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.
If you are unfamilliar with SchoolhouseTeachers.com, then you have come to the right place! I want to share their Ultimate PreK-12 Annual Membership with you as my family has been enjoying it off and on over the last four years.
What is Schoolhouse Teachers.com?
They offer courses and subjects ranging from preschool through highschool that include over 300 courses including subjects such as computer programing, music and photograhy, cooking, math, science, language arts, foregin language and so much more.
Here are a few other bonuses about Schoolhouse Teachers.com that we are particularly thankful for:
– No common core!!! YAY!!
– New Courses are added regularly
– Full Year & One-Semester Courses
– Access to Video Streaming for some subjects
– Schedule creators
The Ultimate PreK-12 Annual Membership includes a one time price that covers the WHOLE FAMILY. And I mean the WHOLE family from preschool to adult. I have recently been taking a course from SchoolhouseTeachers myself!
How Does It Work?
(1) You find the course you desire to work on.
(2) You print the lessons and lesson plans that are ready for you to download.
(3) Your student (or yourself) work through the class marking when you complete a lesson to keep track of where you are. Lessons can be graded by you and then filed in a portfolio.
Let Me Walk You Through It!
I have been working on our family business called Fermentools.com and have been looking to increase my skills in photography. Particulary food photography. I went onto SchoolhouseTeachers.com and went to the tab labeled “Broswe by Subject” and Clicked on “Electives”.
It was as easy as paging through my options, selecting “Photography”, and going to “Class Lessons” to get started.
As you can see, the class lessons are clearly laid out with lesson plans, course outlines, transcripts (if applicable), and lessons avaible individually or as a single PDF file download for easy printing. From the moment I was interested to starting the first lesson was about a total time of 5 minutes!
I have been having an absolute blast reading through each lesson and taking on the challenge at the end of each one. I am working through this at my own pace, in my own time, and skipping around to the lessons that most interest me or are applicable to what I am looking to get out of this course.
I have even been able to contact the course author and email her some of my work. I value getting her feedback and she has been encouraged in being able to interact with her student… me!
A second recent application of SchoolhouseTeachers.com in our house was the music theory courses available for download. There were two of them entitled Advanced Music Theory which I downloaded for my older girls to work through, as well as Music Theory I & II which my next oldest daughter is working through.
I went through the same simple process to find, download and print the courses. They have been taking on a lesson or two a week and are having a blast!
What Did DeputieTribe Think?
SchoolhouseTeachers has SO MUCH to offer with the Ultimate PreK-12 Annual Membership, it’s quite impressive! I only touched on the courses available and how to find them and work through them, but there is so much more!
We primarily use SchoolhouseTeachers for mini courses, electives, and to build unit studies around certain interests. I love having the subscription on hand for those many applications when we read a book on bugs and one or many children in my home want a more in depth study to work through on their own time or on our “Interest Driven Friday” school days.
I have used it to supplement my kids music lessons (they take piano and violin) for years.
Want to Learn More?
I have only touched on one of the many applications of SchoolhouseTeachers.com. Want to learn what else it has to offer? Or maybe your curious on a few of the other features I wasn’t able to touch on in my review?
Not a Problem!
