Hello Homeschoolers! I'm Fran Pado and I'm so excited to be part of the Different Directions community. This year I'll lead three fantastic classes that will be rigorous as well as fun. In Phonics, Fantasy, and Fun (6-8 yrs.) your child will move, create, and sing their way through the beginning stages of reading. Books Around the World ( 11-13 yrs.) is a survey of current novels in translation with middle grade protagonists. And in Bookmaking (6-11yrs.) we'll make all sorts of books, get messy, write our own stories, and create a library.
Come join me! I've taught reading/writing/executive functioning for 10 years. I was a lead teacher at the RAD School, a homeschool cooperative in Brooklyn, NY. Hope to see you this Fall!
