PhotobucketI've recently received a subscription to Schoolhouseteachers.com and am loving it! With the increased use of technology in the classroom and in homeschooling, many websites dedicated to providing parents and teachers with teaching materials and curriculum have come to the surface. I still consider myself a homeschooling newbie, testing out the waters with my methods and sometimes am overwhelmed with the variety of options! I wasn't sure what would make The Old Schoolhouse's curriculum, Schoolhouseteachers.com stand out from the rest, but let me tell you, it does! It has qualities unique to what I've seen so far and I am excited to be able to add this to my curriculum.

I was pleasently surprised that the cost of membership is only
 $5.95 monthly. Your first month only costs $1! 
(org $64.26)


You are provided with UNLIMITED access to over 25 subjects ranging from Pre-K to High School. What I love about the program is that you are not simply provided with a simple PDF download. You actually get the sense that you are a part of a class. For some classes the lessons are posted weekly. Other classes provide you with teaching videos and others not only provide you with their personally written worksheets and lessons, but provide links and resources throughout the web for further study. Other resources include lapbooks, writing prompts, and unit studies.

I've enjoyed using the grammar worksheets for my child in the lower elementary level. Since it is the Christmas season, I love how they incorporated the story of the Birth of Jesus with learning about nouns. I've used it as a supplement to our current curriculum but there are plenty of materials this could easily be used as a full curriculum.
Some of the subjects found in the dailies section include:

~ Spelling Lists 
~ Writing
~ Copywork
~ This Day in History
~ Math
~ Games
~ Astronomy
 and more!!!

~ The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
~ Access to video/audio recordings of Schoolhouse Expos
~ Schoolhouse Planners
~ Monthly Bonus E-Books

This curriculum is actually a division of  The Old Schoolhouse which is a FREE monthly digital magazine featuring popular homeschool authors such as Brian Ray, Jessica Hulcy and Diana Waring.

I would highly recommend this curriculum as a great choice for my Thrifty Mom readers. The price can't be beat for the quality of the product received.
