What is one thing many of us homeschoolers lack? Answer: an audience. Record your students practicing their presentation skills:

  • Show and Tell
  • Book Reports
  • Science Experiments
  • Summary of Unit
  • Q & As
  • demonstrations
  • Interviews
  • Art and Creative Expressions
  • And so much more!

Click the Roll ‘Em icon to upload your video. Then watch and provide feedback to other presenters. Have your students watch, too! Share with your friends and family.


Dear Jennifer


  • Is your student having a challenging time acquiring a certain skill?
  • Do you meet with resistance during a particular subject?
  • Do you need some help brainstorming a solution to a particular issue?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions, ask a certified teacher. Click on the ‘Dear Jennifer’ icon. Write me, and I will help you generate some ideas to support your struggling learner.
