More Goops and How Not to Be Them by Gelett Burgess

Summary: Deep in the heart of every parent is the wish, the desire, to have other adults tell us, in an unsolicited way, just how very polite one’s child is! This perhaps was even more the case in 1903, when Gelett Burgess produced his second book on the Goops. With entertaining cartoons – cariacatures of misbehaving children – he described many different breaches of tact and good manners.

Burgess wrote several books of poetry on the Goops, each poem describing some significant way in which an unthoughtful or unkind child could offend polite society and often offering the hope that the listener would never behave that way. Ahem! Well, perhaps very few people have succeeded in not acting Goop-like at some point in their lives, but read along with Burgess as he attempts to define, in a humorous fashion, exactly what the differences between “Good” and “Goop” are!
(Summary by Mark F. Smith for Librivox)

Math videos at Math Playground

Math Playground has lots of informative videos on a variety of math topics, from Numbers and Arithmetic to Algebra and Geometry, and everything in between.

Parents, please be aware these links will take you away from My Audio School, to a website which allows pop-ups.

Videos show a whiteboard with a teacher’s voice, explaining how a problem is worked. In addition to numbers, some videos show graphics, such as bars divided into fractions, etc.

There are also neat manipulatives, make-your-own and pre-made worksheets, and flashcards, though none of these appear to have an audio component.
