Recycling for Kids - Recycling Facts - Recycling Factory - Why is Recycling Important?
 
05:12
Did you know that recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy that could power your TV for three hours? That's how important recycling is, it can give you back lots of things in return for the elements that you have recycled when you threw them away. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UuUeoyYmxI) What is recycling? Recycling is the process of converting waste into reusable objects to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, energy usage, air pollution and water pollution by decreasing the need for conventional waste disposal and lowering greenhouse gas emissions compared to plastic production. Have you ever heard of the waste hierarchy that says "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle"? This shows how much important it is to reduce the waste you bring out and try to reuse those things you have before going to the final decision which is throwing them away for recycling. Recycling is the reason behind separating paper from plastic from aluminum when one is throwing them in the trash, to make it easier for the men sent from recycling companies to collect the trash to sort and separate these things and let them go directly for the recycling part. Bryson Recycling Centre helped the kids understand the different benefits of recycling which they are supposed to know more about. There are two important types of benefits which people will gain when they decide to recycle - even companies and big organizations will feel the difference - those economic benefits as well as those environmental benefits. The environmental benefits include the energy that will be saved everyday by not producing new materials, it helps in preventing millions of tons of materials from coming into the landfills and saving space for the garbage that cannot be re-purposed, recycling also keeps the litter overflow to a minimum and thus helps in keeping the Earth looks good, and it also conserves the Earth's natural resources like raw materials, minerals, trees, etc. On the other hand, there are some economic benefits gained from recycling that include opening new jobs and reducing the money that is spent on the waste, which is considered an important part of keeping any country in the world working in a successful way. The recycling process starts at home when one reduces the amount of waste he/she produces and from reusing those material instead, but then the journey is completed by sorting these materials and giving the recycling companies the chance to make use of them. The car that passes to take the waste separates the plastic, the aluminum and the paper from one another and goes to the recycling place just to add every single type to the rest collected before. At Bryson Recycling Centre, we knew that even though people tend to separate their waste to make it easier for recycling, the plastic still needs to go through a machine that will recognize everything that is plastic and everything that is not to separate them both from one another, but paper and aluminum are usually ready for the recycling phases (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-N5jb-fWTs). Recycling is definitely important for both saving energy and for opening new jobs for people. Teaching the kids and telling them more about the waste, the recycling process it goes through, separating the waste, and all these stuff is very important to let them follow these steps from the early beginning and understand the reasons behind what they are doing and the separation phase they are considering. On LearningMole, there are different educational videos that teach the kids about the world they are living in; about tornadoes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWA9dpLtNrU), tsunamis (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1mozwcqKBE), thunder and lightning (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i8hYEkiqSE), hurricanes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ye0wWBOKIZY) and water cycle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jGvvUQnKqY). Always choose the right methods to teach your kids new information, we believe that videos are always helpful if they are presented in an exciting way that would grab the attention of the kids.

Mental Math Strategies for Addition from LearningMole
 
06:05
To help parents homeschooling their kids with math, there are different mental math strategies that we would recommend. It is important to develop the mental math strategies of the child in order to know the time and place for the mental strategies and also know the time and place for the written methods. It is important to start this journey from the early years in order to give the child the chance to make the right decision about when to use a specific method when dealing with the different mathematical operations that they come to solve. In this educational video, there are three different mental math strategies that we have here, the usage of the fingers, counting on which is used with addition and eventually the counting back which is mainly about subtraction. The basic addition and subtraction, which is all about adding and subtracting one more, is the one to start with in order to give the child the chance to process this in their minds. One of the very basic methods used in counting or adding is the fingers. Kids depend on their fingers in order to bring out the final answer for the equation they are trying to solve. All what the kids will do when asked to add 3+1 for example, is put the three fingers on one hand and one finger on the other, combine them together and count the answer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx4R1YkxPso). Getting the child to actually start visualizing the whole thing is important, to start imaging the three fingers in their head and the one finger which will be added to them in order to also visualize the final answer. At some point, the kid might still look at their fingers while doing the whole calculation in their heads but without actually going through the process of physically counting those fingers. Once the child is done with the fingers and could actually visualize the whole thing in head, they could then move forward to counting on. Counting on is another mental math strategy that is really important because it gets the child to think about the sequencing of numbers, the order of numbers, and all such mathematical skills. In counting on, it is important to stress on the fact that placing the bigger number first is always important especially with mental addition. Kids should reorder the equation in order to place the big numbers first before moving forward to the smaller one which they will count in their heads. Try to test the child's mind and bring two different equations, one with the bigger number first and one with the bigger number placed at the end, and ask them which one should go first and how to do the calculation (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdux-Xn35qE). Once the kids are done with the counting on method and are ready to move forward with a new mental math strategy, they will then learn the counting back. Counting back is related to the subtraction element and in this case the kids will need to depend on their fingers once again to make it easier for them, by placing three fingers up and then removing one from them to find that the answer is 2 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5gutmYmsaA). With practice, kids will be eventually able to do these different calculations without the need to count on their fingers because they will realize that it is just a process to make it easier and that they could easily do it in their own heads. Again, using the mathematical vocabulary and terminology is important by telling the kids to count on which is the same as addition or else telling them to count back which is the same as subtraction and taking away, all these will make the understanding of the mathematical equation in front of them much easier and they will know what they are supposed to do or solve. Finally, part of the mathematical language we are referring to is letting the child know more about what number comes before, what numbers comes after, what number comes in between and so forth, which are all things the kids will know about with practicing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2BVO76JujQ). Start with teaching the kids to use their fingers to learn counting on and counting back, and then count in their heads.

Earning Money - Earn Money for Kids - How to Make Money - Financial Education for Kids Videos
 
02:47
Teaching your child the value of money is so important. This financial education for kids video will encourage your child to really think about money and how they can earn it. Money for kids is a lifelong skill that children should start developing at an early age - learning money, teaching money skills and money management for kids can be fun too! Adults know what earning money is and how it should be done and they also know its importance in their lives, but kids are not yet aware of what earning money is, how they should do it and they are not even aware of its importance. Parents should at this point teach their kids how to earn money and even help them do that at an early age at home by paying them for helping out with specific things (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQgOJoZduRc). Don't be that type of parent who pampers his/her kids and bring them what they ask for immediately because this will make things harder for them in the future, they might fail to depend on themselves and they will also fail to give money any value and spend it wisely. Earning money in general happens through getting a job or offering a service to the public, it could be a job that you get paid for depending on the hours you work and it could be a job that you receive a salary for for working five days per week. People might receive their salary or payment daily, weekly or monthly and this will always differ according to the profession of the person and the job vacancies available for him/her. Financial education for kids is one of the things that parents should pay attention to while they are homeschooling them, they should give them the chance to know the value of money and the different saving techniques related to it, such as bank accounts and the types of payment methods, etc. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0cbjc54kjI). Financial literacy for kids starts at helping them to understand the small world of money they are related to and giving them a hint about the greater one that is about banks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxmTTvGezro). When it comes to saving money, kids should understand that in order to save there must be a source of money in the first place. For a kid, it is hard to find a job from which he/she could get paid and that is the reason why they will wonder how could they actually earn and save money at an early stage of their lives. This is where parents should help with giving them some money on the things they help with at home, whether big or small, but should let them feel that they are getting paid for something. There are other things related to finance and financial education and literacy that kids could be taught about, such as knowing more about payslips and what they actually are (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5Qu1YN43P8) and understanding the world of money in general; in other words, kids should always be aware of the idea that money has its value and that they are not supposed to spend it on buying things they don't need and they should also make some effort to get it and feel the difference. Homeschooling is all about teaching the kids important things that they should know in general about life, it is not just about math or English, and this is beneficial because it will help them to know the value of everything surrounding them and the importance it might be carrying. When it comes to money, it is one of those several things we are referring to and one of the things that kids should give its importance and know the value it carries, they should know that what they want will never be in their possession without having the amount of money it needs. Learningmole is helping parents homeschooling their children to get creative, fun and interesting ideas to teach their kids math, English, crafts and cooking at home, but it is also sharing some information about science, finance and general tips which the kids will need to get informed with (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abI5pHgxp4M). Financial education UK or financial education for beginners is a great way to start - check out this financial education video and let us know what you think :) Visit www.learningmole.com for more educational lessons and videos in Maths, English, Crafts and Cooking.

Inverse Operations - Subtraction for Kids - Subtraction Games - Inverse Math - Addition
 
03:01
What is inverse operation in math? Inverse operation in math is all about using the three numbers in the mathematical equation in different orders and subtracting them from one another to double check the first answer that the kid got in the first trial. Subtraction is one of the different mathematical operations that are found in the world of math and which comes in addition to addition, multiplication and division. There are different techniques and math games that are used for teaching kids subtraction, in this educational video we are depending on the main written technique but Michelle intended to use the help of the building blocks or the cubes as they are sometimes referred to. The inverse operations or the inverse math as it is also known is the technique of changing the position of the numbers of the equation itself in order to double check the answer you have reached. One of the examples is 4 + 1 = 5 that is the answer for the equation that we all know and which the kids could even calculate on their own fingers, but in order for them to double check this answer, they could change the places of the numbers in the equation and thus it would either be 5 - 1 = 4 or else 5 - 4 = 1. This means that the answer that one reached at the beginning is right since the other two equations would bring the two other numbers in the equation. Using the building blocks or the cubes is helpful at this point because the kids could do their equations on it, they could keep changing the position of the numbers which they have already created from these Lego pieces and see what the final answer would turn out to be. It is really interesting to play this subtraction game with the kids while trying to teach them what the inverse operation is and why it is considered important. Math games that teach kids subtraction are different and using the Lego pieces could be done in so many different ways and they might all be interesting and challenging for the kids (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ART8iVG3yHg). The whole idea lies in using the toys and games that the kids love to play with in general in order to grab their attention. Through our channel, there are different educational videos that teach kids subtraction through several ways, there are those games with play doh, those with Lego pieces and building blocks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ART8iVG3yHg), there are those which could be played with general tools around the house or even with treats to excite the kid (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-YBC4LPOQw) and there is the basic subtraction method which is the first thing kids learn when it comes to subtraction, whether at school or at home (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i62H7oT4LZw). There are different math tricks related to the mathematical operations and there are also those related to subtraction and those tricks include the different games which the kids could play in order to learn how to subtract (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdlIHYRnjAg). At an early age, kids might not understand what double check means or how they are supposed to do it when it comes to math, and that is exactly when parents are supposed to teach the kid what is inverse operation and how it could help them to double check their answer especially when it comes to addition and subtraction and tell them that this is the way they will be double checking their answer. The main purpose behind teaching kids math at home or in school is to give them the chance to implement it on the daily real life they are living, which is also the reason why parents could teach them through questions they impose throughout the day by asking them to count, add or subtract something for them. This will always train the kids and make them more able to handle the different mathematical operations they face. Do your kids know what inverse operation means? Teach them the importance of double checking through using the inverse operations and let us see how it is going to work out with them. If you have any questions regarding addition and subtraction then let us know about them and give us the chance to help you :-)!

Mental Math for Kids - Subtraction for Kids
 
02:51
There are different mental math strategies used for kids to teach them addition and subtraction and make it all much easier for them. When it comes to subtraction then partitioning and removal are from the easiest strategies found that one could depend on. Mental math is based on the idea of teaching the child to do some calculations in the mind in addition to those which are going to be written on the paper, so even if they are going to depend on writing down the steps they are taking, it is important that they also keep their minds working and count in their heads and on their fingers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jkrRRXgFq8). The whole idea behind partitioning and removal in subtraction is to partition the smaller number in the equation to tens and unites and then remove those smaller numbers from the bigger one. For example, if the equation is 73 - 22 then the kid will need to think about the smaller number which is 22 but in dividing it to tens and unites, so it will be 20 and 2. The removal part will start with 73 - 20 which will be 53 and then 53 - 2 which will end up being 51. So the final answer for the equation 73 - 22 will be 51. Kids should always know that in subtraction, the smaller number should always be removed and taken away from the bigger one and that is different from addition which could come in any order but the strategy of reordering the numbers to keep the bigger one in mind and add count the smaller one is one of the most famous which makes addition much easier for the child (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdux-Xn35qE). How to subtract? Subtraction might be a little bit more difficult for kids than addition because they should think and count inversely and not in the ordinary way they are used to, but if they knew some of these mental math strategies or played any of the different mathematical games, they could manage to subtract easily without finding any difficulty in the process (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVM8iQMaZN8). Educating the child about the different vocabulary words that are used instead of subtraction is beneficial because sometimes they are perceived in an easy way, making it all appear more understandable for them. These words include removing, taking away, minus, and they could always substitute the word subtracting to make it easier for the child to understand what they should be doing. Those different mental processes that are done in these strategies make the whole subtraction thing much easier, more manageable, but the most important thing is to make sure that your child is feeling comfortable while using this strategy. When the kids are thinking through this process, it is important that parents follow these different steps and reinforce the child to go through them. The different mental math strategies and activities that parents could use in order to teach kids how to add and how to subtract are numerous, and the partitioning and removal is one of the most famous for being easily used and depended on and for making the whole equation much easier when it comes to solving it. There are different mathematical games used out there which could make math much more interesting for the child and most of these games could be even played with the toys and objects which are already scattered all around the house and which the kids usually love to play with (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ART8iVG3yHg). Practicing is the most important when it comes to learning; the more the kids practice, the more they will manage to learn. Parents should never worry because their kids will eventually learn everything even if they are going to take longer time than expected, they just need to understand the methods and strategies used, practice the techniques, and then go on with total understanding. Partitioning and removal strategy in mental math used for subtraction is one of the most famously used and it is also one that makes it all easier for the child to know what they are supposed to do, what are the different steps which they are supposed to take and eventually come to the final part which is knowing that this is a mental strategy.

Multiplication for Kids - How to multiply - Lifelong Learning - Primary Education - Double Addition
 
04:32
Multiplication for kids goes through different difficulty steps which they are supposed to take one by one, and one of these different steps is teaching the kids about math vocabulary which will help them to understand what they are supposed to do in multiplication. Multiplication is also known as "double addition" and this is very important for kids to understand because it will make the equation easier for them to solve. When for example the kid is asked about the answer for 4 x 4, he/she should be well aware that this is the same as adding 4 + 4 + 4 + 4, which eventually means double addition. Translating multiplication to addition on paper is important and this will be the first thing for the kid to learn, but sometimes giving this kid the chance to think in order to prove that he/she really understands and knows is also beneficial. Building blocks is one of the games that kids usually love to play with and using them to teach the kids how to multiply will turn out to be helpful at some point. One of the ideas that Michelle came up with to teach the kids how to multiply with using those building blocks is to ask the kids a question and let them translate it into these blocks to get the answer. At first, some kids might not get the idea very well and thus might make some mistakes, but later on they will understand it all and will know how to translate the multiplication equation given to them into an addition one and put it down into those blocks. This makes the whole idea of multiplication much easier for the kids to understand and know how to apply, of course it might not work with big numbers but it will still manage to help with those learning multiplication at the first stage of it and will not be dealing with big numbers yet. Reaching the other stages of learning multiplication, the kids could use other methods and techniques that would suit the number they have and make the whole process easier for them. There is the number one used method which is the times tables that kids usually learn the first thing at school (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r6IN-h9d-I), there is the grid table method which suits the big numbers coming in the mathematical equations for the kids (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9TWSto7FSU), there is also something known as the multiplication table which is a table with numbers from 1 to 100 on which the kids could count the times tables of different numbers and not just one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKom4XkX7-8) and there are some multiplication games for kids like Bingo or doing multiplication along with some aerobics moves which the kids will also find challenging and will love playing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13LmvlsiwOw). There are different math tricks that kids should learn to help them solve any math problems they face and know how the different math operations should be solved (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v-28FdX3m8). The most interesting thing about math is the fact that you could teach your kids with using their toys and games to make it look more exciting for them; it could be with play doh, with Lego pieces, with building blocks as we have shown you in this video, and it could be with the little small cartoon characters which they love to play with. This educational video was to help parents homeschooling their kids to teach them how to multiply by translating multiplication to addition and use those building blocks to make it easier for them. This is used at the early stage with the kids to make it easier for them but it will not work with the big numbers and thus will not work with the upper grades. There are lots of creative ideas to try while teaching your kids at home and most of them could even happen with using the tools scattered all around the house, so never worry about making the process of homeschooling interesting for the kids.

Math Games - Bingo - Mental Maths - KS1 - KS2 - Addition - Multiplication - Division - Subtraction
 
02:57
Bingo is the game that this video is teaching the kids to get educated in math through, it is the game that serves all the different operations of math; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and it is also the one game that suits all the different age groups. Teaching kids math through playing games have proved to be one of the successful methods that teachers use at school especially when it comes to those games that are challenging to some extent, just like Bingo. Bingo is a mathematical game that needs a number of children to play it - it could be done to one kid but would not be as challenging - and that is why we consider it best to either be followed at school or else at home but for more than one kid. The idea behind Bingo is to challenge the kids' skills and knowledge of math by choosing six different numbers - you could also let the kids be the ones to choose them - and then start asking them mathematical questions that will either have the answer on the board or else will not. If the question you have asked is answered on the white board, the kids should shout "Bingo" and say what this answer is and the first one to say "Bingo" would actually be the winner. It is sometimes good to ask questions which their answers are not written to see whether the kids are giving their minds the chance to think first or are just shouting "Bingo" to be the winners. The best thing about Bingo game in mental maths is that it serves with all the mathematical operations, it works with teaching kids how to add, how to subtract, how to multiply and how to divide and thus it ends up being a good chosen game no matter what the lesson you are going to teach the kid is. Not just that, but Bingo is also good for all the different age groups, all what you will need to do is change the level of difficulty of the question according to the age of the kids you are asking or playing with. Maths could be taught through different ways and by using different games, those which are suggested for teachers at school as well as those which are suggested for parents homeschooling their kids. Some games need a little bit of thinking with a challenging mood but there are those which are played with some toys that kids prefer at such an early age; such as play doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw91epryD28), Lego (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roMEZv1OObc), building blocks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSMd8kMHIHo) and other small toys which you could get creative with using while teaching your child. There are different educational videos on this channel that promote ideas for parents and teachers searching for ways to teach their kids math, English, crafts and even cooking, you could work on any idea you find interesting if you please, but we are trying to make it more interesting for your kid to learn and love those lessons given at home. Counting for kids is the initial step usually taken in math and there are different games for that (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wvSw8hoXPI), English could be taught through playing with Lego as well and not just maths (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmmNwX1bPH4), and knowing more mathematical vocabulary is also an important thing when it comes to teaching and homeschooling the kids (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHi2ZVicVrI). It is not just about teaching the kids something, but it is also important to bring some educational stories for them, let them hear and watch a video that would deliver a piece of information at the end and which they will enjoy watching (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMDndNpqd8I). Education could get creative to a great extent and this would be about all the ways and methods used in teaching the kids. Always be creative, motivate the kids while you are teaching them with playing along and also trick them with the questions you tend to ask to test their knowledge and answers and know whether they are giving the right answers or just playing around. If you have any questions about Bingo game for maths or any other general questions, let us hear them and give you the answers and help that we have and you need :-)!

How is Paper Recycled? - Paper Recycling - Waste Paper Recycling - Paper Recycling Process
 
01:42
What is recycling and why is it important? Maybe that's the first question kids will ask when they are faced with this topic before they bring themselves to the more detailed information related to how is recycling done. Waste is usually divided into different categories to be sorted out for the recycling phase; paper, plastic, glass and aluminum and every single type goes through a different recycling process to bring it back into a new product. How is paper recycled? Wasted paper goes through different steps in the process of recycling to come back to new paper that is clean in rolls and ready to be cut and sent back to the shops. Recycling paper is considered a simple process that starts with collecting the paper from the recycling bin and then this paper is taken to a recycling plant. Paper is not all treated in the same way, but before being recycled, the recycling plant it is sent to separates it into types and grades and it is then washed with soapy water to remove inks, plastic film, staples and glue. The paper in the next step is placed into a large holder where it is mixed with water to create "slurry" and to this slurry there are different materials added that eventually lead to different products being created, such as card boards, newspaper and office paper. Coming to the final part in this process is actually bringing something out of this slurry in order to send it out to the shops. The slurry is spread using very large rollers to transform it into large thin sheets before it is left to dry. The dried paper is then rolled and becomes ready to be dried and sent back to the shops. Recycling is important because it saves energy and it also opens work places for people which means that it helps in reducing unemployment. "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" is the hierarchy that is famously known and which proves that recycling is truly important for the reasons we have mentioned, but it is also important for people to try and reduce their waste and reuse the materials they have, even if they will not be the ones doing so, they could give them to those who might be in need for them (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_Ufbm5ZkBY). Kids should get well educated about recycling and its importance and it would be a plus if they got the chance to know how things are recycled (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UuUeoyYmxI). It is important to choose the right methods and educational resources which you will consider the base for teaching your kids. We believe that games and educational videos are always helpful, but the videos should be always laid in an interesting tone and with the attracting pictures. Recycling is part of science and there are other fields within science that kids should be educated about as well. We have different educational videos on our channel that could teach kids more about hurricanes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ye0wWBOKIZY), about the cycle of water (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jGvvUQnKqY), videos that teach kids about tsunamis (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1mozwcqKBE), about tornadoes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWA9dpLtNrU) and there are even some information found about the planets (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTQKy19e2OQ) and those detailed information related to the hottest, the coldest, the biggest and the smallest. The everyday life of any kid out there is filled with toys and games which they always play with or else the cartoon channels which they enjoy watching, and that is exactly the reason why we consider these as the two most important to be used in creative ways in order to bring new information to the mind of the kid and give him/her the chance to know more about the surrounding world they are considered part of. Recycling is one of the most important processes done nowadays all around the world and that is why kids should know of its importance and understand how the whole process goes. If you have any questions, please send us and we will love to answer back! There are other recycling processes done with aluminum and glass which we would bring you later through other videos, just keep this excitement on :-)!

How to Make French Crepes - Pancake Day - Belfast Cookery School - Pancake Recipe for Kids
 
07:09
Are you willing to teach your kids a recipe or two and make them able to prepare themselves a simple treat? LearningMole is not just to teach kids science, maths and crafts, but there are also those educational videos that would let them know about some recipes. Belfast Cookery School helped the kids in this educational video to know how to prepare French crepes and gave them a simple recipe so that they could easily do it. Of course your kids are not big enough to be kept in the kitchen alone - if they are the same ages of Aaron and James - and use the tools inside on their own, but they could still be there while you are preparing them and give you the help you might need. Who out there would say no to crepes? Kids will never do and that is why the chef, Ian Hunter, decided to give them the tips for something they would love to do and eat. Our chef at Belfast Cookery School gave the recipe to the kids and also made the crepe with them, telling them through the way how to pour the mixture into the pan and how to flip it - he even flipped it over and succeeded, upon their request. One of the things we loved about Belfast Cookery School and the way the Chef helped the kids to learn how to make French crepes was the counting technique which the chef paid attention to and made it the task of the kids - he first asked them to count the number of eggs he was going to use into the mixture, and then he asked them to count to three for him to flip over the crepe inside the pan. It is always important to pay attention to the details and while you are teaching your kids to learn something, make sure to insert some other educational lessons within the process; let them count, let them solve problems, let them choose names and words or support you with some, etc. because that is the effective way that would keep the information in the mind of the child and give him/her the chance to recall it whenever he/she needs. There are lots of ways to engage the kids in the cooking process and teach them a new recipe to try. In the case of Ian Hunter, the chef at Belfast Cookery School, he first told the kids about the ingredients which they are going to create the crepe with, he let them help with putting the flour into the big bowl, and finally he gave every one of them a whisk - himself included - and they all worked on creating this mixture and preparing it. This is an effective way to let the kids feel that they have done something, learned a new recipe for a thing they love to eat and at the same time to remember the ingredients they have used because they have actually gone through the whole process. Some people go further than this and let the kids do more and share more in the cooking process, but again this will all depend on the kid's age. Another technique Hunter chef used with Aaron and James while preparing the French crepes was giving them the permission to add their touch at the end of the journey and decorate the crepes with the fresh fruits which he have prepared for them earlier - and of course they were the ones to eat the whole thing at the end of their mission :-) LearningMole offers different educational videos and resources which the kids could depend on to learn something new and this happens in different fields that include science, maths, crafts and of course cooking. In science, we have brought facts for the kids about the solar system (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTQKy19e2OQ), we have informed them about the hottest planet (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMDndNpqd8I), the biggest planet (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h7DLa7o2Lc) and the smallest planet (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7E7zoFBwLU0) and other things as well. In math, we have lots of videos that teach kids multiplication, subtraction, addition and division through using Lego (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roMEZv1OObc) and also through using play doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBsj-t9809E) which is also helpful when it comes to creating shapes and patterns. If you have any questions, shoot them and we will be more than pleased to answer you and give you the help needed!

Writing, Spelling and Phonics in English for Kids - Learning English
 
10:11
Learning English comes in different steps, it starts with learning the English alphabet, spelling those letters and knowing more about phonics, and then coming to the part of learning to write down these letters. There are those "tricky" words in the English dictionary and language which we should stress a little bit on. These words might be pronounced differently even when the attention is given to phonics and how the letters should be pronounced in general, and thus they might be difficult for the kids to pronounce them correctly at the beginning and before they get used to the whole thing. In this educational video, the main focus is on those words which are considered tricky when it comes to how they are pronounced and which help the kids to spell them correctly and at the same time help them to write these letters down. Using the white color crayon and the paint mixed with water is the main focus behind this creative method in teaching the kids the English language. The parent will use the white crayon to write down some tricky words on a piece of paper so that the kid could not see them, and then the kid will use the paint and move over the paper trying to reveal these words. When the kids reveal the written words and turn this magical game on, they will then need to spell these words correctly before they move forward to the next step. After making sure that the kids are good at spelling the words you have written for them, the next step should then be followed and which is all about reversing the places and letting the kid write down a specific word several times on the paper while the parent is not looking and then the parent be the one trying to find the words. Repetition is important because that's how the kids learn and manage to remember the things they are actually learning. Choosing these creative, fun, and magical learning methods will also keep the kids excited and thus will always make them look forward to repeat all by themselves, which also happens when parents leave the kids be the ones leading the way. Using this method proved to be both successful and interesting when it was about teaching the kids the English letters and how to write them down, we have tried that with the letter "L' and the kids loved writing these hidden letters down on the paper and then work the magic with their parents while they are finding them out with the paint (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVL9oskIn10). Through our long experience in teaching the kids, we have found out that kids don't like the simple lessons when they are boring, but they love those which they could enjoy learning while they are playing and at the same time leading a challenge, which is the thing happening in this video - when James was the one taking the lead, he gave orders and was learning very well when it came to reading the letters, spelling them, and writing them down. There are lots of different ways which kids could depend on in order to learn the English alphabet and know how to write down the letters, and these change according to the method or object used, such as play-doh, Lego pieces, paints and colors, etc. Here are some videos to check which are related to learning to write down the letters: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmmNwX1bPH4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzwoPNQk1XY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZT8ImgjSA-g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jg0bhC0gqRU Generally speaking, when it comes to learning the English alphabet, there are different ways that this could happen through, it could be through singing the ABC nursery rhyme at the beginning (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smcw82TTh_M), it could happen through letting the kids bring out words that start with every single letter in the alphabet (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UeKeWYAN7M) and it could also happen through the different games that could be played in order to bring such results as the one we experienced in this video. Enjoy watching this video along with your kids, play with them, let them lead the game, and watch out for them learning to write, spell and read those tricky words out loud without problems.

The Heart - Heart Information for Kids - Heart Facts for Kids - Circulatory System Facts for Kids
 
03:38
The heart shape that people draw does not represent the real shape of the heart inside the human body, but it might be the closest thing to it. What else do the kids know about the heart, how it serves the body and how one should protect it? The heart pumps when one is happy, feared, when one is doing exercise and it pumps to give the body a life to live. The main task of the heart is to pump blood around the body through the veins and the arteries; the veins carry the blood to the heart and the arteries carry the blood away and this blood carries oxygen which means that the heart is the main source of the oxygen that we live with and without it, we will die. The heart pumps by contracting and relaxing and it is made up of four chambers, two on each side. The chambers on the top are known as the right and the left atrium and those on the bottom are known as the left and right ventricle. These chambers have their tasks as well; the oxygen in the heart carries rich blood that flows from the lungs and into the left atrium and then it is pumped out to the rest of the body for the left ventricle which needs an oxygen refill called the deoxygenated blood that flows into the right atrium and back out the right ventricle to the lungs; in other words, we could say that it is like a big circle that happens within the body. What the kids might find interesting is the fact that all what we have mentioned from tasks done by the heart are done in just one beat and this might not be expected or even believed. The average heart beat of the human being is 72 beats per minute and according to some calculations done, it means that when the person reaches 66 years old, his/her heart would have beaten 2.5 billion times. Your heart is your life and there are some important habits which the kids should get used to from their early life in order not to find it difficult when they are old, these habits should help them take care of their hearts and keep them working in a healthy manner. In order to keep the heart healthy, one should stay away from smoking and from the tobacco products, one should do exercises and manage a healthy body weight, follow a healthy diet plan that is about good amounts of fruits and vegetables and finally don't eat too much sugar and fats. The heart is a hard worker and it never rests and we should all take care of it and give it the support it will be in need for. The kids grow up knowing that their heart is the reason behind their survival, but not all of them know why or what it actually does to keep them surviving - let your kids see this video in order to know more about the tasks of the heart. Science is one of the different fields that LearningMole serves educational videos and resources for in addition to maths, crafts and cooking. There are lots of things that come under the science category, we have those facts about solar system for kids (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTQKy19e2OQ), we teach the kids some facts about Tsunamis (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1mozwcqKBE), water cycle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jGvvUQnKqY) and lots of other things which all come under the same name which is "science". You could also check those links that could let the kids know more about finance (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQgOJoZduRc) and the things and facts which they could know more about and learn when they are still at this early age (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHwcbRjWEds). It is important to build a conversation with your kids when you are teaching them something because it will help you to know how the kids reached a specific answer or what the other ways that they know about are. You should also let them ask you and avoid being the one who is always responsible for asking. In the case of the educational videos that tell a specific story to educate the kids about a specific thing, you could ask the kid a question or two at the end of the video to know whether they got the whole story and understood what they have been watching or else need more details about the subject. If you have any questions or suggestions, send them over right away :-)! Visit www.learningmole.com for more educational lessons and videos in Maths, English, Crafts and Cooking.

Recycling for Kids - Recycling Facts for Kids - Why is Recycling Important - Importance of Recycling
 
05:44
The importance of recycling is something that we should be teaching the younger generation at a very early age. How to recycle for kids, what is recycling and recycling projects for kids are all areas we should be getting involved in (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_Ufbm5ZkBY) It's 'Our World' we all need to take care of it by educating children with recycling facts and the benefits of recycling, we are allowing them to see why recycling is just so important (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0769pw2_pY). This video explores the "reduce, reuse, recycle" symbol, gives interesting facts about recycling and explains the significance of the recycle logo. It helps to teach children to reuse and to understand the benefits of recycling. Recycling saves the planet in so many different ways, it saves the environment and at the same time it offers people jobs which they could fulfill, which means that it also helps with solving the problem of unemployment. Did you know that throwing away any box or bottle could do much damage to the planet? This is not just because you are throwing away one box or bottle - which is still something that could make a difference - but because you are not the only one living on this planet and there are billions of people who would also think in the same way. In the UK alone, there are 12.5 million tonnes of paper used and in order to obtain one tonne of newspaper, one will need to use 24 trees, which means that if people did not reduce what they are using and recycling it, they might at some point realize that all the trees they have been growing on the planet are not longer there. It is interesting to let kids know that recycling is not of an easy process that the things people use undergo, but there are some cases like paper for example which are considered easier than the others. Some plastic bottles for example could take up to 500 years to decompose, which means to break down, and this means that some plastic parts could stay around for 500 years, which will make pollution or even worse, they might kill the sea creatures if they are thrown in the ocean around the world, it could kill around 1 million creature - that is really a number that people should think about and start reconsidering once again. When it comes to recycling, there are lots of things for kids to know that might astonish them and these are usually related to the calculations that scientists and professional people do considering the things that people use every single day. One of these interesting facts that could give people the push to start reducing, reusing and recycling is about the number of plastic cups that they use on a daily basis and which could line the Earth planet if they are placed beside one another every single day. Recycling is very important, actually recycling one tonne of paper could save about 17 trees, 6,000 gallons of water and it produces less air pollution, all that of course comes in addition to the job vacancies that appear to the world and saves lots of those who are failing to find an appropriate job. The problem with not recycling is the consequences that would be carried on the planet. The paper that is not recycled could actually cause air pollution because it is buried in a landfill and the landfill rubbish rots and as it rots it can produce a dangerous greenhouse gas called methane, which could increase global warming (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-N5jb-fWTs). Recycling is very important and kids should understand from an early age that recycling could help them save the environment since recycling one glass bottle could actually save 50% less water and 20% less air pollution, which would be good steps taken along with other things that could be recycled and lots of other steps taken in saving the environment in general. It is not just about plastic and paper that could be recycled, but there are other materials that could go into the list as well, such as glass, metal, fabrics and electronics, so always consider recycling and how things could be recycled before moving forward with throwing away your things and know more whether they could be recycled or not. The interesting things which kids might not even believe is that the food and garden waste could be also recycled, which is the reason why people are always asked to separate their waste when they are throwing it away to separate everything and make it easier for the people who collect it to put every single type with the rest and place it directly to be recycled. Recycling is so important and it could save the environment and at the same time help people and reduce unemployment, so people should always consider reducing, reusing and recycling the things they use no matter what the material they are using is. Let your kids know more about recycling and what it is and give them what they need to know the importance of it. Send us your feedback about the video and tell us what did your kids think as well.

Recycling Facts for Kids -  Recycling for Kids - Why is Recycling Important? - About Recycling
 
01:49
What can you recycle? Waste and trash is sorted out after being thrown away into different categories; paper, plastic, glass, aluminum, food and general waste and actually more than 60 percent of this waste could be recycled and used once again (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_Ufbm5ZkBY). Every process of recycling related to any of these different types is done in a different kind of way and every type could produce a percentage of energy different than the other, but they all end up with some benefits that call out for the whole recycling process from the beginning. Did you know that aluminum could be recycled and used once again in just 6 weeks? Aluminum is one of the materials used by people in the form of cans which lots of food comes in and that is why recycling would be important in such a case instead of throwing away all these cans without making any use of them. The interesting fact regarding aluminum recycling is that one recycled can could actually save energy to power a television for three hours! It is not just aluminum, but glass is also another material that is 100 percent recyclable and could be used again and again. In all the cases, glass is usually separated from the rest of the rubbish to keep the people collecting it safe from any injuries in case any glass bottle got broken, but the interesting thing is that glass is also one of the different materials that could be recycled as well. Paper is also from the materials that could be recycled and sent back to the shops to be sold once again, there are different types and grades for paper, they are not all treated in the same way. Paper is one of the most important materials to be recycled because of the benefits it carries, it actually produces 73 percent less air pollution when it is recycled and not just made from new raw materials (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-N5jb-fWTs). Plastic is the fourth type of material that could be also recycled like the others. The interesting thing about plastic is the amount that families tend to throw away and which is believed to reach about 40 kg per year by just one family, which is enough to be recycled and made use of. Plastic can take up to 500 years to decompose, and this is enough to explain the importance of recycling when it comes to plastic. The countries that call out for recycling tend to make it easier to sort the materials by asking the public to separate their trash and waste when they are throwing it away; put the paper alone, the plastic alone, the glass alone, food alone and every other thing that they could not identify alone. This would make it easier for the recycling company to collect the trash bin and directly separate it before delivering it to the recycling plant and start the process of recycling. You are now asking why would recycling be considered that much important. There are lots of different materials that could be recycled and that is enough to explain the importance of such process. Recycling is important because it saves energy and resources, it reduces pollution and it saves trees, water, oil and electricity. Recycling is also important because it opens new work places for people and thus it reduces the rate of unemployment in the companies that follow this mindset (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UuUeoyYmxI). There are lots of things to educate the kids with from an early age to understand how the life they are living in works and moves. Recycling is one of the important things to teach your kids and let them know more about, but it is also important to educate them financially (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQgOJoZduRc), it is important to educate them about the Earth's phenomena that might take place, like tornadoes for example (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWA9dpLtNrU) and it is also important to educate them when it comes to maths, English, crafts and cooking. There are different educational videos on our channel that would help all the parents homeschooling their kids and are searching for the interesting and exciting resources which they could depend on and which the kids will also enjoy learning from.

3D Shape Nets for Kids - 3D Shapes for kids - Geometric Nets
 
04:05
3D Shape Nets for Kids - A video to help children understand and visualize 3D shape nets. A wide range of 3D shapes and how they unfold. What is a 3D shape net? A net is composed of all the flat faces of a 3D figure. Every single 3D shape will differ than the other and the number of faces will differ from one shape to the other; a cube will be different than a cone or a circle and so on. According to this educational video which we have brought to the parents and their kids, there are some facts which they should know about the different 3D shapes that are found out there. There is the cube which consists of 6 flat faces, the cuboid which also consists of 6 flat faces, there is the cylinder which is made up of 3 flat faces only, a cone which is made up of just two flat faces, the triangular prism which is made up of 5 flat faces, the tetrahedron that is made up of 4 flat faces, the square based pyramid which is made up of 5 flat faces, and eventually there is also the hexagonal prism and this one is made up of 8 flat faces! It is now easier for the kids to understand what a 3D shape net is and should be able to identify it when they see it or are even asked. Geometric shapes in general are from the several interesting things to teach the kids, because they will be seeing different shapes and at the same time they will be identifying these shapes because they could even tell their shape nets (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-uRABe5sFE). There are different videos found on our channel that are related to teaching kids and toddlers the different shapes and asking them to identify what they are seeing in front of them. The ways kids could learn are different and they could happen through videos, through real shapes that kids see on a daily basis (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VU1x8oIcvT0) and there are the toys of those shapes which the kids might own. In addition to identifying the name of the shape and telling what is the 3D shape nets, the kids should also be well aware of other things related to the 3D shapes, such as the properties of them (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ea_xGBiw1o), the shapes in the real life (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9nMr4P843o) and it would be also one important thing if the kids knew more about the 2D shapes as well (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8elrAoIYlE). To get the whole thing more interesting for the kids, parents could choose some methods to mix the lessons and teach them different things all at once. One of the examples that we are referring to is the shapes and the colors and teaching the kids both things (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4BD3Rv17lo). Learning the shapes and guessing them is interesting for the kids and they always feel proud about themselves when their guess is correct (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmfCdqxTjEw), so it will be always a good choice to play such a game with your kids and let them get introduced to the different shapes that are found out there. Now you know what 3D shape nets are, let us ask you a couple of questions to see how much you managed to get some information from this video: How many flat faces does the cube shape has? How many flat faces does the cylinder shape has? How many flat faces does the cuboid has? If you know the answers for these questions then you are close enough to know the other pieces of information that are found out there! Here you go! If you have any other things related to learning more about the shapes then let us know them! And if you have any questions related to the video or related to knowing more about the shapes in general, send them all over to us and give us the chance to answer them and help you.

10 Viking Longships Facts - Viking Facts for Kids - Viking Information KS2 - Vikings for Kids
 
03:14
Are you searching for an interesting story that could state some interesting and important facts about the viking longships for your kids? Animation would be the answer and the storytelling is also a huge part of the story which is the way LearningMole has done it through this video. The viking ships were given two different names, they were either the "longships" or the "dragonships", and the vikings also had slower passenger and cargo ships which were known as "Knorrs". The vikings also were good at making the small ships which they used in fishing or for the short trips they used to go on. There are 10 facts which are brought through this video for the kids to know more about the viking longships and their uses. These facts state that: 1- Viking's longships were the largest and the fastest and they were used for raiding and combat. 2- These longships were between 25 and 30 meters and they carried up to 60 men. 3- Some of the other ships used by the vikings were called "knorrs" or "karves" which were slower passenger and cargo ships. 4- Longships were made from trees of timber which are usually oak and they had their techniques as well. 5- The men slept in fur-lined sleeping bags when the rolling sailors sat on chests with their belongings in. 6- The sailor men used to put helmsmen to move the ship faster and reach their destination quicker. 7- The vikings loved to decorate their ships with fine wooden carvings that were fearsome like a snake or a dragon to scare enemies off. 8- The vikings used to depend on stars in finding their ways in order to move in the right direction. 9- Vikings also used to give their ships some names like "Long Serpent", "Wind Crow" or "Snake of the Sea". 10- The speed of the viking ship varied but the maximum speed under favorable conditions was around 15 knots or 28 kmph. There are lots of facts which kids are supposed to know at their early age and it is important to find the right educational resources to deliver this kind of information for them. LearningMole is trying to bring and use the motivational techniques and the different methods which the kids would find interesting to learn from and one of them is bringing these facts through animation videos with the voice of a kid. We have brought lots of information and facts through our channel, in maths, science, crafts, cooking and even general information about the things which the kids are living around such as the facts about snacks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwhoc_YeaU8), the facts we brought about dinosaurs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBaiG_7f7GQ), the facts about the planets in our solar system which you could also check through this link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTQKy19e2OQ), some hurricane information for the kids to know about (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ye0wWBOKIZY), recycling facts to educate them about the whole process (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UuUeoyYmxI), facts about tornadoes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWA9dpLtNrU), about vikings in general and not just the ships (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gA6b-H7VM3U) and lots of other facts that might be related to science, math and its tricks, the crafts that the kids could do and the snacks which they could prepare and cook - easy ones don't worry :-)! To answer all the "how to" questions which the parents trying to homeschool their kids ask and give them the educational resources they will need as some kind of support in their journey, we brought this channel to life so that these parents could come back to it and check the different videos which they could show to their kids and those which they could imitate with their kids as well. There are different fields covered here in this channel that could serve those who want to find answers in math, science, crafts or cooking and we would always love to answer any other questions you want to ask about - just send us and we are here to offer our help :-) It is important to choose the right place from where you will manage to get the facts and information that you will provide your kids with and we are bringing here some good resources for you!

Multiplication for Kids - Arrays - Times Tables - Arithmetic - Math Help - Homeschooling
 
03:55
There are different methods to use for teaching kids how to multiply and every single one of them might be more interesting than the other, the choice will always go to the kid according to which one suits him/her the most. Arrays is one of the methods for multiplication which this video is bringing for parents homeschooling their kids. The things that could be used while teaching the kids maths could be all about the tools found at home and things that could be found with a really perfect price, so don't worry about the things you will need to use for your kids. Arrays is one of the multiplication lessons which Michelle used coasters and stickers for and which she believed that kids will easily love for these things they will play with. The whole idea behind arrays is helping the kids to multiply in front of their own eyes in addition to keeping that multiplication thing in their minds because this will help in making the process easier for them at the end, to see what they are going to deal with and solve. This will also depend on the age of the kid because if he is still in the beginning of learning math then doing a mathematical equation in mind would be hard and thus having something in front of them to depend on will be always needed. The arrays method is applied through using the shape which the kids will choose - you could even do it from paper all by your own - they will place the first number in their multiplication equation in columns under one another and then beside these columns will place the other number in the equation in rows. At the end, the kids could actually count the shapes they will end up having in order to get the final answer for the equation they are dealing with. The same math game could be played but with using stickers instead which the kids could stick on a piece of paper, also in the same way, columns and rows and then eventually counting the total number of the stickers they have. Kids always love to stick things and they love to choose the colors, place them in order and do things related to this same way of thinking, so they will most probably love to learn how to multiply through using this math game or method. Are you still searching for other multiplication lessons and ways which you could teach your kids? On our channel, there are other ideas and math games for kids which you could try and depend on; there is the method of teaching kids multiplication through using building blocks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPW1bmLTFdA), there is the method of teaching them multiplication through playing and making shapes and numbers with play doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw91epryD28), it could also happen with some other tools like the small cartoon characters which the kids might already have within their toys (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pWka6dk3b4) and of course one should never forget about the basic method which is the multiplication times tables that almost all the kids depend on (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r6IN-h9d-I). Always choose what will best suit your child, sometimes you have to try all the methods while homeschooling them and let them choose the one they consider the most interesting and easiest for them; that of course might mostly be with those methods used with paper because playing math games might not be something for them to choose when it comes to school because these games will not be with them everywhere. Math in general is easier to teach for the kids than English for example, because you could use your fingers, tools around you, you could use a pen and a paper, etc. and thus you make it all appear much easier for the kids to learn and much easier for them to apply these mathematical techniques on their everyday life. Try this arrays method with your kids to teach them how to multiply and tell us about the feedback. If you have any questions regarding multiplication or the arrays method we have used, don't ever hesitate to send us over, we will be very happy to help :-) Do you have any ideas or methods which you have used with your kids to teach them multiplication?

The Whole Idea behind Creating LearningMole - About Us - About Me (Michelle) - About LearningMole
 
01:57
What is LearningMole? Who are the team behind it? That's the first thing you would be asking yourself when you come across any of the videos we are airing for you and that one is dedicated for all those who want to find the right answer, it will tell you who is behind this channel. The one who is behind LearningMole is Michelle Connolly who have 15 years of experience in teaching the primary sector across the UK and internationally, making her a qualified teacher who you could depend on when it comes to educating your kids at home through watching these different videos. "When I was teaching, I was constantly creating everything, making resources for children to make sure they were constantly stimulated and challenged, however after many discussions with parents and through parents teaching consultations, I quickly became very clear that there wasn't a lot of support for parents; how do I teach my child addition? How is addition taught today in schools? were questions I was constantly being asked" That is the thing Michelle said when asked about the reason behind starting LearningMole and the one reason behind offering this kind of information for parents and kids through her videos. Michelle is a parent herself with three children, a baby and two kids, she used those two kids through her videos to show how she herself tends to educate and teach her kids at home. Education today could be a real minefield and that is with all the new education techniques which are appearing every single day and which the kids are constantly introduced to, and from this point, Michelle started LearningMole. LearningMole is there to offer those who are following the homeschooling concept with new techniques and concepts which they could use with their kids, it offers them videos in several fields that will help them with science, math, crafts and even cooking. This is the right place for the parents who need extra support to start homeschooling for their kids but don't know from where they are supposed to start. Those who help Michelle through her videos are her two superstars - kids - Aaron and James who help her with bringing content, new ideas and also help her with creativity. Through these different videos, Michelle used several ways to educate the kids: she either work with her own children to demonstrate new ideas and concepts, she uses animation videos which are considered the perfect learning techniques for all the family members and the face to face technique which is more aimed for teachers and parents so that they could understand the concepts which their children are learning at school and thus know how to support them at home. There are several fields which Michelle Connolly helps with through LearningMole and in every single one of them she brings different ways and techniques to make it all different for those waiting for the videos. These fields are science, math, crafts and cooking and you could check every one of them to settle on the right concepts to use with your kids. If you want to check some videos that are related to science then you could teach your kids about the planets, know the biggest one and the smallest one through these different links here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h7DLa7o2Lc), (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7E7zoFBwLU0), (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTQKy19e2OQ). If you are more into the math part and want to receive the right techniques which would be successful with your kids, there are lots of videos to choose from according to what exactly you want them to learn and which concept you want to use with them, one example would be the multiplication times table (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r6IN-h9d-I) and even tell them about the facts related to it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZbNl0RutB0). Coming to the crafts part, there are lots of things to inform your kids about through using the concepts Michelle is sharing through LearningMole and which you could check them through this link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHDfxx0wQpw&list=PLEp6HdXIBkhrD0piTaxoOwBBxoid6fALy) and add cooking to all these videos as well.

Alphabet - Help Your Child Learn the ABC's
 
02:13
The English alphabet is the first step taken when it comes to learning to read and to write, because how could the kid manage to write down the letters or even learn them without knowing what are the letters in the first place and what is the right order for them? There are different ways that could be followed in order to teach the kids the English alphabet. The basic method or the one that is mostly followed is just telling the kids about the letters in the right order, stressing on every single one of them, and letting the kids write every single letter they learn until they make sure everything is received in the right way (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1q2yKaY8gr4). But in addition to that basic method which we all know about, there are also other ones that could be depended on, such as singing the ABC's with the different nursery songs that are found in the kids world in order to teach them to the kids in an easier way (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smcw82TTh_M). There is also the educational method that depends on teaching the kids the ABC's through attaching every single letter to a specific word which the kids could learn to spell the letter through and thus could easily pronounce it later on, which is what phonics is all about (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIylRqK7NsI). At the end, most of these methods which we are referring to are close to one another or move in the same sequence, and that's why it is not much about getting creative when it comes to the method, but it is about making sure that the way you are following is working well with the kids and they are actually memorizing these letters and keeping them in their heads. In this video, every single letter in the English alphabet is standing for one word in the English language to make it easier for the kids to know how the letter should be pronounced and what are the words that define it. A stands for Apple B stands for Banana C stands for Carrot D stands for Donut E stands for Egg F stands for Fries G stand for Grapes H stands for Hamburger I stands for Ice-cream J stands for Jelly K stands for Kiwi L stands for Lemon M stands for Milkshake N stands for Nuts O stands for Orange P stands for Pineapple Q stands for Quiche R stands for Raspberry S stands for Strawberry T stands for Tomato U stands for Umbrella fruit V stands for Vanilla W stands for Watermelon X stands for X-mas cookies Y stands for Yoghurt Z stands for Zucchini Whenever it comes to choosing the words that are going to refer to every single letter in the English alphabet, make sure that you are choosing those which the kids will easily remember, and this means that one should choose the words that the kids love in the real world, such as using "sweets for the letter S" or using "ice-cream for the letter I" and so on. This will make the whole process of learning much easier for the kids to learn the alphabet in an easy way and stick the letters to their minds (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UeKeWYAN7M). The first step in learning the English alphabet starts with learning the letters in their correct order, the second part is related to how these words should be pronounced and this is what phonics is all about and which is also different from spelling every single letter on its own (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkxlkoGAlKs), and the last part of this educational process is learning to write these letters down before coming to the point of reading words (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVL9oskIn10). Helping your child to learn the ABC means that you are trying to deliver this piece of information through some interesting ways other than just doing the thing through the basic and ordinary way that is about showing them the letters on paper or even on the white board. There are lots of words, so you could show this video to your kids and then let them bring other words for every single letter to see how good they are at the whole thing. Enjoy watching this video along with your kids and let us hear your feedback about whether the kids managed to learn the ABC's from this video or else not! Let us hear back from you!

Mental Math for Kids - Addition on Blank Number Line
 
05:02
What is a number line? Number lines are used for counting, whether forward or backwards, to teach the child addition and subtraction while jumping on them. Number line to 100 is used with the big chunks and allow kids to do big calculations. One of the important and initial tips that parents receive when they teach their kids to use the strategy of number line is to do so with the small numbers because when it comes to the big numbers, it all turns out to be more difficult. In this video, teaching kids to use number lines with big chunks will be the main focus. Using number lines with the big chunks does not happen in the same way of using it with the small numbers, but it will need to go through the step of partitioning the smaller number which will be removed from the bigger one. In addition, reordering is needed to make it all easier for the child; place the bigger number first (in head) and count on the smaller one (on paper or in head) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdux-Xn35qE). First of all, teach the child to choose the bigger number of the equation and place it first then put it on the number line to start counting from it. The second step is to partition the smaller number to tens and units and remove it from the bigger number; for example, if the equation is 42-12, the kid will need to place number 42 on the number line then partition 12 to 10 and 2 to make it easier for jumping on the number line and bringing out the final answer. These jumps could happen with one big chunk or small regular jumps, it depends on the child and what is easier for him/her (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Cf08KP92zo). There are different mental math strategies for addition and subtraction and since they are considered mental then kids should understand that at first they could record their steps and calculations by using the number line and jumping on it to eventually count those jumps, but they should at some point start doing these calculations mentally in their heads without having to do it all on paper (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wn2YBpCIzis). Addition is the first lesson taught to the kids when it comes to math since it is the easiest and the most common after learning to count (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oj5fjISL744). In addition to the mental math strategies which we are referring to, there are also those different mathematical games which are also considered interesting for the child, such as using Lego (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLfSeSHWE78), using play doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEQQl0u2Muk), using the kids little monster characters and lots of other games that could be all played with the different tools that are found in every house without the need to spend a lot of money to buy them. Practicing is the most important step to be taken in order for the child to move from the written phase to the mental one and also for them to learn the lesson in general, so parents should keep practicing along with their kids and teach them how this whole method works for them to learn addition. Never worry about the time it takes your child to learn a thing because kids are not the same, some might learn fast while others could take time, some might enjoy specific methods while others could find them uninteresting, so always choose the method according to the child and their likes and dislikes and never rush into a lesson because they will end up finding it difficult to learn. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are different mathematical operations that could be taught in different methods and strategies according to the operation, the numbers and the way preferred by the child. Choosing the interesting strategies and techniques is always the best thing to do because kids love challenges and that's what brings them to get excited about the whole lesson and ask for its repetition. We have lots of other educational videos that parents homeschooling their kids could depend on to get different and new lesson ideas, you could check some of them on our channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3q7imQuRBQ&list=PLEp6HdXIBkhoWEupKp-AXWSiDOKtVAQUf) Visit www.learningmole.com for more educational lessons and videos in Maths, English, Crafts and Cooking.

Learn the Shapes for Kids - Shapes in Real Life
 
03:42
Learn the Shapes for Kids - Shapes in Real Life. A great video encouraging your child to learn the shapes and to spot shapes around them in real life. Are your kids aware of the different shapes found out there around them? Could they point out some of them? This is to help them know more about the shapes and their names and also get the chance to spot on the things scattered all around them and know which shape do they represent. There is the square, the oval, the circle, the hexagon, the pentagon, the rectangle; every single one of these comes with its sides and corners which will be different from the other one, and that is exactly the reason why kids should know the names and point out the differences between them (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-uRABe5sFE). Teaching the kids more about the shapes could happen through several ways, it could happen through playing with these shapes and letting the kids tell you which is which, or else teach the kids to point out these different shapes from the items that are placed around them; e.g. ask your kid to point out a square from around you both. The process of learning more about the shapes is easy - actually knowing more about the shapes is all easy - even when it comes to kids, the thing is that they should get to know them from the early beginning before they get deeper into these shapes without being able to tell their names or differentiate between them easily. The best game for teaching the kids more about the shapes is through letting them spot these shapes around them, even if they are found within real big items - such as the pentagon shape that is found in the football. There are lots of examples for things with smaller shapes in them that could make the whole thing much more challenging for the kids to spot them out and mention their names. Learning more about the shapes, their properties, their names, etc. could actually happen along with teaching the kids other lessons, such as letting them know more about the colors (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4BD3Rv17lo), knowing the difference between the 2D and 3D shapes and dealing with their properties as well (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocvvov72_kc), and at the same time there are other lessons as well which one could combine along with teaching the kids about the shapes, such as teaching them to count for example, which will be through counting the sides and corners for example. We have gone through a long journey related to the kids and teaching them more about the shapes around them, you will find different lessons on our channel which will be of great help to you and which will guide you to find teaching your kids an interesting thing. You could check the video about the 3D shape nets (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwDjm6Ra1W4) and you could also check the video which will help you to play a little bit with your kids through asking them to guess the shapes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmfCdqxTjEw). Parents homeschooling their children could check different videos and let their kids watch them in order to learn more about shapes, they could check the one about circles (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPNZ0Jblg_A), they could check the one about rectangles (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yta7ivF89bY), and they could also check the video about the 2D shape properties in order to know the difference between it and the 3D one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8elrAoIYlE). Always search for the interesting videos, games, lessons and every other thing that could be used while teaching the kids something that is new for them, because that is how they will find the whole idea of being informed with a thing and educated more interesting and that is how they are going to actually get the whole thing and find it easy to recall it in the future. We hope that you liked this video along with your kid and that it turned out to be informative for them; we hope they actually could spot the different shapes around them now!

Phonics Sounds - Phonetic Sounds of the English Alphabet
 
03:59
An educational video to help your child learn the phonetic sounds of the English Alphabet. The video also focuses on letter formation and gives tips on how to write the letters of the English Alphabet. This video focuses on the letter 'a'. Great fun ways on challenging your child to being writing their letters using a range of art activities and creative thinking. What is phonics? Phonics are those sounds created by the different letters in the English alphabet and which are different spelled than when they are alone and taught to the kids as separate letters. There are just some tricky words that do not follow a phonetic pattern and which are taught to the kids separately (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqzSSBu02TQ). Writing the letters is one of the different steps in learning the English alphabet, it all starts with knowing the letters, spelling them correctly, and writing those letters down. In this video, the lesson is about letter 'a'; teaching the child to know what the written letter is, how does it sound, and how it should be written. Before asking the child to trace the written letters on the piece of paper with the prepared paint, make sure they first tell you what is the letter written in front of them, how they are supposed to spell it correctly, and let them use the "magic finger" in order to write the letter in the air first to know how they are supposed to trace it down on a piece of paper. The magic finger is that finger they trace down the letter with in the air and it is actually important because it makes the whole thing of teaching them to write down the letters much easier. Always choose the creative methods and the tools which the kids usually love to play with because that's how they will enjoy the lesson and will actually learn it correctly. Paint is one of the things that kids love to play with since it gives them the chance to show their artistic side, so always accept the suggestions which the kids are offering you because sometimes they make the whole thing look nice and which you could then hang on the wall and refer to later. There are different lessons related to phonics and teaching the kids the English alphabet letters and this is actually the most important thing because kids love to learn through playing some games in order not to feel like they are in a hard lesson at school which they are failing to keep up with. From the different phonics lessons related to writing specific letters, there is the lesson related letter 'E' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3Vja3_Rvjs), letter 'N' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jg0bhC0gqRU), letter 'S' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzwoPNQk1XY), letter 'T' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZT8ImgjSA-g) and the letter 'L' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVL9oskIn10). The techniques followed in teaching the kids to write down the alphabet letters are important because it makes the whole thing much easier, instead of starting to write down the letter in a different way every single time and then end up writing the letter wrongly. So don't ever underestimate the magic finger and the technique of writing the letter because it are really needed. Learning English goes through different steps and one of them is related to phonics and how the letters should sound or how they are supposed to be pronounced correctly. This is then followed by the part of writing the letters down in the correct way and managing to remember them without even having something to trace or something to imitate. One thing parents should always keep in mind, if the kids made a mistake while they are answering a question, it is still considered a good thing because parents will right them and ask them some questions along the way then wait for the answers they are going to give which might not be even expected.

Facts about the Solar System - Space Facts for Kids - Solar System Information
 
13:27
Do you want your kids to know some facts about the solar system? This video is there to help them know more solar system information and understand how it all goes up there: how many planets are there, what is their order and which is the closest to the sun (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4BP1qYHs_k). Usually learning about space and the solar system starts with stating the eight planets and knowing about their order according to which is the closest and which is the farthest from the sun. The solar system is made up of all the planets that orbit the sun, but the solar system also has moons, comets, asteroids, minor planets, dust and gas; everything in the solar system actually orbits or revolves around the sun. The sun contains around 98% of all the material in the solar system. People, especially kids, know that there are nine different planets in the solar system, although they are only eight because in 2006, scientists considered Pluto a dwarf planet and thus they are now considered eight only. These planets with their order according to which is the closest to the sun are: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. There is one good method we have came up with to give the kids the chance to remember the right order of the planets, which is this sentence "My Very Easy Method Just Speeds Up Naming" and this is helpful because the initials of the words will tell the kids which planet is the closest to the sun and which is the farthest away. Scientists actually discovered other objects orbiting the sun which include comets, asteroids and dwarf planets, like Pluto and Eris, and Pluto was considered the ninth planet in the solar system before being renamed to a dwarf planet. There are some facts about the solar system that would surprise the kids, one of them is the fact that the sun is not a planet but it is actually a star. The sun is like the stars that we know about and spot in the night sky, but it is actually the only star coming up in the day time to light it all up as we see it. The sun is so big, but did you know that you could fit more than one million Earths inside of it? Starting with the closest planet to the sun, Mercury, there are some facts which we should know about. First of all, Mercury is the smallest planet and it is actually a small rocky planet, not like the moon. Mercury is covered with craters and scientists think that there might be volcanic activity on the planet. The interesting thing to know is that Mercury has no moons (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7E7zoFBwLU0). The second close planet to the sun is Venus. Venus is actually the sixth largest of all the planets, it is a small, rocky planet blanketed in a thick layer of yellowish clouds, these clouds are formed from a poison called sulfuric acid. The surface of Venus is very hot, about 400 degrees! and it also has no moons! Earth is the third planet away from the sun and it is the fifth largest one. Earth is a small rocky planet which supports a lot of life and it is actually a unique planet when compared to all the others. 71% of the Earth's water is covered with water and it is orbited by one moon. Mars is the next planet on the list and this planet is a small rocky planet which is cold and lifeless. Mars is the fourth planet from the sun and it has no water and it has two tiny moons which orbit very close to the surface, their names are Phobos and Deimos. Jupiter is a giant gas planet that is made up of about 90% hydrogen and 10% helium. Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun but it is actually the largest planet. The vivid colors seen in Jupiter's clouds are the result of chemical reactions. Jupiter has 16 known moons and one of its features is the great red spot (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h7DLa7o2Lc). Coming up to the sixth planet rotating around the sun, Saturn will be mentioned. Saturn is a giant gas planet that is made of about 75% hydrogen and 25% helium. Saturn is mostly known to be famous for the thousands of beautiful rings. Saturn has more moons than any other planet, it actually has 18 known moons. Uranus is the seventh planet away from the sun, it is a giant gas planet that is mostly made of rock and ice. Uranus is blue in color which is the result of a gas called methane. This planet has 15 known moons! Reaching the last and the final planet which is Neptune, we should say that it is a giant gas planet that is made up of ices and rock. Neptune's winds are the fastest in the solar system, reaching 2,000 km/hour. Neptune has 8 known moons, seven small ones and a large moon called Triton. These are the facts about the solar system to start with when coming to teaching your kids, you could also check the video about the coldest planet in the solar system (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2d1ChPO8JM) and the hottest one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMDndNpqd8I) to let your kids know more about it all.

Addition Math Games - Four in a Row/Connect 4 - Problem Solving
 
08:32
How to add? That's the question to ask the kids when they learn math and counting and know how they are supposed to solve the mathematical problems which they come to face. Connect Four is the game we used in this video to make addition appear much easier for the kids. There are several games that kids could learn to add through and they could be even created on a piece of paper without the need to bring real games or objects to the table. Addition is the first mathematical operation that the kids get to learn and then it is followed by subtraction before the more complicated lessons, which are multiplication and division, are included in the process. In this educational video, Connect 4 is the game we depended on to bring this method or lesson idea to the parents and kids. We all know that connect four is all about the idea of bringing four same colors in a row in order to win, and even though this will be changed a little bit in order for the math lesson to be implemented, it will be played in the same way. In order to teach kids addition through playing Connect 4, the parent will draw those small circles on a piece of paper and place different numbers in every single one of them. The game will depend on the two dices which the kid and the parent will play with - we even brought one of the dices with dots and not numbers to help with the number recognition. On turn, each one will throw the two dices, add the two numbers they receive, and then color the circle on the paper with this number. The first one to get four circles in the same row will end up being the winner. While playing with your child, ask them some questions along the process to make sure that they are paying attention to what they are doing and not just counting and adding the number. Ask them how did they reach the answer, what was the method they used, when they calculate the two numbers on the dices, ask them what else could bring that same number and see what the answers they are going to give will be. All these questions will manage to examine the kids' ability to solve different mathematical problems and see where their thinking skills could actually take them. This is just one of the different math games that are found out there and which are related to teaching the kids to add, but there are different other ones that might even combine other operations in the process, such as teaching the kids how to subtract or else let them handle the equations that bring addition and subtraction both at the same time (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAlpqGKQOG0). As much as there are different games which the kids could play while learning math, like Lego and play-doh for example (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roMEZv1OObc), we still believe that the other games that could depend on a piece of paper and pen are much better and will even help the kid since the numbers will be placed in front of him/her and he/she could do several trials if needed with crossing the wrong answers out and leaving the right ones. Problem solving is an important lesson for the kids to learn, it could be handled through several ways all the time, and that is considered the best thing about it all. Problem solving in math is about handling the different numbers, adding and subtracting, multiplying and dividing, but eventually coming to the right answer that was needed from the beginning (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Zc96Kh8-GY). Whenever the kid is placed in a challenge that is related to math and learning it, they feel proud and happy when they get the final answer and solve the problem correctly, and that is the reason why we believe playing games with kids and giving them the chance to solve problems will be always a good thing for them and for their mind to think and solve the questions and the problems (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVM8iQMaZN8). What do you think of the Connect 4 method used in teaching the kids addition? Did it work out well with your kids? Did they enjoy it all at the end? Enjoy watching this addition math game video with your child and teach them how it should all work out at the end.

Dinosaurs for Kids - Dinosaur Facts for Kids - Dinosaur Videos for Kids
 
08:44
A great dinosaur video for kids. Find out about the different dinosaurs and their names. Perfect for children working on a dinosaur project or who have dinosaur questions. Kids always love dinosaurs and love knowing more information about them - even though they are extinct creatures which are not there anymore - and boys always have those small toys of dinosaurs which they keep playing with. But the question is what are dinosaurs and what were the most extraordinary features they had? What are dinosaurs? Dinosaurs were reptiles that walked the earth for 165 million years in an era called "Mesozoic". Dinosaurs actually died long time before the first human beings appeared, about 63 million years. For kids to understand the whole thing about dinosaurs, they should also know what a fossil is. Fossils are actually the remains of dead animals or plants, and these fossils actually showed us what dinosaurs looked like and how they actually may have lived and what the earth was like when they were alive. When a dinosaur died, the hard parts of its body, like the teeth and the bones, were often buried in the mud. What was the biggest dinosaur? The biggest dinosaur that was ever found out there was called the Amphicoelias, which was about 50 metres and this was almost 100 tons, the same as 12 elephants. This dinosaur is actually big enough for any kid to even think about! In addition to knowing more about the biggest dinosaur there is, knowing about the one with the longest tail is also a must. The dinosaur with the longest neck was known as Mamenchisaurus which has a neck 13 metres long with 19 neck bones! This long neck actually could have helped this dinosaur to reach a four storey- building. If you were living back at the time of dinosaurs, you might have experienced one looking from your balcony. So we now know that Amphicoelias was the biggest dinosaur and thus we should also know what was the smallest dinosaur. The smallest dinosaur was called Anchiornis which was between 35 and 40 centimetres long only, and this is smaller than a chicken. In addition to the biggest and the smallest dinosaurs out there, kids could also get introduced to the fastest dinosaur that used to live back then. The fastest dinosaur was called Gallimimus and there was also Ornithomimus, these two dinosaurs could run on 69 kilometers per hour, and this is as fast as an ostrich. Which dinosaur was considered the best hunter? The dinosaur that was considered the best hunter back at the time was named Tyrannosaurus Rex. Tyrannosaurus Rex had the most powerful bite , its jaws could be up to 1.2 meters long, which could tell much about how good a hunter it might have been. What was the biggest meat-eater dinosaur? There was a dinosaur called the Spinosaurus that could be up to 18 meters long and weigh as much as 20 tons! The Spinosaurus shape was like a modern crocodile and it used to live in water. Which dinosaur had the biggest head? There are actually lots of things and information to be known about dinosaurs and one of them is getting introduced to the one with the biggest head. The dinosaur with the largest head was called Pentaceratops, its skull was up to three meters long but it actually had a very small brain. What is a carnivore? A carnivore was a meat-eater dinosaur like the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Carnivores had strong sharp teeth and legs, good eye sight and a powerful sense of smell that helped them to hunt. What is a herbivore? Most dinosaurs were plant eaters called herbivores. Some of these dinosaurs actually had strong teeth for stripping leaves and twigs from trees which they often swallowed whole. Herbivores had very big tummies and they walked on all fours because they needed this support. Some of the plants that the dinosaurs used to eat are still found today. What is a pterosaur? A pterosaur was a flying animal like a dinosaur. A pterosaur had furry bodies and long, pointed jaws for catching their preys, they may have eaten insects, fish and they even ate small dinosaurs. The interesting thing about pterosaurs is that they had wings and could fly but when they land they walk on all their fours, using the fingers at the end of their wings to hit the ground. Dinosaurs used to lay eggs just like reptiles and birds do today, but instead of staying beside these eggs and take care of their babies, they actually used to leave their eggs behind. There were different shapes and sizes for these eggs, such as the sauropod egg which was round as a football and there was the oviraptor egg which was shaped like a potato. There are lots of information that kids could still learn about other creatures, like butterflies (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFcyxTu9zE0), snakes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwhoc_YeaU8) and lots of other types as well. The question is, where did the dinosaurs go? Nobody really knows where and why they disappeared, but they were once there and kids love to know more about them all the time.

Learning Numbers for Kids - Counting Numbers
 
06:49
How to teach the kids the English numbers? We have a good bright idea right here that depends on Lego, play doh, and monsters. Identify the number written, bring the same amount from the monsters, the play doh balls and the Lego blocks, and eventually write down the letter through tracing it with the play doh snake. Kids learn the English numbers step by step, it starts with counting to 10 then it goes up until it reaches 20 and so on. In every single step of these, kids should be able to identify the different numbers, know how to bring the same amount of number from the objects, and know how to write it down, and these are the different steps that the kids will learn from this video. Start with choosing a specific number to write down on the small board, ask the child to tell you the name of that number to see whether they could identify it or not, let them bring that same number and build a small tower out of the Lego blocks, ask them to take that number from the play doh balls created, and eventually move on to the part of asking them to write the letter through tracing it with the play doh snake that you have both created together. Homeschooling is all about creativity, parents should choose the methods that would light up in the minds of the kids and thus encourage them to learn and keep them interested. In this educational video, the idea is in the games used with the child, which include the Lego blocks, the play doh, and the monsters which are all found in every single home out there. Counting numbers is the first step that kids come to learn after they are introduced to the numbers in general, and then they move forward to the part of learning the different mathematical operations that include addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This means that the most important step or part is getting introduced to the numbers and learning to count in the correct order. Always try to make it easier for the child if he/she is dealing with any struggles or problems because otherwise they might face some obstacles in the middle of the way. Let them double check their work and count the items they have brought out - such as the Lego and the monsters - and draw the number down on the board for them in order to let them trace it with the play doh snake you have both created. Tracing the number will make it easier for the child to learn how to write the number on their own later on and it is even important to educate the kids to trace the numbers in the air with their magic fingers before they trace it with the play doh snake. This will give them the chance to know how they are supposed to write down the number in order not to bring different shapes for the numbers due to writing them differently every single time. We have other lesson ideas on our channel that kids could learn counting numbers from, such as using Lego and play doh, as well as counting with using the finger (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx4R1YkxPso), using the fingers and the toes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jkrRRXgFq8), counting the different objects placed in front of the child (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYmMjMBjMcI) and lots of similar creative ideas that make the whole process much easier and more interesting for the child. Always make the whole lesson appear like a challenge for the child in order to keep them excited, such as playing in turn and seeing who is going to be the winner at the end, because that's how the child will be looking forward to it all and at the same time they will ask for the repetition of the game if they lost, because they love to be the winners all the time and thus will never accept something less. Play games, let them try, help them if needed, give them some challenges, and do every other thing that would help them to learn numbers. Don't ever worry about your child not learning a specific thing, because with practicing and making mistakes, they will end up learning and getting educated. Let the parents learn a new lesson idea and let the kids learn to identify numbers, count, and learn how to write these numbers downs correctly.

Amazing Viking Facts for Kids - Vikings for Kids - Vikings History - Viking Facts for Kids - KS2
 
04:09
Facts about the vikings that kids should know about but in order not to make the information seem boring, the story being told to them should be exciting and this happens through the way it is presented to them. There are some facts related to the life of the vikings which would sound interesting when the kids know about them but in order to succeed at such a thing, you as a parent should tell them the story in a different kind of way or else depend on any of the educational resources and videos that would let them listen to the story and be waiting for the rest of it. In this video, Aaron is being the storyteller who is telling the facts of the vikings regarding their origins, what they used to wear, the swords they used, etc. One important thing to pay attention to when you are choosing the voice of the kid who will do the voice over for you which is to make him sound interesting while telling the story. The vikings originally came from Sweden, Denmark and Norway and then they sailed with their ships to reach other parts of the world. They sailed through the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, they reached the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland and they even reached North America. The vikings had their specific clothes, the ships which they designed themselves and which differ in the design and the size (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Q9Ikn_enNk). The vikings wear specific clothes especially when they are preparing for a battle, it is about the cloak, the knife belt, the leather shoes and the helmet. You will always realize that the vikings treated their swords as part of their families, they always walked around with their axes, the knives and their shields. When it comes to the long viking ship, there are some facts which the kids are supposed to be informed with. The long viking ships are huge, they measure 30 metres, they can travel 18 miles per hour, they can carry on up to 60 men and they can even sail in shallow waters so that they could travel up rivers. The vikings longships are built from the finest oak and they always have this dragon head that is situated at the front of the ship which is believed to scare any enemies away. Since the vikings come from the Scandinavian part of the world, they used to have cooler temperatures and thus traveled to England to have a better land of farm. Sharing some facts with the kids and informing them with some new information should come in the form of a story to make it easier for them to absorb it all. On our LearningMole channel, we have other educational videos and resources which you could let your kids watch and receive new information. What is the biggest planet in our solar system? You could know more about that from this link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h7DLa7o2Lc). What is the smallest planet in the solar system? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7E7zoFBwLU0). Heart information for the kids (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SA7XEp_97FQ), bones information for the kids as well (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWnvP97FdX0) and you could find other educational videos related to science on our channel that your kids could enjoy watching as well. The main goal behind LearningMole channel is to educate kids through using methods and tools that would keep them interested and motivated to know more (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abI5pHgxp4M). To succeed in that goal, we have brought different videos for the kids that would inform them with facts related to the world they are living in, such as knowing about the history of the Egyptian pyramids but in a simplified way (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd49MSD1iQ0), getting more informed about finance but in a small scale (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxmTTvGezro), knowing about tornadoes and tsunami (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWA9dpLtNrU) and even understanding what recycling is and why it is important (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UuUeoyYmxI). There are lots of things for the kids to know about through our channel which is helping parents who are homeschooling their children.

Learn to Count to 20 - Using Your Fingers and Toes
 
02:52
Counting in mind is easy for adults but it is not the same when it comes to kids, it is a little bit difficult and that's when they use some kind of assistance, such as counting on their hands and toes or else counting with using their toys and other objects in front of them. There is nothing to teach the kids how to count on their fingers and toes because there is nothing hard about the process, the only thing they should be keeping in mind is to count in the right order and at the same time understand that they could only count to 20 - 10 on the fingers and 10 on the toes - but nothing more than that. Parents and teachers should be paying attention to how the kids are counting, are they counting correctly and in the right order, are they paying attention to their counting skills? This is important because sometimes the kids might lose themselves and forget about a number in the middle of the process. One of the things that kids should know about since it helps them to count correctly is to understand that their fingers will only accept the first 10 numbers (from 1 to 10) and their toes will take the 10 numbers coming after them (from 10 to 20). This will make things a lot easier and will help the kids when it comes to using their hands and toes to count. At the beginning of the journey, counting on the fingers and toes will be just to help the kids memorize the numbers in general and move in the right direction, but later on, they might be using their fingers and toes to solve some mathematical operations they are given and make the whole thing much easier for them. Math is all about counting the numbers in the correct order, moving to the next step of getting introduced to the different mathematical operations, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06BSCCDb2rw). These are just the basics, because counting could be taught to the kids through lots of other ways and most of them include playing some games and using different toys, such as Lego pieces, play doh, characters, etc. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roMEZv1OObc). The interesting thing about the kids is that they learn easily and through lots of ways, so you could always try several methods before reaching the point where you believe that the kid got the information clearly and will be ready to move forward to the next thing they are supposed to learn. There are some math tricks which parents and teachers could check here and depend on while teaching their kids any of the different mathematical operations that are found out there (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twS7IsZ_ttk). These tricks make it more interesting for both the parent and the kids, the kids will feel the challenge and thus will be willing to answer and play the game, while the parent will be loving the method and waiting for the kid to provide the right answer. There are actually lots of tricks to play with the kids when it comes to math and these you could check on those links which we also have on our channel as some kind of help. There is the mental math tricks video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tx-AWPOERbs) and there is also the magic math games and tricks in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hpm-k--AWNs). Math in general is an interesting lesson for all the games that could be played and all the different magical tricks that could help in turning your kid into a mathemagician if he/she is interested in the whole thing to such an extinct (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5x0O4ArolQ). There are lots of tricks to teach the kids when it comes to math and lots of games to play, parents should just start with teaching the kids the numbers in general and letting them count in the right and correct order before they move forward to the point of teaching them addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. Enjoy watching this video with your kids and let them make use of their fingers and toes when it comes to numbers and counting.

Basic Subtraction for Kids - Counting Back on Number Lines
 
02:50
Did you know that the word subtract could be substituted with other words like minus, remove, take away? That's how kids get introduced to basic subtraction at the beginning of the journey. In this video, the focus is on teaching kids basic subtraction and how to count back on number lines. What is basic subtraction? Basic subtraction is about the basic rules that kids should learn when it comes to counting back and taking away. First of all, subtraction is not the same as addition, the bigger number should always come first and the smaller number should be taken from it, there is not reordering like addition (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdux-Xn35qE). Second, basic subtraction is about the two numbers only in the equation without overloading it with lots of numbers. Number line is one of the helpful methods that kids could use to do their addition and subtraction calculations because it gives them the chance to count their jumps and calculate the final number (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wn2YBpCIzis). Subtraction is the same as counting back and that's how the kids will count the difference on the number line, they will use the smaller number in the equation to count the jumps that will need to be made and that's how they calculate the difference and bring the final answer. How to use the number line for subtraction? Blank number lines are used to help the child on jumping and counting on them. Since this is about basic subtraction then the jump will be down backwards. If the mathematical equation which the child will need to solve is 4-3 for example then they will write down the 4 and then jump backwards three times to be 3, 2, 1 and this means that 4-3=1. It is really one interesting method to be used for teaching the kids math because they will be writing down what they are calculating through the jumps they will be making on the number line. This is one of the different mental math strategies that are taught to the kids out there and that's why kids could start by recording their steps and numbers on a piece of paper, but they should eventually come to the point of doing these different calculations in their minds without the need for using the paper. At some point and after practicing, the kids themselves will reach the point of managing to do the calculations without writing them down because their minds will get used to it all. There are different other methods through which parents could teach their kids subtraction while homeschooling them, such as using the small Lego blocks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsQHpE6D6PQ), using different toys and small characters which the kids already own (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ART8iVG3yHg), using play doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw91epryD28) and lots of other techniques and methods that would help in making the whole lesson much easier for the child. Practicing is very important when it comes to educating the child because learning is all about trying several times and about making mistakes. Help the child to practice several times, know the different vocabulary and terminology used, and let the kids start with recording their steps before they eventually come to the part of depending on their mental skills only. Parents should never worry because kids are different and some might take more time to learn something than others and some might find specific methods much more interesting for them than others, etc. so parents should choose the method according to the interests of the child and at the same time let them move with their own pace by offering a little bit of help throughout the way. Basic subtraction for kids should always start with small numbers before going up to reach the bigger ones. Let the kids get the whole idea behind basic subtraction through the small numbers which are easier for them to calculate, and then move forward with teaching them how to do the same but with bigger numbers. Mental math strategies for kids are really important because kids should not spend their whole lives counting on their fingers, they should move forward to the point of doing it all in their own heads.

Counting Games for Kids - Number Games - Counting Numbers
 
04:29
A fun math video to help teach your child counting skills, the numbers in English and basic math concepts of addition and subtraction. Use Mega Blocks to help with number recognition games, builder games for boys and much more, learn the number names in English and count to 20. Are you trying to make the counting lesson for your child much easier? We have an idea here that depends mainly on the Lego blocks and building a tower out of them just to help the child to count numbers. All that is needed for this lesson is the different Lego blocks - Mega blocks - and a dice to follow its numbers. Challenging the child is always a useful idea and in this game playing along with the child and making it appear more like a race to see who would win at the end. It starts with throwing the dice and then building a tower that consists of that number of Lego blocks, this will be repeated until the number that is being taught to the kid in the first place is reached. Choosing that number will depend on the parent and what he/she wants to teach to the child. The challenge will be in who is going to reach the final number first, the parent or the child. Kids will be looking forward to being the winners but this might not always happen because after all it all depends on the numbers appearing on the dice. If the kids lost, they will feel a little bit bad and thus will ask for this game to be repeated until they manage to win, which is a good thing because they will be more trained to count and will learn how to count (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5HSmzhC5nw). Teaching the kid to count could happen through different ways and through playing different games and through lots of different techniques but always depending on those games such as Lego will be more exciting for the kid, especially if he/she already loves to play with Lego in general - which we are sure of because there is no home out there that is free from Lego. When the kid is playing this game and trying to reach the number that the whole game is about, let them double check the numbers they are adding to one another because that's what counting is all about and that's how they manage to learn the English numbers at the end. In addition to using Lego blocks, there are still lots of other tools and games which the child could play with in order to learn to count, such as using play-doh through which counting the numbers could still be a good option (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I0FdpAigpU). It doesn't matter what the kids are using in order to learn to count, but what matters the most is that the kids are interested about it all and that they want to keep repeating in order to learn more, because practice and repetition are the main elements of learning anything. We have other lesson ideas that parents could try with their kids and which are played with Lego as well, such as building small blocks out of Lego that will be also based on using a dice and adding more blocks every single time according to the number written down (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roMEZv1OObc). The ideas that depend on Lego are numerous and the best thing about them is the fact that they educate the kids when it comes to different mathematical operations as well, such as addition (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLfSeSHWE78). Let the kids lead the game and give them the chance to try, make mistakes and correct themselves, and let them play for as much as they can because that's how they are going to learn eventually, through making mistakes and through repetition. How to count numbers? It could be through games, it could be through using the fingers and the toes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jkrRRXgFq8), and it could happen through counting the different tools that are placed in front of the child, and they all end up being effective, every one in its own way. Now play along with your child and let them count the Lego blocks that they have until they eventually reach number 20 - or the number which you were intending to teach them through this lesson in the first place.

Counting on from 1 to 20 - Even and Odd Numbers - Counting Numbers
 
04:34
Could your kids count the numbers from 1 to 20? Could they count once again but only the even numbers alone and then the odd numbers alone? Here in this educational video, we will help them to count the numbers from one to twenty and know how to separate the odd from the even. There are different ways to teach kids how to count and one of them is showing them pictures and videos that could assist them, playing with some toys and games which they could depend on and there are different others ways which parents could choose according to what their kids prefer and what they find the most interesting. In this educational video, teaching kids to count from one to twenty is the main lesson that they will be taught but in addition to that, this video is also teaching the kids to count the odd numbers from one to twenty and the even numbers also from one to twenty. Kids should know the difference and focus their attention on counting in both ways, when asked to do that in even numbers and when asked to it with the odd numbers. Counting the numbers could be done in so many different ways and one of them is the kids rhymes and songs which they could sing with, one of these songs is the "Ten in a Bed" that tells the story of the 10 bears rolling on the bed until they all fall off leaving it all to the first one only (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZC_ScHpCg8). We have lots of ways that kids could learn to count the numbers from and we have brought lots of them in our channel, such as counting through using the Lego pieces (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSMd8kMHIHo) and they could also learn to count through using their small toys and characters (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsx_YrR9CmE). you could also check these different videos related to teaching kids counting and letting them know how to count (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5gutmYmsaA), (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYmMjMBjMcI) and there is also the lessons that will give them the chance to differentiate between the ones and tens while they are learning to count the numbers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rJbXeuhHfY). Numbers and learning to count is all part of learning math in general and this should bring us to the different educational videos that we have which are related to mathematical equations and operations that work on the mental maths part that kids are taught in their early steps taken in the world of math (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ART8iVG3yHg). As much as it is important to find the right educational resources that your kids could learn something from, it is also important to pay attention to the number of hours you let your kids spend in front of the television or videos in general, because exposing them to such videos for a long period of time will affect them negatively on the long run. Sometimes trying several methods with the kids is beneficial because not all the minds are the same and those who might find a specific method is going well with them might turn out to be not favored by others. When you are teaching something to your kids, always do that through different ways and let them choose the one they find the most interesting for them and which they consider suitable. Counting numbers gets harder when the numbers go higher and kids go through these numbers bit by bit; they first go through the first bunch which is usually from 1 to 10 and then they go through the second which is to 20 and they keep going further whenever they prove their proficiency in the bunch they are already learning. In this video, kids are taught the numbers from 1 to 20 and they are given the space to count these numbers along with the video. After learning to count in general, the kids are then given the chance to learn counting from one to twenty but only the odd numbers and then they are taught to do the same but with the even numbers instead. Enjoy watching this video about counting numbers with your kids and let us hear about your feedback and how much effective it turned out to be with your kids and how much they turned out to like the whole video.

Lego Number Games - Counting Games - Counting Games for Kids
 
10:31
How to teach kids number recognition, counting, addition and subtraction? Lego is the best answer to give since it is found in every single home out there - who out there does not like Lego? Here in this video, the main tool used is Lego and that's how kids will manage to recognize numbers and learn to count. At the beginning, bring the magnet numbers and place them on the table or a board and test the child's ability to recognize them. First, let the child count the numbers then choose some numbers haphazardly without an order and ask them to identify them and second, go a little bit harder and point at specific numbers while asking the child to identify the number that should come before it. Moving forward with learning the numbers and after crossing this step of number recognition, parents should then come to the part of teaching the child how to count. Counting becomes easier with the Lego blocks because they give the child the chance to see those blocks he/she is counting, and that is exactly how this game is played. The parent will ask the child to bring the same number of Lego blocks that would identify the number written down or the magnet that is placed on the table. This is important because the child will manage to get the number of blocks and will at the same time double check them after finishing, and this is very important. After finishing the part of building the Lego towers beside each number, there comes a third step in this game that is about trying to let the kids compare the numbers together. For example, ask the child how many blocks are there between 10 and 4, at this point the kid will place them beside one another in order to count the difference. This is one method, other kids might actually do a calculation in their heads and bring out that difference, this calculation is subtraction (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-YBC4LPOQw). Along the process, parents should try to use some mathematical definitions in order to teach the child some new things along the way. For example, the parent could ask the child while they are counting the Lego blocks to form a tower for the numbers 'how many do they still need to reach their target?' and when they give the answer, ask them if this means that adding those two numbers will give them their target or not. These will help with the idea of subtraction and addition for the kids (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLfSeSHWE78). There are different games which the kids could learn math through and most of them are challenging enough to let them think, give their answers, and even sometimes ask for repeating the game in order to win one more time. Playing with your child means that it will all end up with a winner and a loser, and the kids always love to be the winners, which is why they might keep repeating the same game until they win. We have other videos on our channel that parents could depend on to teach their kids numbers and counting, here are some of the links to check: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSMd8kMHIHo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsx_YrR9CmE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5HSmzhC5nw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I0FdpAigpU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roMEZv1OObc Let the kids play with their favorite Lego toys and learn the numbers from 1 to 10 through them, not just that, but let them learn to count and know some basic addition and subtraction facts along the way; this would turn out to be the most exciting lesson for them after all. Let the parents learn a new lesson idea to use while homeschooling their kids in order to teach them numbers, teach them how to count, and bring the idea of addition and subtraction much closer to their minds. Enjoy watching this video and enjoy playing with the Lego blocks! A really fun matching numbers game using Lego blocks as a tool. Learn the numbers in English, counting skills and addition and subtraction with Lego and some magnetic numbers. A simple resource that will allow your child to explore numbers in a fun way. Count to 10, count to 20 and have fun with number recognition, or learning the number names in English.

Saving Money for Kids - Financial Literacy for Kids - Financial Education for Kids - Kids Finance
 
04:55
Teaching kids to save money and teaching kids about finances will lead to children having good basic financial literacy. Understanding when and how to save money and knowing about the importance of credit and bank accounts will help your child become finance literate from an early age. At an early age, kids fail to understand what saving money is and why it is considered important and this is the reason why they don't even know how to save money or why they are supposed to do it. It is important that kids know how they should save money, why is it considered important and where they are supposed to put the money they are saving. How are kids supposed to save money? That's a good question to ask and it is important that kids get an idea about the world of money and understand that even adults save money because they might want to buy something for themselves or they might need money at a specific moment in their life which they did not plan for, like a financial crisis. Kids could receive money from their parents and their family members on special occasions, like birthdays for example, and since they don't know the importance of saving some money, they put a plan to spend the money they have received on buying things, even if these things will be all about toys, and this is exactly when parents are supposed to teach the kids more about the value of money and that they are not supposed to spend it on things that are not necessary (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHwcbRjWEds). Parents are supposed to teach kids how to save money but this comes after telling them more about the importance of money in general and why they will need to save some of it; it could be for buying something in the future, it could be for any unplanned things that might appear, and it could be for other reasons that might depend on the person himself/herself. A parent should teach the child about earning money and investing it in something that he/she wants and this will be done by teaching them about earning money which happens through working, it could be through working for a company and doing some work for it and thus the salary becomes monthly, and it could be also through working for specific hours and getting paid for these hours. Since the kids are still young enough to work and earn money, parents should help them by giving them some money for the things that they might be helping with at home, such as cleaning with them, washing the car, helping with other things that their parents could pay them for. Where to save the money I have? That's a question some kids start to ask when they are taught to save money in general. There are different places for kids to save their money, it could be in the bank accounts made for kids and it could be through the easy way which is in a moneybox, but they should know how to save their money in general and not just go out spending the money for the sake of doing so (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxmTTvGezro). The next step in financial education and literacy for kids is knowing more about banks and knowing the difference between debit cards and credits cards (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0cbjc54kjI) and in which case will the person use them. Sometimes parents could not afford all the things that their kids might want and thus they might not be able to get the kids everything they ask for which is an enough reason for the kids to know that saving the money they receive at any of the occasions they attend will help them to get any of these things which their parents are not able to get, not because they are expensive but because they have got them lots of things before and they need to pay the money for other things. Do your kids know about saving money and the importance of such a thing which they should know more about from an early age? This should be the part of parents homeschooling their kids, to educate them more about finance and make them more educated on that matter. This financial education video helps with teaching the kids about saving money and the ways of doing so. Let them watch this video and tell us about the feedback!

Subtraction for Kids - KS2 - Subtract - Number Lines - Arithmetic - Mental Math - Counting
 
07:02
Do you know the different methods that could be used in subtraction for kids? One of these different methods is the number line which is considered one of the easiest and most preferred by the kids. Let us tell you more about number lines. Number line is one of the different mathematical methods that kids depend on in different things; counting, adding, subtracting, etc. and since it is one of the easiest that one could depend on out there, it is sometimes considered a little bit difficult with big numbers and require the kids to go through some initial steps first (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wn2YBpCIzis) The whole idea behind number lines is jumping on the numbers on the line forward or backward - according to whether you are adding or subtracting - and the number that will be stopped at will be the final answer that is needed. If you have one digit number in the equation, like 5 + 5, getting the answer from the number line would be easy, which will be the same with subtraction, such as 7 - 4. There is a tricky part related to subtraction for kids and using the number line to solve it. The trick is when the equation consists of large numbers that counting them on the number line will never be possible and thus will need another possible way to be used. Partitioning is the thing that kids will need to follow at this point; if they have a number that consists of digits and units, they will need to partition it in order to be able to bring out the answer while using the number line. If the mathematical equation that the kids will need to work on is for example 47 - 33, the kid should place 47 on the number line and before counting, he/she will need to partition 33 to 30 and 3 to manage working on that line. To make it easier, the kid could move back three large steps considering every one of them "10" and thus they will need to jump back three more steps on the number line and reach the final answer which is 14. Generally speaking, number lines could be from the easiest mathematical methods that could be ever used with subtraction for kids, but sometimes when the numbers get bigger, the process might get a little bit more complicated and all what the kids will need to do at this point is keep practicing in order to master it all at the end (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtwNvOdwiqA). In addition to the number line technique used in math while teaching subtraction for kids, there are still other ways to depend on and make the process much more fun for them. Subtraction could be taught to the kids through play doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw91epryD28), kids could also learn subtraction with using candies (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-YBC4LPOQw) which will be very challenging for them because they will want to reach the point where they will eat those candies, there are also some mathematical lessons given to the kids through using their favorite toys like the Lego or the building blocks and which they love the most (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1yYbfMfig4). Math could easily be part of the everyday life of your kid and this will happen through the way you tend to insert its rules in their life. When the kids are doing something with you, you could ask them to count something, remove a specific number from the ones already existing or even add to them and tell you how many are there - this will always give the kid the chance to think throughout the day and know how to solve the mathematical problems without worrying about how hard it will be on him/her or how much his/her mind will accept all these numbers and handle them. Educational videos are helpful to let you follow up with the different methods used in subtraction and know how you are supposed to teach your kids this specific method you have seen step by step. Educational videos make it easier for you to understand the whole idea and try it all with your kids.

Multiplication Facts for kids - 4 Times Table - 4x Table - Four Times Table - Times Table Practice
 
04:00
Are you trying to find an effective way to teach your kids the times tables? Multiplication in general is not that hard, but whenever the number gets bigger, the equation might become harder to solve but the initial steps taken in the world of multiplication is teaching the kids the times tables. Every number has its own times table and every times table is about multiplying the number by the numbers from one to ten - it could get further but would be harder for the kids to memorize later on. Number four times table urges the kid to count four more numbers every single time they multiply it by another, here is for example the times table until number 10: 4 x 1 = 4 4 x 2 = 8 4 x 3 = 12 4 x 4 = 16 4 x 5 = 20 4 x 6 = 24 4 x 7 = 28 4 x 8 = 32 4 x 9 = 36 4 x 10 = 40 And every single time a number in the right order is multiplied by four, the kid will keep adding four to the last result he stopped at. The times tables are considered the basics of multiplication and learning them, but there are other methods used as well which kids could learn through how to multiply and solve the different multiplication equations and questions which they pass by and are asked about. From these different methods, there is the famous grid table method used for multiplying the numbers composed of two digits (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9TWSto7FSU), there is also the method which depends on the Lego pieces to help the kids to count (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPW1bmLTFdA) and there are different written methods that include the famous number line that kids use with lots of other mathematical operations (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5v0AjM0jcPA). Math is considered the most interesting subject that kids could learn at home - or even in general - because there are lots of ways and techniques, and parents could even ask the kids to count and do some mathematical operations in the daily life situations which they pass by. These different situations that the kids pass by and could be asked about some mathematical questions urge parents and teachers to choose the right ways and interesting methods that would always keep the kids excited and give them the chance to answer. One of the important things to mention about multiplication and teaching it to the kids is leaving them well aware of the multiplication vocabulary that could be used in the story problems to give the kids a hint of what they are asked to do. Multiplication vocabulary include words like double, times, multiply, repeated addition, array, groups of, lots of, etc. which if any of them appeared in the story, kids should immediately understand that what is being asked from them is to multiply (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trlXHFaeZYw). You could also check other videos about the times tables on our channel - you will find from number two to number ten - to make it easier for you as a target this time, you could check the times table of number three just before four (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77gEdEUShiY) and the times table of number five which is directly coming after number four (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqlsUhAzHpY). Games are always the easiest to teach the kids because they are the most excited and interested at this stage, but there are different methods used in math which one will never be able to count since every single parent out there could come up with some good ideas which their kids will learn something from. Kids should always understand how to multiply and use these times tables before they reach the point where they are helped with memorizing it all. If the kids didn't understand the times tables, they will not be able to memorize them and answer the questions in the future when they are faced with them. Understanding is important because it will help the kids to answer the questions by thinking if they didn't remember the timetable of a specific number. This is all about the important things for kids to know about times table for number four.

Multiplication for Kids - Arithmetic - Addition - Common Core - Homeschooling - Maths
 
04:32
Multiplication for kids should be easy to give them the chance to love solving the mathematical problems and make it challenging for them to always try a little bit harder. There are different methods used to teach multiplication for kids and in this educational video, teaching them to multiply through using the number lines is all what we are going to share. The number line method used with multiplication combines addition and counting in the process to make it much easier for the kid to bring the final answer out. There are different steps which parents homeschooling their kids should teach the kids when it comes to multiplication and number lines. First of all, the kids should check the mathematical equation they should solve and then translate it into an addition math problem and second, the kids should use this addition equation they have written down to count on the number line they have already drawn from the beginning. At the beginning, the mathematical equation should not be long enough to give space for the kid to count on the number line without running out of numbers or space. Sometimes it could be easier for the kid to divide the number that should be counted into groups, if for example the equation that one should solve is 4x5 then it could be jumping five jumps on the number line for four different times with counting every single jump as one, and the number that the kid will stop on at the end will be the answer. There are different methods used for teaching kids how to multiply and not just the number lines method and some of these are even played with toys in the form of games to make it more interesting for the kids (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPW1bmLTFdA). On our channel, there were some ideas imposed to help parents homeschooling their kids teach them to multiply, such as using the basic multiplication grid method (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3duqrhE8Xw), there are the multiplication times tables (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r6IN-h9d-I) and some of the games played with play doh, building blocks or the Lego pieces. There are different mental math tricks to use with the kids to teach them multiplication which we have also tried before and turned out to be successful and help the kids to think while trying to get the right answer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYvf790iHUc). There is another method that is sometimes considered similar to the times tables and which is the multiplication table, in this method kids will be also depending on a table with the numbers in order to count on and solve the mathematical equation they are supposed to solve (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKom4XkX7-8). When it comes to the multiplication methods which you might want to teach your kid, you should always keep in mind that sometimes playing games while learning is the most interesting for kids and from those which you could try with your kids, you could try the multiplication aerobics through which the kids could learn to multiply and at the same time do some aerobics moves (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hICAoEIcLE). There are different creative ideas to think about when it comes to multiplication for kids and different trials that parents could try with their kids, they should just make sure that the kid is getting the whole idea, knows how to apply it and is finding it easy to handle and be dealt with, because otherwise it will turn out to be not effective for the child. Math is tricky when one don't pay attention to the small details and that is the reason why there are different tricks that kids should learn in order to know how to multiply - so get yourself ready with your ideas or try to depend on those which we have on our channel and try them out with your kids. What do you think of this multiplication for kids method that depends on translating the multiplication to an addition equation and then uses the number line to count the final answer? Try it out with your kids and let us know about the feedback! If you have any questions you want to ask regarding that method or any suggestions you have, send them all over to us!

The ABC - Alphabet Letters - English Alphabet - Phonics for Kids
 
07:10
Teaching kids the alphabet is one of the most interesting things parents could be doing when it comes to homeschooling, but there are a couple of things which they are supposed to pay attention to: first will be the ways kids memorize the order of the letters, and second will be how do they pronounce them; phonics is very important. There are different ways that parents and teachers depend on when it comes to teaching their kids the alphabet; some might depend on singing a song, others might depend on playing games, while some parents might depend on shapes and toys to let the kids relate every single letter to something that its name starts with that letter. For example, always having a cat to use it while teaching the kids letter "C" and how to spell it correctly. The idea of using objects, animals and different things used and seen in the ordinary days is helpful and needed because sometimes letters are named and pronounced in a different way. Again, letter "C" is an example for that, because the way it is pronounced as a name is not usually the same way it is pronounced when placed in words, such as spelling the word "cat", "cotton" which will be different than "cinema", and so on. This video is focusing on two important things that kids should be taught, but it is better to go through them in groups and not bulks in order to give their minds the chance to take it all in and at the same time be able to remember them later on. The first thing is teaching them the letters in general in the right and correct order and then moving forward to the step of teaching them how to pronounce them, in other words teach them more about phonics (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UGSFKYDRyc). There are different games that parents and teachers could play with the kids at home and school to make sure that they know the English alphabet and know the phonics sounds for every single letter. One of these games is matching the sounds they hear with the letters that are placed in front of them (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQoFRGX83to) and it could be also the phonetics games about the sounds of the letters which the kids could listen to and then tell the letter without having to choose between some placed in front of them (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vk4W7Vjqmx4). There are still lots of other games and activities that one could come up with, such as the tricky words which parents and teachers might say and give the kids the chance to write them down (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3XSDGpgqOU), this game might be more applicable for older kids who have gone through all the learning phases related to the alphabet, but it is still one idea for the parents to keep in mind. Teaching the kids the alphabet letters could also happen separately by focusing every single time on a specific letter; what is it, how it is pronounced, what are the words that carry the letter, etc. and give the kids the chance to keep all these information in mind and memorize it to manage answering any future questions and also to be able to know about the English alphabet in general. Here are some videos for some of the letters in the English alphabet taught to the kids separately; letter "N" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jg0bhC0gqRU), letter "E" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3Vja3_Rvjs), letter "S" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzwoPNQk1XY), letter "L" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVL9oskIn10) and you could check lots of other educational videos which you will find on our channel. The alphabet, the numbers, teaching kids math, science or just telling them some bedtime stories, are all things that parents homeschooling their kids are doing and that's why they will be always searching for different methods and new ideas that would excite the kids to learn and keep them interested during the whole lesson they are given, so parents should always be creative and search for the right resources that will help them. Enjoy watching this video about the English alphabet and phonics with your kids and let us know how much they ended loving the video and finding it interesting, let us know the feedback!

Math Games - Times Tables Aerobics - KS1 - KS2 - Arithmetic - Mental Math - Multiplication - Maths
 
02:54
Math games and multiplication times tables could be mixed up to educate the kids more about numbers and counting. Times tables aerobics is another mathematical method used to give the kids more energy and at the same time teach them how to multiply. Timetable method is one of the easiest and safest when it comes to multiplication for kids, it is the first step in the ladder of multiplication which the kids usually take - it is actually the basic multiplication method that teachers and parents depend on in schools and even at home while they are homeschooling their kids. Times tables aerobics is a method that Michelle loves because it is a little bit challenging for the kids, they will need to be aware of the timetable they are going to play with, they should listen and focus on the counting process in order to know what they are supposed to do with the number being said and they should be well aware of the moves they are supposed to do. In this educational video, Michelle was helping parents at home and teachers in schools to teach the kids the time tables while at the same time teach them some aerobics moves. The whole idea behind this math game for kids is to choose two different times tables - for example two and four - and ask the kids to raise their hands when a number related to number two times table appears (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAc1YC0sqss) and jump when any number in the timetable of number four appears (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZbNl0RutB0) and do both when the number mentioned is related to both times tables. According to experience, we could say that kids always love to play those challenging games that make them use their minds, reconsider the lessons they have learned in math before and eventually give the right answer or the right move, it depends on the game they are playing. Michelle has lots of suggestions and ideas when it comes to multiplication and she always suggests using the favorite games for the kids to make it more calling out for them. Play doh, building blocks, Lego, cartoon characters and even other toys could be exciting for the kids to learn something through - they will be playing with at the same time learning a new thing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPW1bmLTFdA). The grid method is one of the methods used in maths to teach kids multiplication (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3duqrhE8Xw) and there are also those math problems which will need to be solved and could be done through the building blocks that your kid owns (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pWka6dk3b4). Choosing the multiplication method that your kid will use will always depend on which one they prefer and which they use easily without any complications. The basic multiplication method could be considered the easiest especially when dealing with big numbers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9TWSto7FSU). From the other mathematical techniques which parents could teach the kids when it comes to math, there is the common core or the number line which is used with all the other math operations like addition and subtraction (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5v0AjM0jcPA). Math in general could be part of the everyday life, whether in doing some exercises and aerobics or in the daily conversations and activities that are done. You could ask your kid to count the plates you have taken to the table, you could ask him to count for you the remaining pieces of chocolate found in the box and then multiply them by two to know how exactly you still need, etc. There are lots of ways and methods used that could make math part of your kids' daily life and teach them how to apply the lessons they take in school or even at home on all the mathematical equations and operations they might need to handle and deal with (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYvf790iHUc). There are different ideas which you could find on our channel and lots of educational videos which you could check in order to find the right sources that will help you to home school your kids and let the whole process appear more interesting for them to avoid running away from learning :-)!

Learning English with Lego - Writing Letter 'P' - Phonics
 
03:38
Learning the alphabet letters goes through several steps, it starts with teaching the kids what these letters are and their order then the whole lesson moves forward to the point of learning how these letters are pronounced - phonics and sounds - and how they should be written down. Learning in general become more interesting for the kids when challenges occur and when games happen, and that's exactly the same reason why they will immediately fall in love with the idea of learning to write the letters correctly with the Lego pieces they own. Lego is very interesting for the kids in general and when it comes to learning new stuff, they usually become very excited to receive the lesson (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZT8ImgjSA-g). Writing the letter 'P' from the English alphabet is the lesson behind this educational video, where the child will not only manage to write the letter down in the correct manner with the Lego pieces, but he/she will also manage to draw the letter with their fingers in the air to show how it should be written down when it comes to paper. This is very important because it manages to help the child in writing down on paper in an easier way before wondering from where to begin when it comes to writing down this letter. Tracing the letter 'P' in the air starts with moving down in a straight line then up back through the line one more time with drawing a round at the right top side. This will also be the same method followed when it comes to writing this letter down on paper. Giving the child an opportunity to learn something through a different method will always be considered a challenge, which is the same with writing the letter 'P' with the Lego pieces, the child should choose where to place these pieces and should solve the problem of choosing the right size if there is no place for the one they are using, or else coming up with a different solution. As much as teaching the child something new is very important especially when it comes to how this piece of information is delivered, it is also important to place them in opportunities which they could solve and work out, because that's how they will manage to use their minds later on in this life. In addition to writing down the letters and knowing how this should happen in the correct way, there is also one important thing related to the English alphabet, which is the phonics sounds and how the letters should be pronounced (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UGSFKYDRyc). This is actually important because how the letter is pronounced on its own is different from how it should be pronounced when it comes among a word, and that's where lots of kids lose it all. Teaching the kids to write down the letters of the English alphabet is easy yet it might take time because it should be taken in small steps, but here is a quick video for how the letters should be written in general (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=339D5-WijRk). In addition to teaching the kids the letters through using Lego, there are other methods that could help them to remember these letters in general, such as using words and animals' names that start with every single letter in the alphabet (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIylRqK7NsI) and they could also learn to write these letters through making their shapes by using the play-doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7GsJrDdCVU). There are actually lots of interesting ways to deliver these lessons to the kids, but it will always depend on how the kid is receiving it and how effective it will turn out to be, because not all the kids enjoy the same methods used with them and some might not even respond to those which parents consider the most interesting, so parents should always ask the kids first and watch out for how they are responding. Lego is not only used in teaching the kids the English alphabet, but it is also depended on when it comes to math, so it is one effective method in so many different ways (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdlIHYRnjAg). Enjoy watching this video with the kids and let them learn how to write the letter 'P' while using the different Lego pieces.

Shapes for Kids - Learn the Shapes for Preschoolers
 
05:08
Learning the shapes is a lesson taught to the kid from the early stages of life to help them name those which they see in front of them, be it a toy or any other shape related to the objects they pass by in general. We have the circle, the square, the rectangle, the pentagon, the hexagon, the rhombus, the trapezium, the sphere and lots of other shapes which might keep appearing whenever the kids take one step forward in their educational journey. As much as it is important that the kids learn more about the different shapes that are found out there, they should also manage to differentiate between those which are very similar to one another, such as the circle and the sphere, the rectangle and the square, the hexagon and the pentagon (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9nMr4P843o). The interesting thing about the process of teaching kids more about these shapes is that it starts with drawing them, bringing the toys which they usually learn through, and then the whole thing moves to the point where they start pointing to the real objects they come across in their daily life and start mentioning what shapes they appear in. There are lots of lessons that the kids find interesting and when it comes to the ones related to guessing the shapes, it turns out to be an interesting one for them since they will take the challenge of guessing the shapes and waiting to know whether their guess is right or wrong (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VU1x8oIcvT0). There are lots of interesting things in the steps taken in learning the shapes for kids, because in addition to knowing them in their drawn-on-paper form, they also reach the point where they get more introduced to the 2D and 3D shapes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocvvov72_kc), and that is exactly the point where they start getting more introduced to these different shapes in different ways. In addition to knowing the different shapes and their names as well as differentiating between them, one of the lessons is knowing more about the properties of these shapes, how many sides, how many corners, etc. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ea_xGBiw1o). At the beginning of this lesson - or game as we love to refer to it - start with showing the kids the different shapes, let them get introduced to them and their different properties and remember their names, and then let it all work on the other way around and show them these shapes one more time without the names and ask them what they are named - this is one of the useful ways because it will work on their memory and will help them get introduced to these different shapes at the same time (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4BD3Rv17lo). One of the good ways to teach the kids something but with moving a little bit further with the lessons, parents and teachers could actually mix between teaching the kids about the different shapes surrounding them and at the same time teaching them about the different colors for example. This might be a little bit more difficult for the kid, but parents should never move to this stage until they have finished the first one and managed to learn more about its different details. Always take it easy when it comes to teaching the kids something because they might at first find it difficult at the beginning of the journey, give them only two or three shapes, ask them about their names afterwards, add a couple of ones more and repeat the process, etc. this will make the whole thing much easier for the kids to learn the shapes, remember them and come to the point where they could actually learn other lessons like the colors for example. Let your kids play a game and examine the level they have reached regarding the different shapes through guessing them, and here is a link which they could depend on to play the game through the different shapes brought here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocvvov72_kc). Enjoy watching the video about the different shapes found out there with your kids, ask them some questions, and let us hear back from you and know your feedback, was it effective?

Tricky Words for Kids - Tricky Words Activities
 
10:05
What does tricky words mean? Tricky words are those words which the kids might find a little bit difficulty in reading or writing, because when the letters are combined together, they produce a different sound than when they are alone. There are different tricky words which we have brought in this video to let the kids get used to them. Getting used to the tricky words happen through the method used in teaching the kids and in this educational video, the technique we are depending on is "read it, make it, write it" which are the steps that the kid will need to go through and perform. At the beginning of the activity, the parent will write down a tricky word on the board and then ask the child to read it, make it with the magnetic letters, and then write it down on the board. At the beginning, kids could create the words and write them down while they are looking on what the parent has written, but to make it a little bit challenging for them, the parent should clear everything and let the kid write down the letter without having any other resource to look at. This is a good technique to teach the kids to write down words without always having something to look at. The different tricky words which we used in this video are "saw", "what", "was" and they are actually used in lots of different sentences and the kids will use a lot throughout their educational journey. It is always important that the parent choose three or four words to play with and make sure to do so with those which their kids might find it a little bit difficult to read or write. These different games related to tricky words are helpful not only in letting the kids pronounce and spell the words correctly, but they also give them the chance to learn how to write down these letters or words (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqzSSBu02TQ). When it comes to the lessons taught to the kids, it is always helpful and more effective to use the different games and activities because that's how challenging the whole game will turn out to be and how the kids will actually learn something at the end. There are different spelling and writing games in general for the kids that will help them a lot in learning the English language correctly and know more about phonics as well (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxfEbpLQPAE). Learning the English alphabet letters, spelling the letters correctly, writing down those letters and being able to blend all these in the writing as well as the reading phase, are all different lessons which the kids will go through when they are learning English, since it is not that easy as some people think - or as adults perceive it nowadays - for the kids, the whole thing is different (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wmk5gY7Zb00). Using the tools at home, the different games and toys which the kids already own, and depending on some cheap resources, always end up being successful when it comes to teaching the kids something new, such as this lesson related to the tricky words in the English language. Always get creative with teaching the kids and always make sure to keep them the ones leading the game because that's how they end up being excited about it all and will even ask for repeating the whole game and trying other tricky words to write, make and read. What do you think of those different tricky words we have chosen? Did your kids work on them before? Did they manage to read the words correctly, make them and write them down once again? Are there any other words you would like to recommend when it comes to the tricky ones? Let the parents learn this tricky words technique for their kids and let the kids play with learning new letters and words and know how they are supposed to pronounce them correctly. Enjoy this video along with your kids and let us hear your feedback about how it all turned out to be. KS1 Phonics can be a challenge at the best of times but when you come across a tricky word to spell, it can be a real spelling challenge. Looking the tricky words phase 1 list can help to identify the words that your child will find difficult. Tricky words are basically words that cannot be spelled using the phonic sounds that children are taught or don't follow phonetic patterns. LearningMole focuses on educating children of all ages.

The Three  Little Pigs (3 little pigs) - Story Time for Kids - Fairy Tales
 
04:22
When it comes to the stories that parents tell to their kids, there are millions of them, because some parents might even use the old stories which they were told when they were once kids themselves and there are those who depend on the new ones which they hear about these days. The Three Little Pigs is one of the stories told to the kids in different times of the day and for different reasons; it could be a bedtime story, a story they are watching on the television in the middle of the day and it could be a story they are reading anytime during the day as well. The story of "The Three Little Pigs" is about the three pigs that decided to build their own houses and every single one of them chose the materials from which the house will be built. The first pig built the house out of straw, the second built his house out of sticks, while the third pig built his house out of bricks. After the pigs finished building their homes, the big bad wolf appeared on their doors and started asking every single one of them to let him in, the first pig refused and thus the wolf blew off his house, the second also refused and also the wolf blew his house, the third refused but the wolf failed to blew his house because it was made of bricks and when he tried to sneak into the house from the chimney, he fell into the open fire and that was his end. The stories parents choose to tell their kids should always carry a meaning behind them or even a message and parents should even ask the kids what do they believe was the message behind the story they have just shared with them. In the "Three Little Pigs" story, the message behind is telling the kids that giving all what they have and doing some effort in something they want instead of being lazy and choosing the easiest road will always bring them the needed results at the end, but being lazy and not doing all what they can might eventually bring them some problems to face, which was the case with the two pigs who chose the easy ways of building their homes, unlike the third pig who took the hard road and built his home from bricks and was the only one to face and get rid of the wolf. There are other bedtime stories which we have on our channel - you could choose to make them stories that you tell the kids during the day or let them watch them themselves. These stories include: The Three Billy Goats Gruff (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=US9eim1K-Pg), Rapunzel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtPKeaqNFJc), The Gingerbread Man (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvJo8mzsfdE), Little Red Hen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqlDJG2t_Ik) and of course there are lots of other stories which parents might already know about from their childhood times. Talking about stories for kids, there are things to be kept in mind in order to make it all sound interesting for them. First of all, when parents are telling their kids a story, they should choose the right sound and change their tone to make it sound more exciting and thrilling when needed and also the tone should be changed if there are several characters in the story. The second thing when it comes to stories is having a couple of questions at the end of it all to ask the kids and see how much they actually understood the story and how much they were paying attention to what is being said in it - of course this should not happen if it is a bedtime story because kids might be losing half of their concentration because they are getting into the mood of sleeping. The third thing about stories is that they actually help in teaching kids, whether to read, write or spell the letters that they come across, so they end up being helpful at the end as well. Do you have any other stories which you want Aaron to read for you? Let us know about your favorite stories to bring them right here for you!

Addition - KS1 - Addition for Kids - Real Life Maths - How to Add - Homeschooling - Maths
 
02:17
Do you know that using the games which the kids are used to play with and inserting the mathematical vocabulary within the day-to-day conversations is one of the effective ways that help them learn faster and become cleverer at it all? Addition is one of the mathematical operations that we usually learn the first thing at school, just after learning the numbers and knowing how to count (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jkrRRXgFq8) and that is exactly the same way kids are going through the process nowadays. Addition could be taught to the kids through lots of ways but Michelle thinks that mental math games end up being the most effective because it gives the kid the chance to think, play and end up with the needed answer. The real life maths is the lesson which Michelle is giving the parents through this educational video because it is one of the important steps that should be taken when it comes to homeschooling. The idea behind the real life maths is to use the math vocabulary within the day-to-day conversations that are built with the children in order to link the whole process to the life they are living and understand the reason behind learning how to add in the first place (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEQQl0u2Muk). There are different examples to explain how to use addition in real life; you could let the kids count with you when you are buying something, saying for example that you want two eggs for the cake, three eggs for breakfast and two eggs to keep at home, and then asking the kid how much would that end up being. If your kid already knows how to add, this will give him/her the chance to provide an answer and at the same time understand that numbers and learning how to add is not just in the world of math, but it is used in the real life as well (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkqMQJMtCrQ). At some point, using math in the everyday life situations will also help in the process of knowing how to add in the first place, such as showing the kids how they should count on their fingers, count the items if they are already in front of them or else use the number line or number square if there is a paper and a pen found near (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSPZpOB5TIY). Counting and addition are too close to one another, if the kid knows how to count numbers, it will be easy for him/her to add (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5gutmYmsaA). There are lots of addition games to teach your kids through using, it could be through using play doh, Lego, building blocks and lots of other games and toys that they enjoy playing with in general during the day (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roMEZv1OObc). At our channel, LearningMole, we have lots of educational videos that could teach you different ideas and ways to use while homeschooling your kids and there are also lots of informative and educational videos for the kids who could watch to receive some new information about the world they are living in, such as those related to science or other general beneficial information. Here are some of the links that you could check on our channel which are all related to addition to help in the process of homeschooling your kids in the right manner: Addition through solving the story problems (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeCEbvUvPEo), near doubles addition (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iice0r1z0JI), addition working with place value (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mk4Z7NxnWkg), addition through number games (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3q7imQuRBQ) and lots of other ones which you will choose according to your needs and the lesson that you want to teach your kid. One of the important tips that we always offer to parents while homeschooling their kids and teaching them math lessons is to be part of the game and to trick them. Just in the same the parents will be imposing their questions, they should be also the ones who are supposed to answer some and while answering, they should sometimes trick the kids to examine their concentration and knowledge of math by saying whether the answer is right or wrong.

Number Facts for Kids - Numbers 1-10 - Math Games
 
10:16
There are lots of number facts for kids and in this lesson the facts we are going to provide the kids with are related to number 10. Delivering these facts in the form of math games is helpful and it makes it easier for the kids to grasp the whole idea. Number 10 is the result of different mathematical equations done in math and these are the facts that we want the kids to grasp. There are lots of math games that could be used to deliver these facts, but we always believe that using the kids hands is considered the most useful because they will feel more personal while counting. Getting colored paper for drawing the hands, glue, and a pencil are all the essential needs for playing this game and educating the kids to count and learning the different equations that could eventually take us to number 10. At the beginning, let the kid place his hands on the paper and make an outline around them, it the kids could do it then you could let them take the lead to make it more interesting. Once the two hands with the fingers are drawn on the paper, cut them out and stick them on the other paper from the wrists while leaving the rest of the fingers not stuck to the paper, and finally start playing the game with the kids. The whole idea behind this math game is to teach the kids addition and counting through the fingers that the kid and the parent have created. The reason behind leaving the fingers without sticking them to the paper is to bend them through the process of counting. Start with bending one finger and then ask the kid to count the number of fingers not bent down and add them to the one they have bent, this will end up giving them the number 10 and will also teach them to count and to add (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx4R1YkxPso). Keep going through the same steps and let the kids be the ones leading the game, ask them to increase the number of finger they are bending every single time and then create the equation which will give them number 10 as the final answer in the end. They will need to go through all the fingers and will create different equations, such as: 1 + 9 = 10 2 + 8 = 10 3 + 7 = 10 4 + 6 = 10 5 + 5 = 10 6 + 4 = 10 7 + 3 = 10 8 + 2 = 10 9 + 1 = 10 Every single time the kid forms an equation to solve in order to bring number 10 as the final answer, ask the kid to write this equation down on paper as some kind of number recognition process (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ra-AlaLIUtA) to keep recognizing the numbers. So it will end up being a lesson to teach the kids to count, know how to add and learn to write the numbers down. Always get creative when it comes to teaching the kids a new lesson related to math, because the more it all turns out to be a challenge, the more they will be willing to find the answer and ask for repeating the same game but in a different way (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAlpqGKQOG0). There are different games that could be easily done with some tools found at home, such as paper and pen, which means that getting creative could be easily done at home, it needs no special tools or things to be placed and found. Lego blocks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roMEZv1OObc) and play-doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw91epryD28) are also from the lovable toys or games that kids depend on when they are learning because aren't they from the things that we all love to have at home? Addition is one of the initial things learned in the world of math when it comes to kids, just after they learn the numbers and know the right order for them, in other words, after they learn how to count, then comes the other mathematical operations. What do you think of this educational video done to teach the kids math and let them know how to add? Did your kids manage to know some of the facts related to number 10? Are there any other creative math games which your kids love to play in order to learn counting and addition from? Enjoy watching this video about number facts for kids and let us hear back from you about how effective it all turned out to be and whether your kids ended up learning some of the facts related to number 10 or else failed!

Lego Math - Counting for Kids - Math Games for Kids
 
12:00
Math and Lego, these are two things that come along with one another perfectly because counting with the different Lego pieces is interesting for the kids. This is not just about counting, but it will also take the kids a little bit further with learning to subtract and add. The Lego math lesson should be creative, even if this creativity will only appear in the display. In this math game for kids, the idea is in drawing a street with different blocks scattered all around it. Every single block (or square) drawn on the paper should carry a number on it, this number will help in the game when it starts, it will let the kids know the number which they are supposed to place on every single block. The number of Lego pieces taken every single time will depend on the number appearing on the dice. For example, if the first number the kid receives is 2, he/she will choose to place those Lego pieces in any of the blocks if the number on them is bigger or equal, and in case it is bigger, the next time the kid should make sure to use the number of Lego pieces which are going to fulfill the number of the block they are standing on. Playing with the kids while teaching them something is always one of the methods that would help them to focus on getting the answer and at the same time use their mind to think when it comes to subtraction and addition in order to bring out the right answers at the end. Using the Lego pieces is always a good idea because the kids usually love to play with them in general and create some shapes, so when they are asked to count while they are building their shapes, they will easily do it and when they are asked to add or subtract while they are also building their blocks of Lego, they will find it easier to find the final answer as well (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdlIHYRnjAg). There are lots of different ideas to use when it comes to math and since we are referring to the methods related to counting then we should say that there are lots of games to be used for such a purpose. Kids could learn to count while making shapes with play-doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEQQl0u2Muk), they could count with using cheerios or other sweets and be rewarded with them at the end (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rJbXeuhHfY) and they could also learn to count through the ordinary ways of writing the numbers on a piece of paper. When you are playing with your kids and trying to teach them something, always give them the time and freedom to think and do whatever they want because that will give them the time and the chance to think and consider the answer before finally saying it out loud. Don't rush the kids or make them feel that they are late in their answer, this will always ruin everything for them. There are different games and lessons which kids could depend on in order to learn to count correctly, and when we say count then we are also referring to addition and subtraction, and Lego is one of the most effective since it manages to let the kids not only think about counting and making shapes, but it also gives them the chance to consider the size and the colors when they are working out the whole thing, so it gives them the permission to think about the equation from different corners (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLfSeSHWE78). What else do you think could be taught through using the Lego pieces other than counting in the math lessons? We believe that in addition to math and counting, Lego could also be useful when it is used in teaching the kids to become creative by asking them to build their own shapes or castles, this will usually give them the freedom to show you where they could actually reach with their creativity. Lego is also one of the methods used while teaching kids the English alphabet and letting the kids build the letters through the different colorful pieces (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZT8ImgjSA-g). Enjoy watching this video about learning math and counting through using the Lego pieces and let us know your feedback about the effectiveness of this video with your kids, did they count the pieces and do the right calculations?

Number Facts or Number Bonds of Number 10 for Kids
 
03:41
You could call them number bonds, you could call them twin facts, you could call them number facts, at the end these facts end up being different facts that are used as a strategy to help the kids learn how to add. Every single number has its own facts, in this educational video the number we are giving its facts is 10. When we mention number 10, we should then mention the two different numbers that when added together will give number 10 as the final answer, such as 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5, 6+4, 7+3, 8+2, 9+1 and 10+0. Following these steps or number facts is helpful for the bigger mathematical equations that the kid will be taught later on, such as adding 20+80, adding 50+50 or even going a little bit more difficult and adding 900+100 or adding 400+600. Kids should focus on the first number first, they already know that 5+5 would give them 10 and thus they will end up knowing that 50+50 will be 100, and that's how the whole thing goes. Number facts really help the kids to do different calculations and several mathematical operations and it also make it easier for the kids to solve other complicated equations just by trying to think a little bit about the numbers found there and how they are supposed to be dealt with. There are lots of number facts' videos that we have on our channel and most of them mainly depend on the idea of teaching the kids addition (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk9wxO2tZA0). It is always better to let the kids think about a number as two smaller ones added up together, because this will give them the chance to enhance their thinking skills and manage to find the answers for the questions they are asked much easier. Generally speaking, teaching kids numbers and enhancing their counting skills could happen through different ways and by using several games, kids could be taught to count numbers through using Lego pieces (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSMd8kMHIHo), they could also learn to count numbers through using their favorite cheerios and placing them in the spaghetti sticks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwhPTaFJRkc) and they could depend on all the other games which they enjoy playing with at home, such as play doh, monster characters, etc. Math is always fun to learn for the kids, with all the games, the interactivity, and the challenges, it ends up with lots of things for the kids to do and lots of techniques for them to use in order to learn how to count, add, subtract, multiply and divide. The most important thing for the parent to focus on is to make different challenges because that's what kids always look up to and that's what make them eager to learn more and keep trying - they might sometimes even ask for the game to be repeated in order for them to win. There are different educational videos on our channel which you could check in order to learn addition, here are some suggestions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06BSCCDb2rw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3q7imQuRBQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAlpqGKQOG0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVM8iQMaZN8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ART8iVG3yHg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWE2AzEsgU4 And lots more which you could check yourself while going through our channel. Get creative when it is about educating your child and teaching them some tricks and games, especially when it comes to math. There are actually different mathematical games and tricks which parents could learn from an experienced teacher to depend on while homeschooling the kids and teaching them math in a more fun, interactive and challenging way. Addition is actually the first step taken in the different mathematical operations that are done out there, and there is also the basic addition as well as those more complicated equations that the kids will need to deal with later on. Making sure that these are taken easily step by step is important, so that the kids end up knowing how to handle the mathematical problems in general. Let the parents learn this mathematical number facts or bonds lesson idea and let the kids learn how to add different numbers according to their knowledge of number 10 facts.
