As a homeschool mom, I love to be able to incorporate videos into our learning where I can. Whether it’s to supplement the curriculum I already have laid out for them or to keep school running through those tough times like illness or the holidays. Sometimes we both just need a little break from the textbooks to regroup.
Just because mom gets worn down doesn’t mean the learning needs to stop. There are so many wonderful documentaries and educational shows out there to choose from.
I know what you are thinking, “but where do I get all these shows and documentaries? I don’t have the time or the money to go searching it all out.” Now what if I told you It’s as easy as turning on your TV.
PureFlix.com has a wonderful list of educational videos spanning most subjects. Fill up your queue, assign a book to read and some math problems and be done.
Pure Flix has some awesome videos that I see many homeschoolers assigning their kids already, like Drive Thru History, Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution, and the Awesome Science Series with Noah Justice. They have biographies on Amy Carmichael, David Livingstone, Martin Luther and more. Cover music with The Joy of Bach and Great Mr. Handel. Teach them art with videos on Picasso and Raphael. There are even exercise videos like Fit Family to keep you all moving over those cold winter months. Cover foreign language with Everyday Language and keep their math skills sharp with Learn Your Times Tables. The kids can learn about the Bible with children’s programs like Friends & Heroes, What’s in the Bible and Veggie Tales. Have them learn about Biblical Character with shows like Iesodo, 321 Penguins, Auto B Good and Character Builders (all some of my kids favorites).
There are so many documentaries and biographies for them to learn from and the best part is that you can try it for 30 days for FREE. And if you choose to keep it you would be paying less than the cost of a single DVD a month for all that educational programming.
I don’t have access to this much educational content even through my local library system. For me the family friendly content is just an added bonus.
So, what are you waiting for, try it out today for FREE!
