Free Video Grammar Lessons

freegrammarvertical

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you what a great resource You Tube is for learning and supplementing lessons. While you certainly have to be careful with letting kids watch YouTube, there are so many choices for learning there. One day I was looking for a teaching video to help explain Direct Objects to my son, and I came across this channel by Mr. Hoth.

The actual video and sound quality isn’t the best, but the content is great. He does a great job explaining grammar concepts including diagramming sentences. This channel is best for probably 6th grade and up. Watch this video as an example which shows whether a participle is a verb or an adjective:

Giveaway: Selah's Sweet Dream - Wonderful New Children's/Young Adult Book Only 99¢ for a Limited Time + Giveaway!

This is a guess post from Sarah Falk over at Renaissance Mama.

Good literature for kids can be hard to find!! I’m often comparing notes with other moms about what their kids are reading and enjoying. I’m excited to share Selah’s Sweet Dream with you, because it check a lot of my boxes as a quality book!

Selah’s Sweet Dream is a horse story, through and through. Its heroine is a brave tween, who must overcome obstacle after obstacle in her pursuit of her dream to be an equestrian superstar. I was drawn into the story in the very beginning, and found myself laughing and crying all the way through. Selah’s Sweet Dream is clean – there’s no bad language or inappropriate innuendo. It’s a great story for 10 years old and up, and we mommies definitely enjoy it too! It is also a great read-aloud for younger kids.

It’s gotten rave reviews from Kirkus and has won a Gold award from Feathered Quill.
