I do lots of talking/teaching during videos. I add information about the artist, ask kids to watch for what's coming, etc. It makes the video more of a teaching tool and it helps the kids who's attention spans are a little shorter.

Did you really like these videos? I thought they were too slow and boring to show my kids. I teach 1-4. I liked Mary Cassett the best, but I haven't used any in class yet.
