We received Educeri Lesson Subscription Service from Educeri ....... Educeri a division of DataWORKS to review. The subscription gave us 12 months of access to Educeri's online and printable educational materials. Educeri covers Kindergarten to Grade 12. Educeri's subjects include: math, science, English language arts, history, art, PE, music, Spanish, English language development, and other resources. Some of these subjects do not currently have learning materials for every grade.
We used the Kindergarten and 1st grade materials for Munchkin and Bean. There are 60 worksheets available for Kindergarten students and 78 worksheets available for 1st grade students. They are mostly language arts and math worksheets, but there is one science and one history worksheet available. Hopefully there will be more beginner science worksheets available in the future!
Each lesson has an online portion, called "Teach Lesson." These are all ready to teach lessons, so this area goes over the teacher portion of the lesson and highlights the key parts to focus on. Then you can print out the materials and lead the lessons. I typically taught the lesson by having the materials printed out and the kids sat across from me while I read from the laptop. Occasionally I sit in the middle, but I usually try to sit across from them so they can see my face when we are talking. This helps with language arts lessons when they watch me enunciate words or sound out letters.
Most of the language arts materials only require a couple pages printed out, while some of the math materials require up to 32, that we've found so far, but you don't have to print and use them all at once. We aimed to do at least one lesson from each subject 3 times a week, in addition to the materials we already use.
We don't have a color printer, so unfortunately all the pictures are in black and white. My kids don't seem to mind, though. This week I printed out ten lessons, five for each child. They were a mixture of Kindergarten and 1st grade math and language arts worksheets.
For math we focused on addition, and measuring length and height. The worksheets we didn't get to were for skip counting, counting to 100, and adding three numbers.
Adding two single digit numbers.
Measuring shorter and longer. My daughter will use this same worksheet later to measure with a ruler.
Shorter and taller. She'll also use this worksheet later to measure with a ruler.
We also printed out worksheets for writing sight words and recognizing beginning and ending sounds.
The lessons are easy to find. They are categorized by grade and subject and you can decide how many lessons you want to see on each page (20/40/60). I had no issues loading the teaching materials or downloading the student worksheets.
Educeri will soon have quizzes available for some of the lessons. I hope they will also expand their art, PE, music, and Spanish sections, as there are only a handful of lessons in each of these subjects. However, there are over 1,000 K-12 lessons available: 413 in math, 525 for English language arts, 22 lessons for science, and 26 lessons for history.
I really liked using Educeri. It had plenty of worksheets to choose from. So far we have been able to find one for every lesson we plan. I do hope they expand their other subject areas, but for math and language arts, they have a ton of materials. Most educational sites that offer worksheets don't have a teaching guide with it, so that was very helpful! We plan to continue using Educeri's educational materials for our homeschooling needs.
