Does MFW-K include worksheets?

Bostonmom, you made me laugh when you said,
Also, one more question: my son loves to do worksheets...really, really loves it. Does MFWK have a worksheet component to keep him happy (I can't believe I just said that).
My 4 yo dd has enjoyed the worksheets more than my 6 yo K ds! MFWK has a worksheet for 5 days out of every 6 day long unit. But it's only one page, some days it's one side, other days it's two sides.

Day 1 - picture cards (color and cut out).
Day 2 - handwriting practice for the letter and number of the week and sound discrimination.
Day 3 - cut and paste (phonics) and math.
Day 4 - blend ladder word dictation and reading a word list.
Day 5 - drawing page and cut and paste, which later becomes a short story page that you make into a tiny reader.

It really was enough for my K ds, but he is not the worksheet lover. I hope that helps!

WORKBOOK
pw wrote:I'm wondering if the workbook is compose of blank pages or is there activities?
The Kindy student set consists of several items:
# Teaching charts
# Game cards
# Monthly calendars
# Short vowel song cards
# 100 chart for math
# and of course the workbook. It is an essential part of the program for the phonics, reading, and most language arts. You would miss a lot of the program without.

On most days of each lesson, you only do about 1 (sometimes 2) worksheet.
For some samples, here we go...
There are about 7 types of worksheets that you rotate through for each Alphabet/Science/Character integrated themed unit. All instructions for use of the worksheets are in the yellow pages of the K teacher's manual. So, for each each you will have a worksheet from the student workbook that has a
Picture Card Page (check yellow sheets, day 1 for instruction)

Handwriting page (check yellow sheets, day 2 for instruction)
http://mfwbooks.com/nw_handwrite.html

Sounds Discrimination Page (check yellow sheets day 2 for instruction)
http://mfwbooks.com/nw_discrim.html

Math (handwriting with numbers and other-- check day 3 yellow sheets)
http://mfwbooks.com/nw_math.html

Word List (check yellow sheet day 4 for instruction)
http://mfwbooks.com/nw_wordlist.html

Drawing Page (day 5 yellow pages for instruction)
http://mfwbooks.com/nw_drawing.html

And Story Page (also day 5 in yellow pages for instructions)
http://mfwbooks.com/nw_can.html

****
The basic set up of each K day for each of the alphabet units is to do the
*Math routine
*Phonics routines (instructions are the yellow pages)
*then do the Science/Character activities from that section.

The activities for learning letters and sounds and blending are in the teacher's manual. The flashcard activities are in several categories:
some for reading
sequencing
science
memory
art
and Just for fun

One of the flashcards is a card with extra activities. The extra activities on the flashcards are more designed for "science" and logical thinking skills.

The flashcards are quite helpful for having a visual in the science lessons as well as helping to decorate school room. Good for practicing sorting alphabetically. I've used them with 2 children who were ahead of the curve in reading skills. Glad I had them. My youngest daughter enjoyed having them mixed up and sorting them again. We liked having them to have a picture to trace for our Unit "badge" each week to match the Bible lesson.

Lots of good uses for them other than just to introduce letter and sounds.

I also want to share an older thread with you about using the K program with a child who is ahead in reading/and knowing sounds.:

For the Lauri letters, I see the benefit, but I'm wondering what I have and what can I do without or get elsewhere or make on my own? Thank you so much for your help!

I didn't buy the Lauri letters when we first started K because I had a similar lower case letter set. I later found that some of the letters were not formed the same way and seemed to make things more confusing. So I ended up ordering them later anyway.

I highly recommend the Lauri letters. Just my opinion.

I’m praying that your whole family enjoys this school year.
