How does MFW suggest using EFTRU?

Can you tell me how MFW suggests using EFTRU. (We're starting CTG in the fall) I think I'm understanding that the children make their own flash cards...? Or did anyone get the already made flash cards and have the kiddos make their vocab words into a notebook. Posted: Sat Jun 07, 2008 5:19 pm Hi Ly...

Posted: Wed May 28, 2008 9:59 pm Hi Daphne, We just finished with Apologia General Science. It does mention that all life forms reproduce, but it doesn't get into any of the details of human reproduction. The Wonderful Way book probably is the what you'd want to read if you want to approach this su...

Posted: Sat Oct 28, 2006 8:04 pm Paula, This is our first year using MFW and we started with CTG for my 11yo ds. He attended p.s. up through last year. I was concerned if he would like CTG because his favorite subjects are American History and Politics. He eat, sleeps, and breathes these subjects. ...

We also had the privilege of seeing a Seder done at our church by a Christian-Jew. He lives in Israel and occasionally comes over to give us updates on what's happening over there as it pertains to bible prophecy.

Lentil soup

Pyramid

Posted: Tue Oct 03, 2006 4:50 pm We decided to build our pyramid out of Legos since my ds likes them so much. After we finished, I ran upstairs to take care of some things. Eventually he called me down to show me his additions to the pyramid. He had added a valley temple, a pathway leading to the p...

Thank you ladies for your replies. I gives me some things to consider. Lucy -I meant he's not retaining the information. I don't want it to be a case of memorizing facts, only to forget them by the next module (Although I did cut him some slack with all the scientists). I want him to know the scient...

We are starting week 9 of CTG on Monday. My ds LOVES it! He's especially excited that we are starting the story of Joseph this week. Last year he and I performed in a community theater production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." By having done this, he's familiar with the whole sto...

I haven't used Adventures, so I don't know what books are recommended for the book basket. I do know there are some good cookbooks available for kids that combine cooking with history, geography, science, and math. You could do a search under "Cooking for Kids" or "Curriculum Cookbooks for Kids." HTH

Thanks Julie! You've been a great help! Some nice ideas. I know what you mean about ds needing "loud" time. Mine loves for his presence to be known.
