There is a huge debate about whether or not preschool-age children should be allowed to use technology. Whether or not parents and teachers should limit the amount of time that preschool children spend in front of a screen is a major part of that debate. However, we cannot ignore the fact that these children cannot avoid technology forever.
Like it or not, technology is here to stay. While we do not have to create a generation of video-obsessed children, we can use technology to our advantage and allow them to learn through the use of various educational videos. Even if their time on the internet and watching videos is limited, allowing kids to watch educational videos is a great way to allow them to experience things they cannot learn from home.
If you are one of many who have embraced the educational value of videos, then this post is for you! We have compiled a list of the best learning videos for preschool aged children. This list is focused on videos that teach them about things that may be hard to experience from the comfort of their home or classroom.
Blippi is an extremely entertaining guy for the preschool-aged child. He sings and dances and is dressed in really bright colors. All of these things are what make the Blippi videos a series that many kids are drawn to. In this video, Blippi visits the zoo and gives kids an up-close look at animals that they cannot even see at the zoo itself.
If you have any experience with a toddler in the last year or so, then you are probably familiar with the original baby shark song. However, were you aware that Baby Shark also has songs that can be beneficial for learning. This song answers questions like how deep is the sea allowing preschool aged children to learn about the sea from their favorite characters.
Rob the robot is a loveable character who covers a variety of science topics in his show about all things science. Science can be a bit of a hard topic to help preschool-aged children understand. So, this show is especially helpful in that manner.
This animated video not only teaches kids some scientific information about bugs, it also teaches them about cleanliness. This is a multifaceted video that shows kids why leaving feed out of the proper place can attract bugs to places you do not want them to wind up.
Videos can be a great tool to teach your children about concepts that are difficult to approach without technology. As an added bonus, kids seem to be inherently attracted to animated videos, songs, and other forms of technology. Even if you want to limit your child’s exposure to screen time, you can still benefit from allowing your child limited access to beneficial educational content.
