MFW K is the reason I continue to homeschool

Posted: Thu Aug 10, 2006 5:20 pm I have to add my 2 cents here - MFW K is the reason I continue to homeschool my children . When I started with my daughter last year, I tried a "classical" approach which included phonics, handwriting and a little math with a practice workbook. She HATED it, and I w...

Well, you check out math books and science books from the library, right, so you could put those in there. I don't think there was anything specific about it in the K program, either, but we did it anyway, with the books we checked out from the library.

((((Lori)))), you are NOT a failure.

First things first. ((((Lori)))), you are missing your dad so much, and I wish I could be there to give you a hug in person, and maybe some cookies and something involving chocolate and a nap. The holidays are so hard when someone you love is gone, especially so recently. I am so, so sorry. Please, ...

Thank you ladies!

Thanks everyone... I feel better knowing that I'm not alone. :-) I have found some neat things online to try, some games and stuff to help her get the concepts. What's interesting is, I think my Ker gets the 1st grade math better than my 1st grader sometimes! It's funny to hear the little one tellin...

Sun Idea

We are doing Sun this week, and read in our book "Sun" by Steve Tomecek that you could put 109 Earths across the sun. So, we put 109 pennies in a line across our kitchen floor, and put one penny next to the line to show how much bigger the sun is than Earth. The kids had a great time lining up the p...

Thank you!

Thanks so much for your reply! I did think that sometimes there were a LOT of pages to complete in a week, and it makes much more sense to use the harder ones the second time around. It's probably more material to cover than I think it is. I guess it will also depend on how quickly my girlie gets th...

We're doing D-d-dinosaur this week, and I found a fun site: http://www.rain.org/~philfear/download-a-dinosaur.html There are patterns for several different kinds of dinosaurs that you can print and then cut out & make into your very own herd. We did Triceratops and Apatosaurus, our current favorites...
