Review : Schoolhouse Teachers site Review is the homeschooler's online educational resource site.  It’s your one-stop helper-shop, with aids such as: printables, daily lessons, lapbooks, free e-books, and conference recordings on various homeschool topics prepared by recognized homeschool leaders.  You have access to daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly lesson plans by some of the best from within the homeschooling community.  Homeschool moms, you finally get a teacher’s aide with Schoolhouse Teachers!

If that weren’t enough, there are some seriously cool bonuses to having a Yearly Membership. One is a free monthly e-book…a real book, not just a short story.  There’s also the Schoolhouse Library, with reading lists, beautiful downloadable copybooks, and inspirational articles. There are sections on homemaking, homeschool living, monthly menu plans, and discounts for a multitude of vendors–there’s even a section just for craft ideas for the kids!  All of The Old Schoolhouse magazine back issues are online well, so that you can access the information as it becomes relevant to your school.  

The site includes both online and downloadable components – courses such as Lapbooking, Figures in History, and Literature are downloadable and printable in nature, whereas Physical Education, Guitar, and Animated Reading are best completed online.

I found the site simple and easy to navigate.  Since I was trying out this site in the weeks just before Christmas, I spent some time looking for holiday and winter specific lessons – and there were quite a few!  One of the first things that caught my eye was under the Freebies section, where you could print off an entire spelling unit that was Christmas-themed.   Here is a sampling of what I was able to find in less than three minutes, to plan out an entire week that included lessons for all of my students:

·         The Gift of the Magi, by O’Henry (complete story, unit & Lapbooking components)
·         A Christmas Carol (Hands-On History – complete unit)
·         Several writing prompts in Daily Writing
·         A Winter’s Tale by Shakespeare (Simply Shakespeare – lessons for two age groups & drama activity)
·         Gifts & Winter – several cross-curricular winter activities
·         Central Park in Winter – Everyday Easels cross-curricular unit for several age groups
·         Winter Snowman Scene – crafty section

Who doesn’t have to spend all weekend planning now??  ME!  They’ve done it for me….just go to the ‘search box’ and type in a keyword, and they will pull up all the lessons ever posted regarding that topic.  Easy peasy!
I also really appreciated the extras, like the reading e-books (which helped my struggling reader), Schoolhouse Expo seminars, homesteading lessons for adults, and member discounts.  Given the time of year, I especially enjoyed the “Twelve Days of Christmas Encouragement” section for homeschooling moms.  With the yearly membership, I was also able to pick up all of the past issues of “Molly Green Magazine” for FREE!
