Homeschooling with Media


Anyone who knows me knows that my children are huge media freaks!!


Often our homeschool school year themes are based on movies or books that have led to screenplays!! So over the years I have been thankful to have discovered so many resources for schooling with videos and movies.


I wanted to share some of our favorites with you!!
