My favorite library Math dvds for Kids

 

You don’t have to homeschool like I do to appreciate all the free math (and other) dvds at the local library. If you or your child are visual learners dvds can be a great help. We often watch them over and over. In fact, I’ll even pick up entertaining math (even science/history) dvds that are above their level so they are exposed to the concepts before they can really make sense of it.

 

After all…

… And I believe it!!

 

Truly, not all  dvds are created equal, but some are great and helpful! I want to share the few elementary math dvds that I have borrowed over and over from our local libraries. They are also available on Amazon if you want to purchase them. I’ll be using my affiliate links in this post.

 

My favorite elementary Math dvds by and large have come from Schlessinger Media. I don’t like or approve of  necessarily ALL the different kinds of dvds put out by Schlessinger, but my kids and I have enjoyed and learned from their “Math for Children” dvds that feature the same kids in each dvd. Here’s a list of what I’ve found online – I’m not sure I’ve seen all of these at my local libraries, but I will use this list to look for the ones we have not seen.

 

Measurement

 

Multiplication

 

Telling Time

 

Number Sense

 

Money

 

Fractions

 

Geometry

 

Division

 

Gathering and Graphing Data

 

Addition – (No image)

 

This series of math dvds uses kids to teach kids in a fun, engaging way; and, the dvds I’ve seen are quality made.  I’ve got a couple other brand media-made math dvds I’m borrowing from the library right now and while the content may be really good, the quality of the production is poor: big turn off.  Quality in production really does matter.

 

Do you have any favorite math dvds  you pick up from your local library?

  1. Thank you for this! I just requested some of them from our library! :)

  2. In all the years I have homeschooled, I never thought to look for math DVDs at the library. I will need to check to see if there are any on Algebra. I sure can use the help myself. :)

    • Oh well, I have just the video for you. I recently came across one by Bill Nye “Solving for X” for pre-algebra. It has 4 short entertaining math concept episodes. I struggled big-time with elementary algebra in COLLEGE! My boys aren’t old enough to have to worry about it but we have watched this video over and over already.

  3. I don’t know why it never occurred to me to look for a multiplication dvd at the library. Big DUH moment on my part! Thanks for the suggestion!

    Found you via BYB

  4. Ah, good idea to check the library. I can’t believe how little I do that being a homeschool mom! Thanks!

  5. Love, love, love the library for all its free resources!

    Stopping in from BYB.

  6. These look great! My son really responds to visuals, like DVDs. He’s what you might call “radically unschooled” at the moment, as a very active 6 year old with NO interest in sitting still. :-) I think he would enjoy these. Off to check our library! #BB100
