Great Movies

Lights. Camera. Action! Great movies can kindle curiosity, teach kids important life lessons and make it easier for parents and kids to discuss sensitive issues. Be sure to take time to ask questions, role play and extend the program with related books and activities. Take turns selecting the evening's films, so everyone plays a role in movie night. Take advantage of DVDs with added footage and commentary from actors and directors. They can give interesting insights into how movies are made, how special effects are created and more. Give your own movie reviews afterwards or create your own "rating" system.
