Homeschoolers and teachers use YouTube to supplement lessons because it’s a treasure trove of amazing content. But it’s a lot of work to sift through the not-so-treasury channels. Which is why I’ve created this post — here are some wonderful gems for you, excellent YouTube channels for language arts, foreign language and art.
