I've talked about our movie nights before. It's a great way to spend time together with the family, inexpensive, and relaxing. Here's a funny story- For Christmas my husband's brother's family and my family decided for Christmas this year we were going to give a family gift. Couldn't be too expensive, just a little something. Well, when we got together to exchange gifts it was quite a surprise.
You see, I put together this movie night basket of sorts for them- movie candy, popcorn boxes, popcorn and the like...........
As they opened their gift they started to chuckle.....
They had put together for us a movie night packet- movie candy, movies and the like! LOL!! We laughed so hard! ;)
Here's another funny.... My husband and I have a joke between us.... We only watch sucky movies! LOL... It's not on purpose, we just only pick movies that suck! Our first date we saw a movie that sucked... I can't even remember the name of it, Nicole Kidmann was in it, but I can't remember the name of the movie... Anyway, a good majority of the movies we've rented have also sucked. LOL
Do you think I could say suck one more time? suckity suck suck suck......
Anyway, here's a tool for you so that YOU don't watch a "sucky" movie! Focus on the Family has a Plugged in Movie Review and it gives reviews for you on the movies that are out there :)
If you want to bring movies into your homeschool, Teach With Movies appears to be a good source :) It is $11.99 a year, but it looks like it is really good. I haven't paid the money- so I can't say for sure, but if anyone out there has or does, please let me know ;)
Movie Sheets is a free resource that has several different worksheets for different movies you can show in your classroom :)
Or, you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.... Please, don't forget to silence your cell phones :)
