Schoolhouse Review

As part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew, I received an online membership to features online content designed for and by home educators.  It offers resources for kindergarten through high school in all the major subjects.



Thanks for joining us here at, presented by The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine. You might have heard about Teacher’s Toolbox in the past, and this new membership site is a massive expansion on the old. Just wait until you see what The Old Schoolhouse has in store for you! is biggerbetterbrighter, and easier to navigate for you. You’ll have full access to daily, weekly, and monthly assignments for your students and tons more material for you. Every month after it keeps coming—new daily, weekly, and monthly lessons. is an incredible website jam packed with everything you need for your homeschool. Thankfully, there is a site tour to help you see everything they offer. You can also view Sample pages.

The Schoolhouse Dailies section has new lessons everyday for writing, grammar, math, history, and many more. We haven’t started using this section yet. It looks great, though, and I can foresee us incorporating some of these dailies into our day.

The Schoolhouse Library section is full of great reading. It also has craft projects, reading lists, and much, much more. A section on how to study art and artists is coming soon.

There are so many extras, I can’t even begin to list them here. Back issues of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, free ebooks and planners. The planners. Wow! Are they ever awesome! These planners have more information and forms than any planner I’ve ever seen. There are 4 different planners.  There’s the Schoolhouse Planner with almost 800 pages. The Special Learners Planner, the Primary, Intermediate, and the High School Planners. The planners are editable. For example, on the weekly lessons page, you can take out the “subject” entry and enter the names of your actual subject, algebra, history, etc. Do this before printing, and you have a custom planner. You can also enter your lesson plans before printing. There are several different styles of calendars, all of which you can edit before printing. They really are incredible planners, and you won’t be disappointed.




I assigned my kids lessons according to their interests.

Calen, 17, is taking the Filmmaking lessons taught by George Escobar who is the director/producer/co-writer and the co-founder of Advent Film Group. He is enjoying the lessons and learning a lot. He makes videos here at home, as well as at church and he is working on a short film, also. He has been able to apply these lessons to his work and they are really helping him. I think he’ll be taking the computers/technology class next.

Hannah, 16, is taking the Home Economics lessons. These are taught by Malia Russell who is the director of  She’s been taking Home Ec for awhile now and is pretty advanced. She bakes bread (and lots of other things) from scratch as well as designs and sews her own clothes. She is still learning a lot from these lessons.  These are not just cooking or sewing lessons. They prepare the student to run a home.  Everything from making a household notebook to spending to much time on electronics is covered in the lessons. When she finishes these lessons, she will probably take the music and voice lesson.

Abby, 13 is taking the music and voice lessons taught by Joy Sikorski, an award winning film composer, performer and educator who founded Sing Baby Sing and Singing Mastermind. These lessons are really in depth. They start with the student listening to great singers and learning about music. She sings with the Youth Praise Team at our church and plays the piano, so I think these lessons are helping her with her musical pursuits.

I haven’t assigned Zach, 12, anything yet. I think I will assign him the computer/technology lessons. Since he likes to spend a lot of time on the computer, I think he will enjoy it.

There is so much available at Schoolhouse that we will definitely keep busy trying them all!


$1.00 for the first month, then $5.99 a month. You’ll receive many benefits, too many to list here, visit Schoolhouse for more information.
