He gravitated to the animal videos.. thoroughly enjoying the animal soap operas, animal journeys, magic of nature and so much more. It was good to hear those chortles of delight and gasps of wonder. "MOM! Did you know _______". When he was able to connect the dots between one video and another it was a wonder to him. :)
"What did you think of the music"?
"I would have liked you to shut the noise off, but you liked it so I didn't say anything". (sorry SmartKidz.... my lad just isn't that cultured I guess). :) He did enjoy the jazz collection though. And the ancient cultures was a hit! I often heard comments of "that's interesting mom", "why do you think they did that", "people are very different aren't they mom"? I so loved hearing that. :) It was so much an enjoyment for both of us to watch these videos that taught us so much.
Fridays was very much our "let's watch smartkidz day". Not saying that we didn't watch it other times throughout the week...but that was generally the lad saying "can we watch an animal video?" On Fridays I would sit down and say "let's look at this, or have you see this yet?". Since it was part of our homeschooling day it was easy to push in those learning videos such as this math one.
