New to MFW, ok to use 1st after Abeka K

Unread post by TXGRL » Fri Nov 03, 2017 5:54 pm

We used Abeka for K because it was all I really knew about homeschooling when we jumped in, we got through it but ds & I both hated it, so I did alot of studying and ordered MFW 1st, should arrive in the next week, now I am panicking that I need to do MFW K before 1st, I don't have a specific reason for this and I am probably just paranoid, but is there anything that is truely missed by coming in at 1st instead of K or earlier?

I don't know what abeka is like, but on MFW's website there is a description of k and first and how to tell if your child is ready. I personally love both. The character training, bible, and hands on activities are great in kinder. First grade is all about the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and it is integrated into the language arts lessons. You can also download samples of both programs to help you decide.

Thanks, ds seems to be ready for 1st based on the readiness checklists. I am just worrying myself about changing curriculum, I was picturing Bible starting mid story and the 1st half was in the K curriculum or some other absurd scenario, lol. Glad to hear you loved these years!

You will be fine doing MFW 1st, after Abeka K. It will feel a lot easier, but that's fine. MFW is meant to be "gentle."
