My Favorite Main Idea Videos from Watch and Learn
Watch and Learn is a great site to watch FREE educational videos! WatchKnowLearn has indexed approximately 50,000 educational videos, placing them into a directory of over 5,000 categories. The videos are available without any registration or fees to teachers in the classroom, as well as parents and students at home 24/7. Users can dive into our innovative directory or search for videos by subject and age level. Video titles, descriptions, age level information, and ratings are all edited for usefulness. Our Web site invites broad participation in a new kind of wiki system, guided by teachers. WatchKnowLearn does not itself host videos—we serve as a library for links to excellent educational videos that have been selected by educators.WatchKnowLearn has created three Common Core classrooms that have aligned videos in our main directory with the ELA and Mathematic standards for grades K-2. Each subfolder lists a specific standard and contains suggested videos for that standard. Text exemplars have also been added and feature videos with text, pictures, and narration from each of the suggested reading materials listed on the CoreStandards.org website.
