Developed by The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, is a comprehensive online resource for homeschooling families.  It's so comprehensive, I've had a hard time starting this review!

Probably the best place to begin is with the site tour.  There are short videos here that explain how to use all of the information and resources on this site.

What resources are there?  Well, when you subscribe, you'll receive access to lessons written by well known experts in their field.  Adam Andrews  provides the lessons for literature and Terry Johnson (Knowledge Quest) provides the lessons for geography, just for starters.  Other lessons are provided in these areas (and the list is growing!):

  • Career Exploration
  • Chemistry
  • College Choice Guidance
  • Economics
  • Figures in History
  • Filmaking
  • Geography
  • High School Math
  • History
  • Home Economics
  • Lapbooking
  • Literature
  • Music (voice)
  • Reading Lessons
  • Special Needs
  • Technology

In addition to lesson plans, there are several "Schoolhouse Dailies" available.  Here you will find daily lessons in:
  • Grammar
  • Math
  • Writing
  • Hands-on Activities
  • Art
  • Explorers (USA & Canada)
  • Pre-K Activities
  • History
  • and more!

For the price of your monthly subscription, you also get access to the 5 different Schoolhouse Planners. There is a planner for Mom, for Special Needs, for Elementary, for Middle School, and for High School.  There is a library available that contains printable copybooks, crafts, and articles about homemaking, art, encouragement for those rough days, and additional topics.  

Really, this is a site you have to see to believe.  You can try it out for $1 for the first month, and continue for $5.95 per month after that.  This is a steal.  It's a great way to add spice and variety to your homeschool days, and it's constantly growing and getting even better.
