CTG's week is set up as 4 regular days and 1 light and independent day (aka light and independent Friday). Most of those light and independent Fridays will have some Bible time (you could just have it in evening as family reading), a quick "test" time of the Greek root word vocabulary that you were learning that week. That is quick time. and then optional math/individual reading time. That light day is not a full schedule at all.dascott wrote:I am planning to use MFW for the first time next year. I have only been homeschooling one year. I am thinking about doing school Monday thru Thurs. and taking Friday off. My husband is a minister and works a lot of long hours. He is off on Fridays and I thought this would give us some much needed family time. We also do a co-op on Thursday for most of the day, so we would actually be doing MFW 3 days each week.
I will be using CTG with a ds-7th grade and dd-4th grade. One of my main concerns is the time between lessons.
We would start the school year earlier and go later in the the summer to get the required days in. I had also considered year round school which several schools in this area do, that would give us more time off through out the year. The problem with this is the co-op isn't on year round schedule.
My question is, would this schedule work for MFW? I just wasn't sure if this would cause any problems with the flow of the work. If anyone has any input, I would love to hear from you. I have already used this message board several times and have received some wonderful answers. Thanks!
So, doing 4 of the full days into 3 .... hmmm.... I don't know how/if they would work. I haven't tried it.
There are 34 weeks scheduled in CTG.
