If you're like me, and you don't have cable or satellite tv, and you also live in a town with a less-than-satisfactory library, finding videos and DVD's to supplement curriculum can be difficult.
But we don't have that problem anymore.
Netflix is now as much a part of our homeschool curriculum as math and science.
What do we watch? Just about anything. From documentaries on Rome and dramatizations of great literature to Discovery Channel series like Mythbusters and Dirty Jobs. It's awesome how much we've all been learning though the wide variety of programs we've been able to watch.
I'd previously been hesitant about spending the $10 a month on the Netflix subscription. But then I remembered how much I've spent in overdue fines at the library — and the cost didn't seem like that much after all. Plus, we have so much more to choose from now than was ever available at any library. Netflix has been entirely worth it for us.
What about you? Have you ever considered using Netflix for homeschooling?
