TOS Review: Schoolhouse Teachers

Ever heard of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine? Well, it has fabulous information for educators, and Schoolhouse is their ON-LINE education resource!

Schoolhouse provides monthly, weekly AND daily lessons in many different subject areas. Need Daily Grammar? Monthly Literature Lessons? Economics and Chemistry? Famous people? It's all on this one-stop website for $5.95/month. (Guess what? The first month is just $1!)

Some other fun learning opportunities included:
Everyday Explores Canada
Everything Explorers USA
Daily Math
Film Making
Home Economics
Every Day Easels
Summer Shakespeare

And your membership also gets some really cool benefits...The Old Schoolhouse Magazine back issues! There are different download options, but I went with Kindle Fire. Having magazines to read at the beach or recreation center this summer with the Saplings has been very handy for passing the time AND getting some great idea about homeschooling!

But I did have a problem with Schoolhouse are MANY different lessons that it can be a little overwhelming. What a "terrible problem", huh? Too much educational "stuff" to choose from! LOL

So, what DID we use for this review?

Well, we worked on some Daily Grammar review! Doesn't that sound like great SUMMER FUN? LOL Actually, the worksheets were visually fun to look at (even in black-and-white since that's how I printed them out) and quick to complete, and were other, more hands-on and creative grammar activities too (but we just didn't get to them in time for this review). Just a little something to keep basic grammar rules "fresh" and it's worked perfectly for that.

Oh, and I downloaded the WONDEFUL planners! You can either print them out OR fill them out on-line! There are 100s of choices to customize the perfect calendar for your needs. My oldest will be using some of the high school version next year to keep records independently.
