I am excited to announce that I am now an official member of The Schoolhouse Review Crew! One of the first things that I was able to review is a product that I had been contemplating purchasing for a while now, SchoolhouseTeachers.com
AJ and I were given a Yearly Membership to SchoolhouseTeachers.com. There is so much to explore, that even after two weeks of using it, I don’t think I have uncovered half of the wonderful classes and programs that are available.
What is SchoolhouseTeachers.com?
We used the website on my PC laptop. The site loaded quickly and was fairly easy to navigate. Once you click on the course you want to take, you are usually taken to a page with all of the lessons hyperlinked and ready for you to start on whatever lesson you are looking for. A few of the courses I looked at didn’t list all of the courses on one page, in those courses I had to click through a couple of pages to go back to the beginning lessons of the course. It didn’t make the navigation any harder, but it did take longer to get to the lesson I wanted.
I did most of the site navigation when we used my computer, but AJ used her Kindle Fire to watch some of the sign language videos on her own. It was great that she could watch the video lessons and practice even away from the computer.
Most of the courses require typical school supplies like; pencils, notebooks, and paper. There are a great deal of printable elements in the courses that I looked at, mostly worksheets, notes, and lapbook pieces.
How did we use it?
Daily Grammar 6/7
- Monday – You identify the part of speech for each word in the sentence.
- Tuesday – You label the functioning parts of the sentence including things like; subjects, predicates, direct objects, and indirect objects.
- Wednesdays – You identify the clauses, sentence type, and purpose.
- Thursday – You fix capitalization and punctuation.
- Friday – You diagram the sentence.
Tuesday’s work was by far the hardest because it contained things that AJ hadn’t learned before.
We decided to use Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s work as a way to learn new material. We used the answer key and the notes to learn why the sentence was marked the way it was.
