Netflix

**For those of you joining me from the A to Z challenge, welcome! I'm homeschooling through the alphabet.**

I've mentioned books and the Internet as homeschooling materials. Another valuable asset to homeschooling is Netflix.

N is for Netflix

Being able to watch documentaries about whatever topic we're studying is great for helping my children remember. For instance, when we were studying the Revolutionary War, I was able to find movies about Paul Revere, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson.

Another reason I love Netflix is that there is never a reason for my children to have a sick day. While they may not feel well enough to do bookwork, they usually can focus on some educational show on Netflix.

On a non-educational note, my children have discovered some of the older TV shows. My girls love watching Leave It to Beaver. The Boy has watched all of The A-Team episodes.

What is your favorite thing to watch on Netflix?
