If you live in SC, send me a message and I'll direct you to the place to register for free access. We'...

What are you using for reading for Grade 2/Adventures?

Are you using a specific reading program, or? Thanks for sharing. We're using the Pathway Readers...not the whole program just the readers. My kids love them and they are perfect for their reading level. I'm interested in the R & S Pathway readers but cannot seem to find a list of just the book...

Re: Doing both MFWK & MFW 1?

I'm currently doing K and 1st. My K'er is sitting in with big sister for the 1st grade Bible, science, activity and read aloud. He's doing the worksheets from K as well as the math.

Right now we're reading Anne of Green Gables and will be reading the Adventures of Tom Sawyer after that. THey are abridged versions but stay true to the classics and can...

Question about time of year to start K curr.

I am considering starting MFW Kindergarten curriculum next January with my son, but I was just wondering if any of the units are dependent on being done at a certain time of year. Is it going to throw things off if we start in the middle of the year instead of the beginning? We started K last March...

Re: What do you do the rest of the day?

Great question!!! I have 4 children- K, 4.5, 3.5, and 3.5 so right now we're just doing "school" with my K student. We've recently started doing a chore system that has been so helpful in teaching the kids responsibility but also occupying their time. We do chores right after breakfast and...

What to do if K'er finishes K early ??

I am not looking forward to ending our A-Z adventures and neither is my dd. We have enjoyed it so much. She has even been wanting to pick out her own units to study. If we stayed on schedule my dd would be finished with K by the end of January. I think we are going to take a break from the regular ...
