How to Use Musicals in Homeschooling

Sing-along shows and movies can be incorporated into homeschooling. The idea about homeschooling is to keep it fun and interesting.

Here are a few ideas you can implement with sing-along shows & movies.

  1. Create a dance. Kids can create a dance that goes to their favorite song and perform it for you. Then they can teach it to you for extra fun.
  2. Create a song. Often kids are inspired by the music they hear, so ask them to create a song for you and perform it.
  3. Write a poem. Maybe creating a song isn’t your kid’s jam, so ask them to write a poem.
  4. Write a report. I lay out exactly how we do reports from TV shows on our Shows to Watch for Homeschoolers on Netflix post.

If you’ve watched everything there is to see on Netflix, there’s always Hulu, Disney+, CuriosityStream (a documentary focused online entertainment service) and Amazon Prime Video!
