SchoolhouseTeachers.com ~ Review
Over the past month, I have been using and browsing the website SchoolhouseTeachers.com. Since the last time I did a review on this website in December 2012, so much has changed. There is such an abundance of great courses, planners, and resources. This site offers a Yearly Membership to homeschoolers who are wanting online classes, supplemental items, or just wanting some encouragement through the many articles.
There is so much information on this site, I'm not sure where to even begin to tell you about it all!
Let's start with the new members hub. This is the place to go to find out what SchoolhouseTeachers has to offer. Now that you have a basic overview of the site, you want to think about what courses you want your child to take.
How old is your child? SchoolhouseTeachers offers courses for preschoolers all the way up to adults. You can access the courses by subject or by grade level to find what you are looking for.
What next? Want to meet the teachers before picking out a course? You can find a list of the teachers here. After you have picked out a course or multiple courses for your child, you can then head over to the checklist page and download some checklists for the course(s) your child is working on.
Do you want to see a course I found for my children to take? As I have been browsing and clicking over the last month, I stumbled upon an excellent family fitness and nutrition course. I have been looking for something that I can do with my children and a course that includes all four of my children and I know I have found that in this course.
How will I use this course in our homeschool day? I will do this course with my children in the afternoon. Most days we have our core subjects finished by lunch and I want my kids to be active during the afternoon instead of just sitting around watching television or playing on their tablets.
Some other courses I found that are of interest to me and my children are as follows:
~ Apologetics: Creation vs Evolution (my 8th grader wants to take this)
~Dinosaurs and the Bible (my 7th and 8th graders picked this one)
~Elementary Art (my 5th grade daughter loves art)
~American History for Beginners (for my four year old who will be entering K5 soon)
Those are just a few that we picked together and are looking forward to starting these courses soon.
What else does the site offer? Free printables, certificates, planners, record keeping, and e-books. You can also download monthly menus for dinner ideas. You also get access to over 10,000 streaming videos through RightNow Media.
