Using YouTube In Your Homeschool




As a homeschool parent there are going to be times when you could use a little help. For example, when my daughter wanted to learn how to crochet, I was a little scared. I didn't exactly know how to do it myself, let alone try to teach someone.

That's when I did what any 21st century mom would probably do. I went to YouTube. 

Friends, my daughter was crocheting doll clothes by the end of the week. I was intrigued and most of all excited! Excited that I had this wonderful resource to help me when I truly needed it. Now my daughter is learning to play the guitar and she is getting very good for her age. You know where she is getting the lessons? You guessed it...YouTube.

Today I want to share a few of our favorite YouTube channels and ideas that I feel are very beneficial for homeschoolers. Enjoy!

******************************

Are you worried about your children being on YouTube?

You can create playlists and add any video to those playlists. You can make them public, for others to see or you can make them private so that only you and your children can see them. When you click play all the videos in that playlist will play in the order you placed them.
