audio or video elements, and some
courses are almost entirely video based.
Do You Have Every Course I
With over 300 courses, we have an incredible amount of options for your family. That said, we do not have every subject for every grade level yet, but we are
adding content and courses continually.
Depending on your family’s needs, you
can use Schoolhouse Teachers.com as the
core of your curriculum or to fill in gaps
in your current curriculum. We offer
various tools to help you find what you’re
looking for on the site, including live operators to assist you via instant chat, as
well as our comprehensive Scope and Sequence tool which we’ll explore in more
detail a little later in our tour.
How Can I Use Schoolhouse
Teachers in My Homeschool?
The best way we can answer that question is to show you a sampling of the
courses we offer. Let’s take a look at the
site one grade at a time. Please remember
that you are more than welcome to take
courses higher or lower than suggested
grade levels based on your unique children. One of the joys of homeschooling is
that you do not need to be traditional in
every area. You know your children best!
What should preschool at home look like?
You’ll find as many answers to that question as parents who have asked it. There
is no one “right” way to teach preschool,
but there are tools that can help you make
the most out of this very special time in
your child’s life. SchoolhouseTeachers.
com offers a wealth of articles to help you
determine what you want your preschool
year to look like, fun tools, and academic
resources that you can use as a complete
preschool curriculum or as learning activities you can scatter throughout your days.
Preschool Playground is the name
we’ve given to our collection of preschool
courses. These include Bible; Language
Arts; Multi-Subject Learning; Numbers,
Patterns, and Cognitive Skills; Manners
and Healthy Habits; Arts, Crafts, and Mu-
sic; Science; and Social Studies. You may
use these courses together to form a com-
plete preschool curriculum or enjoy them
independent of each other to add some
educational fun to your little learner’s
day. Let’s take a closer look at some of the
specific courses you’ll find here.
From Aardvark to Zucchini is a fun
series of videos that help preschoolers
learn their letters while discovering that
they can talk to God any time about anything at all. It takes preschoolers through
the alphabet with 26 animated episodes
full of rhymes, songs, age-appropriate
discussion questions, dancing, and more.
Numbers, Patterns, and Cognitive
Skills is a collection of more than 75
activities that include structured worksheets as well as hands-on activities.
Skills explored include counting, oral
and written number practice, counting
and recording, classifying objects, ordinal numbers, positional words, clocks,
calendars, and more.
ABC: What Will I Be? is designed as
a letter-of-the-week curriculum. However, instead of the typical A is for Ant
and B is for Bear, your preschooler learns
about twenty-six professions such as astronaut, fireman, quarterback, and others
all while engaging in hands-on play. The
aim of this course is to teach preschoolers the letters of the alphabet playfully
while deliberately expanding their literacy skills and knowledge of the world
Charlotte Mason Preschool is a series of lessons based around nature study
themes that incorporate other activities
that are accessible to preschoolers, such
as handicrafts, art, and living books. Each
week’s lessons only contain 3-4 activities
so preschoolers have plenty of time for
free play, exploring outdoors, and even
working on their handicrafts.
We currently have more than thirty
courses kindergarteners can enjoy, including the ones highlighted below.
Literacy Center is a collection of tools
to help you teach your child to read in
101 simple steps. It covers pre-reading and reading from a preschool-2nd
grade level and reading comprehension
through a 3rd-4th grade level and is designed to help you build a strong reading
foundation for your children. We know
that every child learns to read at his or
her own pace, so like all the courses on
SchoolhouseTeachers.com, the Literacy
Center is entirely self-paced. For parents
of kindergarteners, resources help you
