From their website:

"At Schoolhouse - You’ll have full access to daily, weekly, and monthly assignments for your students and tons more material for you. Every month after the initial one, it keeps coming—new daily, weekly, and monthly lessons. Spend time with the biggest names in online and home education: Kim Kautzer (writing), Diana Waring (history), Terri Johnson (geography), Adam Andrews (literature), the Hands of a Child team (lapbooking), Malia Russell (home economics), George Escobar (filmmaking)—and many more. Each month, new teachers in new subject areas will join the team. "

You will want to check out the handy Site Tour page - this is a gigantic, must-have,  homeschool resource!

Schoolhouse members have access to numerous resources and materials.  Each month that you are a member you can add to your library of homeschooling resources, unit studies, and encouragement with Schoolhouse Thematic Units, Curiosity Files, WannaBes, and WeE-books. (check it out here)

  One of my favorite features - members have FREE access to all the 2012-13 Schoolhouse Planners!  Yes, all 5 planners - including: Parent, Special Learners, Primary, Intermediate and High School editions are ALL available for you to download as a member!

So, you're thinking this is going to be spendy...right?  WRONG!  You get this amazing resource for just $1 the first month and $5.95 per month after that!  (that's one "fancy coffee" ladies - what are you waiting for?)  You don't have to committ to a contract, and can cancel anytime.

Each month's learning features a Monthy Theme.  You also will access to a monthly Reading List to go with your theme.  For example - July's theme is "Foreign Language". 
Weekly Lessons are available in 14 different subjects. Daily Assignments are available in Math, Grammar, Writing, Ditch-the-Desk (Hands on projects for K-5), Everyday Easels (art studies with hands-on ideas), Everyday Explorers (US and Canadian), Pre-K Activities, Everyday Shakespeare, This Day in History.

You have to see some sample pages!!  Here's an entire page of them to choose from!

The Bentz Test Laboratory could get lost in this HUGE resource.  If you like extra resources - they've got everything you could want! 

I particularly enjoyed being able to download each of the resources I was interested in for later use. Did you miss something?  Don't worry - you can find it in the archives!

One of our favorites has been the lessons from Figures in History - Dinosaurs on the Move. One of my testers is an avid dino-lover - and he was able to create standing cutouts, coloring pages and even hands-on fossil activites!

Another tester is a huge Shakespeare fan - guess what? - Schoolhouse has a entire daily section for him - Summer Shakespeare!

Lapbooking fans??  We particularly enjoyed July's Lapbooking Lessons from Hands of a Child - Summer Safety.  In fact - I personally killed both a Black Widow and a Brown Recluse this month.  I would have been prepared if they had gotten close enough to bite...

If you have a number of children to educate, or a tight budget - you will certainly want to check this out!  From High School Math to Pre-K,  you will find something for everyone!
