Do you use educational videos to supplement your homeschoolers learning?

We are not video learners per say. I know LOTS of our friends use videos as important teaching tools. We have been 100% online learning for the past 4 years but this year is DIFFERENT! We are using a little bit online but a lot of hands on. We are doing workbooks for our history and science so I am thinking of adding some educational videos this year to supplement our new way of learning! I do need to sit down and go over what our lessons ahead are, so I can find some videos or movies that will work with what we are learning! And we just joined a thing called Happy Scientist this year which has online video learning so I want to use that. It was only $5 to join back in August, which was a great buy and gives me the chance to use it or lose it. $5 is a great deal! And even if we use it once a week, we will get our moneys worth! I would love to hear from other educational video learners and how they use it to your child's best advantage! What resource you use, etc.! We homeschoolers learn best from other homeschoolers IMHO!!! Happy Homeschooling!

Using teacher resources to our advantage!

We are teachers, just flat out say it! We might not be teaching a large classroom but we are teaching! And therefore, as a teacher of my children...I am looking for ANY teaching resource I can get my hands on! Whether by computer, by physically having it or by word of mouth! Whatever DEAL I can get as a homeschool teacher, I will do it! Anything to save some money and get a better deal! I am all about the coupons!LOL If I can find a website with a helping hand or teacher resource, I take full advantage to further my education so I can further my child's education! My favorite teacher resource...Spelling City! They have GOBS of information on there and TONS of ways to use it! That and any deals I can get for curriculum, especially when I get it CHEAP! I got Happy Scientist at back to school time for $5! For a whole year for my boys! Even if we just use it a few was less than a workbook for 1 child! So, what is your best teacher resource? I would LOVE to know!
