I finished reading parts of a gigantic homeschooling book by Mary Pride called 'The Big Book of Home Learning" Vol 1. It was a tedious job but i got some good ideas and an understanding of how learning takes place. Did photocpoying of the methods I want to use. In Goa, we cannot got the MAerican way, I realize, but some methods can be applied. I for one would like to teach the kids phonics and our pioneer family has a wonderful library for homeschoolers. Thanks, Velly and Anna, for creating this facility and making our work a whole lot easier. For those interested in homeschooling, call Vally at 9326128259. They live at Sucorro, Porvorim, North Goa.
