More educational TV shows and other random stuff

I recently discovered 2 educational TV shows that I have tracked my kids into watch. The first is Liberty's Kids. This show has been around for a while. I tried to get my older daughter to watch it a few years ago, but I don't think she was old enough to understand what the show was about.The show takes place during the Revolutionary War and each episode has some historical facts mixed into the fictional storyline. My kids are loving this show right now.

The other show is called Crash, Bang, Splat. My friend, Heidi, recommended this show to me and I wasn't sure if I would be able to convince my daughter's to watch a science show, but they like it especially my oldest.

In other news, I am starting another blog called Behind the Mess to chronicle the boring details of our homeschool life. For those interested, I will be posting our learning experiences daily (or weekly if I get busy). It is mostly a way for me to keep records and to see in black and white exactly what we are accomplishing each day, but I figure it might be of interest to other homeschoolers.

Also, I have added the books that we used during our recent weather unit to the booklist side bar. Enjoy!

I use to love Liberty's Kids but they no longer air it on my local PBS station. Lucky for us, our local library carries them on tape.

My kids love Word Girl. The super hero with a super vocabulary. It really is a good show.

Kaily and Kyle like to watch Liberty's Kids. Although, we haven't seen it in a while. I wonder if it is on here anymore or if it comes on when they are in school maybe.....
I've never even heard of the other show. I will have to look for it and check it out.
