One of the biggest challenges you can face as a homeschool parent, is bringing together a curriculum plan that meets the needs of your students. Varying learning styles, wide age spans, time constraints and financial challenges can really up the difficulty. Thankfully we have access to a wealth of resources available online. Accessing those online resources just became a lot easier.
SchoolhouseTeachers.com, formerly Teacher’s Toolbox, from The Old Schoolhouse magazine has been restructured and expanded to meet the range of needs of homeschool families. From preschool to high school; literature to math, Schoolhouse Teachers has something for everyone!
Due to the amount of resources on Schoolhouse Teachers, there is no way I can cover them all. Daily, weekly and monthly resources are provided by some of the most well known names for homeschool curricula. I am going to highlight a few areas and then you can grab a glass of liquid refreshment and browse around!
Daily Grammar – Every day a new grammar lesson is available on the site. From capitalization review to contractions, the concise grammar lessons are perfect for a bit of grammar review. If you use the Charlotte Mason approach to homeschool but have a child who enjoys a worksheet, these are perfect. Perhaps you are shifting gears with your curriculum, the daily grammar is perfect to keep your child’s grammar skills in use but not overwhelming them in the process.
Literature – This is a monthly literature study. The current study is focused on The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander. Adam Andrews will take your child through a study of great works of literature. Learning about setting, plot, conflict and more. Questions are provided so as your child reads through the selection, you can have discussions that bring about understanding and knowledge. It can often be overwhelming trying to balance the needs of older students and a helping hand in literature can help ease that struggle.
Reading List – In the Schoolhouse Library section, there is a monthly reading list provided by Michele Miller of TruthQuest History. Providing reading suggestions for all ages, the Reading List makes your next trip to the library a breeze. Offering suggestions in economics, art, leadership and more, the Reading List will offer a wide range of learning for your students!
PreK Activities: Read and Play – Not sure what to do to engage you younger learners? Want some ideas to get you rolling? Read and Play takes delightful picture books such as The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle and give suggestions to make learning fun. From exploring what is growing in your neighborhood to planting your own little seeds, Read and Play helps the busy mom spend some focused time on her little ones.
Membership to Schoolhouse Teachers also gives you a subscription to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine now provided in a digital format. Not only will you enjoy the current month’s magazine, you also have access to past issues. The digital format is colorful and easy to use.
One feature that I must is the school planners that are available with your membership. There are 5 different homeschool planners. Yes, five! They are: Parent Planner, Special Learner Planner, Primary, Intermediate and High School. All have special features that make them suited for a specific level of learning. The planners are so much more than lesson plan templates!
*Articles written to the students
*Bible reading plans
*Goal planning sheets
*Task Analysis cards for building life skills
*Must Know Lists (great for memory work)
And so much more! All five planners are available to download when you subscribe to Schoolhouse Teachers!
