Tips on How to Enhance Your Homeschool Curriculum with Media

Sunday, June 04, 2017


We are the only people we know who are not subscribed to a cable service, or who do not watch television. For some reason, people find that "strange" about us. When asked why, and believe me, we often get asked WHYYYY, Alex and I tell them that we don't want our kids' frontal lobes fried. Kidding aside, we don't want our kids' frontal lobes fried. 

More than that, we don't enjoy advertising companies telling our kids that it is perfectly fine to drink powdered juice with aspartame or that too much sugar and instant food are okay. When you leave your kids to watch television it leaves you little control of the language, ideas and concepts that are presented to them. 

This does not mean though that we are detached from media. As a matter of fact, we have quite an obsession with movies, science videos and short films. Alex dedicates a huge portion of his time reviewing films and videos so he has a database where we pull out our family-friendly movies that inspire and stimulate learning. You can't blindly rely on films labeled 'child-friendly' as some of them have themes your child may not yet be ready for. Homeschooling gives you the opportunity to be mindful of the exposure of your kids to films, music, literary work and the like. 

I am happy to partner with PureFlix and their Homeschool Curriculum Movie Resources where they find you help the right content to help you enhance your child's education. Find below my tips for enhancing learning in homeschooling.
