  1. If I had to choose between the two, I would use A Beka. We used MFW K for preschool, and many components of MFW 1st grade for K.
  2. We love Artistic Pursuits here! Using the K-3 and Middle School levels. I find the cost very reasonable compared with taking outside art classes. We have tried several others and AP is definitely the winner! :)
  3. Mosdos - minus the TM - the text has plenty of info. on its own. IMO, the TM is geared too much to the classroom.
  4. We use these: http://www.carsondellosa.com type in search box: Exploring North America Resource Book There is one workbook for each continent. I purchased the download for each one, and just print out the pages as we need them. I have scheduled all of the workbooks over two years.
  5. Artistic Pursuits has been a huge hit here! We tried Atelier and it was just way too expensive. My kids liked it, but not as much as they have enjoyed AP.
  6. I now have the guides for AHL and the Notgrass Exploring World History texts. I have reviewed the guides and read through much of Notgrass and really love it! After looking through the comp./lit. MFW has to offer, I'm hoping dd will go with the complete program. I am very pleased with the writing instruction. I plan to order the remainder of the AHL program when the S&H rates drop back down in Sept. - lol. :)
  7. Thank you! This is what I need to hear. My dd is so hit or miss with lit. choices. Ideally, I would like to use the lit. w/ MFW. Maybe she will surprise me and enjoy them as well! I have ordered the guides which I should be receiving any day now. If the guides look good, I will order the rest of the package. :)
  8. Would it be worth doing MFW for just Bible and History? I know we would not do the writing portion, we already have that set. I'm not sure if dd would go for the lit. choices, so we may end up doing something else for lit. I like the idea of stretching world history out over 2 yrs, but wonder if it would be worth the cost if we did just Bible and History.
  9. I just came across this last night and it looks interesting. Has anyone used Epi Kardia? So far I have ruled out TOG d/t cost and have been taking a serious look at MFW (still a little more than I would like to spend). Epi Kardia looks great - less expensive and more of a lit. based study, which is what I'm really looking for.
  10. Which would you choose for American History, BJU or Notgrass? Why?
