Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
For this review I decided to see if SchoolhouseTeachers.com could be used to homeschool all of my children all the way to high school.
You can easily search for resources based on your childs grade or based on the subject. I first started with my 4 year old boy.
I have a very active 4 year old boy, so I definitely need something to keep him busy. Searching under the preschool grade level I found Preschool in a Box. Most of the resources are downloadable and printable. There are many coloring sheets I could print out and have him work on while I worked with the older kids. I found a firetruck for him to color and a worksheet for him to cut out and count the number of firemen.
For my boys learning to read, there are many wonderful resources at SchoolhouseTeachers.com. There is a whole section of resources under something called the Literary center. Some of my favorite resources are the Phonics Reviews and the Quick Reading Intervention, Grade 2+ ebook reading remedies. You can print out many worksheets to help work on some week areas they need work. I especially love the ebook Fourteen Steps To Teach Dyslexics to Read and Write which is available as a pdf download with your SchoolhouseTeachers.com membership.
For my older boys I was interested in the science classes that had videos. I found multiple science videos with cool experiments.
My boys and I enjoyed watching the Hooked on science videos and trying the experiments ourselves. The experiments used objects we could easily find around the house. The only problem I encountered was using the iPad for the videos. (Update: Yes it was an issue with our filter. Videos work fine on the iPad). I think it might be due to the internet filter we use. I will definitely research this this and find out if videos will work on the iPad. It would really be nice to watch the experiments on an iPad.
For my daughter who is a sophomore in high school I needed some resources for her upcoming apologetics debate class. We found many great videos on Appologetics. The Addressing Cultural Issues class has several videos and a worksheet that goes along with each video. I am also hoping to utilize the Biology class videos for my daughter. The Biology class is a full year High school class with videos and outlines for each lesson. There are also worksheets to fill out while you watch the lessons and tests you can print out.
If you homeschool children of any age, I highly recommend you checkout SchoolhouseTeachers.com!
