Educeri Lesson Subscription Service ~ REVIEW

http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb374/TOSCrew2011/2016%20TOS%20Crew/10%20-%20October/17%20Educeri/More%20than%201000%20Handouts_zpsgzuu8ysr.jpgI can not tell you how many times Kaden has asked me about a topic that I just look blankly back at him and wonder to myself just where did he come from.  And then I think back to how many times a day do I Google a subject I'm interested in or thumb through old books and magazines to find that article that I have the time to research more about.  He gets it from me and that's why we spend countless hours poured over books at the Library and hunched over the computer piecing together information and answers to his most important questions.  I have a few favorite places I hit up regularly because it gets him the answers he wants.  But, I'm noticing as he gets older his questions have grown from looking for simple answers.  But, he's wanting to understand the why and learn to replicate the how.  While we were on our RV trip for 9 weeks it was a Gold Mine out there in the real world.  Information at every turn and while we were nearing the end of our trip we were given an opportunity to Review  what I think may be an answer to my prayers.  Educeri .....  Educeri a division of DataWORKS has over 1000 Ready to Teach Lessons with their Educeri Lesson Subscription Service.  Yes, you read right.....Ready to Teach, nothing else needed.

How it is set up you basically can search for a key word, by grade or subject.  I used this with both Kaden and Mahala.  Mahala, even though she is older....almost 17.  She learns best when we can talk about what we are reading and research as we go.  Kaden, who is only 9 just wants the facts as fast as possible.  No reason to waste time yapping about anything with him.  He is strictly business....that being said I let him use this program differently then it was designed to be used.  It's designed as a slide show presentation for the Teacher to use for their purpose to teach the lesson to their students.  You will find even extra Teacher helps and additional info scattered throughout the lessons too.    This worked perfectly for Mahala.  We would print out any Student handouts and work through the lesson together, stopping for further investigation or discussion as we went along.  Kaden, sat at the table beside me and scrolled through the topics and began the lessons with me at his side.  Most of the time he didn't use the print outs and he answered the questions orally.  

Both Kiddos enjoyed the material, how it was presented and the range of topics.  Mahala did say she would have liked maybe some spin off project ideas or like a "to-do next" section.  And Kaden said if he could add anything he thought some of the lessons would be nice to have a short video or audio clip of some sort.  Me, I just want there to be more...I don't want to ever run out of lessons....I loved it!!  I could be hands on and off and still be apart of my Kiddo's learning!  I learned a lot too, with Mahala about Confucius and even though it was a 6th grade lesson she loved it and we both learned a lot!  For her we focused a lot about the Cold War and revisited some scary English stuff along with some much needed High school English to learn how to write her way into College.  Kaden raked in the hours....he read about Plate Boundaries with High school Science, about an Energy Pyramid, how earth quakes happen and the Origin of Christianity and the teachings of Buddha.  And so many more things I could write, but I think you get the picture.

I highly recommend that you head over and check them out.  I think this is an affordable way at $7 a month to add to your lesson spectrum and give your Kiddos the advantage of these Ready to Teach Lessons.  They even offer a Free 30 Day Trial.  You have nothing to loose and a lot to gain by giving Educeri Lesson Subscription Service a try.  Head over now and see what they have going on with Social Media.
