Schoolhouse Teachers is a website devoted to all things homeschool. It is an expansion on the Teachers Toolbox website from The Old Schoolhouse magazine. I loved Teachers Toolbox, but I love Schoolhouse Teachers even more!!
The website features content from experts like Diana Waring, Kim Kautzer, and Malia Russell, that is updated on a weekly, monthly or daily basis. There are lesson plans you can print out and use right away!! As a member, you also get access to the latest TOS Schoolhouse planners (I got my first one in 2010, and I have loved them ever since!!) as well as access to ebooks, thematic units, and digital back issues of the magazine. Honestly, I have to be careful or I could spend days at a time just reading those!
Do you like lapbooking? We do!! Schoolhouse Teachers has lapbooking lessons you can download and print every month. The focus for July is “Summer Safety”, in June, it was the painter, Raphael. Being able to just log in and print out the lessons each week was a huge convenience!!
Schoolhouse Teachers also includes downloadble lessons in many subject areas, including economics, high school math, literature, art and even chemistry! The chemistry lessons, written by Joey Hadja, include a lesson plan for you (featuring an activity to illustrate the concept using household items), a reading section, practice problems and even a test!!
Want more? Schoolhouse Teachers has it!! In addition to all of the content available, the website also has recipes (beef and black bean tacos, cobbler…yum!!), a suggested monthly reading list, a section on homemaking, “this day in history” information, and so much more!! My boys have been looking forward to the Olympics all summer and we are currently enjoying working through the Summer Olympics activities on the website! I know, it sounds almost too incredible to be true, but what else would you expect from The Old Schoolhouse?? Don’t believe me, check it out for yourself, samples are available here:
Since we are currently waiting to start our official school year until we get a little more money together for curriculum, I am using Schoolhouse Teachers with my boys to keep us learning right now. The best thing about it? A subscription will only cost you $5.95 per month!! For all that is included, that is a fantastic price! This is one resource I would not want to live without.
