Top Educational YouTube Videos for Preschool Learners
Screen time is a controversial topic - you should always do what you think is best for your tiny one. But, if you're a believer in using screen time as a tool to keep your tiny one engaged and learning, I want to share 3 of Eason Learning Academy's favorite YouTube channels.
These videos are engaging and can be embedded into early learning curriculum to help tiny scholars learn foundational skills they need for preschool.
One of our favorite YouTubers is Monica Sutton. She has tons of circle time videos on her channel, they are a great way to start the day. She covers the weather, days of the week, shapes, numbers and letters. She gets your tiny one moving by singing and dancing, plus she engages them with writing and craft activities. I highly recommend her skill building videos for numbers and the alphabet. Here is one of our favorite circle time videos:
Our next YouTuber has a channel that is all about books. StoryTime at Awnie's House engages tiny scholars through read alouds. Her read alouds are so engaging! She shares the pages of the book on screen as she reads and her voice is super animated. Her channel has playlists of different themes and genres, so it's easy to navigate. You can pause and ask your little one questions, make predictions and create post-reading activities. One of our favorite read alouds is the classic: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr, John Archambault and Lois Ehlert.
Kids Academy has great animated educational videos for tiny scholars. They cover everything from the alphabet, to numbers, to science, geography and more. Their content ranges from having very short videos that introduce a small skill or topic, to longer videos that address more complex ideas. Their videos also range from preschool to about 3rd or 4th grade. Here is a short phonics video from Kids Academy. These kinds of videos are great if you're introducing a letter or sound of the week.
These channels share only a small glimpse of the educational content that you can find on YouTube. I hope these videos add joy to your tiny ones learning.
If you use screen time, what video content does your tiny one enjoy?
