The Schoolhouse Planners (which are available for $9.95 – $39, depending on the planner) are downloadable PDF files. With a SchoolhouseTeachers.com membership, you’ll have access to download all of these planners for FREE!
These planners contain editable PDF files of calendars and planning pages, which means you can type directly into the planner! I like the simplicity of sitting down, typing out our plans for the week, and printing out a neatly typed copy. (There is also an option to print with lines in each daily box, so that you can handwrite your plans.)
I took a close look at the Primary Schoolhouse Planner, which is packed full of resources like math games, activities to learn about oceans and continents, story starters to spark your child’s writing, a list of Caldecott books, a timeline of the life of Jesus, and much more!
There are also pages to journal your child’s first and last day of school, attendance charts to track your number of school days, a page to document books read during the school year, a Bible memorization page, a field trip log, handwriting practice pages, blank journal pages, book report pages, chore charts, and the list goes on – it’s simply too much to list! That’s only the primary planner; just imagine all the resources you’ll find in the full “Big Mama” planner!
We made peppermint scented play dough, forming Christmas tree shapes and decorating them with small jewels. Afterwards, I set the kids loose to make their own creations with our Christmas cookie cutters. This occupied my kiddos for well over an hour!
We again pulled out the cookie cutters after making the cinnamon ornament dough. Your house will smell GREAT (and so will your kids, ha!) after you’ve done this fun project! These also make nice gifts for neighbors and extended family.
We used dice and this adorable gingerbread printable to play a fun math game. Both of my boys LOVED this game, and I was so glad to be introduced to a fun new way to practice math facts! I jumped right in and played this game with the boys, and we had SUCH fun together!
As you can see, the Homegrown Preschool plans gave us plenty of ways to keep busy and learn together as we wait for Christmas to arrive!
There’s so much to offer for ALL ages at SchoolhouseTeachers.com, though! If you have older children, you will find that SchoolhouseTeachers.com offers plenty of activities and lessons to meet their needs. (As a matter of fact, I found myself a little disappointed that we weren’t able to try some of the older child resources. They look amazing!) You’ll have no trouble finding activities that will keep them your older children actively learning!
Across the top of the website, you’ll find tabs to help you easily explore their well-organized site. This will help you find parent resources, preschool and elementary activities and lesson plans, middle and high school activities and lesson plans, extras, family resources, an an archives section.
There is a “Tinkers Club” (for elementary through high school) that is currently exploring cars and motors, and the plans also have your children building a small motorized car! For older children, there is an option to study internal combustion engines. Wouldn’t that be fun to capture the interest of a reluctant learner?!
There is a monthly nature study for families, with activity options for both warm and cold climates. I often struggle with WHAT we can do outside to explore nature in our own yard or at the park. This resource could be very beneficial!
You’ll also find a discount section offering coupon codes for many homeschool products, such as Fundanoodle, Kinderbach, and Institute for Excellence In Writing.
I cannot even begin to list all of what you’ll find at SchoolhouseTeachers.com! I will say that it is just FULL of learning opportunities for students of all ages, and it’s also full of resources for parents!
