BrainPOP Homeschool is a subscription that allows you to create classes for your students and give them their own login for BrainPOP or BrainPOP Jr.
You can easily assign them movies to watch and any related activities you want them to complete.
You can also see which activities your kids complete on their own and submit to you.
This means you can create assignments for them for as many days at a time that you want. Or, you can have them choose subjects and topics that interest them and submit their work to you.
When You Need A Homeschooling Program That’s More Than Just Fun And Games
There are a lot of online homeschool programs out there and many of them are really great. In our experience, however, many of them can just turn into screen time that appears educational, but when someone asks them what they learned in school that day they flash those blank eyes in response.
In contrast, whenever my kids spend time on BrainPOP Homeschool, our dinner conversations are filled with my kids spouting off about all the new stuff they learned that day! This is my sign that their screen time wasn’t just tune-out time.
In my opinion, there’s one main reason why BrainPOP is so effective at teaching kids. I think it’s rare to have a child who can remember everything they hear or watch. Yes, kids are like sponges, but if the topic isn’t lighting up their eyes chances are they just won’t remember what they learned.
But when kids begin to create something with the information they learned, they almost can’t forget it.
BrainPOP Homeschool has tapped into this phenomenon by creating activities that kids can do with the information they just learned. Not only this, but they have so many different kinds of activities that kids can choose something that’s interesting to them.
Does your child like to draw? Do they like to animate? Code? Play games? All these activities help your child essentially play with what they just learned – and that makes them instant experts on the topic they just studied!
