One of the things we used the most was the Character Study. The Character Study is literature based and consists of 40 character traits (positive and negative). It comes with a suggested book list, but we couldn’t always find the books as suggested; it was easy, however, to find alternatives.
Each character has a poster and some report paperwork, we did the questions and discussion orally as a family, after reading you the book during circle time each morning. The kids have really enjoyed this, and have even brought me books they find from our own shelves that they feel meet the character trait! This is a program that we will definitely continue with.
We are doing life science this year and I found a great printable pack for learning to classify. It’s a lot of pages to print, but it includes a wide variety of pictures of objects, and many different ways to sort them into categories.
A few other things we found that fit in with our lessons this year are lapbooks (such as whale, sharks, ants and human body), anatomy coloring book, health curriculum, mammal notebooking pages, reading comprehension pages, charts, posters, and so much more!
You can even find full curriculums, such as American history, biology and spelling! They are adding new stuff almost every day!
The recently added worksheet packets for Kindergarten, First Grade and Second Grade for the month of September. It is filled with all sorts of math workbook pages, as well as other subjects, of what they need to know for those grades! I assume there will be more for upcoming months. I found lots of stuff in there to supplement our math program for my youngers that need more hands on and not just computer screen!
There is a HUGE variety of materials available, and all for a low cost of only $25 a year or $99 for a lifetime subscription!
They have search boxes, which makes it easy to find the materials you are looking for. There were a few instances where I searched for a specific item, and it was not available, but for the most part… ever subject I have searched, I have found something that we could use!
There is also a Facebook group for CHSH users, so that you can see what’s new and talk to other people using the subscription program, see what they have found and how they are using it! This is such a helpful tool!
They have things for preschool through high school, and for teachers too!
From full curriculums, to extra curricular and supplemental items, you could almost homeschool solely from this site, it’s almost overwhelming! Throughout the review period, every time I searched their site, I was always finding something new, plus the listing of new things posted! This site gets better and better!
The organization of it is a bit difficult, for instance, I was looking for a math worksheet on a specific math topic, I didn’t find it in a search, but later found it when searching through their monthly theme pack. So just be diligent in searching.
I do love that that you can save the downloaded items to your computer, for quick access later!
