I am a huge, HUGE, fan of using streaming media in homeschooling. Streaming media can bring so much to our children, they literally have the world at their finger tips. That’s why I am so excited to share this deal with you!
Discovery Education is the premier educational streaming media service, and from June 1 – August 31, 2015 IT’s COMPLETELY FREE through the Homeschool Buyer’s Co-op!
