MarshMedia is a company that creates education products for schools and today I am going to tell you about their Homeschool Special! However, they are attempting to reach out to the homeschool community, and they are offering a great deal to share with any homeschooling parent!
Dan and Brenna Witcher purchased MarshMedia in 2011. It had been founded by another married couple way back in 1969. Their basic goal was to create health education programs for students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade. They sell these programs to schools all across the USA and a half dozen or so other countries.
What does MarshMedia cover?
It is important to note that MarshMedia really does not focus on sex education, however, their puberty programs are their "specialty" and what they are most known for. My children are on the cusp of what MarshMedia specializes in as their suggested age for their puberty videos starts at third grade, and my boys will enter third grade in the fall.
That being the case, I didn't feel they were quite ready to view the puberty videos. Instead, I chose to focus their viewing in the "Hygiene" category and also in the "Health & Safety" category.
The picture below is my eight-year-old son, Sidge, watching the video: GO SLOW WHOA -- NUTRITION.
I even took a video of Sidge watching this video. His three other siblings (ages 9, 5, and 3) are watching the video behind him:
My kiddos loved this video. It was set up like a game show with Jonathan Apple, Glass of Milk, Turkey Sandwich, and Crunchy Carrot playing a game show about nutrition. They laughed out loud and cheered for the contestants and generally just thought this video was fantastic.
I also showed them a video on washing their hands, and I personally viewed some of their puberty videos. There are six different puberty education series to choose from which allows customers the opportunity to find the program that is right for their particular student. My three-year-old repeated back some of the facts on the hand washing video to me days after we watched it -- indicating that she was really attentive!
Now here is the part that I really think homeschooling parents will be VERY interested in. MarshMedia is offering an incredible deal to homeschooling parents. Details of this offer are introduced by clicking here: Homeschool Special. But I want to quickly summarize! Any homeschooling family can receive access to the nearly 60 programs for only $50! And you can watch the videos as many times as you would like through the end of this year (December 2017!) These programs normally sell to schools for $70 each! This basically means you can watch the videos for under one dollar a piece!
I encourage you to visit MarshMedia to read customer reviews, watch a short clip of the video, and read more about what that particular video focuses on. You can also read more about them on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and YouTube.
This deal is incredible, and I really think that homeschooling parents could spend the fall semester doing a "health" unit and just use these videos! Younger kids can benefit too (as mine did) but those of you with kids in grade three and up? This is for you!
