Personally, with a rising 9th grader, the free high school planner was an instant draw to me.  I instantly downloaded and began scrolling through the massiveness of it.  A brief overview, it includes such things as: daily and monthly planning, an attendance sheet, high school tracking sheet, high school credit log, a sample course of study (for those students who are college bound or not), a community service log, course suggestions/ ideas, an overview on how to calculate a G.P.A, and so much more.  I mean it is REALLY jam-packed with how loaded it is.  This is the ultimate planner.  The planner is also available for general, primary, intermediate, and special needs.        Finally, and this does not even touch on all that is available, members have access to all the Old Schoolhouse Magazines AND access to a monthly free e-book.  Oh, Oh…I did not even tell you that after one year of membership, members get a $25 gift certificate that can be used in the Totally TOS section of the Old Schoolhouse store.  That is like an instant discount off of the subscription.  For all that is available within this site, which is continually growing, it is a steal.  You simply have to Point-Click-Teach   My family personally plans on continuing the usage of Schoolhouse Teachers as a supplement to our learning and to add fun and pizazz to our homeschool days.  My 6th grade son has enjoyed computer programming, my 9th grader has enjoyed career planning, my 5th grader has enjoyed the Daily Writing Prompts, and my 3rd grader has enjoyed daily reading suggestions, Daily Grammar, and lapbooking fun.    To find out more about Schoolhouse Teachers, click here:       To see what others from the Schoolhouse Review Crew have to say about this product click here: Schoolhouse Review Crew […]
