I love SchoolhouseTeachers.com which makes me so excited to review the Ultimate Annual Yearly Membership where I can use online courses and electives to my heart's delight. You can download so many courses at SchoohouseTeachers.com, storing them on your computer or just printing as you go. There are also online courses where your children can access the course and teacher on your computer, laptop, or phone. Students are able to go at their own pace. Oh, and did I mention, one family membership includes everyone! That's such a huge savings on curriculum.
At first I felt overwhelmed by all the choices. Should I go to High School Homeschool Courses? Or Elementary Homeschool Courses? Or check out the Middle School Homeschool Courses? Or do I need Homeschool Parent Support?
Where did I go first?
To Preschool Playground of course. After all, I'm a grandmother.
With over 400 options available from preschool to high school and new courses added regularly, I find myself spending hours browsing. It's like being in a homeschool curriculum store. EXCEPT--I can use any curriculum I want to at no extra expense. Wow!
We enjoyed Preventing and Responding to Emergencies, a course for 5th-6th graders teaching them practical ways to help out in emergency situations. Created by homeschool mom Jenny Underwood, there are nine lessons. With practical explanations and instructions, she teaches how to respond to cuts, snake bites, spider bites, hypothermia, broken bones, muscle sprains, poisoning, electric shock, drowning, heat exhaustion, burns, and frostbite. My favorite part was putting together the first aid kit.
My grandsons and I love watching the videos together. Our favorite cartoons are Ollie the Donkey and the Children's Heroes of the Bible series. But, there is so much more in the media section. All kinds of instructional videos abound. I love the art instruction ones! Also, the Drive Thru History videos! Our family loves Dave Stotts and his humorous way of teaching history.
And forget buying a set of encyclopedias if you become a member of SchoolhouseTeachers.com. They have the entire World Book encyclopedia set for you to use at any time. I love it! Though it is a secular product, there is a wealth of information at your fingertips.
Here are some of my favorite resources at SchoolhouseTeachers.com.
The Scope and Sequence Charts are awesome. They answer the question, "What do my children need to know around this age?" They are very thorough and I find myself visiting them often.
There is such a wide variety of Geography courses for every age. I have to confess: this is my number one browsing spot. So many courses, so little time.
Preschool Playground is also a favorite because of my grandchildren. I'm always downloading an activity or fun worksheet to use with the children when they visit. Preschool Playground has everything you need to teach a preschooler, and lots of stuff that is fun, colorful, interactive, and hands-on. This area alone is worth the membership fee.
