I have been had an Ultimate Pre-K-12 Annual Membership to for several years now and I am always amazed at how much variety they offer. I am always finding new courses and resources that I had not noticed before. In today’s review, I want to focus on some of the resources that we are using this year and some of the great updates and additions Schoolhouse has put into place over the last year.


First, we have been really enjoying the Holiday and Seasonal content. This year we used the Christmas Corner resources to find several videos that we watched as a family and some fun Christmas themed lessons as well. I am looking forward to using it throughout the year for an easy way to incorporate each holiday into our schoolwork. For example, there are some great Valentine’s Day lessons to use in February, including games, history piece, music and literature. The music lesson, themed around the song “My Funny Valentine”, looks like a lot of fun and I think we will incorporate that with my students.  I know that my first grader will enjoy some of the heart themed everyday games like Hearts Word Builder and Hearts Addition to help reinforce his math and reading skills.

High School

Second, I love being able to give my high schooler so many different options. We discuss the credits that he needs to complete and he gets to help me decide which courses he wants to use for those credits. Coming up in this second semester we are both excited about the Drive Thru History: Ancient History. We already know that we love the Drive Thru History series and being able to use it for a high school credit is a great fit. The videos are so much fun that we plan to watch Dave, in his Holy Land (Range) Rover,  as a family and then just have my high school student do the quizzes and writing assignments to get his credit.

We are also looking at several different Bible courses and trying to decide which one will be best. I am leaning towards the video-based Creation Apologetics course. It includes video and a written study guide. I would allow him to watch the videos and complete the study guide independently and then we could discuss what he was learning. However, there are several other great courses, so I plan to let him look over the first couple lessons of each course and then decide which one he wants to complete for the semester.


Finally, we are adding Christian Values in J.R.R. Tolkien to our literature plans. We had been doing a self created study of the Inklings but I decided we needed a little more structure and this was the perfect fit. Created by a professor at Patrick Henry College this course will give my son a better idea of what to expect as he prepares for literature courses at the collegiate level. This course is very rigorous and will challenge him to grow and think. As a high school freshman I think it might be a little too challenging, so we are going to adapt the class a bit to help him make that transition. For example, instead of answering all of the discussion questions in a written format, we are going to meet weekly and discuss them orally. He will still be completing the papers and other written assignments.

Music Lessons

All of my children enjoy musical performance, but my daughter absolutely loves playing her violin. She is in regular lessons, but we found the Beginning Violin course on While she is too advanced for some of the lessons, she found several that had songs that she wanted to learn to play. So she will be using lessons that she selects as extra violin practice. However, if you had a student that was not already playing the violin, they could start at the beginning and learn to play without outside lessons.
