I just came across this site today and thought it a great site to post here. This is a great learning resource. It is pretty much at the pre K & elementary school level. Our oldest daughter (age 4 1/2) is loving it and has watched like 30 of these videos today. It's full of videos and quizzes.


http://www.brainpopjr.com/ for younger kids

You have to register to use the site and you can get 5 free days access with no credit card required. Unfortunately yearly subscribtions are not that cheap although you can be charged monthly.

I stumbled upon this site a couple of months ago and my kids really liked it as well. I started looking around for information and found an online HS buying co-op (http://www.homeschoolbuyersco-op.org/) that was offering a group buy(school subscription) at a nice discount. Unfortunately BrainPop made them pull down their group buy for some undisclosed reason before I could buy in. I kind of got a sour taste in my mouth about that as there weren't even enough people buying in through the co-op that would even be considered a very small school. I formed the opinion that since their membership fees are so high, and they wouldn't allow a homeschool co-op to buy in at the school rates that they were only in it for the money.

I could be wrong, but that is how I viewed it and for that reason opted not to subscribe.

Thanks for the input. We ended up getting free home access log in through our eldest daughters school with their account. Although we've moved now, we still use it. PM me to inquire.;):shhhh:
