I am part of the #StreamTeam and receive Netflix streaming for a year in exchange for this post
How my Whole Family Learns From Netflix #StreamTeam
One of the first things that I started using Netflix for was for my kids to learn from their favorite shows. With both of my children having special needs, they learn better when it is taught through a movie or a show that they like.
The Magic School Bus Rides Again
The new show The Magic School Bus Rides Again is a huge favorite in the house. My oldest Korey is the perfect age to start understanding the plots of the shows and it helps him learn a variety of science, math, animal and more topics.
Often he will start to fixate on a specific topic and need more answers that the show or I cannot provide, so then we turn to Google! It’s a great tool to help him answer those problems.
Thanks to Disney being on Netflix now, we also got a great culture lesson about Hawaii from Moana. Even as an adult I loved learning about their beliefs and how some things hold great significance to them.
Super Why is another great show that is on Netflix that has helped both of my kids learn how to spell and make proper word sentences. It gives the kids the chance to try different words in a sentence and hear/see which ones make the most sense to make it all fit together.
The next time you are browsing Netflix with your kids, see which shows you can get them to learn the most from and relay the information back to you. It’s more than just an entertainment tool and can go great with teaching them lessons.
