I really love our homeschool curriculum, but there are moments when I feel the need to supplement, or just want to try something a little different. Sometimes a particular concept may not click with my girls, or perhaps we just need a break from the ordinary. SchoolhouseTeachers.com
from The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
is a great resource which can act as an entire program or be used to supplement your current program. It has material for all ages, pre-k through high school. For $5.95 per month (The first month is only $1.00!) or $64.26 for the year, this is really an incredible investment.
In addition to lessons on every subject there is a wealth of information and encouragement for homeschool parents. For each month of membership you gain access to a new set of E-Books including unit studies, resource books, and encouragement for homeschooling parents. Twelve new books are available after each month of membership. Wow! I have gained a new appreciation for these resources as we have chosen to stay on the homeschooling path indefinitely. We’re open to God’s leading and for now we are being led forward. I appreciate knowing I have these types of resources at my disposal.
The site is very neatly organized by grade level and subject making it extremely easy to navigate. The only difficulty is deciding which content to use first! I was immediately drawn to the math section because math is not my strongest area. I appreciate so much about this section! My daughter enjoys using these worksheets to practice her math facts. She’s smiling because she was excited that she knew all of the facts she was practicing!
Here are just a few things I’m liking…
1. Each month there are lessons for several grade levels
2. There are videos explaining the concept
3. Practice worksheets are included along with the videos
Another favorite area is the Dailies section. Here you will find daily work ready to print. There are daily exercises for grammar, math, writing, handwriting, spelling, science, geography, and history. In addition you can also find recipes here. What busy mom couldn’t use that?
Also in the Dailies section are some fun printable games for my girls. This is a new feature and the current games are focusing on phonics and spelling patterns. This is perfect for my oldest girls who are working on spelling patterns in words currently. They had a lot of fun with these word searches!
The girls really liked this word search style game. They took turns looking for Consonant-Vowel-Consonant words.
Honestly this site has more than I can cover in this review! Click the picture below to see some samples!
