MFW lesson plans for Singapore Math

Hi! I see MFW includes lesson plans for Singapore math and I was wondering if there was a sample available? If not could someone describe them for me? Is there a lesson for each topic? I have the home educators guides for levels 2 and 3, but I wanted to see how these compare. Also I have a son who ...

Re: What dictionary do you like?

I was going to post a question about the dictionary-I get up and look at the board and here is my answer already--without me having to ask. Thanks !! We like the 1828 version but it is not working with English from the roots up since words like "dinosaur" were not coined yet. By the way, we are on w...

I have one s(20) not living at home and my d(8) doing CTG this year. My kids are also basically "only" children. My s was in PS until his Jr year of HS. He had no friends to play with even though there were kids in the neighborhood. Schedules and day care and all. I fretted for many years over his n...

Singapore - *What do you love about it? Descriptions

I love MFW. I do feel like I can trust their recommendations as we are so pleased with first grade. Al...

Just a note about how we handle memorizing--I have my daughter look at the poem and read a line at a time out loud to me to help me memorize it. She has it memorized long before I do. :)

WELCOME

Hi Sherron, Just wanted to add some encouragement. If God is leading you, He will bless your obedience. This curiculum would be good for you to use your first year of "learning with your children" instead of being "task master." Part of the homeschooling experience is bonding together as a family. E...
