English: Homeschool Video Fun Day

English: Homeschool Fun Video Day
English (aka Language Arts), like every other academic subject, requires some memory work.
Memory work that might not always be fun. BUT, if you learn that material with fun videos over lunch, or on a down day, you can sail through English Memorization without unnecessary unpleasantness.

Here are some videos that we find both fun and useful for memorizing all that stuff. We like to watch them during homeschool lunch break, or on sick or down days.

I originally got this idea from Homeschooling Patriots
Check out her blog for several more Parts of Speech Videos. After I found her idea, I then made my own lists for several different subjects.

Unfortunately, on Youtube the commercials aren't targeted to the audience, and sometimes very inappropriate things are shown. Which means that there are times that I've had a h0rr0r film ad (or other junk I'd rather not see) pop up right before a preschool video with puppets. For this reason, and because I like to be sure that junk in general isn't coming into our school day while I'm folding laundry, I save the videos to a desk top folder for convenience.  And, if a favorite video is "taken down," we still have it. It's also nice if the internet crashes while we're doing school : )

I like this site for saving my videos - it's free and I've never had any trouble from it.

  4. That's a great way to get around the commercials! Even though we don't homeschool, I'm going to have to remember that tip for my kids for other activities. I do love YouTube, though, for helping kids learn a variety of different skills. Thanks for sharing your resources!

  5. Oh, I wish they had these videos when I was young. I'm sure I would have had a much better understanding of English grammar. Thanks for sharing at Together on Tuesdays :)

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology.

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
