Jen, from Gricefully Homeschoolingand I team up, every Friday, to bring you a list of freebees...on both of our blogs.

PLUS...with the added bonus of this being a weekly link up...where you can showcase your freebies, things you've found online, and also, things you've received in the mail, totally FREE in the last week...or so.

Internet FreeBEEs:

You may or may not know this about me...I am a HUGE movie buff. And so is Ben (husband) and Gwyn. Rowyn really doesn't care too much for TV he would rather play with his toys or play games on my phone. We often will use resources to go along with movies and shows. These resources are great for children of all ages.

There are still plenty of family friendly and educational movies and shows out there that can be used for homeschooling. We don't have cable but do have a Roku Box so we stream lots of stuff that way. We also view stuff online at places like YouTube and Discovery Streaming (which is FREE for GA residents..that reminds me I need to register for this year). And of course we get FREE movies from the library.


Homeschool Movie Club - curriculum for Dolphin Tale, Little Angels, How to Train Your Dragon, The Blind Side, War Horse and Ramona and Beezus

Magic School Bus - lessons for all the shows. This is by far my children's favorite show they can watch the episodes over and over again and they always learn lots of great things. These lessons could also go along with the books.

Homeschool Share - there are lots lapbooks for some great movies and shows like Nims Island, Curious George, Wizard of Oz, Whipping Boy and more. There is also a blank lapbook that you can use with ANY movie.

Samuel Collins Singapore DVD - there is a lesson plan that goes along great with the Singapore episode. If you are not familiar with this DVD series read our review here.

Curious George - lesson plans for several of the Curious George episodes.

Currclick resources - One of my favorite resources and one that not only got me hooked on homeschooling with FreeBEEs but also Gricefully Homeschooling.

-The Role of Movies in Our Homeschool - 2 page how to
-Homeschool Learning Network - they have lots of great unit studies for movies but sorry they are not Free but they are super cheap $1.50
-Movie Response Sheets - can be used with any movie again not Free but 50 cents

Teachers Pays Teachers - There are lots of great resources to use with movies like Around the World in 80 Days, The Alamo, Annie, Polar Express and more. There is also a great resource to go along with Eyewitness DVDs (another one of our favorite shows).

Disney Nature - Disney has AWESOME lesson plans to go with their Nature Series movies African Cats, Chimpanzee, Oceans and Earth.
