Adding selected and intentional Satellite TV programming into one's curriculum can give your student (son or daughter) something they would never get at a traditional school.
Now, this is not to say just let your kids watch TV and call it school.
This would be homeschooling at it's worst.
Intentional show selection at predetermined times is the preferred method.
History shows from government to war to entertainment to sports just start the selection available.
One of my favorites, Mythbusters, brings science to life by connecting to real life.
The simple steps the hosts go through make it within reach of even young students.
This is one example of how meaningful and intentional show selection can add value and interest to your task of homeschooling.
Probably a side benefit underrated with Satellite TV as a tool is how it can often bring a dad into the curriculum delivery more.
Mom's are a big part of homeschooling, in general.
Dad's behind the scenes tasks, whatever those may be, often keep him away or in a different role.
Sitting the kids down with dad during one of his educational shows like the history channel or NFL films special can created special memories, even for a lifetime.
Satellite TV brings quality content, interesting delivery, and ties knots of family cohesiveness for a lifetime of memories and foundation of learning.
Integrate programming intentionally and purposefully and your student will come away with something few will get during their childhood educational years.
It's worth the investment.
