As a homeschooling mom, it can be difficult at times to find resources to teach your children all the subjects they want and need to learn.
That is why I was thankful to find a one-stop shop for online lessons, worksheets, and quizzes.
I have been using the Help Teaching Pro. subscription from HelpTeaching.com to supplement my homeschool science lessons.
What is Help Teaching Pro?
Help Teaching Pro is an online subscription that contains access to hundreds of lessons, worksheets, and videos for a variety of subjects.
The website is easy to use and also includes a test maker, worksheet generator, and tests and worksheets.
- Covers all grade levels
- Works well with multiple students
How We Used It:
Since I am always looking for ways to explain Science topics to my third grader, we focused on the Science lessons.
The lessons are separated by category, and show how much time it will take to complete, as well as the appropriate grade.
I like the fact that you can assign lessons to your children, which makes them more independent and responsible for their own learning.
Another benefit is that the video lessons are relatively short, and have questions that check student understanding after they watch them.
The lessons also show a related worksheet for even more practice and review.
The one thing that I did not like about the online subscription is that some of the printables are in color.
Since I try to conserve ink, I like to print in black and white and colored images use more ink when printing.
Another thing that may be a con for some people, is that the amount of resources is overwhelming.
I think to properly utilize the subscription, you should plan your lessons ahead of time, so that way you won't spend too much time searching for the materials.
My daughter enjoyed the word search printables. There are many printable games that you could use to make your lessons more interesting.
You can also make custom word search games based off your child's spelling and vocabulary words that you are using.
Other Ways to Use the Subscription:
Since I had a multiple student subscription, I was able to take advantage of other lessons on the site.
My preschool twins liked watching the phonics and word family videos. They were good to use emphasize the spelling pattern of the week.
My first grade student was also able to gain a better understanding of language arts with the grammar lessons.
She enjoyed being able to watch the short videos before doing her grammar lessons.
My daughter enjoyed using the lessons and worksheets for her Science lessons.
I liked the fact that I could go to one main website and find what I need for her lessons.
