SchoolhouseTeachers Review 2016
It's the start of a new Review Crew season! Like last year, I'm starting the year off with a review of a Yearly Membership for I really love for the wide variety of goodies offered there. It truly is a one-stop-shop for all your homeschooling needs. Covering all grades, you will find courses on everything from art and Bible to grammar and geography, and more! With over 200 classes available internationally, there's something for everyone!
The last time I reviewed this, I focused mainly on the great core curriculum printables available with your membership to 
(HINT! Click here for that review!!!!) , so I thought I'd take a different route this time and focus on electives and art. We really love the art and elective classes! As a photographer, I was super excited to see the Photography Class that is offered. This class is very well taught, and really covers a great deal of information. I've been a photographer for years, and I still learned a lot of great things! The art classes are also fantastic. I really appreciate the video component that helps you to see what you are supposed to do. 

Wanna see a pretty picture I took after learning a few tricks from the photography class? I knew you would! I was on site doing some Christmas Minis. I was in between clients, framed the lighting just right, adjusted depth of field (bokeh) and click! I'm thinking next year I am going to print this, cover the red bulb in red glitter and POOF! Christmas Cards! 

One of my favorite sections is the RightNow Media Library. With your paid membership, you will enjoy over 10,000 streaming videos! There are videos such as Veggie Tales and Adventure Odyssey for the kiddos, and financial how to's for the adults. We use these to garnish our homeschool day, and just for fun as well! 

Another favorite area for my family are the monthly menus found at This Month's Menu. Each month has a menu complete with recipes! How awesome is that?! 

FYI: That Pot Roast and the Mini Cheesy Meatloaves are to die for! I'm also looking forward to those chocolate toffee bars! YUMMMMMMY! 

So once again, does Pass my 4 Ingredient Test?

1.) Customization: Is it easily adaptable? Can we customize it to fit “us?” Can we modify or set our own schedule? Can we take breaks, jump ahead, or flat out skip?

Are you kidding me?! YES you can customize to fit your needs easily. Now, some classes do suggest you follow the order of the class since information builds on previous material, but you can start and stop any time you wish because the courses are archived!  

2.) Value: Is it long lasting? Will it cover multiple grade ranges? Are you locked in to one specific grade level? Are there hidden fees?

It is a great value! Seriously, do yourself a favor and at least sign up for the 1.00 offer. There is so much to this membership that there is no way I could every cover it all in one, or two, reviews. It is a fantastic place to find a wide range of resources, classes, etc. for all ages. With your membership you have 100% FULL access to the entire site, which also includes Right Now Media AND applecore Recordkeeping! 

3.) Attention span: Is it boring? Is it engaging? Is it varied enough for ADHD? Does it last too long?

Certainly NOT boring. With videos, science projects, reading, and so much more you'll certainly not get bored. The set up allows for easy modification so kiddos with autism or ADHD who need a break can easily take one. 

4.) Does it tie into other things we already have.

Yes. Just....yes. Studying the Middle Ages? Guess what, there's a class for that. Studying Realism in art? Guess what! There's a class for that. Studying geography? guessed. There's a class for that, too! Algebra? Got it. I can do this all day HAHA! 

Last year I focused a lot on the curriculum side of the Yearly Membership. You really can't beat a fully loaded site such as that includes courses in every subject for all ages, family matters such as home planners and menus that include the recipes, as well as the streaming media of Right Now Media. It's almost too good to be true that you can get all of this for just $12.95/month. If you pay for a whole year at one time, you can save 10%. BUT, the awesome folks at have been gracious enough to offer my readers a 50% off special! So you can sign up today for a Yearly Membership for HALF OFF
