Spend time with the biggest names in online and home education: Kim Kautzer (writing), Diana Waring (history), Terri Johnson (geography), Adam Andrews (literature), the Hands of a Child team (lapbooking), Malia Russell (home economics), George Escobar (filmmaking)—and many more. Each month, new teachers in new subject areas will join the SchoolhouseTeachers.com team.
Overwhelming! This is the only adjective I could think of to describe SchoolHouseTeachers.com. The wealth of information available on the site is astounding. The price for the amount of teacher lessons, helps and extras is amazing as well. This site is designed for parents to be able to use with kids of all ages from infants to adults.
$1.00 first month

There are 17different monthly lessons available. The lessons are written by a variety of experts. To give you an idea of what the lessons are like, I will give an overview of the High School Math lesson for the month of August.
The High School Math lesson for August is written by David Chandler. David is the author of the Home Study Companion series. He has taught physics, mathematics, astronomy, and computer programming and is currently teaching at a K-12 charter school that works with homeschooling families.
Finding Areas Using Reasoning is the lesson for August. The lesson begins with an explanation of the goal of the lesson. Four videos, each between 15 and 30 minutes teach the lesson in detail, then 5 pages of problems.
That is a taste of one of the 17 monthly lessons available. These monthly Schoolhouse Teacher lessons are “grab and go” lessons, most with printable pages, yet are in depth and impart a wide variety of knowledge.
Schoolhouse Teacher Lessons include:
- Career Exploration
- College Choice Guidance
- Figures in History
- High School Math
- Home Economics
- Music –voice
- Reading Lessons
- Special Needs
Schoolhouse Dailies provides a wide variety of daily lessons that need little to no advance prep. Core subjects as well as fun themed lessons are the mainstay of the Schoolhouse Daily lessons.
Right now, there is an interesting study of the Summer Olympics. For this study a sport or competition is defined each day, then there are questions to answer and a hands on activity. This hands on activity may be done out loud or a link to a version suitable for printing is also available.
I have used a few of the Schoolhouse Dailies lessons. Mainly when our days are very busy and our regular schedule is impossible. I can then quickly go the the Schoolhouse Dailies and pull off fun, yet simple to use lessons.

I feel like an infomercial, but I have to say, “But, wait! There’s more!” SchoolhouseTeachers.com also includes many and varied extras. Here you can access monthly and free E-books. You can find MP3 recordings of the information filled TOS Schoolhouse Expos.
My favorite part of the Schoolhouse Extras has to be the famous Schoolhouse Planners. I have used the planners for two years now and LOVE them. With the membership to SchoolhouseTeachers.com every planner they produce is available for download. You can print off the pages you want and customize a daily planner for yourself, your children. You can make a planner specifically for home maintenance or chores or….the possibilities are endless. These planners are a great resource.
The last resource on SchoolhouseTeachers.com is the Schoolhouse Library. This section has articles on a wide variety of topics. You can find a monthly Reading list. Articles on Homeschool Life, Art, Crafts, Homemaking and Housekeeping, Nature and more all make an appearance. New articles are constantly being added to keep things fresh.
I have just given a brief overview of the mass of information and helps on the SchoolhouseTeachers.com website. To see even more information and to check out the pages in depth visit the Samples pages.
