Schoolhouse Teachers

I've shared it before, but it's worth sharing again: ROCKS. It is the ultimate source for full lesson plans, mini-unit study plans, supplemental worksheets, videos, forms, and more. They have material for students from Pre-school through high school and for students with special needs. Special lessons are available for classes on:

  • Career Exploration
  • Chemistry
  • College Choice
  • Economics
  • Figures in History
  • Filmmaking
  • Geography
  • High School Math
  • History
  • Home Economics
  • Lapbooking
  • Literature
  • Music - Voice
  • Reading Lessons
  • Special Needs
  • Technology 
  • Writing
  • And more being added all the time

Daily lesson extras are available for:
  • Daily Math
  • Daily Grammar
  • Daily Writing
  • Ditch the Desk, Hands-On lessons for K-5
  • Geography for Canada and USA
  • Everyday Easels(which covers forms of art such as skyscrapers, stonehenge, family scrapbooks, etc.)
  • Pre-K Reading lessons
  • Summer Shakespeare
  • This Day in History
  • This Month's Menu
Membership to Schoolhouse Teachers also gives you free access to the digital editions of the Old Schoolhouse Magazine, which is also an incredible resource. You can read current issues, as well as back-issues! Also, the Planners are available for free on the website. This is an incredible deal, more than paying for a year's membership in and of themselves.

A new-to-me feature is the Homeschool Expo. These monthly sessions are available as videos or as MP3s. These are free for Schoolhouse Teachers members, but can also be purchase separately for $.6.99 if you don't care to join.

Another great feature is the archived lessons. If you are newly joining, you still have access to old lessons, currently going back to March. For example, here is September's list:
  • Asia: It’s Peoples and History – Laos
  • Career Exploration – Start a Micro-Business Lessons 5-8
  • Classics-Based Writing – “Opportunity”
  • Chemistry – Lessons 19-20
  • Economics – Football Economics
  • Elementary Math – Count on 2, Count Back 3, Multiplication and Division Facts X3, Division with Remainders: Dividing by 6
  • Figures in History – Thomas Jefferson
  • Filmmaking – Lessons 10 Part 2 – 11, Webinar Part 1
  • French – Lessons 1-4
  • Geography – A Child’s Geography
  • High School Math – Introduction to Graphing
  • Home Economics – From Chaos to Order
  • Lapbooking – How the Home was Built 
  • Literature – At the Back North Wind
  • Logic – Lessons 1-4
  • Mock Trial – The Judicial Branch
  • Monthly Reading List – Home Economics 
  • Music – Voice – Music and Your Brain
  • Special Needs – Choosing Curriculum Materials
  • Worldviews – The Implications of Relativism
  • Writing – Cinquains
Another new feature is the Daily Checklist , which I really need. There is now a college guidance section. And a guitar section! And a Reading List section! I'm telling ya, they are constantly adding and improving things!

You can join Schoolhouse Teachers on a monthly or a yearly basis. Try it out for a month for just $1 and then continue for $5.95 a month. Or you can join for a yearly membership at $64.26. Currently, there is a special promotional price for a yearly membership for just $49.00 and also receive the annual print book plus a tote bag. I have one of the totes and they are nice and durable.

I hope I don't sound like a bad care salesman, really NEED to join this site. It is an amazing resource and you just can't imagine everything that's available unless you try it out. But for $1, you really can't pass up the opportunity!
