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.  (ETA: as of Oct 2017, I discovered a problem in this site, and no longer recommend it without reservation - use it at your own risk)
