Looking for a ready to teach supplement for your homeschool?
Have your children been struggling with a certain subject? I know that sometimes we hit a snag in our homeschooling and one of our children needs just a little extra practice on a certain subject. I recently found Educeri and realized they have 1000s of lessons and practice in a significant amount of subjects for school-aged children of all ages. Educeri ……. Educeri a division of DataWORKS has lessons for grade K-12 for a wide variety of subjects available with their Educeri Lesson Subscription Service.
As I first scrolled through the website, I realized just how many lessons are offered. I like that you can search by either grade level or by subject matter. If you can’t find what you need, there is also a way to use the search bar to type in what you are looking for. I love how easy it is to scroll through all of the content and lessons!
We decided to use this mostly for our 6th grader. He has been struggling with dyslexia which means sometimes he doesn’t do enough language arts on his grade level because we spend so much extra time on spelling, phonics and reading practice. We ended up first using the 6th-grade lessons on determining an author’s point of view.
I like that the lessons are presented in a slide show format. It does seem that this is geared toward kids in a classroom but it was easy enough for us to use one-on-one. I clicked through the lesson and presented the material to my son. I love that it is truly ready to teach. There was absolutely no prep work needed from me. I like that it gives the objective at the top of the page and presents questions that can be read directly to the student. I felt confident in presenting the material to my son. The way it is written out helped me determine what I needed to help him understand.
They also include plenty of practice. They make it easy for the teacher because it gives us the answers. The program gives us the real answers in red type and even underlines the correct parts so that we can make sure our students have a good understanding of the concept.
I love that Educeri provides student worksheets that they can work through as homework or with you as you present. This provides a good amount of reinforcement on the subject matter.
We also scrolled through the math and found some that our 6th grader needed extra practice on. My son picked a lesson on the comparison of fractions and decimals and we found this to be a good one for practice. Any math practice that is ready to teach is a HUGE plus! He was able to work through the student worksheets after seeing the lesson presented through the slide show.
This curriculum is aligned with common core, which we aren’t too fond of. We tend to stay away from any curriculum that uses common core. However, this curriculum did have several subjects that we were interested in using and teaching, so it was a good fit for our family.
I personally like that this is a good supplement for our curriculum. I also like that because it is completely planned out that it is ready to teach. If there is something that my kids aren’t understanding fully, we can work through one of these lessons. I will probably use this with my Kindergartener and Fourth grader, as well. There are so many choices when it comes to math and language arts but I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of history and science lessons available as well. My fourth grader, after seeing her brother use Educeri, is interested in it as well. I definitely recommend this to other homeschoolers who might need a little extra practice!
