I'm excited to be starting something new on my blog this year. I have been accepted as a member of The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew! The Old Schoolhouse is a quarterly homeschool magazine that started in 2001. It's available in print, online, or mobile app.
For my first review, we got to sample SchoolhouseTeachers.com
Yearly Membership. I admit, at first I wasn't thrilled. I prefer our children to spend more time outside than in front of a screen. They learn computer skills so incredibly fast, I don't feel a need at all for them to spend much time on it at all.
My favorite part is “Everyday Games”:
Brought to you by Teresa Evans, a veteran classroom teacher in Australia, Everyday Games is a fun and interesting way to teach math and phonics. Her math games will help your student improve without realizing he is really “doing math.” The reading games practice many skills, such as consonant blends, suffixes, prefixes, compound words, and much more. One of the best ways to encourage your student to learn is by helping them have fun, and you can do that with Everyday Games.
Our oldest boy's favorite part is the Computer & Technology section. He has been reading the “Internet Entrepreneurship for Teens”. I was thrilled to see some comprehensive High School Courses like this!
The children are also thoroughly enjoying the Media Library.
A gateway to more than 10,000 video resources for you and your family. The media library includes resources for all ages, from VeggieTales, Adventures in Odyssey, 3-2-1 Penguins, and What’s In the Bible for kids to Bible studies by Francis Chan, John MacArthur, Dave Ramsey, and John Maxwell for adults. It also includes academic content that you’ll find described below. It is a streaming video site, and there is no limit to the number of videos you can enjoy. Most videos are available worldwide (a very small number have geographic restrictions).
I wouldn't have believed all that is available in this one online subscription. Through SchoolhouseTeachers.com, we could educate children from pre-K through High School without additional textbooks. The subjects include (but definitely not limited to):
- Computer & Technology
- Drama & Speech
- Language Arts
- Nutrition, Health & Fittness
