Do MFW K!!!

Posted: Fri Jan 11, 2008 5:18 pm We loved MFW K and I'm looking forward to using it as each of my children's introduction to more formal schooling.

Ideas: K with a child who is reading

Math - Is it enough?

I haven't posted in awhile, but have sooo enjoyed learning more and gleaning lots from those who have used MFW for quite some time. OK...we are switching to MFW in the fall. I will have one in MFWK and wondered if anyone supplemented other math with this. I know it is an all inclusive curriculum, b...
