In reviewing the Yearly Membership for SchoolhouseTeachers.com I have to say, it really is amazing. For us we have found SchoolhouseTeachers to be a great resource to help add an extra dimension to our lessons, instead of being the core curriculum for any particular subject. Why not the core curriculum when there are so many options? Great question. Well, because a lot of the lessons are printable lessons with printable directions and teaching material which I knew just wouldn’t work for our family. With having Dyslexia myself and having a son in the same boat, giving him or me for that matter a printed packet lesson and saying go for it just isn’t going to work for us. Sure we both can read however that doesn’t mean we learn at our best by reading. That really is okay though because SchoolhouseTeachers offers sooooo many other options. Both of us are visual learners so we gravitate more toward the video lessons, which there are many of.
How We Use the Site
We have been learning about Joseph in our Bible lessons. We LOVE our Bible curriculum but having a fun video to watch to end our unit on Joseph adds a lot of fun and clarity to what we have been learning about. SchoolhouseTeachers offers so many videos and The Story of Joseph is just one of them. Not only will we be able to sit down and watch the video together, but when we are through watching the video, there is a downloadable sheet of questions we can talk about to review not only the video but our whole unit on Joseph!
Covering health of some sort is required in our state every year. A lot of that is covered naturally when they are little by teaching them to brush their teeth well, how to cook, proper hand washing, etc. However, having something else to add in really helps. While checking out SchoolhouseTeachers I found a great unit for pre-teens on hygiene that we will be starting this coming week with our middle son. Having a place to go for him to hear again from someone different how important hygiene is I think will help it stick. If you are looking for more than just a single unit for health, don’t worry this course actually has 6 units. With SchoolhouseTeachers you can pick and choose what works for you.
What about holidays? Do you ever find yourself trying to figure out what you can add in to help cover an upcoming holiday? I know I do. This year I found a great, quick study on how the New Year is celebrated all over the world. I was able to print out a packet for each of my kiddos that had info about 10 different countries from around the world, puzzles, a fill in the blank worksheet, acrostic poem writing worksheet, and a few coloring pages, among other things. For our final day before Christmas break I brought out the packets and we all piled on the couch to read and discuss what these countries do to celebrate the upcoming New Year. The kids really seemed to enjoy learning about how things are done so differently around the world. When we were done talking through the 10 countries we went over the fill in the blank worksheet together, using it as a review of the readings. I had the kids pick 2 puzzles and 1 coloring page to complete for their homework. They loved that they got to choose what they could do. All in all, it was a nice way to close out the final day before Christmas break without a lot of work on my part trying to pull it all together. Thank you SchoolhouseTeachers!
And So Much More
We are just beginning to find out all that this amazing website offers as this is one of those sites that keeps surprising me. There is so much to do and learn on this site that I don’t think we will ever get bored with lack of content here. It is a place I will keep coming to for fun add-ins to our lessons and for help in covering all the extras that go beyond the basic core subjects. While for us SchoolhouseTeachers won’t be used as our core curriculum, it could be for you. As you can see they have so much to offer, so no matter how you learn, you can and will find many things to make your membership worth the money.
Added Bonus to Membership
Back to those videos for a minute. I have to tell you about something else amazing that SchoolhouseTeachers offers.A Right Now Media subscription! If you aren’t familiar with this amazing resource than you most likely do not go to a mega church. No big deal. Let me explain. Right Now Media is kind of like a Netflix for digital church learning resources. For example, have you ever been to a small group bible study and watched a short video before diving into that week’s content? Well that video had to come from somewhere. Some churches buy a dvd copy and some subscribe to Right Now Media. A subscription to SchoolhouseTeachers.com gets your family a subscription to Right Now Media which is just incredible! We have our Right Now Media account connected to our Roku device and are able to watch the videos right on our T.V. Hubby can watch videos to help him become a better church leader, the kids can watch bible based cartoons and I can dive into a women’s bible study all from the privacy of my living room!
