Re: Scheduling and Substance

We fully believe that homeschooling is what God wants us to do, especially considering a few of the experiences we had during the few years our kids were in public school. Our struggl...

Re: Scheduling and Substance

Julie,

You said exactly what I think my wife needs to hear. Thank you for sharing your personal details. I'm probably going to share your post with her. I hope it encourages her. I'm praying that this year will help her overcome her educational insecurity once and for all.

Re: Structuring Language Arts curriculum

Jen, Your explanation was a huge help. I haven't dug into the teacher's manual much yet. I'm glad it offers me the clarity I need. I've found the staff of MFW to be incredibly helpful both via email and over the phone. I posted my question here this time because I thought I'd get a fast answer witho...

Structuring Language Arts curriculum

Good morning, We are starting MFW this year, and it's very new for us. Last year was our first year of homeschooling, and we used ACE Paces. Besides the material being very light, our kids have not enjoyed it because there is not much interaction and the work is boring. We're hoping MFW will be much...
