We have been lax this summer with doing school work.  I’ve read about the Summer Brain Drain and in the past have tried to keep my daughter reading and doing math.  Something about this summer though, it’s been a lazy, relaxed, “chill” kind of vibe.  Now that school is starting in just over two weeks (yikes!), I’m regretting that.  Time to get back in the swing of spelling, reading and math!

Rosie love, love, loves Netflix.  So I’m going to capitalize on that by having her watch some shows Netflix has recommended for a Brain Power Boost!

Another show we love that combines educational content with entertainment is “Wild Kratts”.  We were able to free up quite a bit of space on our DVR when instead of recording Wild Kratts shows, we can access them anytime on Netflix!

Did you know Netflix has original series?  Their most watched is “Orange is the New Black”.  Be sure to enter my giveaway of the #1 New York Times Bestselling book that inspired that series.
