  1. My head is spinning! I'm very new to homeschooling with young dc (ds4 & dd 16 mo). We're part of a preschool co-op now that's working great, but I'm a planner & like to look ahead. I'm comparing MFW, TOG, SCM, Biblioplan, & TQ. I'm not sure TOG is really for us, but I keep reading a couple of great things about it that I'm not specifically seeing about other programs. 1. Parents are learning along with their dc. I had no idea that this was a goal for our family until after I'd made the decision to hs. 2. The teacher's notes give direction & lead to great discussions. I guess I'm hoping somebody will have insight into these other programs, especially with regard to the family learning (including mom). I thought I had settled on MFW, but as I get a tiny bit more experience, I'm wondering if I'll want more flexibility. TIA!
  2. So, here's my next set of questions:D We are finishing up 1850-MOD using MFW. Technically, we should cycle around and do ECC, Ancient History and then Rome to Reformation. But, then she's off going into 9th grade, and I wouldn't want to go into Ancient History again. I can't believe I'm doing this when MFW has worked so well for us, but I'm thinking about using Sonlight's Core 5, and then doing Core 6 and 7 (two years of world history) to kind of "speed through" before high school. I have thought about skipping ECC and doing MFW CTG, RTR, and EX-1850, but we did EX-1850 last year and I just think she'd be bored. Also, I have my other dd who is 3 years younger than her to think of, and UGH!!!! Decisions decisions!!! And, on top of all that, my oldest is STILL sick of Ancient History. We're talking she wants to skip a year of history if the only thing we study is Ancient history. So, here are the different options I'm looking at: Option 1: MFW ECC (6th/3rd), CTG(7th/4th), RTR(8th/5th), and then high school for my oldest (maybe MFW, maybe someone else) starting over with the Ancients, while my youngest cycles through the rest of MFW. Option 2: MFW ECC (6th/3rd), and then Omnibus for my oldest through High School, while my youngest cycles through MFW. Then, they'd at least be in the same time period for several years. Option 3: Oldest: Sonlight Core 5 (6th), Core 6 (7th), Core 7 (8th) Youngest: MFW even though it will probably kill me money wise. Option 4: Something I haven't thought of that you will tell me and magically solve all my problems!:D Oh, and here's a separate thread that lists my questions about Core 5: http://www.welltrainedmind.com/forums/showthread.php?t=244122 Thanks for your help! Dorinda
  3. Hello! I am interested in using this next year for my 13 and 12 yoc. I really haven't seen much review/comments on it and was wondering if anyone could tell me what they liked or didn't about it. I will also have an 8 turning 9yo joining in as well. I realize some of it wouldn't be appropriate for his age, so will use with discretion. I don't know if its just that not many have used it, or if it just is too new to have much discussion. Also, we didn't use year 4 MFW to lead up to -but another American history program. Will not having done that year's state/president sheets be a big problem if we just jump in? Thank you for any advice or recommendations!!
  4. I am doing ECC with an 8 yr old and a 10 yr old. We are not learning much from Properties of Ecosystems because it is so far above their heads. The vocabulary words are very difficult and after reading the selections for the day, my children cannot narrate much at all. I will continue with what we have this year, but are all of the other years of science in MFW just like this? I had planned on going through the cycle...
  5. I have been looking at this more and more and I am really starting to love this to the point I am considering it. I use alot of it already, and I have some other books that go along with it. So I am wondering how people like this as a whole. As of right now I am planning on using their history for my now 7th grader when she is in high school. Any thoughts on this? This would be weird for me because I am in no way a boxed curriculum person- although I guess this is a bit different. Thoughts? Thanks
  6. My dd will be coming up to high school in a year or so. (we homeschool year round) I have a friend who basically did nothing different for high school for her kids, not PSAT, SAT, or ACT. No writing of papers longer then a page, no algebra 2, nothing strenous. That was a little too lite of highschool for me. I don't really want to go that road, but my dd is not super motivated nor is she super academically inclined. More of a creative bent with piano and writing. I am trying to decide on a course of high school for her. We are currently using sonlight but I worry about rigor of core 300 and 400. She can't always "read between the lines" with some books and find the deeper meanings. I am also looking at MFW for high school which might be a little less overwhelming. The goal here is success and to do well. I always find it to walk the fine line of challenging without overwhelming and defeat. I would rather she do well with something a little less rigorous and be defeated with something just too hard for her. Her goal is to attend a Christian college but she isn't sure for what ...yet. Any ideas, any advice, any BTDT? Anyone with an average child academically?
  7. I am currently using TOG Year 1 with my DC(see ages in my signature). We love it. My only problem is that I am not sure that I can see myself using the program as it is intended for high school. I am feeling like we are learning lots this year, but I find that I am really only using TOG as a book list and I tend to do maps and notebook pages with the kids, with a few projects thrown in here and there. It feels like a really expensive book list. I can see the benefits paying off if I was to do the cycle again in high school(and I am being educated now), but I don't think that I am leaning towards that level of rigor in my history/lit studies. My children all seem to be a little more math/science inclined. I still want the basic components of TOG, but maybe in a little lighter program. Is this MFW? I would be moving into RtoR with them next year and would continue the cycle and finish it when my oldest is in 9th Grade. My oldest would go to the 2 year high school world history program with MFW and then I would cover Canadian history in 12th Grade. I would really like to find a program and stick with it, if that is even possible. :tongue_smilie:
  8. Hi guys, Question for the experienced My Father's World (MFW) Users. Do you like it? Do you like how it uses Streams of Civilization and Story of the World 2-4? Does anyone have a schedule for using Mystery of History (MOH) as the history reader instead of SOTW or Streams of Civilization? I've also looked at the H.A. Guerber Histories and wondered about using those. Opinions very welcome :) Thanks!:bigear:
  9. I'm looking at using MFW 1st this fall, but we've read Things Outdoors and done many of the activities, both in the TM as well as in Science with Water and Science with Plants. I was thinking of using Elemental Science's Intro to Science since it seems to have a nice, but not overwhelming, variety of activities. Any thoughts?
  10. I love the multi level aspect of MFW. But I can't work out exactly how they cater to the different age levels from the samples online. Is it that they have chosen books and activities which appeal to a large age range? Or are there different student sheets for the different levels? Are they notes in the book basket list that indicate which levels each book might suit? My dc are still too young for both of them to do ECC but it looks like it would really suit them in a year or two when my younger dd is in grade 2. And it would probably suit me because it looks so easy to use ! TIA Jane ps I know about the 7th- 8th grade supplement. I am more interested in the grade 2 - grade 6 levels at this stage.
  11. Hello, We use Excellence in Writing and I am planning to get My Father's World K-8. I know that MFW recommends Writing Strands. I've used that before and don't mind it but I prefer IEW because I can incorporate it into other subjects. Has anyone else tried this already? I don't have MFW yet so I can't say for sure, but it seems like it would be a natural fit.
  12. I'm still debating. I know they incorporate some la within the program itself via summaries etc.... However, I'm not very keen on the All In One English for my 7th grader and Writing Strands did not work for him. Please share what you use alongside.
  13. Ok, I am really considering My Father's World for next year now. My children at that time will be: 10 8.5 almost 7 a young 5. I was thinking of starting with ECC but I am wondering now, can I do Adventures for all 4 of them and just make it a bit more challenging for my older 2 somehow? I would really like THEM to benefit from it as well... OR should I have them doing ECC and have my younger 2 doing Adventures? I dont really want to order 2 'level's and only have 1 child be on one of the levels. Someone said I should have my older 3 doing ECC and do MFW K w/ my child who will be a young 5 but I really want to stick w/ our K and 1st grade program (which is just to focus on the 3 Rs, we do 100 EZ lessons and VERY simple math, then move on to Learning Language Arts thru Literature and we use HWT for handwriting)... So here are my 3 ideas: 1: Do Adventures with ALL 4 of them making it more challenging for my older 2 (is that possible? They will be doing their own grade levels for math and language arts) and letting my youngest just glean what she can 2. Do ECC with the older 3 and have the youngest just do her normal K work this year 3. Do ECC with the older 2 and do Adventures w/ the younger 2 having the youngest just glean what she can (I would only do this if you think that it wont work to have all of them in Adventures)....thoughts??? Thank you!!
  14. Maybe it will all become clear to me as we get into it-- I've read this board for a few months; I've wanted to read WTM for a few years but haven't wanted to spend the $$. We've been using SL along with CLE Math, R&S English, and some other things--but don't want to use SL next year for a few reasons. Bit the bullet and bought Adventures in MFW for my K- and 2nd- grader to hopefully do together, and have seen references to it being "classical". And knowing that I need to find out what that means as we get started on that this fall. And I just ordered WTM off Amazon because I'm tired of wanting to read it but not having it in hand-- All I know is MFW looks great; I can't WAIT to get started on it. So just answer me this (and any other info you feel led to share, lol)--is MFW classical? Will reading WTM and jumping in to MFW suddenly clarify all this for me? Thanks-- Betsy
  15. Hello, What would be the advantage of the MFW Apologia General Science Lesson plans? There are several free plans out there. I've used a Donna Young schedule with my older 3 to get them going until they were on their own schedule. However, I see that my next 2 children need a written up schedule in front of them. I was just going to print my old schedule but it sounds to me from other posts that MFW has plans that are more specific. Does anyone know if the MFW schedule is more detailed than the Donna Young plans which have: Pages to read, experiments to do, or questions to answer each day Bookmarks with vocab words, checkboxes for dailywork, and space for few notes. Thanks!
  16. Hi there, I am a newish homeschooler, well we've done this for two years now, but I still feel like I am walking around in cirlcles! Anyway we have four girls ages 7, 5.5, 4, 2.5 and then a boy 10 months old. Needless to say it gets crazy around here! I am very interested in using Adventures in My Father's World, but then I also think I like Story of the World (which I see that MFW does do later) and Mystery of History. I really like that MOH outlines everything by showing God's hand in history. But then I found out that it is not a complete set yet! Which isn't so bad for the first 3 years, but aren't there 2 more volumes to go? Someone said that it would take the author 3-4 years per volume to finish! So what would we do once we are done with 1-3? So because of that I have looked at SOTW. I hated history when I was in school, but I am really excited about a "story" and I think it would make it much more grabbing (for my short attetion span as well as the kids!). So I just wondered what you all thought. Also would it be just as easy and a whole lot cheaper to do SOTW or MOH and Apologia's elelmentary sciences with my girls rather than MFW? Just wondering! Thanks! Shannon Mallory
  17. Hey ladies - After my initial survey of curriculums I had decided to use MoH 1 along with SotW as my guides. I ordered and received MoH and after looking through it I'm not comfortable with the way some ideas are presented, mostly it's the Young Earth perspective. I hadn't really ever heard this perspective and didn't understand how that would influence vital lessons on the ancient civilizations. After long discussion with my husband (and many others) I need to sell this book and am back to looking for another curriculum guide that would support my 4 year cycle (ala WTM) and teaching a 2nd grader and 5th grader at the same time. Glancing at MFW I suspect that curriculum is also using the Young Earth model. Any other ideas? I still plan to use the SotW and want to integrate bible history into our studies (especially matching the egyptian histories and old testament, etc) but need something that is a little more secular in the discussion of early civilization. Does this exist? TIA!
  18. Could you share with me why you like AO? Could you recommend how to get started in it? Could you share what has helped you in your planning for multiple children? Would you mind sharing why you prefer AO over other CM influenced curriculums such as My Father's World and Heart of Dakota (HOD)? I would especially like to hear about that last point if there are any of you out there who have used MFW or HOD (or considered it) and then decided to go with AO instead. Thanks so much for your time! Terri
