  1. What a nice list of homeschool tips and information! I’m trying to find several useful resources before instructing my small kid who is just 4 years old. Many thanks !

  2. This is a cool and educational List! I’m checking on those recommended links of yours. My kid is starting to go to school next year, but as early as now we are engaging her in a home school as preparation for her real school world.
