One of my FAVORITE features on Youtube is the ability to create playlists. You can create playlists that include any videos on Youtube. This is especially helpful when you want to share a group of educational videos with parents/students. This is also a great way to share collections of video clips that students can watch during centers, snack time, transitions, etc. I like to create playlists that focus on concepts we have already learned or to give kids a head start for lessons to come.
I liked to post playlists on my classroom blog and encouraged parents to let students watch them at home. It is better than watching Sponge Bob and my playlists helped them practice counting, spelling, routines/rules and more!

Below are some example playlists I used the past couple years teaching Kindergarten:
This playlist includes videos to reinforce math skills. I grouped them specifically for math in September each year. It was nice because all my videos were grouped together and played back to back. The kids loved them and could access them at school or at home via our class blog.
This playlist focuses on phonemic awareness/phonics.
Sooo…. Would you like to learn how to make a playlist? Here is a short video from Youtube to teach you how:
You might you prefer these 2 tutorials. They aren’t as entertaining as the previous video, but they get to the point a little quicker.
