  1. I'm looking for American History that is like Mistery of History and/or Story of the World. The main thing I am looking for is the CDs and activity workbook on CD as well. Thank you for your input! I have a 4yr old, 6 yr old, 8yr old, and almost 11 yr old. And we have not done American History! 🤦ðŸ»â€â™€ï¸ Thanks, K
  2. Has anyone done MOH with olders (12 & 14) AND SOTW with a younger (10) at the same time. I DON'T want to rearrange chapters. I don't want to use an outside lesson plan that combines. They always rearrange chapters. I want open and go. I really considered BP, but from the past, planners like that never get done. I start with the planners and their pages, and then always want to add the pages that go with the MOH or SOTW because they look great, too! Then I can't decide, I get overwhelmed, and none get done. BUT, if I follow SOTW AND MOH guides, keeping the levels separated, will it totally confuse me? I had asked about doing everyone together with one of these 2 a few years ago, but we ended up doing something all together different. This year we did our own 'explorers' study and then studied Africa and it's geography. I really want a better plan for next year and follow through with the plan. Pam
  3. I've done some searching, but really can't find a whole lot re: History Revealed by Diana Waring (especially in the more recent months). For those of you who've used it, I'd love any general thoughts you can share, either positive or negative. I'm considering it for the RRR level. So far, I like that it seems quite flexible. We don't do all that well if a curriculum is laid out with specific plans for each day - we like to pursue interests within a specific time period. If you could also compare it with other history curriculum you've used (MOH, SOTW, Beautiful Feet, Biblioplan, etc.), that would be awesome!
  4. For volume 1, has anyone added in a separate geography curriculum? Maybe along the lines of a cultural study to enhance the lessons? We've done MOH in the past so I have an understanding of their integrated geography and it's not quite what I want this time around. My dd is very fascinated by the differences in world cultures, and since we will be starting the MOH cycle again this year, I was wondering if anyone ever added geography successfully. Not just a workbook or notebooking type extra, but a full geography curriculum like Galloping the Globe or COAH Expedition Earth, for late elementary possibly early junior high level (depending on difficulty). Thanks for any advice :)
  5. Has anyone ever memorized the lesson titles of a MOH volume as their timeline? I am debating between MOH1 and VP History Timeline cards for Ancient History this year. MOH lesson titles look similar to VP timeline cards. What do you think? Pam
  6. I could use a set of "experienced" eyes to look at my plans for 9th grade English and help me make a decision. Its our first year, I'm still learning and I am not sure if I'm doing this right. I'll give a little background on how I got to this current plan: I originally had planned for her to take English Honors thru FLVS. I liked the idea of her having a teacher to answer to, not me =) BUT... After looking at their syllabus I realized it was going to be WAY too much reading for her on top of Ancient History readings. She is interested in studying Ancient History so we are going to have her do MOH vol1 and possibly vol 2 with a more in depth study on Egypt and Greek Mythology. She has expressed interest in workbook type curriculum's also, SOOOO I am thinking of getting CLE's English 1. (I bought CLE LA 400 for my 4th grader and she peeked through and is pretty happy with it.) CLE English is just 1/2 credit (grammar, essay & speech). They recommend taking their Literature units for the other 1/2 credit but its not mandatory and I'm not interested. The other 1/2 credit for English is listed as 10th grade. I also am VERY interested in getting her Ancient Literature Supplements with Grammar & Composition by MFW, it looks like a perfect fit with MOH. And they said it can stand alone as it is their spine for the English part of MFW. So looking at the scope & sequence of both above choices I have a dilemma, I have no idea how much is too much or if its not enough. If anyone has viewed the above curriculums: should I get CLE English 1, 9th and 10 grade AND the Ancient Lit supplement? Or should I have her just do CLE English 1 9th grade only along with the Ancient Lit supplement? Or is the Ancient Lit supplement enough on its own? Advice would be very much appreciated, I'm stumped on this one!!
  7. For you Mystery of History lovers. . .What do you use when you are finished with the 3rd volume, since the 4th volume is unavailable at this time????? My 5th grader will start the 3rd year of the history cycle this coming school year. (I've chosen to keep her on the same track as her sister who is beginning 3rd grade. We just started homeschooling 2 years ago.) Anyway, I really appreciate MOH's approach, but I'm not sure I want to begin with it for my 5th grader if I can't continue on with it for the next year. Also, how well does MOH lend itself to the outlining process that the WTM describes for the logic stage??? Thanks!
  8. Hello, I have SOTW and MOH for Ancients and wanted to use them both. Biblioplan (upper middle grades 6-8) includes both of these for spines and I like the Christian approach. The cost for the set is more than I was planning on. My ds wouldn't like the coloring book and we have a timeline that could be used. My question for those of you who have used Biblioplan is which books are the most important if you purchased them separately ? Family Guide Companion Discussion guide Cool History Cool History Classic? Hands-on Maps This is for one student, my youngest. Thanks for your help.
  9. A little background DS is an only child and is now 10 years old DS was in 3rd grade public school last year DS was in GT class and bored out of his mind DS is very social, straight A's, never had a problem in public school Teachers LOVED him Our area schools are not good schools I am not against public schools, just the ones we have around here. I started homeschooling in Jan 2012 when he was in 3rd grade We used traditional method (no intergration at all) He loves to math, science, and reading I discoverd Classical Method and loved it I found TOG and fell in love Started TOG in Feb of 2012 Here is where my OCD comes in Since I started TOG in Feb the only way to finish before Fall was homeschool through the summer....so we did. We homeschooled ALL subjects ALL summer It is hard for me to pick and choose. If it suggest something I am going to TRY to have my DS do it. Total burn out by August 2012 so we put DS in 4th grade in Public School They called a meeting with me about skipping 5th grade. This would have DS going from 4th to 6th grade. NO!!! Pulled DS out again in FEB 2013 Put DS in a Co-op like Classical Conversations but uses a lot of Tapestry. (They write their own curriculum) Very liberal arts feel. Heavy writing!!! Ds wrote 5 papers in one week. Lots of reading which he loved. Math and Science was put on backburner. Also a pick and choose curriculum which is hard for me. I want him to do it ALL!!! There suggested schedule has us homeschooling for 8 hours, and science & math as an elective and last on the schedule. Ahhh!!! Too many choices We have found out about a science, math and technology school in our area. It is through the public school system but has a very small population (around 60 students) and it's own campus. It offers 9th - 12th grades. DS would have to apply in the 8th grade and they do accept homeschoolers. We want to homeschool him till then. I do not want my child to skip a grade in school. I love the classical method but I am really wondering if it is just not a fit for us. I cannot handle a buffet style curriculum because I want him to do it all. I have also looked at several curriculums with schedules. I do better with a daily schedule. I am a planner and the words "just relax" do not fit in my vocabulary. That is just the way I am wired. I very much have our homeschool set up like school, and classical just does not seem to fit that. The things I love about classical Chronological History Lots of great literature intergrated into what DS is learning Things I DO NOT love about classical Days are too long. DH gets home at 4:30 and we are still homeschooling after starting at 7:30. The planning myself. I cannot pick and choose. I need a daily schedule. Reading several books at one time ( I don't get this!!!) Why read 2-3 chapters a day from 4-5 different books? I have looked into MFW, SL, MOH (W/Illuminations Schedule), SOTW, and for some reason keep going back to TOG!!! It is kind of like the perfect shoe that is 2 sizes too small. I think it is perfect but it won't fit on my foot....Ugh!!! My husband says to do Abeka and be done with it. That way DS can be a child too. It has the daily schedule of what to do and when, so me and my OCD would not go crazy and start overworking him, but I really love chronological history and heavy literature. However when we were using a traditional method we were finishing right after lunch and were more relaxed. I also got the "I am done for the day feeling" that I need so very much. What do I do? I am scared that I am going to stress myself out to no end and just put him in public school and be done with it. I also need to have him in a co-op environment because he is an only child. There is one close to me but they are more traditional......Teaching Textbooks, Apologia Science, BJP History, etc. I also do not mind Christian curriculum because we are Christian but MOH seems to be overly Christian for us. Key Points I need a daily schedule Heavy literature Chronological History that does start with creation but does not spend 2 years in the bible. I would like to finish school around 1-2ish. I am not comfortable with a relaxed, choose what you want to do curriculum. I will homeschool him for 4 years prior to the academy he wants to go to. Signed......STRESSED OUT MAMA!!! :eek:
  10. I was pretty sure I saw a schedule here that combined MOH 3 and AAH. Sound familiar to anyone?
  11. Could someone be so kind as to point me to one of the old threads which discussed schedules for using SOTW 1 and MOH 1 for the same year? I've tried searching but am not finding anything -- so frustrating as I know this has been mentioned before. Thanks in advance for any help!
  12. Need help deciding what to do for my 9th grader this year. I am torn between doing MOH as is because it has the mapping and notebooking and extra literature. But so does Biblioplan. I have heard that Biblioplan uses MOH but skips around with it. Does it actually use the entire book or just bits and pieces? I also like the emphasis on church history and missionary biographies that Biblioplan has. I just don't know what to do.I have looked at Biblioplans 3-week samples and liked what I saw. However I thought the Companion looked like it was written in more of a piecemeal fashion with factual information unlike MOH which is written in more of a story format, which I like. I have pros and cons for both options. Any help out there from those of you who have used either of these options? thanks :)
  13. In case anyone is on the fence about MOH for High School, don't be. It is definitely a HS course. I just finished mapping out the first semester of MOH vol. 1. It is not a light curriculum for HS if you move at a fast pace (18 weeks of work in 9 weeks)and do most of the older student work. He is going to make flash cards of all main people, do rabbit trails with an investigative flare on Stone Henge, mound builders, and Atlantis, timeline work, mapping, creating charts and keeping them, writing mini reports and reading Gilgamesh, Iliad, and Odyssey. He will be using the Kingfisher Encyclopedia along with this to cover things MOH does not discuss. Best of all, this will cost me nothing $15 for the whole course..The price I got MOH for used and had sitting on my shelf for many years. This, the computer, and several shelves of Ancient History books we never got to use will make up this curriculum. I can definitely see me using all 4 volumes for HS, taking Vol. 1 and 2 in half the time, adding in more US History with Vol. 4 and some civics/economics using Paces. Sigh...I just love it when a plan comes together.
  14. My question is two-fold, I guess. I am doing MFW ECC and am not completely loving it. I don't know if it is because I'm not good at marking off boxes on a chart and I don't like skipping around from book to book each day. :confused: I've ended up putting all of geography work two days a week and two days a week with science, instead of spreading it out. So here's the question. I already have MFW CtG purchased for next year. I've always been excited about it. Is it going to be different than ECC? Better? I've heard so much about the Bible integration and how it all fits together so well. But I just can't stand the idea of Streams of Civilization--having to read it ahead of time and summarize it for my kids who will be 5th and 2nd. I'm doing that this year with Properties of Ecosystems, and frankly, it's not getting done. My kids and I groan when we get it out.:tongue_smilie: Ever since I started considering MFW I've thought of using Mystery of History instead of Streams of Civilization and SOTW. I've asked questions on the MFW forum and am convinced that the SOTW choice for the other years is a good one, but I'm still not convinced about Streams. :001_huh: Please tell me why Streams is a good choice, or if I should try go with my gut and try to fit MOH into the schedule. (Has someone already done that?) Or should I just give up on MFW as something that doesn't fit with my teaching style and go with MOH, which has always drawn me, too. Any advice will be great, I'll take it all into consideration. Thanks for listening!
  15. If you've used the MOH Folderbooks, do you care to tell me about them? They look like a good supplement to review what ds is learning. I'm going to be using Biblioplan, so we won't be following MOH exactly, but will use many of the lessons. Did anyone not put them in folders but store them in another manner such as a notebook? Thanks!
  16. We just finished 4 years of SOTW for my boys who will be 5th, 4th, 2nd next year. I'd like to try Biblioplan for the next 4 years, but we don't want to use SOTW as the spine because we've already used it by itself. Has anyone used MOH as the spine for Biblioplan? Was it hard to adapt since it looks like Biblioplan is more centered around SOTW?:001_smile:
  17. I tried to do a search but it wasn't working. We used Mystery of History 1 this year for my first grader and we all loved it! I have heard that MOH 2 was a little more intense and was looking for advice. If my DS did fine with year one should we go on to year 2? If not, what should we use instead? Thanks!
  18. I want to try something different for history next year. We have done Winter Promise and SOTW in the past. I am looking for more of an all in one curriculum...maybe everything but math. My dd is at around a 6th-7th grade level. I found several things I like, but cannot decide between them. Bright Ideas Press Illuminations curriculum - I just found out about this one. I like how it schedules pretty much everything and like how it has choices for grammar and writing. It is kind of pricey and I am guessing it cannot be resold since it is a download. The main thing keeping me from purchasing is that there is no MOH volume 4 out yet which creates somewhat of a gap between their grade 3-8 curriculum and the high school level. My dd has not had any American history yet...don't know how that happened, so we need to get that in there somewhere between now and 9th grade. Anybody have any pros and cons for this curriculum or reasons not to use it? Trisms - I like that it goes through high school. We would probably start with History Makers which would work well because it has an overview of history-maybe it would fill in the gaps? I know it is supposed to be independent, but just not sure how easy it would be for my dd to follow. I am also on the fence about this one because I am not sure if I like IEW for writing...I have looked at it in the past and felt confused by it all...so we would have to sub in something else which would defeat the purpose of the all in one idea, however, everything else about the curriculum I like. Anybody use this one and not like it? Oak Meadow - It looks really good for the 6th-8th grade years just not sure how strong their grammar and literature would be. If I used it I would probably be tempted to add things to it, which might be more work than it is worth? I know a lot of people like it though...so maybe I am missing out on something good? Anyway, need to find something my dd can be somewhat independent with. Any input on these choices is appreciated.
  19. Anyone know what happened to the Integration Guides? I downloaded one for MOH Vol. 1 early in the Fall, and now I went back to get one for MOH Vol. 2 and there are none for MOH at all. :( Does anyone have a MOH Vol. 2 they can email me? I don't know if it was ever actually OUT, but I most definitely do have the Vol. 1, so I know I'm not completely crazy. Blessings, Sandwich

  21. This is our first year using this program. I originally got it for my 4th graders yet added my 11yo and 12yo when MFW proved to be way too much for them. They enjoy it, my 11yo because of the research activities, my 12yo because it is "easy" and there is my concern: this program seems like a joke to use for high school even with the additional activities! I guess I'm glad they don't have pages of reading given their science (Apologia) and I like that there are not endless papers to write yet at the same time I am not sure I want to count this as a credit of high school history! They are reading supplemental books (Cat of Bubastes, for example) and completing the Literature Guide for MFW when there are writing activities (Gilgamesh paper, etc.). Did anyone else feel that MOH was not enough for high school? I'm not even sure that I want another program that is meatier as my dc do not have a spare second extra in their day as it is! Is it OK to have history as a "lighter" subject like this?
  22. 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:
  23. I ordered Mystery of History to use with my son, starting first grade this year. I just got it a week ago and looking through it, I realize that although it has activities for a very young child, the actual lesson text seems to be just too advanced for him. I am sure that he won't understand any of it. Help! Has anyone used this for a first grader that can offer some advice? How did you adapt it? My other options are to shelf it until 5th grade and find a different curriculum (but which one???), or not use one at all and just use it as an outline to read supplementary books from the library. Since I'm a homeschooling newbie, I am not totally comfortable with the last option. But finding a new choice... I spent so much time researching in the first place and MOH was the one that had everything I wanted... I wanted to be able to cycle through world history in no longer than 4 years, I really liked SOTW but wanted something in that format only with a Christian perspective and biblical history woven into it. I also don't want to pay a ton of money just for one subject. What else is there? Thanks in advance for any advice you can share!
  24. I've never seen this except for the samples and I'm wondering what attracts you to this book over other books that are written in a story-like fashion?
