Learning Videos

Yes, we do incorporate screen time in to our learning. My boys are visual and get excited about videos , so I chose to capitalize on their interest to support and reinforce material when appropriate. Netflix, RightNow Media, YouTube, our private library and a bit of PBS documentaries are our frequently used resources. 

There's something for every subject and age level. Here's a sampling so far this year :

Social studies (states intro) and History (Jamestown and John Smith) for M

Colors and letters for L

Bible (creation) and Science (sun with dwarf planets) for D

Screen time is in moderation and comes in to play especially those morning when daddy doesn't start work until 11. The rule during the school year is the only videos allowed before table work is done are educational ones. They each have their favorites they request.
