Re: High school US history to 1877

Thanks Julie! We have used WHL this year, never using AHL, and although I had to tweak some of the literature readings, having a schedule all planned out for me was well worth it for both my daughter and me. I am still not sure if we are going to use US1 next year or if I am going to try to piece my...

Re: Another MFW WHL question... how long...

Thanks so much for your input! I had my daughter keep track of exactly how much time she is taking for each subject. I was blown away at how much time she was taking. For example, today in Biology she spent an hour and 40 minutes and she uses a 5-day schedule (not the MFW Apologia schedule). I know ...

Another MFW WHL question... how long...

Does it take for your child to complete the assignments in WHL each day? My daughter in 10th is using WHL, as well as Lifepac Health, Lifepac Spanish 1, MUS Geometry/ MUS Algebra ( she spends an hour and a half total on her maths), and Apologia Biology. She also speed walks for PE once a day for abo...

Dawn, my dd did not want to check her Notgrass, but like you said I explained to her that it would be more beneficial to her to check her own work in history because *she* was the one taking the course and if she checked her own questions it would help her in the long run to remember what she would ...

That makes sense. Dd was balking at having to check her own work. Not that she does not have the time , she just does not want to do it. But, these last days she has been buckling down and doing it. This year has been a step up in independence and workload but she seems to be stepping up to the task...

Re: CTG/ECC for grandkids

So glad everything is going so well for you with your 3 boys. We will start CTG and MFW K next week.

Excited that you get to do ECC with your grandchildren, too. My SIL is using my ECC stuff this year with her kids and her kids seem to really enjoy it.

What an awesome grandma you are!!!

My finger hovered over the enter button for a whil...

Of course we have only read just a fraction of the ones you li...

Re: Rosetta stone? Is it on sale or is this their new price

Well, the verdict is in. After showing my children both programs, and doing the demos of each, the kids and I really like RS better. I had not viewed their demo until just about an hour ago and was really impressed. I think it will keep my kids' attention much more than VL and I also think at this m...

Re: Rosetta stone? Is it on sale or is this their new price

Thanks Crystal!! Okay, I am in a dilemma today because I'm on the fence between buying RS using MFW's lesson plans or buying Visual Link Spanish whose sale ends today. I have not heard hardly anything negative about VL, but have heard mixed reviews about RS. I like the idea of RS because of the MFW'...
