Re: Using more than one level

I agree with gratitude that adding America the Beautiful would be WAY too much. I would suggest adding the book The American Story, it is fabulous; and all of your children would enjoy it. The American Story adds 100 stories of American History in short readalouds, this would enhance the days that f...

Re: Using MFW K for an older child with ASD?

I think that sounds like a great idea, you can always use the phonics as spelling practice as well. The Reading Lesson is a great primer to use with MFW 1st reader as it is phonics focused, but does include "KEY WORDS" and works well with slow and steady children. It could be followed up with MFW 1s...

Re: Using more than one level

I would like to throw out another idea, maybe you could just do Adventures with all of them as you would still have time for you oldest to go through the whole cycle.

Hi everyone, I used Adventures with my oldest and few sweet extra students that I homeschooled back several years ago (he was 6 then and he just turned 14-lol). I loved that year immensely, so I decided to do it with my "middles" this year as there ages fit it perfectly (6 year old girl who reads an...
