I started my account today and played with the features and found the usability suprisingly easy. In my humble opinion, I thought this would make a very useful and enjoyable homeschool resource. It seems the possabilities are endless.
I came up with a list of ways to utilize this website for homeschool. It is as follows:
- Reading comprehension: have your children retell the story you just read, or after finishing a chapter book.
- Writing: have your child create a video of a story, poem, or report they wrote.
- Math: have your child explain a math lesson that they just learned.
- Math: have your child come up with a song that helps them remember math facts and then you can watch it again and agian for review.
- History: Have your child write a fictional story using historical facts they have learned.
- History: Act out a scene from your history book.
- Science: Have your child describe a cycle such as a life cycle or the water cycle.
- Unit Study: Have your child put a presentation together to sum up the key things they learned in the unit study instead of doing a report.
- Highschool: Have your older child practice job interviewing skills, or do a news report.
- Vocabulary/Spelling: Have your child put together a lesson using their vocabulary or spelling words and present it at co-op or to other siblings and friends.
Those are just some of the ideas I had. If you use one of these ideas and create a video please comment below and share your experience. If you come up with a completely new idea please share that as well. It would be great to have a plethera of comments below sharing links to their homeschool videos. I will be adding any videos my children make and share them with you.
