Tailoring School Boxes to Your Child's Needs

School Boxes are curated curricula that's open and go.  They are available for Pre-K through 12th grade and perfect for the busy parent and / or new homeschooler!

Some of the most commonly asked questions about these new boxes from SchoolhouseTeachers are....
  • Does the school box cost extra?
    • No.  It comes with your membership, which covers all subjects and curriculum for every student in your house.  If you have ten kids, they're all covered with the same membership!
  • Is this a physical box of materials shipped to my home?
    • No.  These are digital boxes, but that doesn't mean you're going to have to print everything either.  Many of the classes are video-based or online/interactive.  Some of the classes are text-based, giving you the option to either set it up through Google Classroom (see how to do that here) or print it out and create your own textbook.
  • What’s in each Curriculum Box?
    • A curriculum guide for each subject 
    • Scope and Sequence
    • Weekly checklists to keep you on track
    • Daily checklists that guide you—and your student—through each activity
    • Direct links to the courses and resources you need by the week
    • All the additional suggested materials for the year listed in one place, like art supplies and notepaper
    • Links to additional resources for those days you want to spend more time on a topic your kids love
  • What will my child learn when we follow the Curriculum Guides?
    • See the Scope and Sequence for a full list of the skills covered at each level.  Remember that these classes are what is most commonly covered at that grade level.  You may want to tailor up or down a grade level, based on your student's abilities and needs.
    • For example, if your student is behind in math, you might choose the math class from the grade just below.  If your student is advanced in math, you might choose the math class from the grade just above.
  • Do I have to use Curriculum Guides for every subject?
  • Why should my family pay for a membership when something like Khan Academy is free?
