Overview

With musical videos featuring concepts like time, outer space, the body, and animals, kids will have a blast with these bite-sized videos featuring characters that keep them laughing and learning. Kids will discover facts about their favorite animals, grasp the order of the days of the week, and learn information about the solar system. Each video is approximately 2-minutes and most of the videos are part of a series, with 5 videos per series. The videos can be used to preview a unit, learn new concepts, and reinforce skills.

These songs are catchy for kids and enjoyable for teachers! The Learning Videos app is available on the iPhone and iPad. These videos can be streamed over a Wi-Fi connection or downloaded to your account's virtual backpack, which allows you to watch these videos where Internet connection is not available.
