Finding YouTube channels for homeschoolers is one of the easiest ways to supplement your homeschool. There are thousands of educational videos to choose from.
We’ve been using YouTube Channels in our homeschool from the get go. YouTube is almost always on our list of homeschooling plans for the day. I like to make playlists and then we watch them during lunchtime.
Actually, last year this was our only resource for science. And you know what? I think they learned way more from watching YouTube channels for homeschoolers than any science curriculum we have ever purchased!
They are fun, quick and easy and there are no long books to read or papers to fill out. Just the tv and some fun and silly videos that make learning fun and relaxed.
Searching and making playlists is so easy.
Step 1: Sign up for a free YouTube account (your own channel)
Step 2: Browse a topic. History for kids, Science for kids, ETC.
Step 3: Choose a video you would like to use in your homeschool.
Step 4: Add the video to a playlist to save and watch later. Below the video you will see “ADD TO” option click it, then create a playlist. Keep adding videos to that particular playlist or make more playlists. Add a few videos when you get spare time and you could have a whole year full of vids to watch and learn with your kiddos before you know it. NOTE: you can also save whole playlists created by others. Below is one of my Playlists. 😉
