BrainPOP is the ultimate online homeschool curriculum!
In this day and age, so many parents are thrust into homeschooling, without having plenty of time to prepare. I’m not joking when I say that I researched homeschooling for over 5 years before pulling the trigger and I still felt totally lost and overwhelmed.
The things about homeschooling is that everyone you meet will tell you about this “perfect” curriculum that you just “have to use.” But no one ever mentions the same curriculum twice, which leaves you spinning in circles trying to find out exactly what you should try first.
And, let’s be real: homeschool curriculum can be very expensive. Ain’t nobody got an extra $1,000 lying around, waiting to be dropped on a curriculum that you could quite possibly end up hating after just a few days.
But BrainPOP takes all the guesswork out of homeschooling! No need to spend hours chasing down the perfect curriculum or researching every topic you want to learn about! They’ve got you covered!

All About BrainPOP Homeschool
BrainPOP is an online learning supplement, designed for grades K-8. Using interactive movies, games and challenges, kids love learning! Parents love the ease of using the program and how it can simplify and transform homeschool days!
Up to 4 Kids for Each Account:
I love a curriculum that I can use with more than 1 kiddo. With BrainPOP Homeschool, each teacher account can add up to 4 kids. That means that you can easily assign movies, games, quizzes and challenges to all 4 of your kiddos, grades K-8!
All Your Subjects in One Place:
While BrainPOP Homeschool isn’t considered a full curriculum, it’s exactly what we need as relaxed homeschoolers to make sure we are covering everything!
Some of the subjects currently offered include:
- Social Studies
- Engineering & Tech
- Arts & Music
With over 1,100+ topics, there’s always something the kids will enjoy learning about.
The Easiest Thing Ever to Use:
If you know me, you know it’s gotta be simple if I’m going to stick with it. So many curriculum require hours of prepwork each week, complicated supplies and more effort than I’m willing to put out.
But BrainPOP Homeschool is probably the easiest way to ensure learning happens in our house! I set aside about an hour each quarter and create custom assignments to Barrett. I don’t include due-dates so we can work through them at our own pace.
BrainPOP does all the dirty work for me! I can easily track Barrett’s progress and assignments in the teacher dashboard.
With built-in reading support, creative projects, learning games and educational movies, kids’ achievements are boosted and they fall in love with learning.
The to-the-point, simple and clean learning movies keep kids highly engaged with the fun topics.
How We Use BrainPOP:
As super-duper-relaxed-almost-unschoolers, we use BrainPOP Homeschool as a core element in our homeschool. Barrett logs on, completes any of the assignments and then we head to YouTube or Netflix to find a educational video on the same topic. After that, we do a hands-on activity or dig deeper into the assignments. I love that kids can choose between fun challenges, movie-making, coding, simulations and other fun assignments.
The mobile app makes learning with BrainPOP Homeschool a breeze! We can watch fun movies in the car, in our camper or while at Grandma’s house. And because the lessons are engaging, Barrett actually ASKS to do them!
