What we Liked?
You may take a while to understand the entire gamut of resources available. Use the link to do a quick check. We particularly liked all the seasonal resources that are readily available. Like for example Easter resources when we wanted to cover it in our homeschool group, I had to look nowhere else for explanation of concept, puzzles and activities.
Another value adding feature is that one single membership provides for K-12 Homeschool Curriculum Boxes. This is a set of online materials, including downloadable .pdf files, streaming videos, and other resources that are available immediately upon purchase of a SchoolhouseTeachers.com ultimate membership. They are planning to add the PK and Parent Boxes to the repertoire.
Each curriculum box contains –
✓ A curriculum guide for each subject that correlates objectives with the SchoolhouseTeachers.com.
✓ Scope and Sequence.
✓ Weekly checklists to keep you on track.
✓ Daily checklists that guide you—and your student—through each activity.
✓ Direct links to the SchoolhouseTeachers.com courses and resources you need by the week.
✓ All the additional suggested materials for the year listed in one place, like art supplies and notepaper.
✓ Links to additional SchoolhouseTeachers.com resources for those days you want to spend more time on a topic your kids love(seasonal resources).
This resource took preparation out of the process and made planning easier. Check out an excerpt of planning guide for yourself.
You absolutely don’t need to use all the topics in the curriculum box. You can mix and match, concentrate on fewer subjects, combine certain guides with specific SchoolhouseTeachers.com courses in other subject areas, or personalize utilizing resources from one of their focused learning centers.
What else is Timesaving?
They also offer a Master Course Checklist, which covers all of the courses presently accessible on SchoolhouseTeachers.com by subject and grade, as well as a blank monthly checklist and a Skills Learned form.
What’s more- use AppleCore that helps in individual record keeping. AppleCore is a simple program that generates a report card and/or transcript for your student records.

To begin adding the classes your child is taking, click ‘add courses.’ Specific courses may be selected from dropdowns under general categories, and each course can be added with a single click.You have an option of scheduling and stating the length of each class in the fall, spring, summer, or whole year.

Any family with Christian faith that enjoys online learning will like SchoolhouseTeachers.com. If you’re new to online learning, this would be a terrific place to start because of its versatile resources. Often, when our children reach higher grades, parents fear that they will have learning gaps or that they will be unable to teach what they do not understand. This is an excellent affordable resource for parents as well, given their resources for more challenging courses included with the membership.
