Re: Exploring American History in Adventures

I just recieved my Adventures last week! I read through the new book, and it seems PERFECT for this age group! The length of the readings and topics are interesting; I read it entirely to get ready for this year! I LOVE MFW! THANK YOU FOR GREAT SERVICE AND PRODUCTS!!!

coloring pages for 1st grade notebook!

I just thought I would share what I do with my little ones. I have 2 little boys doing first together, one is mine and one my friends little boy. My friends little boy loves to draw, but my little boy does not, so I decided to print off pages for my son to color from calvary chapel. I let him color,...

Re: math with 1st graders who will have completed mfw 1st in k

Thank you RB for your response. I think I have read books by her, but it has been a few years. I just thought that if the boys had taught themselves so much already, with a little bit of direction and review of addition facts/subtraction facts and through games and books they could continue to grow ...

I am using MFW 1st grade this year, and we are loving it! The bible and phonics are integrated which allows more time for play; although my little one thinks school is "play". The math is mainly hands-on which is wonderful for this age; mine loves them and is learning! Crystal answered the technical...

I also like the looks of Drawn into the Heart of Reading. I am considering purchasing this year for my very advanced soon to be 1st grader, who has been reading since he was 2. I like that all genres get looked at, and that it adds a simple way for me to evaluate his understanding of a few of the bo...

Both are great, but another vote for 1st!

I have to admit that I went through K much quicker than intended; so alot of extra science got left out. I wanted to get through it before the new little one was born. I ended up homeschooling another little boy with my son, and decided MFW first was a great choice, and am so glad I did! We are all ...

Re: Help me discuss the benefits of MFW math

Thank you 4 truth, I really enjoyed reading information off of the site you listed. Isn't it amazing that up until modern times people let children be children and taught all they needed to know in a shorter time frame later. My desire is for my children to understand and love the Bible, to have goo...
