Re: switching curriculums

I recently switched from Horizons K to MFW K mostly because I found Horizons to be a drag as my ds who is just 5 wasn't enjoying it. Horizons is great if your child is a "work booker" and it is considered an advanced intense program. MFW from what I've seen and heard delivers the same results in a m...

Re: Reading/Vocabulary Programs?
