skype, it is actually possible.
I became excited when I saw SchoolhouseTeachers.com offers a Career Exploration class. My children are in middle school and high school. My son has no idea what career path he would like to pursue after graduation, while my daughter is looking at three possible careers. The Career Exploration class is an eight-week course I plan on my children taking.
Another course that sparked my interest is the College Course Guidance. The course is for not only the parents, but the students as well. Even elementary students can take this course. The instructor teaches you how to prepare for and pay for college. She also includes links to other helpful websites. Be sure to sign up for the company’s monthly newsletter for even more information. This class is one we will continue until high school graduation.
One of the literature classes is on Treasure Island. My daughter is currently studying this book. The literature class offered through SchoolhouseTeachers.com provides lesson plans with questions about the structure, style, and context of the book along with essay assignments. There are also hands-on activity suggestions and story charts that help to bring the book to life. My daughter is a hands-on type of gal and enjoys projects. One in particular is the watercolor map. The course serves well as additional information for my daughter’s current study of the book.
Assisting the Special Needs child is one of the informational topics in the families’ category. Judith B. Munday, M.A., M.Ed., a Special Needs Educational Consultant, shares how to create an education plan for a special needs/struggling learners, choosing curriculum, adapting instruction, and more.
Do not have time to prepare lessons plans? Do not worry. There are daily lesson plans available for you. A couple of topics are on Shakespeare and Everyday Explorers.
You will not have to worry about missing any of the previous month’s lessons. An excellent feature of the SchoolhouseTeachers.com is the archives. There you will have access to all the earlier lessons. You will also see how far the SchoolhouseTeachers.com has come with the new additions of classes each month.
The SchoolhouseTeachers.com has even more than the categories shown above. I will leave those for you to discover on your own.
Now that you know what the SchoolhouseTeachers.com offers, would you like to know how much it costs? It is a lot less than you may think. Your first month’s subscription is only $1 and after that, it is $5.95 per month!
