9.27.2021: Google very recently changed drive links for security reasons, so you may find that when you click on a link for one of my printables that you need to submit a share request. PLEASE only submit one share request per item! These have to be manually confirmed and I will get to them when I get to them. I promise you that sending me 12 requests in rapid succession will not make that happen faster, lol! I do not sit on my computer waiting around to send people instant shares of freebies. Thank you so much for your patience as I try to sort out this latest Google mess.

Your Library's DVD Shelves...

...can be full of great resources for your homeschool.

And they are free (as long as you return them on time and don't incur any late fees, ahem).

We've found Signing Times vids there and a bunch of others we couldn't possibly afford to have on our own shelves.

Something we are using right now: a couple of vids from Schlessinger Media's Ancient Civilizations for Children series. This is one of the few good resources I've been able to find on the ancient Aztecs, Inca, and Maya.

What I like: They don't go overboard with the dramatization (there's some to feed the imagination, but not enough to make my sensitive child flee the room every 2 minutes), they are short (less than 20 minutes), they are not full of crazy speculation, no over the top effects, and they each come with a short teacher's guide with pertinent discussion questions and some pretty good suggestions for extension activities. These fit in nicely with our study of New World Explorers and are a change of pace from the books we've been reading.

This post was unsolicited and uncompensated, just sharing a worthwhile resource.

  1. I was so happy to find Signing Times at our library, too. We own a few, and they have so many more. We just got back to the library last week and now have a huge stack of books to enjoy.
