Re: My now "8th grader" won't be ready for high school next

1. Science: Have you tried having her do the tests through Virtual Homeschool Group, too? They're multiple choice, and there is prep through the online quizzes.

Re: LOVING CtG!

I feel compelled to note this for people who look into MFW for the future, as it's the type of thing I was looking for when I was researching curriculum. A lot of people love ECC, but a lot of people don't, and don't continue MFW as a result, which is a shame. We trudged through ECC, and I freely a...

Schedule - Daily, Weekly, or other rules/consequences

Checking high school work We've had one graduate and now the next one is in 9th grade. I'm not looking for advice on what we should do...just "polling" on what you do and wondering what works best for you.

We are enjoying this, too. The first week was way more time consuming than the second...which is good. So, don't worry about subsequent weeks taking a lot of prep.

Re: My 16yo daughter wants to change curriculum from MFW to.

Hello. I was wondering if your daughter had a chance to see the BJU books? I really like the Notgrass books too and was sad at the thought of changing until I looked through the BJU books at a convention. They are really nice. The whole US History package has a different level of high school to it....
