Hi Homeschoolers,

Aaron did an English lesson with me a couple of days ago called ‘Around the world’ which is an extract from Jules Verne’s novel ‘Around the World in Eighty days’.
We had an opportunity to do some geography in locating San Francisco, New York, the Rocky Mountains, etc. There was mention of winding roads, suspension bridges and canyons so we checked the net for pics. There was mention of Red Indians attacking the train and a gunfight with revolvers and rifles so I downloaded info on these for Aaron to read.
I share this with you to illustrate how homeschooling is far better than any class in school could ever be. Even if smart boards are introduced, will every student be guaranteed individual attention?
I also did an EVS lesson with both the boys on floating objects which Kirsten videotaped. They had fun learning whilst doing; Charis and Daniel watched and learned too!
What is lacking right now is a lab of sorts. Let’s hope we can cross that bridge when we come to it. For now, the kitchen will have to do.
For Goa Can Homeschool,
Auriel
