I shared last January a bit about all of the amazing classes and content included in a SchoolhouseTeachers.com Yearly Membership. Throughout 2017 SchoolhouseTeachers added TONS of new classes and they are currently running an AMAZING sale so I thought it was time for an update.
I have been a member and a teacher (Kindergarten Social Studies) of SchoolhouseTeachers.com for two years but have really only dabbled with the classes for my kids. You can see some of what we have tried here. About a month ago my husband and I made a decision to significantly change up how we are doing school. Part of that decision means we will be utilizing SchoolhouseTeachers as our main source of curriculum. With over 360 courses including almost any high school course you need, there really isn’t a need for any additional curriculum. I’m a bit of a curriculum junky so I will probably purchase additional resources but will draw from SchoolhouseTeachers as our main source and will ALWAYS check what they offer first.
SchoolhouseTeachers.com is a membership website; the incredibly affordable Yearly Membership gives you access to everything they offer for your entire family. No need to buy a membership for each person! This is awesome for those of us with large families but still affordable for smaller families as well! Every class is self-paced and most do not require the purchase of any additional material!
In addition to specific classes, they have parent and student planners, a schedule builder, record keeping service, a parent ebook library, SchoolhouseEXPO videos, a monthly menu and more! Here are more details about some of the awesome features on the website:
SchoolhouseTeachers now offers membership to several World Book libraries at no extra cost to its members! This is an amazing resource and amazing value. You will find articles, videos, games, research tools, lesson plans and more for every age group!
SchoolhouseTeachers.com membership also includes a membership to RightNow Media! This video library is full of educational, entertaining, and spiritually uplifting videos from a variety of sources. Some of these videos are used as course components but can also be watched just for fun.
Content from Molly Green has been rolled into SchoolhouseTeachers.com. In this section, you will find all of the digital issues of the magazine, ebooks, guides and more! Molly Green is a resource for everything HOME: HOMEkeeping, HOMEschooling, HOMEindustry, and HOMEsteading and now this is all included in your SchoolhouseTeachers membership!
Focused Learning Center
In this area of the website, you will find collections to help you with specific subjects or areas of concern. Maybe you have a child who needs additional help with math or maybe you have a child preparing for college and would like some guidance on how to go about that. You will find it in the Focused Learning Centers. You will also find the Preschool Playground, resources for homeschooling special needs, information on Charlotte Mason Homeschooling and a Hands-On Learning Center.
My oldest is enjoying the Career Center for finding classes that fit her future goals. She hopes to be a Veterinarian but is also interested in Photography, Graphic Design, and Film Making, all of which are included in the Career Center.
This is really just the tip of the iceberg! A SchoolhouseTeachers.com Yearly Membership gives you more than I could possibly list in one blog post for an amazingly reasonable price. I didn’t even touch on the over 360 classes that span Pre-K through High School. Classes include outlines, lesson plans, videos, printables, and certificates of completion. You can bookmark classes you are interested in and even make bookmark lists for each child to easily access the courses they are working on.
Tip: It can be a little overwhelming when you first start looking for classes on SchoolhouseTeachers. I printed out the Course Checklist under Planning and highlighted the classes I wanted my kids to take. This might make the planning a little less overwhelming for you. The printable list is organized by subject but you can also search classes by grade on the website.
