This year I had a pleasant surprise. Since my husband is now a student, and has an email account through the college, we were offered a free six month trail of Amazon Prime. I signed up mostly because it gave me free two-day shipping, and I know with the small budget that I would probably be ordering gifts right up until the week of Christmas. So I was excited to check it out and see what else was available! I was excited to find Amazon Video, and even more excited to find some great home school material available!! Some that we've used for years!
We have used this series for a long time! Both of my boys seamlessly learned their alphabet using this series! We also have used the sight words with much success! We are really excited about trying the Meet the Math Facts series with Brother, since he is just now learning addition and subtraction. These are available for weekly rental for $1.99 or you can purchase it to own for $7.95!
These videos are largely available on Netflix as well, but it was neat to find them on here! These videos are really cute and the kids enjoy watching them. I don't think they have even realized yet that they are educational!
This is absolutely a great program! We are using this steadily as we work through our US History lesson, I highly recommend it, and was glad to see you can purchase the entire video, or you can even buy or rent each lesson seperately! There are also lots of internet resources available just on this video!
Lastly, I have to include this! Some of the videos, such as MaryEllen and Melody (1963) are free right now! But you can also rent or buy Samantha, Grace, and several others! We use American Girl as a baseboard to our American History lesson and love using them, so its awesome after reading the books to see them come alive! We were also excited to see for free our episodes of Wellie Wishers, which we haven't seen yet but just checking them out at the American Girl store was wonderful! Hopefully we can watch them soon!
As I mentioned, all of these videos are available through Amazon Prime, and I highly recommend it! We are new to Amazon Prime, so I'll update this list as we discover new things!!! Thanks for stopping by!!
