Homeschool With Movies
This week PureFlix.com unveiled a new resource for Christian home educators – a special collection of videos to supplement Science, History, and Geography lessons with entertaining, interesting and informative movies and documentaries!
We all know that our kids learn a lot from documentaries and educational shows because the material is presented in a fun and entertaining way. Movies and documentaries can be a great way to reinforce things they have learned in their regular curriculum, or refresh their thinking on concepts they may not have fully understood before.
PureFlix has helped homeschoolers out by organizing content to enhance your educational goals this fall, for every age group.
And it is available FREE. Subscribe today at the link below, to receive homeschool emails from PureFlix and PureFlix will send you weekly emails for four weeks.
Each e-newsletter will highlight a new educational topic and will guide you to great video resources, FREE.

When you sign-up to receive the PureFlix free curriculum resources you get links to age appropriate streaming videos including:
- “Our Fascinating Universe”
- “Drive-Thru History”
- “Famous Explorers”
- “Creepy Things”
- Also videos that teach character like the 3-2-1 Penguins series (I still love those!)
Those are just a few of the targeted videos you will have access to during your four-week homeschool curriculum supplement.
You are not obligated to subscribe to their full service to use the homeschool program, but if you opt to stick with them, PureFlix has a lot of classic movies and documentaries that will make nice supplements to your christian curriculum.
They offer a free month of service to everyone on a trial basis (like NetFlix or Hulu but with classic films and videos from a Christian perspective) and then it is just $7.99 per month for unlimited streaming. So you can keep using it all year-long.

PureFlix.com Starts Initiative to Help Homeschool Parents, Students
Contact: David Migdal, 201-602-2910
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 13, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ — As the school year kicks into gear, PureFlix.com, a leader in the faith and family streaming video space, is starting an initiative designed to complement the efforts of families who are homeschooling their children.
Parents can sign-up on the PureFlix.com homeschool page for a free, four-week curriculum support tool kit and get access to thousands of documentaries and titles on science, history, Biblical stories, animals, government and more in the company’s growing video library. Every week for a month, suggested titles will be e-mailed to subscribers to the program.
Some of the more popular titles on the platform include “Drive-Thru History,” “Our Fascinating Universe,” “Ancient Culture,” and “3-2-1 Penguins” and “Friends and Heroes.” Singular titles as well as episodic series are available in several categories. In the Kids category, for example, titles are broken into several age-appropriate segments.
“For the past six months, we’ve listened to what homeschool families have told us about the support they need to enhance their homeschooling efforts,” said Greg Gudorf, CEO of Pure Flix Digital. “Based on that feedback, we decided to launch this initiative and use our videos to help them and their children.”
“We strongly support Pure Flix in their efforts to assist families with healthy media choices,” said Tim Lambert, president of the Texas Home School Coalition (THSC). “Putting parents in charge of creative ways to enhance and enrich their children’s education is a critical component in today’s confused culture.”
According to recent statistics, the number of children being homeschooled is booming. The National Center for Educational Statistics estimates that 1.8 million children in the 5-17 age bracket are being homeschooled in the U.S. and that between 2003-2012, the number increased by 61.8 percent (677,00 students). Homeschoolers represent 3.4 percent of all students between 5-17 years old.
What’s driving the growth? According to consumer research conducted by Pure Flix at several recent homeschool conventions in Texas, Florida, Georgia and California, the reasons range from the need to emphasize a Christian worldview, to issues involving safety at schools, the Common Core curriculum, and the teaching of controversial topics.
“The growth has been phenomenal and shows no signs of slowing down,” said Gudorf. “The interesting thing is, not all states report how many homeschool students they have, so the numbers could be even larger than reported. We are pleased to be supporting homeschool parents via our PureFlix.com.”
