Re: K at a faster pace along with Adventures...help...

My favorite part of the white pages was the character traits that go with each letter, the Bible verses that we read, and the read-aloud books. I am sure though that favorites all vary between each of us. :-) I really want to do the character traits and Bible verses with her. You can never have too...

Re: K at a faster pace along with Adventures...help...

Thanks. I did find that spot in the TM and it is still on page 12. :) I'm finally starting to get the idea on how to make this work. I think it will be good for her to do the math as well. I just didn't want her to be overwhelmed by more Math, but as I have been looking at the suggestions in the TM ...

Re: K at a faster pace along with Adventures...help...

Hi Carin thanks for your response. She is 6 and used the Sonlight K LA last year. She is struggling to remember letter sounds and blending hasn't totally clicked for her yet and her letter formation needs work. I decided to do K at a faster pace for the beginning of her 1st grade year instead of jum...

Re: Struggling reader...should I use K or 1st?

Thanks for the replies. I feel better about her starting with MFW K this year and giving her a little more time to get it. It helps to have others agree with you. Then I don't have to second guess myself. :) Luckily I just sold some curriculum on ebay so I'll have the extra money I need to buy the K...

Re: Knowing that you will be biased toward MFW...

If you have seen both MFW book basket list and the resources they list to further the study of WP in their teacher's guides, could you give me a comparison. Obviously after using ECC and part of Adventures I know what the book basket lists are like for MFW, but having not seen WP I have no idea of ...

Re: Knowing that you will be biased toward MFW...

I haven't used CTG or American story, but I have used MFW 1st and WinterPromise Hideaways in History. We started with WP this year. The TM wasn't very helpful just basically a grid and a few website ideas not much in the way of helpful notes. Hideaways was suppose to be for K and 1st but it was way ...

Re: Question about Adventures

Thank you for your replies. It is nice to hear how others have done things. I did get the Adventures student sheets for her and I think she will enjoy the state sheets because she loves to color. She was very excited about the flag stickers too. I think I'll have to play it by ear with her. I never ...
