One of the biggest benefits of homeschooling is that we get to choose exactly how and what our homeschoolers learn. For us, that means lots of educational shows on Netflix, hands-on learning and online classes for homeschoolers.
We tend to steer clear of boring textbooks and overpriced curriculum, in exchange for exciting and new ways of learning.
Finding the Best Online Classes for Homeschoolers
Online classes offer so much flexibility and options that homeschoolers wouldn’t otherwise have. You can easily sign up for classes that work with your schedule or just when you have a break from busy activities.
There are so many benefits to using online classes for homeschoolers.
- Students are able to learn from a different teacher, but from the safety and comfort of their own home.
- No rushing around to get dressed and drag the kids out the door.
- It’s the perfect way for mom to get a few minutes of peace and quiet, while the kids attend an online class.
- Pick and choose topics that interest you! No need to finish out an entire course on a topic that your student lost interest in months ago. Interests change so you need to be flexible.
What is Allschool?
Allschool is an innovative online platform that offers thousands of educational classes for kids. The interactive small-group live classes make learning fun for kids and easy for parents.
Founded in Singapore, Allschool offers high-quality and affordable classes for kids of all ages. Their hands-on approach allows students to interact in the live classes, while learning about everything from dinosaurs to Queen Victoria!
There are a few things that really set Allschool apart from other online classes:
Super easy to sign up for classes:
We signed up for our first class in under 2 minutes! I love the simplicity of adding the classes to your cart so you can quickly check out, using Paypal or one of the other offered payment options.
No prepwork required:
Allschool offers thousands of classes, at all times of the day. This is super helpful for those families with weird work schedules or who prefer to do school at night. All you need is a tablet, PC or phone with a working camera and microphone. That’s it!
Take as many or as few online classes as you’d like:
Last year, we had to quit karate classes because there are some weeks that we’re just super busy. Trying to juggle the sports, classes, and social lives of 3 kiddos can be hard. We were missing far too many karate classes and decided to just call it quits. I knew we could find another alternative to keep the kids busy, without wasting a bunch of money each month.
Allschool allows us to take as many or as few classes as we want! There’s no need to sign up months in advance. If we’re home and bored, we head to Allschool to see what they have happening that day.
I love that we don’t have to participate in a specific number of classes each month or pay an outrageous fee for classes we don’t use.
Easily keep track of all your classes:
One of my favorite features of Allschool is the online calendar. It’s an easy place to keep track of upcoming online classes and allows me to see our week or month at a glance!
