Our family has been spending some time checking out the My Teaching Library Download Club over the last month. The Download Club membership allowed us to use as many of the products on the site as we wanted during the time of our membership and we found lots of resources to try.
The site offers resources for pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade and even resources for organization and classroom management. The resources can be sorted by grade and topic and there are thousands to choose from. In addition to sorting activities by grade and subject, they also have monthly activities, seasonal activities, and special holiday activities. All of the resources are included in the membership or they can be purchased individually.
Most of the resources that we utilized were for my toddler and my first grader. As we were starting back to school and enjoying the slightly cooler weather (at least for a few days), I wanted to do some fall and pumpkin activities with them. There were quite a variety to choose from that included coloring pages, poetry, writing, science projects, and more. There were 39 different fall packs to choose from with activities for a variety of ages.
We started by using some of the pages from the P is for Pumpkin pack and the Funny Pumpkins unit. My son really enjoyed the letter finding and word making activities. We also liked the page with a pumpkin picture that my youngest could finish with dot markers. We have been reviewing upper and lower case letters and the pumpkin pages were a great way to incorporate pumpkins and fall into that review. There was even a fun short video that explains the life cycle of a pumpkin.
In science, my seventh grader and my first grader are studying anatomy. I had been hoping to find some pages that were a little easier for my first grader and was delighted to find some coloring pages that will work great as we go through the curriculum. There were also some great diagrams and pages that will help my seventh grader.
My oldest child is in ninth grade and taking a pretty full course load this year. I had not planned to use this program with him because I did not want to add anything to his load. However, I was surprised to find that there was a guitar tutorial included with the membership. This 62 page document takes you step by step through learning the guitar. He has just started lessons and I shared this with him to help him study and practice.
In addition, there were lots of great resources for organization including a transcript record, course of study records, activities log, desk toppers, calendars, and more. These would be great for homeschool, co-op, or a classroom teacher. There were also glossaries for various subjects, lined papers, templates, and even a college application guide.
Overall, we thought there were lots of great products included with this membership. We will use it as a supplement to our regular curriculum. I could also see it being very beneficial to someone who wanted to create their own curriculum or use student directed learning because you have access to so many different resources on such a variety of topics.
