Re: Using more than one level

I have an 8 year old (was reading by 4 and now can read a 700 pg book in a day), a 6 year old, a 4 year old, a 3 year old, a 1.5 year old, and am due with #6 in December. I've also used MFW since preschool for the oldest (old preschool programs, K, 1st, Adv, and now ECC). I would recommend that you ...

Thinking ahead: CtG and K

I'm starting to think ahead to how I'm going to tweak things next year. In CtG I'll have a 4th grader and a 2nd grader, and in K I'll have a 5 year old, a 4 year old, and a tag along 2.5 year old (and a baby who will be about 8 months old at the beginning of the school year). Since the majority of m...

Re: First grade over two years? Large family homeschooling?

I know that this post is old-ish, but I just wanted to give a different perspective. :) I think K is so simple, it's really more a preK program than a K program. However, 1st moves WAY too fast for me! So with my oldest, he started K at 4 and flew through it, and did 1st at 5 and flew through it (bu...

Re: Scheduling and Substance

I may be echoing some of the previous responses, but as far as "scheduling," just take each day as it comes. You will have difficult days where the kids act like hooligans and you wonder why you're even doing this in the first place. Then it might be time to take a break for a couple of days. I usua...

Re: Help! I am overwhelmed!

Hello. :) My children are 8, 6, 4, 2, 1, and I'm due with #6 in January. We also are doing ECC. First, I'll remind you what you said: Your baby is 7 weeks old. That means that you're still recovering, adjusting, and trying to get a handle on things with 5 kids!! I suggest that you take things one st...

Juggling different levels

#1 is 8 and working on a 4th grade level for most of his subjects. Everything has always been quick and easy with him... He loves math, he was reading by 4, and he tested into 6th grade spelling the first year we started spelling. #2 is 6. She's artistic and creative, but I have to take deep breaths...
