Today I’d like to focus on the educational programming offered by Netflix. Homeschooling with Netflix is a great option on those days where you are under the weather, or one of the children is under the weather. Netflix allows you to put on some educational TV and create a lesson with minimal effort. Here is a list I have compiled of educational programs from Netflix that you can refer to as needed for your homeschooling needs. I have also compiled a Homeschooling with Netflix Printable.
