Learn New And Interesting Facts With Netflix! #StreamTeam @Netflix #Ad



    As you all know, I am a veteran educator.  This is not always good news for my kids because I always make sure that they keep learning even when they are off during summer vacation.  Since I know they get overwhelmed with schoolwork during the year, I try to make their summer learning as fun as possible.  That is exactly where Netflix comes in!  

    Netflix helps our family to learn new and interesting facts while watching our favorite shows.  It’s amazing the fun information that my sons have learned from watching their favorite programs on Netflix.  From the history of Cleopatra to learning what baking powder vs. baking soda can do to cupcakes, there is virtually no limit to all of the useful things that kids can learn while watching television at the same time.


    My sons are ages ten and thirteen so they both have shows that they like to watch on Netflix.  The older one really enjoys Fuller House because he can really relate to the teen characters.  On the other hand, the younger one loves watching The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show because he loves history and likes to learn new things about important figures of the past.  Just recently we had a whole conversation about what he learned about Cleopatra’s role in ancient Egypt and the Ptolemaic Dynasty.


    Being able to tie learning into the time that my boys spend on technology or viewing multimedia is very important for me since I am a teacher.  I love that Netflix has so many educational programs that my sons can watch which allow them to learn while having fun.  This is a far cry from the cartoons my husband and I used to watch as kids that were purely for entertainment.  It really makes me feel good about the time our boys spend on Netflix and that they are fine tuning their academic skills even while they are on vacation!


Let’s Discuss:  What are some of the fun facts that you or your kids have learned from watching Netflix programs?

    We love Netflix and I really love the show Fuller House. It’s great!

  9. I’m always looking for new shows to watch on Netflix. I won’t lie. When I find a good series, I’ll binge watch it then wonder why I was in such a rush. Hey, Fuller House was just that good! Anyway, I don’t think I’m alone! I’ll be searching for some of these on Netflix!

  10. I love that you continue their education through the summer. It’s so easy to get brain mush when not using it. Love these shows.

  14. I actually do not have Netflix–uh oh–From what you have said up there I have a feeling I would love their educational shows. It is great that kids can have fun watching Netflix and learning at the same time!

  15. I always love the idea of kids to have fun and learn at the same time. Netflix is for sure a great resource for that purpose.

  16. It’s great that your kids can learn while still having fun watching TV. I used to love learning while watching The Magic School Bus. Is that still on TV?

  17. We actually really liked Fuller House. It is one of our new favorites. We are excited for another season.

  18. My favorite show is Nurse Jackie on Netflix. So I don’t think I should share what can be learned from that show. It is sooooo good!

  19. My kids watch a lot of Netflix now. They are loving kids cooking shows and are wanting to help in the kitchen every night. Such a great thing to learn.

  20. I swear Netflix is the fruit of the gods haha, its great to keep kids entertained. At the same time it is educational which is a win win situation.

  21. Being able to tie learning to technology is double duty….and I love that.

  23. I love all the documentaries that Netflix has! I also love all the kids science shows. We do a lot of visual components as part of our homeschool. It is so much fun!

  24. I watch a lot of Netflix, too. They have some great original programs. I really thought that Fuller House was going to be better than what it was, honestly. It’s good, but it isn’t great. I love Orange Is The New Black. That’s my favorite Netflix show.

  25. I still don’t and haven’t tried netflix. Each time I see someone post about it I tell myself I need to do it!

  26. Although I dont have kids, I love your tips. I think its so cute that Full House came back! That was a BIG hit for everyone… and loved seeing Uncle Jessie again!

  29. One of the best shows I watch with my husband has been Making A Murderer. Looking forward to Season 2! I also stream Little Einsteins for my baby on my iPad so he could watch it in his room while me and daddy have grown up time in the living room.

  30. I recently participated in a Netflix binge weekend and it was so relaxing! Orange is the New Black is one of my favorite shows and while I don’t think we learned much from it, it was definitely entertaining.
